Add a Delegate
Delegation vs. Calendar Sharing vs. Calendar Permissions
When you share a calendar with a co-worker, it is seen as more of an FYI of their days/weeks ahead. With the added options within calendar permissions, you have the ability to choose just how much of your calendar your co-worker sees.
If someone delegates a calendar or email to you, you are then responsible for helping to manage either calendar entries or email messages. As a delegate of someone’s Outlook account, emails and meetings will include the information that they are “sent on the behalf of (the person to whom you are a delegate)” instead of coming directly from your account.
How to add a delegate:
- Click on File to access the backstage view.
