    I have searched ages to see if anyone has posted this thread but cannot find anything similar to the issues I am facing, so I hope someone would be able to help.

    I use iCloud for myself and my family, but my husband prefers to use Outlook since this is what his company uses and prefers to use just that calendar for all his work and personal events. When I create a family event in my iCloud calendar, I will send an invite to him at his company email, say "john@companyname.com". When he receives this invitation, he would accept it on his iPhone or PC laptop but it goes to his iCloud calendar (set-up as a default with his iCloud ID) rather than company calendar. Is there anyway to transfer the event to his work calendar instead? He has already set his work calendar as his Default calendar in the settings but that doesn't seem to help.

    Can anyone help? Thanks!

    A few questions..

    1. Outlook for Windows, correct?
    2. Is "john@companyname.com" his Apple ID?
    3. How is his work email setup in Outlook (IMAP, POP or Exchange)?
    4. Does he have the iCloud plugin on the Windows computer?
    5. "work calendar as his Default calendar in the settings"...settings for what?
