Re-sharing a Calendar


This article describes how to re-share a calendar as a solution to shared calendars no longer working after the SFU Mail upgrade to Exchange Online.


How to Re-share a Calendar


You will need to know who is the owner of the shared calendar before proceeding.

In some cases, you may be able to check who is the calendar owner by taking the following steps:

  1. Create a New Event
  2. Select "<Your Shared Calendar>"
  3. Go to Scheduling Assistant
  4. See if there is a user who cannot be removed under Required Attendees. This most likely is the Calendar Owner.

Note: If the owner of the shared calendar is no longer reachable, send a request ticket on IT ServiceHub.

Note: Both the Calendar Owner and yourself need to be upgraded to Exchange Online for shared calendars to work properly.

Note: Please use SFU Mail on Browser while following this guide. Other email applications, such as Thunderbird, may not be able to add the calendar via invitation link.


PART A: Receive the Shared Calendar Invitation

  1. Take note on the Calendar Name and Calendar Owner (i.e., on a piece of paper or text file). Keep this as reference to prevent any accidents.
  2. Reach out to the Calendar Owner and ask to re-add your permissions on the shared calendar.
