    Subscribe to an Internet Calendar in Outlook

    Subscribe to a Calendar in Outlook To stay informed with the happenings of your community group or sport club, you can subscribe to an internet calendar in Outlook. This will allow you to keep up with the schedule, but also any changes that happen to the calendar. Simply importing calendar entries will not accomplish the task. Don't Import Your Calendar Importing a calendar via an .ics file, for example, will most certainly give you the meetings in your calendar. However, if the creator of the calendar makes changes to the meetings in the calendar, you will not receive the updates. Outlook Makes Subscribing Easy Outlook provides a easy method of…

  • Publish Outlook Calendar to the Internet

    Publish Outlook Calendar to the Internet

    Why Publish an Outlook Calendar to the Internet? Before asking how to publish an Outlook calendar to the internet, we should know why one would want to. Many civic, sports, and community groups need a way to keep their members informed of events. Groups can invite their members to meetings to accomplish that task, but that requires keeping track of every email address needed for invites.

This allows for the refreshing of calendar entries and those changes…

It doesn't mean you can't have multilingual capabilities on your collaboration sites, but…

    Show the Skype for Business add-in in Outlook after switching to Microsoft Teams

    Recently I needed to schedule a meeting with a large group for a client. The client representative asked me to schedule it as a Skype for Business meeting because most of the attendees had not been targeted for Microsoft Teams yet and they didn't want the technology to get in the way during the meeting time.

New Skype Meeting Button Is Missing However when I opened Outlook to schedule the Skype meeting, I found that it was a little more difficult than I expected.
