Hi, sincere apologies if I break any community rules, I'm a newbie here.
 
I work for a school organization with about 130 employees. We use Office365 for all of our internal communications. Now the issue is that, being teachers, we also rely on a third party tool producing our lesson schedules. This creates a problem when employees want to schedule an assignment with a colleague. Because although it is possible to import the lesson schedule into Outlook via an .ical url, the lesson schedule (obviously) doesn't show up for me when I look into the agenda of a fellow colleague. Therefore I can't really see whether he/she is available or not.
 
So my question is: would it be possible to import the .ical url in such a manner that it would actually merge with my main calendar so that colleagues can not only see my own appointments, but also my lesson schedule?
 
Any help is greatly appreciated!

What third party application are you using for the scheduling?

 

They may have an APP which integrates with Outlook.

We use the third party application called "Zermelo". Its a relatively small Dutch company mainly serving schools.

 

They do have a separate android/ios app, and the aforementioned .ical subscription option, but that's not enough: colleagues can't see the calendars I'm subscribed to.
