Sync calendars in Outlook 2016
I manage both work and personal email/calendar (both via Office365/Exchange365) in Outlook. When I accept an appointment on my personal calendar I'd love a "ghost" to appear on my work calendar that blocks out time (and potentially vice-versa) - doesn't have to include details, just show if I am busy/available for when people are requesting time and only have visibility on one of the calendars (this could include me also seeing the ghosts if I'm only looking at one calendar)
Would like this to be available in Outlook 2016 for both Windows and macOS and also via APIs so that 3rd party apps like 9Folders can support this feature
Also, I have two copies of Office Pro 2016 and so please provide me an option to sync calendar of both.

It would be great if all merged calendars' availability was blocked out. My Yahoo calendar appointments should reflect in my Outlook calendar availability. (for scheduling Assistant or others information)
I have two copies of Office Pro 2016 - the emails synchronize on both machines but not the calenders - can this be done?

I believe this should be considered an important feature since most Freelancers would use this - ie. they don't want personal calendar entries showing up in a work calendar but want to block the time.
People who are part of multiple business entities or consultants that work for multiple businesses may have calendars available at each one and hence sync across these would stop conflicting meetings.
In affect, think of it as a way to add Calendar to Teams where you can be on multiple Teams and each Team can see your free/busy info - Only the Team a specific meeting is for can see details. This avoids someone on one Team making a meeting that conflicts with one from another Team.
I would like to make a calendar group in other calendar group (nested calendar group) on Outlook.
i have the same problem
microsoft please find a a way to assist us for the love of god
I need to be able to show availability of a group of people over, say, a working week and have this available on SharePoint so that other staff can book time with them when they are available. Time needs to be booked with anyone in the group or specific individuals, with the group calendar being updated automatically to show changes in availability. The Schedule view would be ideal although Overlay would work but this function doesn't appear to be available at the moment.

It would be very useful to have to do list (task list) also available for Outlook mobile version (Android). Now a days e-mail and calendar have the syncronization available, however it is impossible to reach the task list which is a huge problem when mobile.
sync with ACT. It worked some time ago. Does not work now. ACT has received tech help. It is current and working. Does not sync with Outlook now. I was told to reinstall Outlook. Afraid I might loose my e-mails.
