Viewing shared calendar
It is very helpful to be able to see my own calendar more prominently than those that have shared theirs with me; right now they are all faded.
It would be great if the newly shared calendar can be automatically added to the left pane in my calendar without clicking “Accept” in the sharing invitation message.

Outlook 2016 (Desktop version) , Outlook for iOS/Android and Outlook on the web has different set of shared calendar.
For example, calendars imported as a group in Outlook 2016 is not displayed in list of shared calendars in Outlook on the web.
Also, no shared calendars are displayed in Outlook for iOS/Android by default.
I would like list of shared calendar to be in the same appearance in all Outlook products.
It would be great if we could restrict general users from changing sharing setting of their calendar.
We do not want them to change access permissions on their own.
The old outlook is much better!! Shared calendars do not function as I have to deactivate my shared calendar and reactivate it every time I want to see updates to a shared calendar. This destroyed my day yesterday when I found out after lunch that I had 4 bids due!!
Back to the old way
Viewing shared calendars from others in my organization seems much harder. In previous calendar, I could type the person's name in the Search box, and an Open Calendar option would appear. This avoided ever having to "Add Calendars" ahead of time, then finding/checking them in the (unalphabetized) list.
In the new calendar, Searching by name doesn't give this option, so have to Add the person's shared calendar first, which takes 8 clicks by my count. We have a big organization with lots of turnover so doing this all the time is pretty painful.
The add calendar ribbon is missing, or isn't in an obvious place
need to have access to other people's calendars however with this new outlook it looks impossible.

Able to again view a shared calendar I created on Outlook from my Android Calendar Function. I can view created on personal calendar events but not created on shared calendar events
It is difficult to view items are on two for different calendars; the colors are too similar and are grouped together
in the new outlook, i do not see the appointments from a collegue.
old version -> no problem
New Outlook Calendar view is not alllowing to see Shared Calendars. Switching back to Old Outlook works fine. Definitely a problem with new which prevents us from rolling it out to users..
Unable to share calendar
