Outlook for Windows: Shared calendar improvements
Microsoft have updated the Office 365 roadmap with some upcoming improvements to calendar sharing in Office 365.
Apart from being simpler, these new calendar updates are also great for separate companies who use Office 365 and share resources like meeting rooms.
The current external sharing options are difficult to configure and only update every 3 hours. However these new changes will allow for a simple, instantly syncing calendar sharing experience. Both internally and with external Office 365 & Outlook.com users.
From Microsoft’s notes
Introducing a new service backed model for sharing calendars with other Office 365 subscribers that improves performance and reliability and keeps all calendars in sync.
