Create a Team Calendar

A SharePoint Online tutorial by Peter Kalmström

SharePoint icon With the Office 365 personal calendar, you can create events to remember your important days. As the name implies it is a personal so no one have access on it. Only you can see what you have created.

As opposite a team calendar allows access for selected users, so you can share event information and read what other team members are sharing.

In this tutorial in the SharePoint Online from Scratch series, Peter Kalmström, CEO and Systems Designer of kalmstrom.com Business Solutions, shows how to create a team calendar and add it to a SharePoint page. This calendar will be shared by all users who have access to the page and can be used to show holidays, leaves, delivery dates and other information that is interesting for the whole group. Peter also shows how to enable versioning, so that you can track every change in the calendar.
