Our sales team would like to share thier outlook calendar with an outside firm (free / busy information). This team hooks our sales members with potential clients and setup meetings on sales team members behalf. The issue I am having is that after reading thousands of articles on how to accomplish this, I am still not able to publish their calendars. I have the default sharing policy enabled and added mailboxes of users who want this feature. However when in Outlook I click on publish online, the only option I get is 'publish to WebDAV server'. Any hel p on this is greatly appreciated.

The easiest way to accomplish this is to configure the Exchange server for Federated Sharing. https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/ucedsg/2010/04/22/how-does-federated-calendar-sharing-work-in-exchange-2010/ has a blog on how it all works. https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd351109(v=exchg.141).aspx has more information.

Basically, you have to set up a federated relationship with the MS Federation Gateway. The other organization has to do the same. From there, you can create an organization relationship and share the calendar information that way.

Thanks

Federated sharing is the solution to this problem.
