.ics extension support
Still we can't open a calendar invite!
Should be able to open and add an ics file in the outlook app if downloaded from the web (IE: Signing up for webinars).
Please implement the ability to sync a calendar ics to the outlook iOS app
With Samsung I can add ics to outlook but cannot do it on my Iphone. During this CoViD19 pandamic there is lots of zoom meetings. This function will be useful.
Our app sends .ICS attachment and the customers are using Outlook app on iOS(iPad) but the email does not show .ics attachment.
When viewed the same email in Outlook on Safari browser, the attachment can be seen.
Why would the attachment not display on outlook app but gets displayed in Outlook on Safari? When will the support for .ics file in outlook app be provided?
Our company has several hundred Outlook app users in the field that rely on their Outlook calendar. With the .ics attachment creating the event in the ios calendar instead of an Outlook option seems ridiculous in this age of tech. Users have to go between two calendar apps to manage their work lives! When will this option be available?
Our scheduling app sends .ics attachments to emails however our customers using the Outlook app on iPhone are unable to receive them. Please add support
I have installed the Outlook-App on my iPhone. So far all works fine with one exception. If I get a email with an .ics file attached and I open this .ics file the respective calendar entry is not made in the outlook app calendar. The entry is done in the iPhone calendar instead. I would like to have the .ics info I’m my outlook app calendar
Poor support from microsoft...
ridiculous! We need .ics support.
I have just enrolled to your own Microsoft training and received calendar invite in .ics format. Now, I cannot add it with Outlook for iOS to my corporate calendar. Poor!
Need it on android also
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.
