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:
want to be able to synch my ios calendar with outlook on my mac
Please add an iCloud calendar to Outlook for Mac.
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
It would be great Outlook could be synced with Apple's calendar...too many of us use Mac at home and PC at work or vice versa and the complications of getting things right are immeasurable.
I am currently using only Apple mail instead of Outlook only for the reason that all my contacts are in iCal. I have always used and liked Outlook better but the lack of this feature is preventing me from using it.
Add export option for iCal to Outlook for Mac 2016.
le fait qu'il n'y ait pas de concordance possible entre le calendrier apple et le calendrier outlook n'a pour effet que de contraindre les utilisateurs à un choix entre l'ensemble apple et l'ensemble outlook.
quand vous aurez réglé se problème je pourrai passer de apple à OUTLOOK
Il est évident que les palliatifs proposés n'apporte pas une sécurité et une efficacité normales
donc à rejeter par principe
As Christina and Giovanni mentioned, it is a bad joke that Microsoft is not solving this problem.
I am forcing my customers and my company, a global IT Service provider, to search for alternatives to Outlook.
The missing sync is not contemporary for business industry standards anymore.

I am a MS Office user since the early nineties and Office for Mac since 2006. It is unbelievable that more than 7.000 votes are not enough to solve this issue. Really, unbelievable.

I do not want an alternative, I want THIS solution. It is so simple to implement, I can not believe MS is just not listening to its users.
Complete disappointment on Microsoft.

I tried following the procedure in the the above link and it does not work. It does import the calendar but does not sync with any further additions. It also will not allow any additions to the calendar as all entries go to an outlook calendar and not the imported iCal.
Der Umweg von iCloud über outlook.live.com (O365) zu Outlook für Mac 2016 funktioniert nicht!
As I'm informed, ...
... google uses Card-/CalDAV standard (perhaps their special version)
and Apple uses Card-/CalDAV standard ...
Therefore I assume that there're political not technical reasons.
Personally I don't expect MS providing a solution (moving to standards).
