Sync Exchange Caledar with SharePoint Online Calendar
Any organization using exchange/outlook for years would need a way to move to SharePoint Online with calendar sync.
When any organization has organization level calendars such as Project Calendar, Corporate Meetings calendar, Conference booking etc., there can be many such events that are shared across the teams. Any organization will not be willing to recreate the entire calendar in SharePoint online. It becomes extremely important as there can be dependency with many other applications, data etc., sitting on SharePoint online. As of now there is no third party solution that can do this! I am wondering Microsoft is not pushing for such a important feature.

This is absolutely essential for our team. We should not have to replicate work in SharePoint and in Outlook.

I cannot understand why this hasn't been done. At least with office365, users expect to have only one calendar, shown in all services. The way it is now is totally useless, an no one want to have maintain more than one calendar.
Hopefully they will pick this one up. When you work with Outlook calendars, you don't want to migratie all your appointments to SharePoint. We just want to integrate it. And not by using an overlay view. :(

Out of votes, but definitely agree.
This can also be applied to other features in SharePoint 2013 e.g tasks, contacts etc.
I am in favour of this idea!! I tried to connect a SharePoint online calendar to an existing calendar created from exchange online in outlook and was told it is a feature that is not available. This feature would make lives easier for users and the support team.
