You don’t always have to log in to a SharePoint site to check on the status of a calendar. Instead, connect the SharePoint calendar to Outlook.
1. In SharePoint, open the calendar you want to synchronize with Outlook.
2. Click the Calendar tab on the Ribbon and click the Connect to Outlook button in the Connect & Export group.
3. A dialog box appears to verify that you want to allow this website to open a program on your computer.
4. Click Allow.
5. A dialog box appears to verify that you want to connect to Outlook.
6. Click Yes.
The connection takes a few moments to establish. When the connection is made, the SharePoint Calendar appears in Outlook. Any changes made to the list are synchronized.
