.ics extension support
Still we can't open a calendar invite!
And to add to @jpacheco comment below. Many companies use intune to Block downloads to local storage on the phone. So then they would still be impossible to import to OUtlook.
Can't believe this is not supported and not impressed having no one from Microsoft giving some feedback since 2015. Not professional at all.

Despite being rolled out with Note ID 57014, it cannot be displayed and imported with iOS for outlook.

There should be a way to subscribe to any calendar subscription feed in the .ics (iCalendar) format.

We distribute iPad to flight crews and use Office365 on iPad.
The use of "Active Sync" has been removed for Security reasons, and "Outlook for iOS" has integrated mail and calendar. The flight crew's "Flight Schedule Application" interface is struggling to integrate with outlook due to the ics form.
We would like to be able to view the ics file attached to the email received by "iOS for Outlook" and load it into the calendar.
Please integrate the ability to read, open, assess, and book into an existing calendar from ICS Calendar attachment files.
When receiving an email with an ICS attachment, the attachment icon is shown in the main mail list, but when opening the mail message - no attachments are shown.

Please implement .ics MIME type. I was shocked to hear it wasn’t implement during client testing

This has been "Under Review" for over 4 years. Microsoft, can we get an update on this one?
It would also be nice to push out subscriptions to managed users. For example, we have a SaaS based business app being used where they can subscribe to a Board calendar directly from the app. However, to get it into Outlook they need to add it from the desktop version of Outlook. So, they have to subscribe from the app, send themselves a link, sign into the desktop/pc Outlook version, click on the link to add the calendar. It is very inconvenient. The only other option is to save to the local Apple calendar but who wants to monitor multiple calendars.
How do you have a calendar app that doesn’t allow .ics invites?
I got a problem when using iOS outlook app - When an ics calendar file is enclosed in a mail, it does not appear as the attachment and failed to be recognized. Is there any possibility to make this fiction work? This function is critical for organizing a meeting and managing my daily calendar; so hopefully it could be fixed soon. Thank you in advance.
When shopping online some online retailers would send a .ics calendar file. Would be great to allow us to import that so the event is in the calendar and get an alert.
Also be good if it could be shared to the outlook app via the iOS share feature
same like Jörgen;)
It is 2020 soon, and this basic feature is not supported?
Microsoft Outlook Calendar will be unusable without ICS import. What for Noobs!

When you receive a mail with an ICS attachment, it would be very helpful if you could just add that event to your calendar from within outlook mobile.

Outlook.com itself has the ability to publish ics calendars yet the outlook app can’t view or synchronize them… please add this. Or if not then add the ability to pull in a native iOS calendar subscription so you don’t have to implement it.
In all the other mail apps that I have used I have been able to get an email with a dot ICS file that I could then click on and add something to my calendar on iOS. This app does not allow for that file to be sent through surprisingly. I have already reached out to Tech Support and they have confirm that it’s not supported. Can we get this adjusted?
How is this still not supported, original request goes back to 2015. Just switched to Outlook for ios as our standard and surprised that companies with 100% mobile uses can even use this app. Large enterprises can't control what system clients use to send them calendar invites. What is sad is I may have to move employees back to native ios app. Sad.
Hello. Since the infamous day where Microsoft killed off all its Windows Mobile phones (sigh!) the management of ics files on the mobile app calendar is a real headache. Contrary to the desktop version, there seems to be no way to import from the app these files so as to embed an appointment in the Outlook calendar.
What happens usually is that iPhone or Android native apps generating appointments (e. g meetup just for instance) automatically save the event on the phone standard calendar app, AND in the best case, they allow the download of an .ics file useless (until now) for outlook mobile users.
Please, provide us with a way of dealing with these files because this situation is forcing us to use our iPhone/Android calendar to fetch and paste (manually) the event on the outlook calendar, and I think it might be a matter of time for mobile users to drop the outlook calendar altogether (not to mention features already pointed out in other suggestions such us the week number and others, available on the iPhone cal years ago and that are surprisingly still not available for us)
Thank you for your time!
Need to add an .ics calendar from iOS app.
