Where can the sync interval between a Team Calendar and Outlook be found?

I'm configuring Team Calendars and sharing the calendars with outlook (one-way/from-internet option), however the calendars do not appear to be syncing very often. I've checked the calendar settings and see no refresh interval, and checked the ICS file which is created, and don't see a published-ttl or anything obvious which seems to indicate when Outlook should sync. Is there anywhere I'm missing where this can be updated, either via the UI or via a configuration file?

Thanks!

This sounds like a question for Outlook. What should be happening here is that you're giving Outlook a URL of the calendar file and then Outlook decides when it refreshes from that URL. (I know in Mac Calendar, for example, you choose an "Auto-refresh" interval when you subscribe to the calendar.)

@Christian Elliott you appear to be right: Microsoft products (outlook, exchange online, office 365) expect a X-PUBLISHED-TTL command or line and that is not existing in any ICS file I downloaded from Team Calendars product. 

I found the appropriate "New Feature Request" here, it looks like they are trying to tackle this issue head-on. https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/TEAMCAL-1198

There are several work-arounds listed on that page that might be helpful: I am going to try that last one in the comments myself once I investigate what I am trying to accomplish specifically.
