Multiple Calendars in Outlook 2010

Last Modified: 2012-05-11

My boss just got Outlook 2010 and he is trying to view multiple "calendars" at the same time. We have several calendars like "Company Calendar" "Company Bids" and "Vacation" that are actually listed in my Outlook (2003) as "Public Folders" Anyway, he would like to be able to add them to the left viewing pane when he clicks "calendar" In fact, I have a co-worker who can click "Calendar" and all the Public Folders show and he has them checked and therefore they all show at the same time. Unfortunately, he can't remember how he set it up. When I try to add a "calendar" a window opens up and asks for a name. Then it can't find the name "Company Calendar", for example, and I click "show more names" and then it just opens a list of everyone on my domain and a few e-mail distribution groups. I hope this makes sense. Please help.

I always did this using the shortcut in the left hand pane.

However, I haven't used 2010 much. It is possible that shortcuts are still used for quick access to Public Folder items.

Using the Folder List view, expand Public Folders and find the Calendar(s) in question. Click and drag said Calendar(s) to the Calendar view on the Navigation Pane (where it's listed as Mail, Calendar, Contacts, Tasks, Notes, Folder List) and then go to the Calendar view. You should see the Calendar now in the My Calendars list to select (checkbox).



I clicked on Folder List > All Public Folders > Company Calendar, clicked on Company Calendar and dragged down to "Calendar" and it has the circle and slash and will not drop into "Calendars"
