How to assign a delegate to manage your calendar in Outlook 2016

If you have an assistant or simply wish to allow another person to manage your Outlook schedule, you can assign them as a delegate, granting them permission to respond to email, create and accept meetings and perform other management tasks.

To assign a delegate to manage your calendar, click the File button then select Info > Account Settings.

Info menu

Select Delegate Access from the dropdown list that appears.

In the Delegates box, click Add, then select a name from the Address Book. Click the Add -> button to continue.

Each delegate you assign to your account can operate with different permissions. Choose from the following options:

  • None – no permissions.
  • Reviewer – read items only.
  • Author – read and create items.
  • Editor – read, create, and modify items

Check Delegate receives copies of meeting-related messages sent to me and Automatically send a message to delegate summarizing these permissions as desired. Click OK to complete the assignment.
