How to Create a Calendar in Outlook


Microsoft Outlook is a comprehensive desktop email client that provides additional features, such as contacts, tasks, notes and a calendar. In Calendar, you can add appointments, events and meetings you want to keep track of, and share calendars with other people. Outlook provides one default calendar, but you can also create additional calendars to keep track of separate items, such as sports schedules, vacation time or personal appointments.

  • Open Microsoft Outlook.

  • Launch the Calendar from the Navigation Pane, which is the column on the left-hand side of the Outlook window. It allows you to jump between different views in Outlook, such as Mail, Calendar and Contacts, as well as access different calendars and folders. If you don't see the Navigation Pane, click the "View" menu and select "Navigation Pane."

  • Click the "Calendar" icon on the "Navigation Pane."

  • Click the "File" menu. Select "New, Calendar."

  • Type a name for the new calendar.

  • Select "Calendar" from the "Select Where to Place the Folder" list. Click "OK." The new calendar will appear under your list of "My Calendars" in the Navigation Pane.

  • Click the check box next to the new calendar in the Navigation Pane. This will bring the new calendar into view, and you can begin adding items to it.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you have multiple calendars selected in the Navigation Pane, the calendars will display side-by-side.
