You can use Outlook 2003 not only to access email, but also to use an online calendar. This has several benefits: you can access the calendar from any Exchange client, including Outlook Web Access; other Nexus users can use your free/busy information to schedule meetings with you; and you can give other people access to your calendar so they can add or update events, or just view your schedule.

This guide will explain how you can import events from your existing Outlook 2003 calendar on your local computer into the online calendar, how to share your calendar with your colleagues and view their shared calendars, and how to use Free/Busy information to help schedule a meeting with other Nexus users. It assumes you have already successfully configured Outlook 2003 to access Oxford Nexus.
