Support for Apple iCloud calendar
Thanks for voting!
One alternative is to subscribe to iCloud calendar with your Exchange/O365 email accounts or any Outlook account, and then sync the same accounts in Outlook for Mac. See details:

I’d also like to add that the workaround noted on this thread simply does not work for me. Have tried multiple times, but adding a public shared calendar link from iCloud into the Outlook web calendar as per the instructions does not sync at all. The calendars appear in the Outlook list but no calendar entries appear.

I need to use Outlook for work. I use my own Mac for work. I therefore use Outlook for Mac. It is beyond ridiculous that a version of Outlook specifically designed for the Mac platform does not support iCloud calendar sync. My work calendar is in Outlook. My personal and family calendars are in iCloud. I’d like to see both in the Outlook for Mac calendar rather than having to switch. This should be as straightforward as it is on iOS.

Please add the option to add ical to outlook calendar with auto synchronize

It already works on iOS so why not just port this to Mac? it's a bummer for sure.

It's rediculous that you offer the "Office Suite" on Mac and don't support integration with half the features - Prejudice or stupidity and lack of foresight?
The previous release of Office was a disgrace, and you follow up with a better GUI but the critical features missing from the implementation.
Heads should roll!!

Support for Google's calendar system was great, now if you can add Apple's calendar system we could just use the Outlook software and see everything in one place! How great would that be? Very great I must say!

it is not possible to transfer calendar and Contacts between Apple iCloud and Onedrive - security reasons and GPDR.
the easy manual way I found is this:
open your Contacts / choose the one and more you wish to transfer, one at a time / open with -choose outlook / outlook pops up and you can save / there you are. but you have to do it one by one. Good practise to clean up your Contacts :-)
Can you make it so Outlook on Mac can follow basic protocols to work with Apple calendar so we can see and edit and synch. What is worse is making it seem like it does work, but then it doesn't (it shows up on the left menu bar but none of the appointments show up) I have spent many hours trying to make my wife see that Im really trying to be a good husband but I cant get the family calendar into my work calendar...save the family!

The "alternative is not an alternative - one way communication (at least one way the works consistently). And you have to share your iCloud calendar as PUBLIC!
Not going to happen. That is simply an insulting response by Microsoft.
This will not happen. In my view. MS denies a solution for (undisclosed) purposes...

I love that this has been "Under Review" since June 09, 2017. While the alternative worked for my needs, sounds like having this officially supported - even with over 15K requests for this feature over multiple posts – is not a priority for the Mac Outlook Team.
Try the alternative, maybe it will work for you.

Can't we all get along? If Gimbel's and Macy's could do it - albeit in a miraculous New York City, and even if Gimbel's has gone the way of the [insert extinct example here] - let's make computer world a harmonious one. Microsoft, shake hands with Apple; Apple, shake hands with Microsoft. There, easy, huh?

How long will this be in review? I would think it should be a given to support Apple Calendar or Apple Contacts in Outlook for macOS.

There should be a way to sync the reminders in the Outlook 2016 for MAC calendar with iPhone
Well, there is nothing left to say. Its very disappointing!

The "alternative" way to subscribe the calendar is not an alternative. On iOS this feature works, so get it done for Mac as well.
This feature is a priority for those users looking to run a Mac with O365 as an alternative to a PC.
I can't get the alternative "subscription" to work for more than one ical. this makes a poor experience across devices
This is a must to have feature! otherwise all the money we paid for the Office for Mac licence is a waste, because we can't use it with our iPhones!
Please execute... A much needed feature.
