Protect Your Calendar Privacy - ๐Ÿ”’ Keep Your Availability Secure

Hey there! If you're looking to keep your Outlook calendar private while still sharing your availability with others, I've got you covered. Here's how you can hide your Outlook calendar from others:

1. Open Outlook and navigate to your calendar. You can do this by clicking on the "Calendar" tab at the bottom of the screen.

2. On the left-hand side, you'll see a list of calendars under the "My Calendars" section. Locate the calendar you want to hide and right-click on it.

3. In the context menu that appears, click on "Properties." This will open the properties window for your calendar.

4. In the properties window, go to the "Permissions" tab. Here, you'll see a list of people who have access to your calendar.

5. To hide your calendar from others, you'll need to change the permissions for each person individually. Select a person from the list and click on the "Remove" button. This will revoke their access to your calendar.

6. Repeat step 5 for each person you want to hide your calendar from. Once you've removed all the relevant people, click on "OK" to save your changes.

By following these steps, you've successfully hidden your Outlook calendar from others. Now, let's talk about sharing your availability without revealing the details of your calendar:

1. Instead of sharing your entire calendar, you can create and share a separate calendar specifically for your availability. This way, you can control what information is visible to others.

2. To create a new calendar, right-click on "My Calendars" and select "Add Calendar." Choose the type of calendar you want to create (e.g., "Calendar Folder" or "Internet Calendar") and follow the prompts to set it up.

3. Once you've created the new calendar, you can add your availability to it without including any sensitive details. This could be as simple as marking blocks of time as "Busy" or "Available."

4. To share your availability, right-click on the new calendar and select "Share" or "Publish." Follow the on-screen instructions to share the calendar with the desired individuals or make it publicly accessible.

That's it! You've successfully hidden your Outlook calendar from others while still sharing your availability. Remember, it's important to regularly review and update your privacy settings to ensure your calendar remains secure. If you have any more questions or need further assistance, feel free to reach out. Happy calendar syncing!
