I need to create a shared calendar for our organization in O365 but I am having some trouble. I thought I set everything up correctly but when I try to view the calendar in Outlook, it is not showing as a calendar but it looks like a mailbox.
I went into O365 admin, Exchange admin center, public folders and created the public folder called "Office Schedule". Then under "Office Schedule" and set permissions for myself and one other user. Under that I created a subfolder called "Calendar" as the other shared calendars in my office (previously created by someone else) were set up.
Then I went into public folder mailboxes and added "Office Schedule PFMailbox" as the other previously created shared calendars appeared to be set up, they all say "Secondary Hierarchy".
When I went into my Outlook and went to "Public Folders" the new "Office Schedule" was there along with the rest of the shared calendars under All Public Folders, however, when I expand the Office Schedule folder to reveal the Calendar, the Calendar shows a small blue + sign like the parent folder has, while all the other shared calendars I have show an actual calendar icon with a 2 way blue arrow.
Can someone help me figure out what I am doing wrong?
YOu could have then set the permissions needed on the calendar of that shared mailbox
Your necessary users could have then added that shared calendar to their outlook
