Office 365 (Apple iCal/Calendar) - View and Hide Calendars

Best Effort Support Only

This document contains instructions on using a non-Microsoft email client, such as Apple Mail or Thunderbird. Microsoft does not recommend these clients for use with Office 365, and there are often significant limitations in client functionality as a result.

Because of this, the DoIT Help Desk is only able to offer best effort support for these clients, and certain issues may require the use of a Microsoft client in order to be resolved. For more information on Office 365 client support, please see: Office 365 - Which clients/protocols will be supported?.

This document explains how to view and hide calendars in Apple iCal (Mac OS 10.5-7) or Calendar (Mac OS 10.8-9).

View and Hide Calendars

In iCal/Calendar, a calendar is either visible or invisible. All calendars with view enabled are visible in the iCal/Calendar window at the same time. Color coding allows them to be distinguished one from another. iCal/Calendar will shift and shrink event blocks to show events that occur at the same time or overlap. This view/hide paradigm works for all calendar views (Day, Week, Month, Year).

To set a calendar's visibility

  • Click on the Calendars menu at the top left of the iCal/Calendar Window to show the list of calendars.

    Calendars menu

  • Click on the empty checkbox next to the calendar you wish to view.

    Calendar listing

  • Click on the checkbox next to the calendar you wish to hide or show.
