How do I view my calendars side-by-side or overlaid?

You can open a second calendar in a new window and display up to 30 calendars in side-by-side view. You can also overlay calendars to see transparent calendars stacked on top of each other. This view is useful when you want to find a common free time slot on several different calendars.

In Calendar, the Navigation Pane shows a list of your calendars under My Calendars. This list includes your default primary calendar in Outlook that displays your free/busy time to other people, and where meeting requests that you accepted are saved.

Other calendars, or secondary calendars, can include calendars that you created to track a project, a personal schedule, or some other calendar event that you do not want to mix with the items on your default calendar. For example, your default calendar might be your calendar for work, and your second calendar might track your child's soccer team schedule.

Note: When you share your default calendar, appointments on secondary calendars are not displayed to other people and do not affect your free/busy availability.

Open a calendar in side-by-side view

  • In Calendar, in the Navigation Pane, select the check box of another calendar that you want to view.

    The calendar that you selected opens next to the calendar that is already displayed.

Note: At least one calendar must always be displayed.

Overlay the calendars

  1. In Calendar, in the Navigation Pane, select the check box of another calendar that you want to view.

    The calendar that you selected opens next to calendar that is already displayed.
  2. Repeat step 1 for each calendar that you want to view.
  3. On the Calendar tab, click the directional arrows.

Note: At least one calendar must always be displayed.

Remove a calendar from the overlay stack

  1. In Calendar, on the tab of the calendar that you want to remove from the overlay stack, click the directional arrow.

    The tab moves back to the right. The calendar that you selected is no longer displayed in overlay mode.
  2. Repeat step 1 for each calendar that you want to remove from the stack.

Note: At least one calendar must always be displayed.
