When I perform the overlay feature, and 2 calendars both overlay on my phone's calendar. BUT, when I remove the overlay feature via my desktop, the overlay remains. So, 1) what do I have to do to remove the overlay? and is there a way to view and/or overlay 2 calendars (mine + a shared calendar) on my phone, without first going to my desktop?
