2. In the Sharing invitation window, please add recipients you will share the calendar with, specify Availability only or Limited details from the Details drop down list, and click the Send button.

3. In the popping out Microsoft Outlook dialog box, please click the Yes button to go ahead.

When recipients receive this email and open the calendar in their Outlook, they will only view the appointments without details.
