Can the Confluence Team Calendar be Connected to an Outlook Calendar?

If yes, would updates made in Outlook automatically sync to the Confluence Team Calendar?

 

If it can be done, how? I've searched all through the Confluence documentation and can embed a Team Calendar in Outlook (non-editable), but not the other way around.

 

Thanks!

There is no bi-direction sync available. You can sync Team Calendars one way only.

For instance in your use-case:

Please note, ANY Cloud-based calendar should be able to offer a subscription URL. I can't really provide a guide on each and every piece of software you use and neither can Atlassian I would say.

Thanks for the confirmation, really appreciate it.

There is an enhancement request to get CalDAV into Team Calendars. Will it ever happen ... who knows? But give it a vote and hopefully they will add it in. https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/TEAMCAL-113

Thanks Davin, I voted and also completed the survey.

Has anybody experience with the integration in Outlook 2016 so far?

I'm facing the issue when integrating confluence team calendars with outllook. When testing the connection in outlook (CalDav plugin), stuck with an error. CalDav Error.PNG

I am facing something link this, too.

Outlook 2010

I solved my problem: My Outlook profile seemed to have a problem. After I created a new one, the problem was solved.

Hi @Paula Dasch,

 

How you did this?

Could you please provide me steps to achieve this?

 

Thanks,

Hi there,

Since is pretty complicated to sync the Team Calendars to Outlook, it's a good option to use Microsoft Exchange or Office 365 to display your calendars in the first place.

Our app Outlook Calendars for Confluence does exactly that. It provides you real-time data, so no sync is needed anymore.

The answer to this now in 2018 is yes you can. Team Calendars now supports CalDAV.

I vote for it, but: see errors from Aarya and me, above. Do you have an idea for it?

Hi @Davin Studer,

 

As Team Calendars now supports CalDAV, then how to connect to PR calendar on sharepont?

DO you have any idea about this?

You need to install a (free) third-party plug-in to get it to work. The plugin requires that the user's authenticate via entering a username/password into the "plugin profile". 

In an environment where passwords rotate monthly - this is a nightmare. Asking users to edit calendar profiles every time they change their network password is silly. 

Team Calendars cloud version supports CalDAV?

now cloud version number is 5.3.15

Why is the cloud version still using the old version?
