Q:  How do I give someone permissions in Outlook 2010 to view my calendar and schedule meetings on my behalf?

A:  Delegate “on behalf of” permissions to your calendar (or other Outlook Items) by following these steps:

1.      Click the File Tab > Account Settings Button and select Delegate Access from the drop-down menu

2.      In the Delegates Dialog box, Click the Add Button

3.      In the Add User Dialog box, click in the Search box and start typing the first few characters of the person you wish to delegate rights to

4.      With the name highlighted, Click the Add button and click OK

5.      In the Delegate Permissions Dialog box, select the desired level of rights you would like the person to have for each Outlook Item (Calendar, Tasks, Inbox, Contacts, Notes, Journal)

6.      As an optional step, place a check in the box to automatically send a message to the delegate summarizing the rights you have given and/or select whether the delegate can see items marked as private on your calendar

7.      Click OK in the Delegate Permissions Dialog box

8.      Click OK in the Delegates Dialog Box

Delegate Level Definitions:

·         None (No rights assigned)
