Middle Bookings Calendar

The booking calendar is available through Office365.

Begin by logging into your webmail account – http://webmail.meischools.com

**It is very important that you only use the booking calendar online.

Select the grid of squares – the App Launcher — in the top left corner of the screen and select the Calendar app.

For an uncluttered look, deselect the other calendars to view only the events on the Middle Bookings Calendar – only 1 calendar tab will now show under the months.

**If you add a booking to a day and would like a reminder, select the Add an email reminder link and choose the time frame you’d like and Send reminder to: Me.

Once you’ve selected Edit, the day will open in a new window.

Ignore all the info at the top of the page — anything you change there will be changed for everyone else as this is a shared and “live” calendar.

Select the time spot in the table you would like to book and enter your name.

Note that bookings in red are times that have been booked for the year – or an extended period of time. Please enter your bookings in black.

Once you are finished entering your bookings, or if you have decided to check another day, select Save at the top left of the window to save and close the event. If you want to choose another time, simply select a new date. *Please do not hit Delete!!
