Using iCloud and Outlook to share a calendar between the boss on the move and a secretary

Is this a runner?

Boss loves to sync Outlook calendar and his iphone via a cable but I can move him to icloud

If I add icloud to the secretary's PC can she and edit his calendar?

Use the icloud sharing functionality in this link. Secretary will need to use a Mac or an iPhone/iPad. If on a non-Mac, she can use iworks to create an apple ID and get to the cloud.

The link posted by Sunit above is several years old and not quite a relevant for the latest versions of iCloud and OSX.

First you are not clear what version of Outlook your boss has?  Outlook on OSX or Windows? What version?
It would also be good to know the iOS version on the phone .. just to confirm the variables but the most relevant is the version  and OS of Outlook.

For example Outlook 2011 on OSX does NOT support sync with iCloud

Basically the only online service with calendars that Outlook supports is Exchange/Office365 services .. and this would be the route I recommend if your boss is tied to Outlook.  

iCloud works well with OSX default Calendar application and this syncs nicely with iPhone and the web interface to iCloud can be used by the secretary or using an application that supports CalDAV but unfortunately Outlook doesn't support it

Hi,

All users would be using Outlook 2013 on Win 7 Laptops  

The boss currently syncs with his iphone via usb cable  
Im hoping to move them all to icloud for contacts ... so the assistant can amend his calendar

Is that explained better?
