I setup a public mailbox and public folder and then added a public calendar through Outlook 2016 (PC)  I am able to add users and the PC clients on Outlook 2010 and 2016 can add to favorites and view the public calendar. I cannot get the mac outlook 2011 user to see the the calendar. I click on the Public folders button and see the name of the folder but it is grayed out along with the option to subscribe. I also don't see the public calendar.

Thanks!

Simply put, public - and "shared" for that matter - calendar viewing is somewhat broken in Outlook for Mac.  2011 in particular is behind the times.  See the following link for more details.

Which leads me to the first question:  Which version of Exchange do you run?  Many key things were changed in Exchange 2013.  

Another possible solution lies here.

Outlook for Mac 2016 is probably a better choice but, as my article on the app points out, it too has issues with "shared" folders.

My experience with both in our workplace shows that some workarounds were done by our sysadmins but it is still not a perfect solution.

As far as I understand it, what you want to do is only possible on a Mac if Outlook 2016 for Mac is installed with the latest updates.  I have it installed and it works just fine to access public folders in O365.  However, the experience of accessing them with the Outlook client for Mac is not similar to the Outlook client for Windows.

Refer to these references...

Does your O365 subscription permit you to download and install Office 2016 for Mac?  If so, that's what I would recommend to accomplish what you are looking to do.
