Create Departmental or Multi-user Calendars

Whereas the primary (personal) calendars in Exchange are owned by an individual Bowdoin user account, departmental or multi-user calendars are owned by groups of users. Bowdoin departments can use departmental or multi-user calendars to share information about events and deadlines with their members.

The instructions for using departmental or multi-user calendars are the same as that of personal calendars, except only those individuals with "write" privileges will be able to create appointments and meetings.

Creating Departmental or Multi-user Calendars

If you need a NEW departmental or multi-user calendar – Contact the IT Help Desk at helpdesk@bowdoin.edu or 725-3030 to create the calendar. You will need to specify:

  1. What name you want the calendar to be called
  2. The usernames of the person(s) who who will be administering the calendar. After the calendar is set up the administrator can share the caldendar with those who need to read and/or write to the calendar.

Viewing Departmental or Multi-user Calendars

Once your departmental calendar has been set up by the Help Desk, you can view it in Outlook or Webmail.
