How to Create a Group Calendar in Microsoft 365

Multiple people can read and edit a group calendar, making it a good way to promote productivity and collaboration among small business co-workers or organizational team members.

This tutorial will discuss how to create a group calendar in Microsoft Office 365 apps, including Microsoft Outlook, Outlook web access (OWA), and Microsoft Teams. We’ll review how to share a calendar so the people you choose can view and edit events in the calendar app. We’ll also discuss how to create calendar groups.

How to Create a Group Calendar in Microsoft 365

In general, there are two main steps to creating a group calendar:

  1. Create a new blank calendar.
  2. Share it with others so that they can view and edit the calendar.

We’ll go over how to do each step in Outlook on the web and desktop versions of Outlook.

Note: Microsoft has announced improvements in the way calendar sharing works. However, Microsoft says, “The improvements are planned only for calendars shared between people using Exchange Online.” In some cases, that means sharing a resource mailbox calendar or shared mailbox calendar will only work if the recipient accepts the sharing invitation using Outlook on the web, Outlook for iOS, or Outlook for Android, i.e., not an internally-hosted Exchange server. Microsoft says more improvements are in the pipeline.

Outlook isn’t the only place you can create a shared calendar. Microsoft Teams has shared calendar functionality, too. Here’s how to add a shared calendar in Teams.

Group Calendar vs. Calendar Group

In addition to creating group calendars, Outlook has several other ways of organizing calendars and viewing multiple calendars simultaneously. Calendar groups are a way to see combined schedules—not only for people but also for SharePoint calendars, internet calendars, and resources like room reservations.

How to Create Calendar Groups in Outlook on the Web

Depending on how your organization has things set up, you’ll see default calendar groups that may include:

  • My Calendars
  • People’s Calendars
  • Other Calendars

If those categories don’t work, you can create customized personal calendar groups in Outlook on the web.

  1. The pane on the left is the calendar pane. That’s where all the calendars you can view are listed. Right-click on My Calendars or Other Calendars and select New calendar group. Alternatively, select the More (three dots) icon next to an existing calendar group and choose New calendar group.

Follow these steps to create a calendar group from an address book or Contact list.

  4. In the Manage Calendars group, select Calendar Groups > Create New Calendar Group.
