I created a Shared Inbox through the Exchange Admin Center in O365. Anyone I've set to "Full Access" permission can open the calendar of the Shared Inbox no problem. Also sending appointments to the mailboxes address is working. The problem is even though we've set Full Access permission the calendar cannot be shared out to other users. The "share" button is grayed out in Outlook as well as the OWA. Am i even going about this the correct way? Should i be using Public folders instead?

The "share" button might be grayed out if you have more than one Calendar selected, depending on the Calendar type. Try this:

Go to OWA -> Calendar. Press the little "+" signs to add the shared Calendar. Once added, right-click on it, select Share.

In addition, this might be blocked by sharing policies in your company. Check here for more info: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj657460(v=exchg.150).aspx

By adding the shared calendar, by default the added calendar sharing is grayed out. However there is a trick to violate the behavior. Please login to the OWA portal with your credentials (or the mailbox having rights to a shared mailbox). Then in the url field change the url to point to access the shared mailbox.

https://outlook.office365.com/owa/emailprefix@company.com/

Then go to calendar and you will be able to share it.
