UD Exchange Online: SharePoint Calendars

SharePoint calendars are used as common calendars for two or more individuals within a department or unit (for example, an Office Leave Calendar or a Committee Events Calendar). These calendars are not scheduled as resource mailboxes are, and they cannot be made public. Just like other shared calendars, these calendars can be used within Outlook.

Requesting a SharePoint calendar

You must request a SharePoint calendar by sending an email to askit@udel.edu. When you make your request, you will need to provide:

  • Your department's name.
  • The name of the calendar.
  • UDelNet IDs of people who will have access to the calendar, including teh access level for each.
  • Whether or not you want the calendar to be available to the UD community (anyone who can log in to UD SharePoint) or only to the following groups:
    • Design Access rights: These users can add, update, delete, approve, and customize the calendar view.
    • Edit Access rights: These users can add, change, and remove calendar appointments.
    • Read Access rights: These users can view calendar items only.
