And you can click Subscribe to subscribe to a public calendar or import a calendar stored in .ics format. If you subscribe to a publicly published calendar, the calendar is updated in your Windows Live calendar whenever the publisher makes a change to it.

To share a calendar, click Share and then choose from the drop-down list the calendar that you want to share. The screens that follow walk you through the selection of people with whom to share and the assignment of read-only or full-control permissions .
