    My wife works for Company A.

    I work for Company B.

    We both use Outlook 2007 Calendars on Windows PC's, we both have IT departments that won't allow us to connect the two together.

    We want a single calendar in Outlook because we're both comfortable with it, don't want to manage an online calendar out of Outlook. What we're trying to do is share a joint calendar for the kids, sporting events, practices, the usual family stuff, and have it show up in Outlook as the secondary calendar. A green tabbed calendar that sits behind and overlays the primary blue tabbed calendar. This way, our extra-curricular activities are always in sync, pushing wirelessly to our iPhones and iPads.

    Anyone know if there's a way to do this via iCloud? We both have iDevices, just need to figure out a way to get the one iCloud calendar to appear in each of our instances of Outlook as described.

    TIA

    Are you sure you work will let you do that to their Computers? The iCloud Control Panel Application will let you Sync iCloud Calendar with Outlook. I use to do this before moving to the Mac. However, I am not sure about having your Exchange Calendar and the iCloud Calendar in one Outlook Profile. I was not using Exchange myself when I did this. You may want to consider using www.icloud.com for your shared calendars since you will mostly look at them on you iOS Devices anyway.

    Thanks Mike, and using iCloud directly is our last resort.

    As power businesspeople, we're living in our Outlook Calendars and need something that integrates in there, finds open appointment times, resolves scheduling conflicts. Using iCloud will definitely put shared appointments into our iDevices, but it won't integrate at all and it won't resolve scheduling issues. Might actually create scheduling issues instead.
