How to force sync SP Online with Outlook calendar

Copper Contributor

Hey All,

I have connected my SharePoint (Online) Calendar to My Outlook (2016). 
2019-08-12 09_54_20-Event Calendar - Calendar.png

I want to auto/force sync the calendars SP <-SYNC-> Outlook. So the items/events will pop up in the calendar automatically with no human interventions.

Is that possible? 

Looking for any solution, also writing scripts, or scheduling a windows task, or whatever...

Sync it every x minutes/hours or even 1/2/3/... times a day. As long as it is automatically done.

By the way, when I am clicking update folder in Outlook or refreshing the page in SP, the calendars get synced without any issue.

Technically you could do this by using SPO APIs to synchronize the information bidirectionally to Outlook an also the extensibility options you have in Outlook but If I were you, I would think in more detail if this need is so necessary to invest the time required to program all the stuff and specifically the Outlook part
