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 have done my decision. Don‘t use this app any more. And our company (enterprise company) plans to follow my recommendation to cancel this user unfriendly development.
Seriously MicroSoft - it's called Outlook for Mac - Outlook that works on a Mac - perhaps it is implied that Mac users will have IMAP accounts, so maybe the Minimum Viable Product to be built with make those accounts talk to Outlook - MVP! We now have to vote for the least we expect.
Yeah Jeff Tillery...it’s read only, same with Google Calendar. MS is one step further integrating Google with Outlook but it’s still not quite there... I hope they don’t end up having the same “kinda compatible” approach with iCloud...although any progress at all would be nice I guess:/
Current sitch with Google/Mac Outlook...
-syncs between Google Cal-Outlook-Mac-IOS, but does not instantly update on IOS (takes a few to several minutes)
-cannot copy/paste in either direction between Outlook and Google (without a G Suite account [& Windows?])
-can cut/paste (move) from Google Cal to Outlook, but not from Outlook to Google
...so the only way to get all your calendar events into gCal is to; export the OLM file, convert it to PST or ICS, then import to gCal (I think?)
-you will no longer have categories or generic colors (neither sync between Outlook-Google)
-can view on Outlook 365 Web but not edit (one-way read-only)
-quick back-to-back changes in Outlook are not handled well...often rejected and require a 2nd attempt
-having gCal in Outlook also adds another mail folder, meaning two duplicate (but not identical) gmail folders if you’re already using gmail in Outlook
...might be worth syncing from Google to iCloud (Google to sync with Outlook on Mac, Google to sync with IOS via iCloud) in order to speed up the IOS sync, but two layers of syncing is asking for trouble
please add this functionality, huge miss by MS - eliminates my use of Outlook - which would be a huge advancement over the Mac Mail/Calendar/Contacts apps
Thanks Admin, but the suggested alternative only works as a one-way read-only sync...changes made in Outlook won't be applied to the iCloud calendar.

Not really cool to recommend people create a public subscription link to their calendar just to workaround not having CalDav support - plus, isn't this a read only link to the calendar?
Please make a simple way to have outlook access and view my iCloud calendars. I WANT to use Outlook more, i WANT to be on the 365 ecosystem but this just hinders it :(
Ensure that all calendars (iCal and Outlook can be synced on my Mac.

Hey, Outlook team, are you actually doing anything? Of the top 20 items on this site, 75% are 'Under Review' and have been for some time. 15% have no comment. We've had the pleasure of looking forward to the other planned 5% since Q12016! The only item there seems to have been any progress was integration with OneNote. Surprise! You really want to improve macOS Outlook, just continue to barely support it and integrate it with other Office products!

As I figured out there's a serious bug synching calendar entries in Outlook:MacOSX <-> Office 365 <-> Outlook:iOS.
I documented (screenshots) and reported this serious bug to the support team using the help/support functionality in Outlook. But - up to now - no solution provided.
link iCal with Calendar - what an omission!

Kirk Koenigsbauer, Corporate Vice President for Microsoft 365, wrote on July 22, 2015:
"... We’ve also heard the requests for Gmail and iCloud calendar and contacts sync. We’ll be adding these and other feature requests through monthly updates. ..."
(Point 8 of "Your top 10 questions about Office 2016 for Mac answered")
Nothing happened over 3 (!) years.
Is there anybody taking care of either user requests or Vice President directions?

Thanks but the problem with this is that at my office, other people have access to my outlook calendar. If I sync my iCloud (personal) calendar items to O365, then a lot of people at work will be able to see all my personal items, which I don't want to happen. When I'm using Outlook 365 at work (a windows machine) I can use iTunes/iCloud sync to add things to outlook but when I use my personal machine (Mac) none of my iCloud calendar items can sync. It really annoying (and seems somewhat crazy) that I can get my iCloud calendar items on Outlook for Windows but NOT for Outlook for Mac.
ical integration. consolidate all calendars in one place
quand pourrat'on synchroniser Outlook mac et contact iOS ou gmail
Michael Schlosser commented
Your alternative is no alternative, because it does not work. Sometimes only synced in one direction. Birthdays always one day wrong. Some events do not sync at all.
It would be nice if iCal integrated into Outlook
