Thanks for the feedback.
In the new OWA calendar experience, you can open another person’s calendar to clicking on the “Import calendar” link in the left panel and in the dialog, click on the “Import from directory” option. This will let your search and open another person’s calendar.

    In the older version, we could search for and view an individual's calendar without having to share calendars. Is this something we can do in the new outlook?

    When I search coworker's calendar in old version, I can search just by typing name in search box. Now I need to find coworker's name on left panel and select it. I need to check lots of coworker's calendar and left panel has so many coworker's name, so it is dificult to find a name who I want to check.

    Would be great to have an easy way to view another colleague's calendar when plannaing a new meeting.

    Can't figure out how to add someone else in my organization to "my calendars". I have to keep switching to the old version of outlook to do it.

    I use to be able to search other user calendar easily but is very inconvenient to add going to more step. please allow easier access to do so.

    Thanks for adding function. But What I want to do is see the calendar just after typing my coworker's name. In old version, I do not need to import before find a calendar. Please restore this function.

    Whenever I need to see other people's schedule so I can set up a meeting, I have trouble finding it when I use the new version. It was easier with the old version.

    The new outlook does not provide a way to view other person's calendar

    You need to be able to search for someone's calendar - currently I can't see a way to do that.

  • Ted commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    In old version, I can check the other person's calendar just after searching by search box. In new version, I can not do the same.
    Now I register the other person first, then it possible check the other person. But the old version is much useful.
    please restore this function.

    I cannot figure out how to show other colleague's calendars on my own calendar in the new version.

    In the old version I would simply search their name and their calendar would be added to the month view and I could easily see availabilities. In the new version, searching their name just searches for their name in my own calendar, and I can't see any other option to make their calendars visible

    In the new Outlook, I can't quickly see my coworkers' calendars via the search box. That visibility is my primary way of booking meetings, which is why I switched back to the old Outlook.

  • Sam C commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    It seems the search box has completely disappeared on my view. I can no longer search for events on my calendar nor search for peoples' calendars to look at.

  • Ted commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    When I check the other person's calendar, do I need to register him/her?
    Registration takes me time, so I hate this specification.
    Or how can I find the other person's calendar without registration?

    I really valued the ability to add a colleagues calendar via ther search box previously at the top of the left hand column. This has gone and the search box doesn't offer this function. I cannot find how to do this and it's led me to return to the old view.
