Share a calendar using Outlook and Windows SharePoint Services

Share a calendar using Outlook and Windows SharePoint Services
Collaborate and keep track of team events by using Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services and Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 together.

About this course

This course includes:

  • Two self-paced lessons and two practice sessions for hands-on experience.
  • A short test at the end of each lesson; tests are not scored.
  • A Quick Reference Card you can take away from the course.


After completing this course you will be able to:

  • Share dates and calendar details using a SharePoint site.
  • Use Outlook to view the dates and events as a calendar (and view your own calendar side by side with the SharePoint calendar).
  • Quickly switch from Outlook to the SharePoint site to add or update appointments in the SharePoint list.

Before you begin

To do the practice sessions in this course, you must have access to a Web site based on Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services (a SharePoint site) and you must have permissions to add and edit items in an events list. If you're not sure about whether you have these things, ask your systems administrator.

If you don't have a server running Windows SharePoint Services but if you do have Internet access, you can sign up for the Windows SharePoint Services Trial which will allow you do the practices. The trial will allow you to try out SharePoint for a month without having to set up your own Windows Server environment.

Wondering if there's an easy way to share a calendar with your coworkers? Wouldn't it be nice to have a central location for tracking corporate events, conferences, business travel, or even vacations?

If you're using a Web site based on Windows SharePoint Services, sharing this type of information may be just a few mouse clicks away. Even better, with one more click of the mouse, you can see and access that shared information right from Outlook 2003. This course will show you how.
