I am trying to overlay a large amount of calendars (28 calendars to be exact) and when I try to use the overlay feature it is grayed out and not accessible. Does anyone have any suggestions?

What I'm trying to do is manage multiple conference room calendars. I need to send out a combined events calendar once a week. Right now I have to go in to each individual conference room calendar and add or remove any events/meetings that may have been added that week. So, that all of the events for the upcoming week are on one calendar.

Does anyone know a way to do that?

Thanks!

In Outlook 2013, I can overlay a shared calendar, and then click 'Overlay' again to remove the overlay. 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?

In Outlook 2013, when I overlay my calendars, the overlay shows on my mobile device. BUT, when I remove the overlay on my desktop, the overlay remains on my phone. Is there just a way to see 2 calendars (mine + a shared calendar) on my phone?

Is there any way to view multiple calendars with calendar names on horizontal axis and times on vertical axis?

Click Day view in the quick action bar. 2013 defaults to Schedule view after a number of calendars are being viewed.
