How do I know if I have a ShareURL?

The best to find out if you have a ShareURL (a personal or public) is to log into the ShareURL application.

Is there a comparable application/feature I can use?

Yes. You have multiple options to share your (or resource) calendar in Office 365 - depending on your needs.. Please see the desired document: User/Service accounts | Resource accounts.

Remember, ShareURL and Office 365's calendar publishing feature only provide a "read only" view of a calendar. If you are looking to provide "edit" permissions, use the instructions within the "Sharing your calendar internally" section in the User/Service account document.
