I know it's possible to overlay calendars in Outlook (2016) or to view them separately, side-by-side:

[Calendar 1 / Calendar 2] or [Calendar 1] [Calendar 2]

I would like to have two groups of overlayed calendars, because I share calendars with several colleagues, but would like to be able to focus on my own calendars. So something like:

[Calendar 1 / Calendar 2] [Cal. A / B / C D]

Is this possible, and if yes, how? My google-fu failed me, but maybe there is no such option in stock Outlook.

Right click the calendar icon in Outlook (the one in the bottom left) and choose "Open in new window". This will create a new calendar window with which you can make another overlaid calendar set.

  • Not exactly what I had in mind, so I won't mark it as the accepted answer, but definitely a good workaround. Thanks! Jul 10, 2019 at 6:26
  • Having them in the same window is not really an option unfortunately. You can suggest features to MS if that's something you would like to be able to do. office365.uservoice.com
