Before you begin

Understand the different types of Outlook calendar entries (Event, Appointment, Meeting) or take Calendar I: Outlook calendar basics.

Understand the basics of SharePoint calendars (what a calendar on a SharePoint site is and how you can find one) or take SharePoint calendars I: Make the most of your team calendar.


Does your company use either of these: Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 or Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007? Do you track shared schedules or events in a calendar on a SharePoint site?

If you answered yes to these questions and you are also an Outlook 2007 user, you'll want to learn how to connect the SharePoint calendar to Outlook so that you can view and update the calendar right from Outlook, a program that you're probably already using every day.
