Frequently asked questions:

How often does the Outlook Calendar update?

The Outlook Calendar updates every 10 minutes. This means that once you have added or edited an event, it can take 10 minutes for the screen to update and show the latest information.

How long will the Outlook Calendar show for?

Outlook Calendar will show for the time you have set in its duration within the playlist. You can edit this by going to Playlists and clicking on the time duration shown next to the Calendar.

How can I show events from my Google calendar?

Check out our Event Calendar app for Google calendars.

Can I add multiple calendar app instances with different Outlook accounts?

Currently, the app can only be used with one Outlook login across as many app instances as you create. For example, if you create an instance of the app and login with your Outlook account then moving forward you can only select calendars from that specific login. The app does not have the ability to mix and match alternate Outlook logins to pull in calendars from more than one account while being used.
