Windows 10 Calendar App - Shared Calendars not showing RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am using windows 10 Calendar app and when adding an account i do not get my shared calendars that are linked to the account (office365). I do not want to add another email / calendar account because that does not solve my issues of the shared calendars not showing. When using outlook 2013, 2010 or office365 the shared calendars appears and are accessible, they are also visible when using android / ios.

    Please could someone advise, if this is not a feature within the app i will use outlook however it would be nice to be able to use the windows 10 app for mail and shared calendars.

    Thanks in advance

  • Hi Laurie,

    Please check this guide to sync your Google Outlook or other calendars in Windows 10.

    Besides Calendar app, Mail app can be regarded as an email box app, also add your account on it.

  • I'd like to second this request.  

    You can't see calendars that have been shared with you (So are not part of your personal outlook account).

  • Same problem with  me. I have a bunch of shared calendars that i want to see but don't show up on the calendar App in windows.

  • This response does not fix the issue of a calendar that has been shared, cannot be accessed.

    Likewise shared contact folders cannot be seen.

    This is a big failing, which is such as shame as I really liked the new look.

    I guess everyone is looking at the windows 10 update that causes office 2016 to die? which is why I was looking at Mail to see if I could at least use that.

  • This answer does not answer the question.

    If somebody shares a calendar with me I on my gmail account I can see his calendar in read or read/write mode on the web interface. But those shared calendars do not show up at all in the calendar app on Windows 10.

    Actually the same is true for shared calendars on the iPhone calendar app but here it's sufficient to install the google calendar app to show also the calendars shared with me. I didn't find a solution yet for the Windows calendar app. So I will not receive any appointment desktop notifications and have to keep the calendar open in my browser all the time.

    Edit: There might be a solution by enabling the sync of those shared calendars manually. For gmail you can do this here.

    Still I don't know if it's technically impossible or forgotten by developers of the mail app to implement listing the non-subscribed calendars and allowing to subscribe to them.

  • I think I accidentally figured this out. I was used to this functionality in my previous job using Google for business, and my new job we use Office 365 for business. I didn't want to go back to using Outlook, as it just seems old and tired to me. The calendar app in Windows 10 looks and feels modern to me, so I wanted to use that. However, I couldn't figure out how to view my co-workers calendars in it. I was bummed.

    Then I downloaded the Outlook app on my iPhone. Last night I was playing around with the settings to change my email signature. I found the area where you can add other calendars to the Outlook app on my phone. I added a shared calendar of a coworker, however it didn't seem to work on my phone. I had to exit the Outlook iPhone app and get back in, and then my coworker's calendar showed up on my phone.

    I get to my office this morning, and what do you know, my coworker's shared calendar is showing up on my Windows 10 calendar app as well! 

    Looks like the mobile app team gets the features first, then the Windows team follows up with them lol.

  • Check my answer above, the secret to doing this is by adding shared calendars in the mobile Outlook app, then they will show up in the Windows 10 app. At least it worked for me using my iPhone.

  • This worked for me as well. I added a Shared Calendar in the Outlook app on my iPad. It updated right away in the Outlook app as well as the Calendar app that comes with the iOS. Then on my Windows 10 computer, I opened the Calendar app and synced my calendar. Then the shared calendars appeared.

    I just wanted to share that this also works on Android.  Download the official Outlook App, configure O365 and sync, open calendar and add a shared calendar.  It immediately showed up on the Windows 10 Mail app.
