We are using Microsoft's Office 365 and have users with a variety of devices and applications (Mac/iCal/Mail, Windows/Outlook, iPhone, Android, etc.).


I am the administrator of the Exchange accounts. I have created four calendars that are viewable by everyone within our organization (just general "company-wide calendars").


Users with Outlook are able to view those shared calendars just fine. However, I'm not able to add the shared calendars with users using iCal.


If I add them as a delegate, they can see all my calendars, but if I just share the calendar, they get a "no access" error.


Here's where I'm setting the shared calendar permissions. I've tried setting them as Reviewer, setting the Default as Reviewer, and setting them as Owner.


Because it works fine in Outlook, I'm wondering if it's an iCal problem. For cross-referencing purposes, here's my issue at Office 365's community: Shared calendars not showing up in Apple iCal

    Same exact problem.  Has anyone figured this out yet?

    I am having the same exact issue.  Have you been able to find a solution for this problem?

    Hi All, after much trial and tribulation, this works for me on BusyCal. It is an app you can get on the apple store.

    Calendar should be created then shared with the busycal user. The link does not work, but add exchange account as you would on  Mac Calendar under preference>accounts. The go to the sharing tab and  click plus and type in email of person who shared calendar. It will auto populate. For some reason it does not work under delegation in Mac Calendar


    The  key and where I spent 4 days on the phone with apple and office 365, is  that the owner of the calendar has to share their calendar, named  :"calendar" They can just click the permission "show availability only."  Once they do that, any other calendars they have created and added you  as full permissions or details, you can see. I see nothing on their  calendar called "calendar"  Not the perfect solution, but it works. BusyCal is $30


    If this does not make sense feel free  to message me or I will respond here.
