I am working with an office that is using office365.  How do you share a calendar with multiple people in the office where they can view and make appointments for you?  is there a way to sync the individual calendars to a master calendar? like the sharepoint calendar?

When sharing calendars and allowing others to edit, can this be done online or does it have to be done using the actual software.   I am only able to log in and use online, the actual users are on pc's with both the software and office365.

If by online you are referring to the Outlook Web App, then yes, it can be done from there as well. If you want people to be able to make appointments in other people's calendar, add them as delegate.

As for master calendar, you can use a SharePoint Calendar, a shared mailbox or public folders.

What I have not been able to see is how to automatically sync the sharepoint calendar with multiple outlook calendars.

It does not appear you can delegate people to manage your calendar using office365 web app. http://office.microsoft.com/en-001/outlook-help/manage-another-person-s-mail-and-calendar-items-HA102749416.aspx?CTT=1.  

Are you using this feature now?

You cannot add a delegate using OWA, you can only remove them/change some settings. Or share the calendar/publish it online.

Instead, you need to use either PowerShell or Outlook to add someone as delegate.

As for the master calendar, what is your requirement exactly? Have in mind that SharePoint calendar is intended for display only, it cannot send meeting requests. For actually sending requests, you need Exchange calendar.
