Enable Group calendars in Outlook for iOS
I really hope the Outlook Groups app is just a temporary solution. It's completely unusable and a terrible UI with regards to calendaring. No week or month view, no ability to see your personal calendar at the same time to check for availability or conflicts. We have many users who live on their iPhones throughout the day with little or no access to the desktop apps. Please add Group calendars directly to Outlook for iOS.
Thanks for the feedback. We are planning to bring group calendar to Outlook iOS and Android app in the near future.

two years later and your broken trash still can't function as well as G suite. It's getting harder and harder to defend using the Microsoft product when the admin at the company can set up everything they want on a free google account they set up in 10 minutes.
you are the software equivalent of Comcast.

Switch to your calendars in Outlook for iOS.
Open the left menu.
Tap the add calendar button.
Tap Add Shared Calendars.
Search for the person or group whose calendar you already have permission to access, then tap the add button next to their name.
Hope this helps you!
Is there any update on when? This has been in the works for years!
Can we please get an update on when this will release?
Simply needed for a positive user interface

Simple need that should be available.
How near? We are basing our whole ecosystem around TEAMS... .but yall gotta recognize that here in the US most business professionals are carrying iPhones in their pockets.
Cannot add a Group calendar to Outlook Android app. This still isn't available? I can search for it and I can see the name but when I click the + it but it gives me "Can't Add Calendar" You cant open Groups at this time. I was a HUGE Microsoft fan...but this is ridiculous its not available yet! Is there a workaround? I have Teams and the Outlook app. I can see both names but the fact it can pull that data for the name up and not just sync up when all of these exist within the Microsoft platform tools universe, is odd to me. Do you have an ETA on this?
We recently switched to a Group calendar to help clean up our personal calendars. Sharing calendars means that everything is shared, which is unnecessary and invasive. Sending calendar invites means that you have countless unnecessary items in your calendar and a messy inbox. We want to be able to share appointments that effect the group, as well as communicate upcoming city events that will effect business. Group calendar as it is in the desktop app is perfect for our needs. How is it not a mobile option?! We need the functionality to sync a group calendar to our phones and manipulate it like any other calendar. Is this going to happen soon?
all i want is to install windows 10 or 8.1
Absurd this isn't available! Literally holding up my unit from moving to teams completely.
Unbelievable that this is not available. We told users not to use a Google group calendar, expecting this function to work in Outlook. Now our users can't see the group calendar on their phones.
"IN THE PLANS".
Two years of waiting it coud not be so hard.

It is an important feature for our customers.
We provide O365 with Teams, Planner etc. to our Costumers - as an end to end solution - and mobility is an very important feature - we use teams client and outlook (both mobile and desktop) as HUB for our solutions.
There is Groups calender in mobile App necessary.
Is there "a light at the end of the tunnel" .. and is .. Outlook - with group function on the next roadmap for outlook Mobile (IOS and Android)

Is there an idea of when Outlook group calendar will be available to IOS?
Here we are at the end of July 2019 and this desperately required feature in the iOS and Android apps is STILL absent.
Two years ago we were told that this was coming in the near future but still nothing.
Dear developers, please pull your finger out and get this sorted.
Flipping heck Microsoft - whats the point of group calendars if you can't access the calendar on the move! Basics.
Has the "add group calendar" function on the Outlook app been fixed??? I find it ridiculous that this is even an issue.
