.ics extension support
Still we can't open a calendar invite!

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?
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!
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.
Need to add an .ics calendar from iOS app.

In Outlook app on iPhone, I can't see an attached ICS file that I can see in Outlook browser, Outlook on desktop, and Gmail in an email received.
This is extremely disappointing. Please add this feature right away.

Lack of support to see ics files when attached to emails is causing problems with employees attending conference calls. Some large meetings are only sent with call-in details in the ics file attachment. If you expect to open the email when using just your mobile - you can't get the call-in details and can't attend the conference call/webex or webcast. Please at least allow people to see ics files and also possibly save them to calendar.

This should be a business requirement..
This is really important feature for business clients. I have had to move to iOS mail app as this feature is missing. Please do not be slow in adding productivity features like this.
This is key to people using this for Business. Please resolve..

This is possible on desktop Outlook, why not on mobile?
Really disappointed with lack of what would appear to be a very basic email function.

Please implement on Android
