I have just installed a trial version of Team Calendars in our Confluence instance.
The main use case is to get an overview of team vacations and other activities in one place. For that, I need to include the events in the MS Exchange calendars of my team members.
I cannot find any description of how to do that in the documentation (https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/TEAMCAL/Team+Calendars+Home). I can find instructions for subscribing to a Google calendar (wrong software) or how to subscribe to Team Calendars from Outlook (wrong way), but obviously that does not help me.
MS Exchange is our main calendar system in the organisation. I was hoping that Team Calendars could help aggregate the information from Exchange into a nice overview.
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
Hello @Mikkel Christensen,
I tried it with Confluence 5.10.6 and Outlook 2010 (connected to company MS Exchange Server, Outlook Web App (OWA))
Hope this helps!
Good evening Patrice,
Thanks for this approach. It's better than no solution at all...
...but it is not sufficient since this solution only works if your outlook is transfering the data. (For us) it would be necessary to have a connection to the MS Exchange Server as conference rooms and other resources do not "own" a computer with a running MS Outlook.
Good morning @Philipp Eckelmann,
how did you check that Outlook ist transferring the data? As pointed out in may answer I was directed from my Outlook client to our company's MS Exchange Server to adjust the settings. There I copied the ICS URL. So as far as I am aware of the data come from our Exchange server.
Can you confirm this?
