4.Select "Add" and choose the person to whom the calendar will be delegated from the address book. Select "Add" again and choose "OK." 

5. Accept the default permission settings in the Delegate Permissions dialog box. By default, the delegate can read, create, and modify calendar items.

In order to use your access to send a meeting request you have to:

1. Open Outlook on your computer.

2.Select "Open a Shared Calendar" and open the delegated calendar.

3. Click "New Meeting in the New group on the Home tab. Enter the meeting attendees, location, and start and end times as you would do on your own calendar.
