Shared mailbox

Shared mailboxes are useful when multiple staff are working together on a project or task and need all the emails to be located in a single account. This keeps your shared emails separate from your work emails. Up to 25 staff can access a shared mailbox to view, forward, reply and file emails.

Outlook Calendar

Primarily you use your calendar for managing appointments and meetings. You can create multiple calendars, link to other people's calendars, and share your calendar with other people.

You can view your calendar four different ways, (Day, Work week, Week and Month). You can delegate access to your calendar and suggest event locations and meetings rooms, meeting RSVP tracking, multiple time zones, directory details and Bcc (blind carbon copy) warning.

Calendar How to's

Google Calendar - bookings after 2 July

If you have booked a resource (such as a meeting room) through your Google Calendar, bookings from 2 July until 13 July will be secured for you.

Any existing bookings after 16 July will show the resource as being booked in your Outlook calendar, however the booking will not appear in the Outlook room calendar. Therefore, all resources booked after 16 July (in Google Calendar) will need to be rebooked in your Outlook Calendar.

You can view a list of existing Google resources that are affected, see Google Calendar. Note: all virtual rooms will also need to be rebooked.
