  • I run a personal calendar through the Apple desktop app which syncs fine via iCloud across iPhone / iPad / iMac at home, aligned to my personal iCloud.com email address.

  • My company provided me with a MacBook Pro running MS Office with Outlook for Mac desktop app and an Exchange / Office365 account aligned with my business email address.

I followed instructions below to add my Apple Calendar (shared as Public Calendar) to Office on web, as you can't do it via the desktop Mac app, and it worked fine for several months - since 'an update' somewhere along the line my iCloud personal appointments no longer share through to show into Exchange, though it's fine the other way & I can see both business and personal appointments on MacBook through Calendar app and in Calendar on iPhone and iPad.


I can also get my personal iCloud.com email to show up in Exchange if add the account, but I don't need that. The hope is to show my personal appointments (eg: kids School / Dentist / concerts in evening etc) through into my business calendar in different colours so I don't double-book myself.

Frustrated that I did have it working well until recently, but now it won't show anymore - the iCloud calendar entries just won't flow through even though I think I've tried every option. Has anyone else got it working?, or had it break & fixed it please?

Posted to the Microsoft Support forum too & they suggested that I deleted / re-added the shared Apple Calendar feed (!) ... Nope.

Anyone else struggling?

Don't be sorry - it has been a while, and I'm no further forward. I'm really hoping one day someone will show up and say they had the same thing & fixed it by XYZ method ...
  • If I can see Microsoft account data in Apple Mail and Apple Calendar, and in Google Calendar then I don't think it's an Apple problem in that direction.
  • What I can't see is Apple Calendar data in Outlook - and Microsoft dropped my ticket as it's not supposed to be supported in Mac Outlook Client, only their Web Client ???
I now see the MSFT help page is a broken link, so I'm not holding my breath (but I am missing personal appointments :mad:)

18-months later I just tried this again & it just works ... Don't know whether this was an Apple change, Office 365 or Mac client, but very pleased that it's now restored.

I was able to add an iCloud 'Public Calendar' via the web URL into Outlook / Office 365 Calendar online via Chrome browser, replicated straight through to Outlook for Mac client v16.38. There's a dialogue box I don't remember from before where I chose 'add to My Calendars'.
