Why Publish an Outlook Calendar to the Internet?
Before asking how to publish an Outlook calendar to the internet, we should know why one would want to. Many civic, sports, and community groups need a way to keep their members informed of events. Groups can invite their members to meetings to accomplish that task, but that requires keeping track of every email address needed for invites.
Pull, Not Push
Instead of using a push method – sending invites to members – groups can enable a ‘pull' method. Publish a calendar on the internet and have members subscribe to it. This allows for the refreshing of calendar entries and those changes to be seen by everyone. Check out my blog post and video to see how to subscribe to a published internet calendar.
Publish to Internet is Missing
The method for publishing a calendar to the internet for public use is detailed within the Outlook client itself. To publish an Outlook calendar to the internet, you should be able to simply right-click on the calendar in the listing and select Publish to Internet. However, that option just isn't there. Watch the video below where I show you exactly how to publish an Outlook calendar hosted in Microsoft 365.
