Hello,

I created a public folder on Office 365 last Friday but I could not see it in either Outlook or OWA by folder view. The autodiscover is also setup in my organization.  Our environment is hybrid with Exchange 2010 servers and Exchange hybrid server 2013.

 

Please give me some advices.

Thanks,

You might be missing some updates on the client, what is the Outlook version? See for example this article for supported versions:

http://blogs.technet.com/b/exchange/archive/2013/05/02/public-folders-and-exchange-online.aspx

Also, what exactly do you mean by hybrid? Do you have on-prem PFs? If so, you will need to migrate those. You need ALL the on-prem users to be on E2013 for them to see the cloud PFs. More info in the blog post above and here:

Test with a cloud mailbox, they should be able to see the PF. In OWA, you can display a public folder by right-clicking on favorites -> add public folder

This is not an on premise public folder. I created a brand new PF on Exchange hybrid 2013. It is Ex 2013 CU2. My Outlook version is 2010 sp2. We have on premise PFs but we don't plan to migrate them to Office 365.
My mailbox was migrated to Office 365 already. IN OWA, i tried to add public folder as you suggested. I got the error "Can' complete your request. No public folders are available. Check that a public folders deployment exist in this Exchange organization. If so, please try again.

You can't have PF both on-prem and in the cloud. It's clearly stated in the article above. Cross premises PF visibility will only work in specific scenarios too.

My public folder was created in Exchange online not migrated. Is it in this situation?

I beleive so, because you already have PF on-prem. You can easily sign in for a trial Office 365 account, create a new PF and test it in both OWA and Outlook to make sure that it is not indeed a client issue.
