Hi!

 

We have a generated calendar (ics/ical) file within our company which I would like to share to everyone within the company using Sharepoint/Onedrive. It should not be accessible outside the company.

 

The purpose of the share is for everyone to be able to subscribe to it as an Internet calendar in Outlook.

 

Putting the file on internal servers is not an option since it requires VPN access. That would exclude, or make it non-user friendly for users using Outlook online, Mac Outlook or Outlook mobile apps.

 

Since Sharepoint/OneDrive and Outlook is all in the O365 ecosystem this seems theoretically possible.

I've tried sharing the file using the "People within <org> with the link can access" option. I even put &download=1 in the URL to force the download. Tried it in Outlook online, the calendar is added, but no events are added to / visible in the calendar.

 

Do you have any ideas, or other options, on how to make this possible?
