Add CardDav, CalDav, and IMAP synchronization support for G Suite
Office365 business lack of support for
* IMAP to GSuite
makes it impossible for me and my clients to use for the following reasons:
it would require maintenance of two sets of calendars, contacts, and emails
many applications (JIRA, etc.) have integrations and Office365 does not and will not likely ever have the same level of developer support.
Thus, you will lose market share unless you add true synchronization features. Additionally, the google sync tool only works with Outlook desktop.
* Windows 10 Mail and Calendar support these features so should 365.
* Your 'premium' MAIL service that does not even do what the free Outlook accounts does (IMAP with G Suite works).
* Without a sync to G Suite (paid google accounts) I cannot use Office365, skype, pbx, pstn, or pstn conference.

This remains a major pain point with our Office 365 service. In particular shared group calendars are basically inaccessible for our Linux users except via web.
I've have been ******* my head over one literally for years, and years, and years. Through multiple different organisations, somehow I have always ended up looking a group calendaring, and each time I faceplant when it come to figuring out how to bring different world into a unified system. Microsoft should be better here.
Microsoft doesn't offer CalDav because they can't or because it's too difficult to, it's because they don't want to. They acquired an amazing Calendar years ago, Sunshine, and the shuttered it. I am required to use Exchange for work and my family shares an IOS calendar - which Outlook will not display. As a result, I use Fantastical2 for my calendar - it is another really great calendar application. As long as Microsoft thinks it is a competitive advantage to hobble their products, they will.
I really need this support. CalDAV / CardDAV are a standard since years. Thanks for adding this.
And I do notice that the obligation of ticking the acceptation of the reuse of my email is not GDPR compliant (art.6.1.b as I expect the controler seems to base this on) as it is not a requirement to just post a message here.
I hate outlook i do not want to use it, also my primary OS is linux. I am in few 365 groups, i refuse to read those groups because they are not integrated in any standard mail protocol. This way to develop drive to nowhere
CalDav is critical

This is a massive issue. Absolutely massive. CalDAV needs to be added!
CalDav support in Exchange 365 server is much needed. Can't imagining it's not there.
