How to create a Calendar Group in Microsoft Outlook 2013

The new calendar group appears in the Navigation Pane with a tick box for the whole group and individual tick boxes for each calendar. This means that you can open all the calendars in the group in one go by ticking the group calendar name. Or you can open individual calendars by ticking each box individually.
