Open/View Shared Calendars
Version 16.32 (19110600), cannot open shared calendars, for individuals or resources (e.g. conference rooms). Views are confirmed to be visible via O365-OWA.
Latest Beta Channel update, version 16.44 (20111807) and newer, now has support for Shared Calendars. For those on Beta Channel, please update and view/open Shared Calendars. Please report any issues via Help > Contact Support. Thanks!
L'interface Nouvel Outlook est bien plus agréable et intuitive mais inutilisable si toutes les fonctionnalités d'Outlook ne sont pas présentes - comme l'affichage des calendriers partagés. À corriger en URGENCE donc !
The New Outlook interface is much nicer and more intuitive, but unusable if all Outlook features are not present - such as viewing shared calendars. To be corrected in EMERGENCY therefore!

It's hard to understand why something would be pushed out as "New" if it's not ready. Love the mail but can't use the calendar (shared calendars) so what's the point? It really doesn't make sense and quite frustrating.
New Outlook looks great. But the biggest feature that it's missing is the "Open Shared Calendar" option. I live and by checking availability of my coworkers; this makes that impossible, and it makes scheduling harder as well.
currently on the latest beta version 16.46 (21011100) and cannot access shared calendars.
I appreciate the other features of new Outlook, especially the My Day view, but not having access to shared calendars makes it too cumbersome to use the new version consistently.
I'm on version 16.44 and cannot access shared calendars. I have to toggle to Old Outlook to use this feature.
So far 'New Outlook' has a new look, but you guys are absolutely messing up the features in the New Outlook. What's the point of having something look good if it doesn't work? This is basic.

I'm on 16.46 on two Macs. One shows shared calendars, the other doesn't. Any ideas for kicking it into life?
It is INSANE that this incredibly basic function has not been added to Mac. It is ridiculously inconvenient to keep toggling between the new and old Outlook versions, and in no way should that be the solution for Mac users. This bug alone will drive all of us using Apple to other email providers, or prevent us from using the New Outlook!

You need to get this fixed. In 16.44 I can see my delegate calendars and I can add and remove. Once I click on New Outlook, that feature goes away and I loose half of the calendars that I could see. I like haveing my OOSX calendar in the New Outlook, and that is the only reason I switched. I will move back to Apple software until you can get this fixed.
Please add this feature -- it is the reason my team of 10 cannot update to the new Outlook. It is useless without this addition.
The feature was added to the beta version at some point and was removed again on later versions. The current beta16.45 (20121703) is not supporting this feature.

Dear Outlook Team,
We need "Open/View Shared Calendar" functionality on Outlook for Mac!! This was a feature that I used a lot on the older version of Outlook for Mac. In the meantime, I will have to go back to the old version until the feature gets added into the new Outlook.
I liked the view of the new outlook but I can't understand why you would remove such a central feature. I literally use it all throughout my day to check when I can get a hold of the people I work with and gauge how busy they are and whether they have time for whatever I need them for. Please put it in there and please don't force us to use the new version until this is fixed. It would cripple my work extensively
Why on earth would you create an "update" that took away an essential function? How is this useful? Please bring this back ASAP.

I'm on version 16.44 (20121301) on Stable release channel and there is still no support for this feature, contrary to the above.
Contrary to what is stated by the admin, it is not possible to open shared calendars from the new Outlook for Mac (version 16.44). This new version is useless without the option to use shared calendars..
Joy Weinbaum commented
Until this is added back, I'll be switching back to the old version
Am I missing a way to view other calendars from your organization by picking from the address book? This is a key feature that many use every day.

Today I just updated to the Beta Version 16.45 (20121303) but in News Outlook I can't see shared folders neither our shared company address book. When switching back to old Outlook for Mac all Shared Folders are back in place. Sad that the Shared Folders still aren't working in the new interface.
Im on Beta 16.45 (20121303), but I can not see the shared calendar by going to view/open Shared Calendars. I actually could for a couple weeks, but after an update, it went away.
Being able to open Shared Mailboxes is vital for me. Until this feature works this new version is useless. Please sort it.
