My employer runs MS Exchange and provides me with a work email address and Outlook. My employer requires me to use MFA to login to access my email and work calendar. I would like my partner to be able view (not edit) my work calendar appointments and for my Outlook calendar to include the appointments that she has made for family events, so that I can view and edit them. (There is nothing confidential in my work calendar and my employer doesn't mind if my partner sees when I am busy in meetings etc.).
If I buy an MS 365 personal licence for her to use on her laptop, can we arrange it so that she can share my work appointments (without her having to enter my work password etc., of course) and I can share her family calendar?
Thanks for your advice.

Yes, it is possible to set up a configuration where you can share your work appointments with your partner and also share her family calendar in Microsoft Outlook.
Here is how you can achieve this:
By following these steps, you and your partner can share and view each other's calendars without the need for her to enter your work password. Your employer's MFA requirement will only apply to accessing your work email and calendar from external devices or locations, not for sharing calendar information with trusted individuals.
It's important to note that the availability and specific steps may vary depending on your organization's Exchange configuration and the version of Outlook you are using. It's recommended to consult with your organization's IT department or Exchange administrator for any specific guidelines or restrictions related to sharing calendars in your work environment.
You can use Outlook for Mac to accomplish the steps mentioned earlier. The process for sharing calendars and granting permissions is similar across different platforms, including Outlook for Mac. Here is how you can proceed:
By following these steps, you can share and view calendars between Outlook for Mac and Outlook on other platforms, allowing you and your partner to coordinate and manage your schedules effectively.
Keep in mind that the exact steps and options may slightly differ in Outlook for Mac compared to other versions of Outlook. However, the basic principles of sharing and granting permissions remain the same. If you encounter any difficulties or have specific questions, you can refer to the Outlook for Mac documentation or consult with your organization's IT support for further assistance.
I hope this helps!
