How to Secondary Calendar in Outlook Exchange

SHARING A SECONDARY CALENDAR

In addition to your default Microsoft Office Outlook Calendar, you can create and share secondary Outlook calendars.

In addition to creating a second calendar you may also want to share this second calendar with other people.
The topic of creating and sharing a second calendar with other people is covered here. 

There are two basic steps in the process:

1. Create a new calendar.

2. Share the calendar with others.

CREATE A NEW CALENDAR

1. Open Outlook. Select Calendar

2. From the Folder tab click New Calendar.
