c.  You will now be automatically taken to your Calendar, where you can view your own calendars along with the one that was just shared with you. When you want to go to your calendar again from your inbox page, simply click the app box icon in the header and click on the Calendar panel.

2. After you add the shared calendar, you will see it displayed next to your own calendar but with a different color scheme.

  • The level of detail that you see in the shared calendar will depend on the permissions the owner of that calendar gave you.  The lowest permission level is viewing only the busy times without specific details. 
  • If the owner gave you edit permission, you will be able to add, delete, and modify their calendar entries.
