I am trying to get a Outlook shared calendar that one department uses to sync with one of the members iPhone. He has Outlook 2013 and the shared calendar shows up in Outlook but it not listed as an option on his iPhone or under iTunes calendar sync options. Any ideas how to get the calendar available on his iPhone?

Are you using office 365? this is the only way it is possible to share calendars and have them viewable in the outlook app. There are some 3rd party tools that do this but they are not great. If it is office 365 you must share the calendars from OWA for this to work.

No using Outlook 2013 as part of Office 2013. There is no way to have a shared calendar from Outlook 2013 sync with the Calendar app like the primary calendar in Outlook 2013 does?

Are you using Exchange server?

If yes, try Outlook for iOS app or OWA for iOS app.

The person wants the shared Outlook calendar to show up in the iOS calendar just like the primary Outlook 2013 calendar does, is this possible? Doesn't seem like it would be that difficult if its already possible to have the primary Outlook calendar sync with the iOS calendar. Why would additional apps be needed if the iOS calendar can already communicate with Outlook?

Try OWA for iOS app.

Outlook 2013 for Windows will only sync with a calendar of a real mailbox (i.e. With user name and password) if you want iTunes to do the sync or use Outlook for iOS app to do the sync.

This is the requirements of activesync and you either need to use a third party server side integration or use OWA to do the task.
