I've discovered a solution for this, although I cannot attest to how secure this solution is. Here is my solution:
To publish an Outlook calendar to a Confluence Team Calendar:
To update the Outlook calendar in Confluence:
Fast way: this way changes your update frequency so that you don't have to publish your calendar every time you make a change. This is so you don't have to publish your calendar again for each change to an event. I tested it and confirmed it worked after clicking Refresh from the drop-down menu on my test Team Calendar.
Slower way: this way uses the update frequency set by your server settings, and sometimes requires you to publish the calendar again as explained above, but without having to subscribe again in Confluence. I tried it and it did not update automatically.
The workaround is to essentially publish the calendar again then refresh the Team Calendar.
Thank you for providing these steps. A few of us tried to make it work, but have not had success.
I get the error "Specified calendar does not seem like iCalendar," even though it's an .ics URL. And my coworker gets "The datetime zone id is not recognised: Central Standard Time" -- I wonder what the solution to this one could be, since I can't imagine he's going to want to change the timezone of his calendar..
I believe the question here is the reverse of the reply. The question is, is it possible to display and outlook (or rather Exchange) calendar within Confluence.
Subscribing to a Confluence Calendar and displaying it in Outlook is easy, but what about the other way around?
Any thoughts on that??
if you haven't already soved this problem, maybe our app Outlook Calendars for Confluence can help you. It's using Exchange or Office 365 to display all your calendars in Confluence. It's fast and secure and you don't need to maintain appoinments twice!
Just a follow-up to the original question.....I had the same requirement to share my outlook calendar to the confluence calendar & when i followed the Instructions in the link above .....I was able to see the calendar from Confluence on my Outlook(with updates) & not Vice-Versa .......Any thoughts ????
One way is to subscribe to the Outlook calendar in Confluence Team Calendars. To do this you must first publish the outlook calendar online through WebDAV to a page on the Confluence server, then subscribe to that .ics-file from Team Calendars. The .ics file is automatically updated to Confluence from Outlook, but Team calendars seems to have problems refreshing automatically.
Some downsides with this option
Setting up Team Calendars subscription to Outlook Calendar
This did not work for me. I can browse to my Confluence test page in Explorer and save files there, but Outlook returns an error when I attempt to publish a calendar to this location.
The upload of "calendar name here" failed. Server returned an error.
I'm using a Windows Outlook client for Office 365 ProPlust (Version 1708).
So basically, there will be no support for this. That's very frustrating and disappointing. What's the point of an Atlassian Team Calendar if you still have to use Outlook calendars or some other client, which obviously has it's own calendar feature and will likely offer a broader range of sub-features? So what exactly is Atlassian offering besides a bloggin platform and document repository? In my company, my department uses the wiki the most and for all that we do with it, I'm finding open source solutions that seem to offer better products. I may not make the IT decisions but I'm definitely going to offer my opinion.
I found this thread whilst looking for a different answer, but in case it helps you folks, Atlassian recently shipped Team Calendars 6.0 which adds support for 2-way syncing via CalDAV
I was able to do it by following steps below:
1. Login to Office 365 from browser.
2. Go to Outlook
3. Click Setting (Top Right Hand Side)
4. Click All Outlook Settings at the bottom
5. Go to Calendar tab -> Shared calendars
6. Select Calendar
7. Select Can view titles and locations
8. It will generate HTML link.
9. Copy that link
10. Now go to Wiki page where you want to import.
11. Edit Page and add Custom Content macro.
12. Set Width 100%
12. Paste above HTML link in URL field
13. Click Save
