    Hi all. Before I approach Outlook support, I wanted to check if anyone here has encountered the same problem and has a fix.

    My wife and I have been using a shared “Family” calendar for years. Following the recent migration (I think) of Outlook dot com we have encountered a problem. She cannot add/delete/edit any items in the Shared calendar from her Outlook desktop app – I’ve checked but she only has read-only access to this calendar. However, she has full access (i.e. same as me) from the Win 10 Calendar app, the Calendar app from her Windows phone and also from the web via Outlook dot com. All very strange, but it seems as if the Outlook desktop app isn’t picking up the correct access rights for our shared calendar. I’ve tried removing and adding her account on the Outlook desktop app, but no joy.

    Note: I don’t want to mess around with access rights on the calendar as clearly she can add/delete/edit the calendar via other apps & the web.

    Anyone else have this problem or have any ideas.

    Yes we have exactly the same problem you describe. What I figured out was that if the other users of the shared calendar set up their accounts in the Outlook Desktop App as an Exchange Active Sync instead of using the default auto account setup then they can edit, delete and add events in the shared calendars.
    I am not sure this is ideal though as my wife reports odd behaviour with the read/unread status of her emails not synchronizing across devices.
    It is a complete pain and it used to work so well prior to the accounts upgrade!
