View another person's calendar in Outlook Web Access (OWA)

You can view the availability of other people by viewing their calendar before scheduling a meeting.

There are two methods to open an individual's calendar; by accepting a shared calendar invitation, or by using the 'Add Calendar' feature. This guide demonstrates both of these methods to access a shared calendar.
