    Hi,

    When I overlay say the meeting room calendar with my default exchange calendar, I notice that it seems to default the meeting room calendar as my main calendar. So everytime I create an appointment or try to add one, it automatically attempts to save this in the meeting room calendar. If the calendars are in side-by-side view then my exchange calendar remains the default.

    Anyone know how i can keep my exchange calendar as default when the calendars are in overlay stack view?

    Thanks in advance

    In overlay view, one is able to see all the event on all calendars at once, however they are still different calendars and each one has its own tab.
    You must select your calendar (and thus bring it to the forefront) when creating events. However if you click an area where an event is already scheduled on the other calendar, then it will think you mean to edit it and will bring the other calendar to the forefront, as a result your new event will be on the wrong calendar. In that instance, take the calendars out of overlay view to properly schedule your event.
    The bottom line is that your default calendar is ignored if you physically select a different calendar to create a new event, no matter what view you are using.

    Hi, thank you for your reply. I understand totally what you have mentioned above. The problem I have is. Even if I select my calendar and thus bring it forefront, if say I close outlook and reopen, it seems to default back to the other calendar. So in other works my calendar is not remaining as the default calendar when using the overlay view.

    I would like to insure that my calendar is the default in overlay view

    Hope that makes sense?
