This article will outline how to sync iCal with O365 User Mailbox Calendars. CiraHub consolidates numerous data sources from multiple platforms ensuring that information remains consistent across devices and software.  

Instructions 

1. Log in to CiraHub. On the Hub & Spoke Setup page, select the Calendars object. Keep in mind that public folders can sync both contacts and calendars (See figure below.) Check out this article to learn how to use CiraHub’s Calendar Sync options.

9. Next, click on the Mailbox Spoke, go to Sync Options and click Allow Hub to create and sync items in this spoke and click SAVE (See figure below.) Note that the iCal spoke is a “Read-Only” spoke that allows for one-way sync from the Hub. This means that CiraHub can read but not write or push any information to it.
