How to enable sync between iCalendars and O365 Public Folder calendars. 

This article will highlight how to sync iCalendars with O365 Public Folder Calendars. iCal or an iCalendar is an online file format used for storing calendar information. 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. (See figure below.) Check out this article to learn how to use CiraHub’s Calendar Sync options.

9. Next, click on the Public Folder 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.

Allowing Spokes to Sync With the Hub

10. On the CiraHub Dashboard, click Sync Now to sync between the attached Spokes and the Hub you have created. You can also edit synchronization for each of your spokes using the options at the bottom of the page.
