Cannot access public folder and subscribe to Calendar in new version of Outlook for Mac

Copper Contributor

Mac OS 10.15.6


I updated to the latest version of Outlook for Mac. Our organization uses multiple public calendars, and after troubleshooting for a good hour - it looks like Exchange accounts cannot access public folders with the new version of Outlook. We'd like to continue using these calendars and have the rest of our organization update their programs, but this is an integral part of how we operate. 


Is anyone else experiencing this issue?


Thank you,

Yes, I am experiencing the same symptom in our dept.  I'm told that this feature has been deprecated in the new outlook.  I have found that you can turn off new outlook using the slider switch in the upper right corner of the email and calendar windows.  When you do this, outlook restarts in with new outlook turned off, and shared calendars are visible.

@Chris_2019 I have the same issue. For now I'm going to switch back to the old version of Outlook
