Yes, you can do this, see below.

If you want to be able to view a Confluence calendar in Outlook, you can do so by adding a special URL created in Confluence. To do this:

  1. Open the Confluence page with the calendar.
  2. Select the down arrow next to the calendar's name.
  3. Select Subscribe to open the Subscribe to Calendar window.
  4. Copy the URL.
  5. In Outlook, select Tools/Account Settings. This opens the Account Settings window.
  6. Select the Internet Calendars tab.
  7. Click New to open the New Internet Calendar Subscriptions window.
  8. Paste the URL into the empty field.
  9. Click Add to close the window. You should now see the URL listed in the lower pane.
  10. Click Close. You should now be able to see you Confluence calendar alongside your normal Outlook Calendar.

Hello, thanks very much for the quick response. But i think thats not exactly want i want. In the End of these i will have 2 calenders in Outlook. So an collegue whos only watching my personla outlook calender may dont see the meetings created by confluence, or he has to check 2 calenders... i will try this in the next days...

Martin, you're welcome.

When I try this I can see both calendars next to each other. I do this by opening my calendar and then clicking on the Confluence one that is listed under Other Calendars (which is on the left side of Outlook).

Cheers.

Hi Martin,

As far as I know, if you subscribe team calendar from Outlook, you should be able to see confluence events in outlook interface. Have you tried this?

This is the documentation. I'm not sure if you have seen it.

Hi, 

I am able to subscribe and able to see confluence calendar in my outlook, the issue is with remainders where i did set up 10 minutes reminder in confluence but when i see in confluence it shows 'Remainder' as None. Can you let me know what would be the issue. Technically i should receive an remainder from confluence and from outlook too.Kindly see attached for the same.
