Creating a Calendar Event


This article goes over how to create a calendar event in Office 365. 

Creating a Calendar Event in Office 365

1. Locate the myOffice365 Channel on the main Welcome page. Click the blue link under the Resources section of the Channel. This will bring you directly to your Office 365 Calendar.



2. Once at your calendar, select the plus sign labeled "New" at the top of the page.

3. The event creation window will open. Here, you can choose the date and time of the event, as well as if it repeats and which calendar it should be put on. This is also where you will add people to the event.

4. If you are looking to see a person's availability, select "Scheduling assistant" in the top right corner. If you do not need invitee's availability information, type their names or email addresses in the "Add People" box and then skip to step 7.

5. Now a larger window appears with a calendar view. Type in names or email addresses into the Attendees box and you will be able to see when people are busy (you will not see event details, just that they are busy).

6. Once you've selected your attendees, Click OK on the top right of the window to be brought back to the event creation page.

7. Verify that all your event information is correct. Select "Save" on the top left corner of the window. Your event has now been created and the event invitations have been sent.
