Ok, this one is driving me crazy. I have about 10 different calendars in outlook for various reasons. I want all 10 available but I don't want them all to show up every time I open Outlook. Hiding the group works while Outlook is open but as soon as I close and reopen. Every stinking calendar is displayed again. Also colors don't seem to stay consistent all the time. I will color a calendar yellow for example and when it reopens its purple. Outlook 2010, exchange 2010.

Works great for exchange calendars. But will not permanently hide the icloud ones.

Hi,

I am not an expert on icloud calendars. So don't have much clue on how to fix it. Following produre is specified in article http://support.apple.com/kb/ts4118 to hide duplicate calendars. Please try it.


1.Open Outlook and click on your Calendars in the left panel.
2.Remove the checkmarks next to any local calendars that appear here. These are typically under the My Calendars section of Outlook Calendar. Calendars that appear under the word iCloud are what is stored with iCloud.
3.Examine Outlook and make sure the events that you expect to see there are still displayed. If they are not, your data may not have been merged successfully. If this is the case, you may want to try the merge again. To do this, deselect the "Calendar & Tasks" option in the iCloud Control Panel. Then, click Apply and reselect the "Calendar & Tasks" option in iCloud Control Panel and click Apply.

Good instructions for hiding Calendars temporarily but will not save changes on exit.
