How do I access a shared calendar using Calendar on a Mac?

Once the calendar has been shared with you (see FAQ 2306 for details of how to do this) you can view it in Calendar on a Mac using the following procedure.

  • From the Calendar Menu select Preferences
  • In the window that appears, click on the Accounts icon at the top

Accounts icon

  • Click on the Delegation button

delegation button

  • Click on the + icon at the bottom of the Accounts I can access pane

Plus icon

  • Enter the username of the account you wish to see - and then click on the correct name revealed (there may be a slight delay at this point during which a "searching for users" message is displayed)

Type username here

  • If the account has allowed you access you should be able to tick it under the "show" column

The shared calendar will now be selectable in the left hand column of Calendar.
