If you manage all your email through Microsoft Outlook then you probably deal with the Outlook calendar as well. But if you’re using an external calendar, it can be a nuisance to sync the two.
There’s actually a way to combine them.
Go to the Outlook Calendar, then on the left-hand side of the screen, right-click on “My Calendars” and then “Add Calendar”. You can choose to add a calendar from any source, including the internet.
If you’re adding a Gmail calendar, for instance, just grab the calendar’s URL, then add it through this method. That way, you won’t have to deal with the calendar in a variety of different formats.
