Allow opening and viewing assorted sharepoint calendars within OWA / Online Calendar view.
You can open/link a sharepoint calendar in Outlook offline so it can be viewed easily, but you cannot do the same inside of OWA / online calendar. It would be nice to be able to view all my calendars in one place with appropriate overlays so I can easily see all relevant events.
Come on Microsoft - seriously? I am trying to get my company using the features in Office 365 including SharePoint so we can share what is going on with our projects and something as simple as this could derail this whole process since a lot of staff use OWA. This is basic! We don't need a lot of the useless new stuff you are putting out there if the basics aren't there. Fix this ASAP please!
Have to say though looking at the age of this issue I am not hopeful. I sometimes feel these voice of the customer things are useless. Please prove me wrong.

So.... you can do this in Outlook Desktop app and not in Outlook Web Access (OWA)? Most people here use OWA so this is a limitation that is for sure.
I want to thank the people who posted and commented on this so I know to stop trying to work out how to add a SharePoint calendar to OWA.
How did any program manager NOT consider this as an efficient way to work in O365 - where you have the flexibility to linkin and overlay sharepoint site calendars! Not everyone has Outlook desktop!
Agreed. This is silly. Please add the functionality.

Come on Microsoft... you're giving us streaming video when businesses can't see SharePoint calendars in OWA? The old adage is "Time is money" and calendars are all about time management! Still waiting...
I have a need case for this for ~400 people at my location. It's absurd that you can do this in Outlook, but not OWA, WHEN EVERYTHING IS in Office 365!

Agree, we are looking for this too.
Yes, we definitely need this. I have just spent an hour searching how to as I assumed it must have been already possible. Currently there is no good way to view a Sharepoint Calendar on a mobile device.
Absolutely agree, it would be very beneficial to link SharePoint Site calendars to OWA.
