Office 365 (Outlook 2016 for Mac | Outlook 2011) - View multiple calendars at the same time

One can see multiple calendars at the same time, in a stacked overlay view to help see availability across calendars.

  2. In the Folder Pane (The column on the left side of the Outlook window that contains folders for each view, such as Mail or Calendar. Click a folder to show the items in the folder. Formerly the Navigation Pane in earlier releases.), check the box for each calendar you want to view.

    Calendars with check boxes listed in the Folder Panel

Each calendar you check opens on the same page, each calendar is transparently stacked on top of one another. In this combined calendar view -- overlay view -- it's easy to identify free/busy times among multiple calendars. When you see an empty time slot, you know there's nothing scheduled on any of the calendars in the overlay view.

Tip You can drag calendar items from one calendar to another to make a copy, as long as you have the required permission.
