Office 365 offers some very powerful and simple ways to use calendars that are shared between staff members. If you're looking to share your own personal calendar, please follow these instructions. To open a shared calendar on your iPhone or iPad, have a look at here.

Please note: during the upgrade to Office 365, you may find you need to re-share your calendar with some members of staff. This is expected and affects people where one is on Office 365 and the other is not. This only lasts until everyone is upgraded.
