Outlook.com – Windows 10 Shared Calendar Time Out


Windows-Dev

So I have been having a couple of issues with shared calendars on Outlook.com using Windows 10.

The first issue is the regular reminders I get telling me that  I need to ‘fix my account’ settings for my wife’s shared calendar. When I try to fix this, and provide her password and PIN, I am told that the PIN is incorrect – despite resetting her PIN.

The second issue is that (all of a sudden) my wife can no longer see my shared calendar – so time to fix this!

Simply sharing my calendar again did not work – I just got a spinning circle next to the “Adding calendar …” status and nothing happened.

To resolve the issue I had to remove my wife’s PIN from all of her computers. After rebooting them I re-shared my calendar and it worked.

Refer to the steps below to see how to reset your PIN and share your Calendar.

How to reset your PIN

 

To remove your PIN click Start, then type Settings and open the Settings app. Navigate to Accounts, Sign-in options and then under the PIN heading click the Remove button.

How to Share your Calendar

First access your Calendar here: https://outlook.live.com/owa/

Click Share from the toolbar and then select the calendar you want to share.

Share Calendar

Note: If you are already sharing this calendar with the intended recipient click the trash can icon next to their name to revoke their permissions.

Next, enter the email address of the person you want to share your calendar with then click the Share button and then Done.

Hope that this helps someone else out there!
