Outlook Web App shines when it comes to efficient calendar delegation and management

To show how Office 365 can increase productivity for everyone, including top-level executives, Arushi Agrawal collected feedback from executive admins at companies that had considered Google Apps for business, but instead chose Office 365 for their cloud-based productivity solution.

Outlook Web App (OWA) “provides a clearer, more thorough and richer calendar delegation than Gmail,” Agrawal writes on the Office Blogs.

For example, enabling the calendar sharing and delegation option in OWA is “convenient and intuitive (which is by no means the case in Gmail!),” Agrawal writes. “OWA displays the calendar share button at the top right corner of the calendar, making it easily visible and accessible. This design approach is duplicated by Gmail, and yet in Gmail the Share button is not used to share the calendar, but instead to post on Google+, which prioritizes public sharing over business productivity. This can confuse users who want to manage and share their calendars.”
