Microsoft released today an important update to its Outlook client on iOS, bringing support for shared calendars. With the new feature, users can easily share calendars with their contacts and manage permissions right from their calendar settings, an addition that makes the Outlook app an even more solid option on iOS devices.
The new feature is available today for Outlook.com users and will roll out gradually to all Office 365 users. Here is the full changelog for the 2.16 update:
- See who you’re sharing your calendar with by tapping on the settings wheel next to your calendar’s name. You’ll also see the default permissions that others in your organisation have.
- Share your calendar with other people, edit permissions or remove them without heading back to your computer.
Over the past few months, Outlook for iOS was also improved with a new scheduling assistant, better support for recurring events and more. If you have not used Outlook on iOS yet, we invite you to get it from the download link below.
