Calendar Invites Show A List View in Outlook

My desktop guy Frank the Tank is out of town this week, so I am holding down the fort taking care of any desktop issues that come up. One of the issues that came up yesterday was that my CTO's Outlook wasn't displaying his calendar correctly when he would open up a meeting invite.

  • Click on the Change View icon
  • Select Calendar
