How to create a Calendar Group in Microsoft Outlook 2013

When working in a team, there are occasions where you need to view several calendars at the same time. In Outlook 2013 you can create a Calendar Group which allows you to open all the calendars at the same time with just one click.

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.
