Office 365 (Apple Calendar 10.9) - Assign "Read/Write/Modify" Permissions to my Calendar

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?.

You can give a delegate (user) access to your calendar and you can set permissions that define the activities that delegates can carry out for you.

Note: Apple Calendar does not support the ability to add delegates that are not within the Office 365 system. To do this, you must use the Outlook Web App. Please see Document 29847 is unavailable at this time. for instructions on how to do this.

The following topics are covered:

Permission Levels:

  • Read Only: Allows the user to view events in your calendar.
  • Read & Create: Allows the user to view events as well as create them. The user can edit or delete events they created, but cannot edit or delete events created by someone else.
  • Read & Write: Allows the user to both view events as well as create, delete, and edit them, regardless of who created the event.
