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:
Compatibility with most calendar programs, at least multiple Outlook platforms.
Need to be able to link my calendar and contacts to outlook. Otherwise this is a very disappointing program for my iMac and iPhone
this would be very helpful!
Klaus von Grebmer commented
Please come up with that support soon. It seems to be an anachronism that it does not already exist.
Outlook is a must for my organisation and lack of syncing mechanism for iPhone Calendar is poorly decided and get off your high horse that Apple's applications are better than Microsoft applications. Syncing calendar is essential for time-management, customer relations and improve efficiency. Following Nike's slogan... Just Do It.

"... 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. ..."

Nothing happened over more than 3 (!) years.
Is there anybody taking care of either user requests or Vice President directions?
It is 2019. The UK is about to leave the EU. A NASA probe is going to take pictures of the furthest object to orbit the Sun in the Solar System. Cars can drive themselves. Yet Mac Outlook still can't read the ubiquitous calendar format that is CalDAV or properly use iCloud calendars. Nevertheless you are spending your time on putting new icons in. Are you actually for real guys ????? Is there a huge technical reason why Mac Outlook is the only Mac email client on the planet that doesn't sync properly with iCloud email ???? You responded in 2018 9 months ago that this is under review. What's to review ? Just do it. It feels like Mac Outlook is the last vestige of the old Ballmer Microsoft.
Using a public iCloud calendar link is NOT an acceptable workaround. Sorry
Charlie Ellman commented
The screenshot in your alternative shows the subscribed calendar as being read only. That is not the same as having support for iCloud.
You should do this for two reasons:
1) CalDAV is a basic standard. It's ridiculous for an expensive (PAID - not FREE) email client to not support it.
2) It is perfectly reasonable for someone to want to see their personal calendar while at work so that they don't accidentally book meetings or travel when they have other personal events going on. This isn't an edge case.

The way outlook and apple contacts do not sync together is absolutely crazy and short sighted. As a small business owner i look to software to work easily and properly so i can focus on my business. I need a too that works, niot one that cost me extra money in IT support.
Can't get it to work!

Everyone who is voting for this should instead (or also) vote for proper CalDAV support:

I thought no iCal support would be an old thread when i tried to add a calendar to Outlook 2016.
