Office 365 (Apple Calender/iCal) - Subscribe To/Open Another Person's Calendar

Best Effort Support Only

This document contains instructions on using a non-Microsoft email client, such as Apple Mail or Thunderbird. Microsoft does not recommend these clients for use with Office 365, and there are often significant limitations in client functionality as a result.

Because of this, the DoIT Help Desk is only able to offer best effort support for these clients, and certain issues may require the use of a Microsoft client in order to be resolved. For more information on Office 365 client support, please see: Office 365 - Which clients/protocols will be supported?.

This article explains how to add another person's or resource's calendar using Apple Calendar/iCal.

Note: At a minimum, you will need to be granted "Full Details" or above in order to open a calender.

These instructions assume you have been granted appropriate permissions to the calendar you are attempting to interact with. If you have problems interacting with the calendar, contact the owner of the calendar.

Configuring Account Settings

  1. Before opening the calender, you must first make sure that your account is set up correctly and connected to your Contacts. Go into System Preferences and click on Internet Accounts
