Tip of the Week – View Outlook Calendars Side-by-Side or Overlaid

In Microsoft Outlook, you can view multiple calendars at the same time, either side-by-side or overlaid into one merged calendar. This can include your calendars, shared calendars from other people and SharePoint calendars.

Open Calendars in Side-by-Side View

  1. In Calendar, in the Navigation Pane, select the check box of another calendar that you want to view.
  2. The calendar that you selected opens next to the calendar that already appears.
Select multiple calendars to view them side-by-side

Open Calendars in Overlay View

  1. Once you have multiple calendars displayed side-by-side, you can overlay them to view appointments together.
  2. Click the small arrow in the Calendar title tab to overlay that calendar with the one to its left.
  3. Repeat step 2 to view as many calendars that you wish to overlay.
  4. To go back to side-by-side view, click the arrow again and the overlay is removed.
  5. To remove calendars from this view, click the X in the Calendar tab.
