Hello there! Just wondering if anyone else has run into calendar sync issues when managing one or more calendars? I use Outlook on Mac and I'm an EA for 5 executives, managing calendars for all. I have come across several instances where Outlook will populate a meeting in the wrong time slot. For example, a meeting is scheduled for 1 pm but shows on the calendar for the executive at 2 pm in my view only. It is correct on the exec's calendar. This happens way too frequently and causes many conflicted and missed meetings because the window looks open to me but it is, in fact, scheduled. If I look at the same calendar in Office 365, the appointment shows correctly. Using Office 365 is not efficient for me as it does not have the same functionality as the desktop app. Does anyone have this issue?
