I can't seem to access other calenders from my Office365 organisation on my Windows Phone 8. I was previously able to do this with Google Apps.

I've searched the web and on here, but can't find any how to do it - The MS sales page indicates it's possible. http://office.microsoft.com/en-gb/business/office-365-business-email-and-shared-calendar-services-FX102996755.aspx.

I may be missing something incredibly obvious, but I can't see it at the moment!

  • Is the account added as an Exchange account? – Rowland Shaw May 9 '13 at 15:41
  • Yes, it shows as an 'Outlook' icon. Syncs my own calendar, tasks, email and contacts perfectly. Server is outlook.office365.com if that makes any difference. – Mark May 9 '13 at 17:35
  • @Mark how is it going for you? – Mikael Dúi Bolinder Jun 17 '14 at 11:30
  • @MikaelDúiBolinder I gave up on it! I don't think it can be done using the standard apps. Hopefully they'll upgrade them in the future. – Mark Jun 17 '14 at 21:09
  • @Mark Are you able to see the calendar using the desktop version of Outlook? Are you sure that it is an Exchange calendar and not a SharePoint one? – Mikael Dúi Bolinder Jun 17 '14 at 21:25

We have a shared mailbox in addition to my own mailbox in office365. I added the shared mailbox as a second email+account exchange account to my phone. In the account settings I selected to sync the calendar and in the calendar app settings selected to display that calendar. Hope this helps

  • Thanks @Robin, unfortunately that would mean users sharing passwords with each other, so it's not a viable workaround for us. – Mark Oct 20 '14 at 6:49
  • I found this post which suggests it still cannot be done however someone has created a paid for app as one solution – Robin Oct 22 '14 at 14:17
