Subscribe to a Shared Calendar in Outlook Web App

You can view and subscribe to shared calendars using Outlook Web App. To be able to do this, your mailbox needs to be onĀ  Exchange 2010. If it isn't you can request this via the IT Services Helpdesk. You'll know if it isn't because it will not look similar to the screenshots below.

Before you can subscribe to the shared calendar, you first need the owner of the shared calendar to have granted you access permissions. Once they have granted you access rights, you should be able to subscribe to the shared calendar so long as you know it's name.

After you have been granted access to the shared calendar, login to Outlook Web App via https://mail.aston.ac.uk, then switch to view the calendar by clicking Calendar on the left hand task bar, as shown below:
