    • The permissions are as follows:
      • None – user will not be able to view anything on your calendar.
      • Can view when I’m busy – user will only be able to see when items are scheduled, but not any information about them.
      • Can view titles and locations – user will be able to view the title of the item and if there is a location associated with the item they will be able to see that too.
      • Can view all details – user will be able to open the items and see all information related to your calendar.
      • Can edit – they will be able to see all details in your calendar as well as add items and respond to items on your calendar for you.
