Importing your Calendar into Outlook

There are generally 2 kinds of calendars you may already have - your own personal one, and invites or shares of a few "central" calendars the Co-op has maintained.

The central ones will be managed centrally and will be reshared to your new MS365 account once you are fully onboarded.

For personal ones, it is HIGHLY recommended that you move your work calendaring to Outlook, as it will become the central calendar solution for scheudling across the Co-op.
