Enter either the email address or display name of the user or group you wish to add. As you type, an auto-search should start to narrow down to the item you're looking for. Once the required user or group appears, click on it to select it. If you can't see the user or group you want, click on 'Search Directory' to try another search.

The user or group you selected should now appear in the permissions list with the default permission level, which is usually 'Can view when I'm busy'. Choose the appropriate permission level for them from the drop-down menu.

Note that more-detailed permission levels are available in the Outlook app in Windows.
