Outlook: Calendar Overlay
Calendaring has become an integral feature for many organizations. One request that I hear often is "Can Outlook create an overlay view of multiple calendars rather than side by side view?"
Unfortunately, Outlook (all versions, including Professional, Standar and Premier) does not provide the customized view based on different folder, but only single folder view. For this reason, two calendar, originates from two calendar folders, can not be overlayed. To obtain the overlayed effect, the only way is to manually export one calendar to a .pst and then merge it into another calendar. Otherwise, to acquire this feature, we must modifiy the source forms on which the calendar is based. For example, we must supplement the attributes that distinguish the items from different calendar. This feature is by design in Outlook.
