How to share calendar between outlook 2007 and 2010?

How to share calendar between outlook 2007 and 2010?

How to share an Outlook calendars with other people without Exchange server? This is a simple question with no easy answer. If you go to Microsoft website, they will tell you that you can share your calendar by e-mail or an exchange server account. We all know that is not we wanted. Anyway, the above case has been discussed in another article that I wrote: How to share my Outlook calendar with another user?

Let's try another scenario, you have one desktop in office, one desktop at home and one laptop in your car. One of them is Outlook 2007 and two of them are Outlook 2010. Here comes a very easy way to do it:
  1. First, you need to get an online calendar account such as fruux, or you can use your existing iCloud or Gmail account.
  2. Download EVO Collaborator for Outlook from EVO's Official Site and install it with administrator's privilege. This 5.5MB Outlook add-in is the magic that makes everything possible.

  3. Install ECO on your computer at work. In Configure profile(s), select Gmail profile at the left-hand side. Enter your Gmail account at the right-hand side. Click TEST to complete OAuth process. Once you quit Configure profile(s), synchronization will start automatically.
  4. Install ECO on your computer at home. In Configure profile(s), select Gmail profile at the left-hand side. Enter your Gmail account at the right-hand side. Click TEST to complete OAuth process. Once you quit Configure profile(s), synchronization will start automatically.
  5. Install ECO on your laptop on the road. In Configure profile(s), select Gmail profile at the left-hand side. Enter your Gmail account at the right-hand side. Click TEST to complete OAuth process. Once you quit Configure profile(s), synchronization will start automatically.
From now on, when you turn on any of your computers and open Outlook, ECO will start synchronization and update your calendar events automatically.
