Opening a shared calendar (Webmail)

When you have been provided with rights to another person’s Aalto calendar, you have three (3) options for opening the calendar in question via Webmail.

Logging in to Webmail https://mail.aalto.fi

Method 1

1. If you have received an email message about sharing a calendar (in the example: ‘Vuorinen Erja - ITS Arabia’), you can simply add the calendar to Webmail’s calendar view by clicking on the Accept button in the middle of the message window.
