Office 365 (Apple iCal/Calendar) - Create a New 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?.

This document explains how to create a new calendar in Apple iCal (Mac OS 10.5-7) or Calendar (Mac OS 10.8-9).

Create a New Calendar

There may be multiple calendars in iCal/Calendar, depending on how you set up your Mac computer and/or if you use other Apple computing devices (e.g. iPhone or iPad). When you configure your Office 365 account, the calendars associated with it will be shown in a group. Use that group in the instructions that follow.

  • From the File menu select New Calendar.
  • Select your Office 365 account from the menu so that iCal/Calendar will create the new calendar as part of your Office 365 calendars.
  • The new calendar will appear on the Calendars menu at the top left of the iCal/Calendar window with a default name of 'Untitled'. To modify the name, slow-click on the calendar and when the name is selected, type a new name.
