- [Instructor] By default, in Outlook on the web, I have one calendar called Calendar. It's very easy in the settings to add holidays for the United States or any other country. Religious calendars as well. There's a Birthdays calendar because I have people's birthdays. And I created earlier a Project calendar. Then, there are calendars for the Office 365, Microsoft 365 groups I belong to, but I can add other calendars as well. Click the Add calendar button, and, at the top, if you click Recommended, your workplace might have some recommended calendars for you that would be listed here, but if not, let me tell you what these other options are. If I want to add my own calendar that's kept either as a Google Calendar or as one of the Microsoft calendars, like Outlook.com, I can do that by clicking Add personal calendars, and then selecting the appropriate calendar. If I want to add a colleague's calendar, like Rob Molina, I can click Add from directory. It will come up with some suggested names. I can click his calendar, and add it to a group. If I'm adding people's calendars, the default is to add them to the People's calendars group, which will be created as soon as I add someone else's calendar, and I will have the permissions that Rob has provided, the access that he's set for me and for others. I can subscribe for a web calendar. I need a URL to do that. I can upload a calendar that's in a file that someone has sent me using the ICS standard, which is the standard that Outlook and other calendar applications use. I can add the calendar for a particular school. So, you put in your ZIP Code, and see what schools in your area have provided a calendar. For example, the Traverse City Area Public Schools. And I can choose the District calendar, High School, Elementary, or Middle School, pretty slick. Again, I can choose major holidays for different countries and different religions. I can sign into TeamSnap, which is an application for different games and events, and if I have an account, I can bring in my TeamSnap calendar. And then, I can also choose a calendar for different sports. So, for sports, I can find teams around me, or I can simply choose a specific sport, like basketball, and I'm going to choose the WNBA, and I can choose all WNBA games, but I simply want to have the Phoenix Mercury's games added to my calendar. There's nowhere here that I need to click save or anything else. I've added my calendars, and at some point in the not too distant future, when my calendar synchronizes, the WNBA games for the Phoenix Mercury will appear on my calendar. To modify a calendar that you have added, whether it's the Phoenix Mercury or Rob Molina, simply click and choose Rename, Remove, modify the color if you wish, and you can also add a charm, which is kind of cool. We don't have a basketball, but I have a soccer ball, and that will be good enough. So, I'm going to add a soccer ball. You can add charms to your own calendar. You can add charms to the public calendar. You can't add charms, at this point, to people's calendars. This is how you add a calendar in Outlook on the web.
