Hello all, I was hoping for some advice regarding a calendar issue within my org. 

 

Due to compliance reasons within our industry, our email server is hosted and managed by an outside company. Within our company we have our own office 365 accounts and use Teams to communicate. However, we are running into issue with scheduling as our exchange outlook calendars are separate from our 365 Teams calendars. 

 

Is there anyway to sync these two?

Hi @Clint_Nylander

See here

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/MicrosoftTeams/exchange-teams-interact

Teams calendars do sync with on premise exchange as outlined in the article. As far as I know, the issue is going to be if you are using Multitenanted hosted exchange. If you have dedicated hosting with your own AD, own exchange then this could very well be a possibility as you would be able to put the hosted solution and 365 into a hybrid configuration

However, if it is multi-tenanted that's not a supported scenario because multi tenant doesn't support Exchange Hybrid which is needed to work with Teams Calendars.

I would check with your hosting provider who should be able to give you a confirm

Hope that answers your question

Best, Chris
