With the ‘Global Address List’ selected as the current displayed list, type ‘CVCC calendar’ in the search box to the left. This should highlight the CVCC Calendar in the address listing [Image 5].  Double left-click on the highlighted CVCC Calendar within the list to select it as the calendar you wish to add and click ‘OK.’

The calendar color can be changed by right clicking the calendar name; hovering over the ‘color’ menu selection and selecting the desired color [Image 8]. 

The menu shown by right clicking the calendar name includes an ‘overlay’ selection.  Left clicking this option will overlay the selected calendar with the calendar that is active in the display so that both can be viewed in one large calendar, rather than two calendars side-by-side.
