How to check who created an appointment in Microsoft Outlook calendar

NOTE: This solution applies to Microsoft Outlook 2016/2013/2010.

To solve the problem, you will first need to switch the calendar to the List view and then customise it by adding the Organiser field. Follow the instructions below to do that.

How do I do this?

1. Open Microsoft Outlook, go to the Calendar view and choose the View tab from the ribbon.

2. On the View tab, click Change view and choose List (Fig. 1.).
