How to subscribe to Outlook calendar from Confluence Team Calendar?

The question is whether it is possible to subscirbe to an Outlook calendar from Confluence Team Calendar. If it is not possible, is it in the roadmap?

Farzad,

When creating a new Team Calendar it is possible to both subscribe to a calendar from a URL or import an ics export of another calendar. Both of these operations would take external data and populate it into team calendars.

If you are after the converse operation, exporting Team Calendar Data into Outlook, we have the document below.

Hi Daniel,

I guess this is more of an Outlook question, but basically I cannot find the subscription URL in Outlook for the calendar that I want to subscribe to. I was wondering if you guys already have the step-by-step document that can get me there.

Hi Daniel,

Do you support import of the calendar into outlook in Mac os ?

@Farzad - It is still unclear to me the operation you want to perform. Do you want to subscribe to a Team Calendar from Confluence? Or do you want to Push an Outlook calendar to Team Calendars?

@Dipti - We have the folllowing feature request that has been resolved as "won't fix". It appears as if Outlook for Mac simply does not support this feature.

@Daniel: I want to push an outlook calendar to team calendar.

@Farzad - You will have to perform an ics export of your Outlook calendar and then import that ics into team Calendars.

Here is an external document on how to create that ics export in Outlook.

When you create a new Calendar from within Team Calendars there is an option to perform an import from an ics export. Simply browse to your ics file and peform the import.

I think still we are not on the same page. What I mean by subcsribing to a outlook calendar from team calendar is that I want to be able to see all my outlook calendar events from team calendar on an ongoing bases.

So for instance imagine right now I have the following calendars in my team calendar:

1. Project Alpha [jira calendar]

2. Awesome holidays [events calendar]

Now I want to subcscribe to my outlook calendar, so I want to have:

1. Project Alpha [jira calendar]

2. Awesome holidays [event calendar]

3. My Outlook Calendar [subcsicbed calendar]
Please note that I do NOT want to import calendar. I want to subcscibe to outlook calendar in order to make sure when an event gets updated in my outlook calendar, I would see the update in my team calendar.

Hi Daniel,

We initially really liked your TCP but request for basic features and with your answer's as 'NO' for most of them , is actually preventing us from purchasing this plugin.

@Dipti - We completely understand that the inability to subscribe to a calendar in Outlook for mac may be a limiting factor for your business needs. Unfortunately this functionality simply does not exist in the Mac Outlook Client.

What are your other concernes that are preventing you from adopting Team Calendars?

Daniel,

Even if we already have a leave software in place , still we wanted the TCP and integrate both the leave tools . But absence of any sort of exposed API is acting as a bigger hindrance.
