Office 365 family - cannot edit shared calendar event on Android phone

Copper Contributor

Hi guys, 
For few years I am experiencing this weird behavior on android phone of my wife in regards of use of our family calendar Will try to describe how it is set and what is happening:

  • We both have Office 365 family accounts (under one family)
  • I have created new calendar under my account and shared to my wife account with edit permissions. 
  • If she use OWA she can work on events in our shared calendar without issues. 
  • If she try to edit event on Samsung mobile phone - in Samsung calendar app - she does not have edit option. She have delete option though.
  • Tried in google calendar app and same - no edit option.
  • If she create new event and save it - she has option to edit for approximately one minute. Than this option disappear. 
  • We have already changed phone at least twice and it is always the same. 

So I have been looking around internet for similar issue reported, but did not find exactly this behavior ... 


Any thoughts are welcomed ...

Try this:

 

1. Download the Outlook app (from Playstore) and install. Use your M365 account to set it up
2. Open the app and go to tab "calendar", at the bottom of the screen
3. Then click the icon in the top left corner
4. Then click settings (wheel) in the bottom leftcorner
5. Click on your M365 account
6. Now, on that page there is an option called: "Synchronise calendars".
7. Activate this option
