How can we improve Microsoft Intune

Sync Outlook for iOS Calendars to iOS native Calendar app

This is now available for Contact sync in the Account settings (Within the Outlook app on iOS device, Settings>Tap the account>Toggle on "Save Contacts"> tap "Save to My iPhone" at prompt "Would you like to save your [#] Outlook contacts to your iPhone?" > Tap "OK" to allow Outlook to sync Contacts to the iOS Contacts app.) It would really help user buy in to Intune if there was a similar option to sync calendars to the native iOS calendar app.

        It is very frustrating to loos appointments due to the fact that we now need to consult 2 calenders to be sure not to doublebook. it is a very strange way of handling a large system as this

        As we move to outlook and with limited apps supporting InTuneMAM story this is impacting user experience.

        Give on one hand take away in the other, please fix

        Vote for it, too. Is microsoft looking for a solution on above mentioned issue as we cant effort to have multiple apps for calendar.

      • RSH commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        MS please fix this. Separate calendars are really annyoing and the integrated Outlook one just doesn't do it. Any news on a sync function?

        Just migrating to Outlook for iOS app and our staff are going mad over the lack of calendar sync options. This needs to be fixed.

      • Edward Dear commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        +1 for this. This is the main complaint our users have when using the Outlook for iOS app.

        It's been a year... No action on this from Microsoft yet? I would've thought this issue effects organizations that it they had to fix it by now.

        For those who commented that this can be done w/ native mail apps - many shops will not allow native mail w/ ActiveSync due to security concerns and DLP of content in email. The suggestion is very specific to allow Outlook calendar to sync into iOS native calendar similar to how contact sync is already supported.

        Hi,

        Either add iPhones mail app as manger app. So that we can use default mail app along with iPhone calendar can be used as secured app. Otherwise introduce a feature to sync outlook for iOS to sync with default calendar.

        Microsoft introduces and compels it’s own application without giving very basic features.

        This is a basic feature, to see all meetings in one place. already had some double booking due to it.

        Can't do that after intune deployed. If good of have options for that to just enable show in native calendar

      • Some Dude commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        You can. I use the Outlook client for Office365 and set it up as you normally would on your device. For calendar sync on the native calendar app, just add your same O365 account in the Account section as if you were going to use it to sync mail. However, when you get to the page with the sliders on it, turn everything off EXCEPT the calendar. Now you have all your calendar events in the native calendar app. It's a work around, but works like a champ.

        Could not agree more. The calendar issue is one of the most frustrating things with intune.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Add another vote to this. We have a client we deployed In Tune for and now have to redeploy a different product due to the inability to synchronize the calendar.
