One of my users' would like to share her calendar with an email group (the group was created by IT, not by the user - not that I think that makes a difference)

 

As a test - I tried to add an email group to an existing "shared mailbox" and didn't see that option available. I also tried setting up an Office 365 group and trying to add an email group (basically a distribution list) to it and also didn't see the option.

 

Just wondering if the only way to share the calendar is either via "security groups" or simply adding each user individually.

 

Thanks.

As with any other permission-related configuration, you need a group that is a security principal. "Simple" DGs or O365 Groups are not, so use mail-enabled security group.
