Opening Personal Shared Calendar in Office 365 Outlook Web

I don't think this is possible, but you never know, so here goes.

I'm in the process of doing a cutover migration (Exchange 2010 to Office 365).

We have some users who have created second calendars and then shared them to others in the organization.

I've checked through Powershell to make sure these additional calendars were migrated.  They were indeed.  I've permissioned them properly.

I have no doubt they can be opened in the Outlook 2013 client once we do the cutover, but I'm wondering if there's any way a user can open another user's second shared calendar, to which s/he does have permissions, in Outlook 365 ?

When selecting Other calendar to open and searching the directory, you just get users, which will open their primary calendar, not a second one they've created.  I'm wondering if there's any way through Powershelll to automap that second calendar.  Ideas ?  Or just a no-go with Outlook 365 ?

Thanks.

I dont think you can. Even if you grant full mailbox permissions, the Calendar folder will be hidden from the shared mailbox view in OWA, and the Calendar part only allows you to open the default Calendar. Then again, if you grant them Full Access, they can just open the other person's mailbox/calendar directly in OWA by using the "Open another mailbox" menu.

suriyaehnop, that's a very good link.  Thank you.  It looks like an invite from that secondary calendar owner is the only way to go. There's no indication that if this is done through the client, the calendar will automatically be seen in OWA. I'll need to test that after the cutover.

Vasil, true, but Full Access still won't get to that secondary calendar. The user need to initiate the sharing via an invite.
