Office 365 - Outlook Web App Calendar
The University's student email platform Office 365 provides access to the Outlook Web App (OWA) calendar function which allows students to create and track appointments and meetings.
When you use the OWA calendar to keep track of your meetings and appointments anyone in the University's global address list can check your availability for their own scheduling purposes.
For an overview of the student email calendar function please watch the Introduction to Calendar in Outlook Web App online video (4:00) available in the Outlook Help - Calendar support resources.
An appointment is a block of time you mark on your calendar for a specific activity (eg. a lunch appointment, or to set aside time to work on a project).
Appointments can be a single occurrence or can be scheduled to repeat. Your appointment may be with other people but will only appear on your calendar.
If you want to share an appointment with other people within the University so that it appears on their calendars in addition to your own you can Request a Meeting.
A meeting is an appointment you share with another person. When you request a meeting, in addition to setting a time and subject, you'll add a list of attendees to invite.
If the recipients are in the shared address book, you'll be able to see whether they are free or busy. Most recipients will be able to respond to the meeting request by accepting, tentatively accepting, or declining your invitation. Like appointments, meeting requests can be for a single meeting or can be scheduled as repeating meetings.
