Calendar not working in Outlook for iOS

Hey Everyone,

Has anyone figured out how to get the Calendar working in iOS?

The Mail portion works great but Calendar does not show up. I've tried adding but it doesn't seem to want to connect to the fastmail calendar. Here's the screenshot I get.

I've been looking on Apple and Microsoft forums for similar issues, and it seems like it would have to be an Exchange account (and not IMAP) in order for calendars to work in Outlook on iOS? Is that true? Is there a work around?

Thanks!

It’s surely no IMAP. That’s a protocol for mail. It’s either Active Sync (Exchange/Outlook) or CalDAV.

Set up your calendar and contacts

Outlook 2016 does not support external calendar or contact servers. You will need to use a third party plugin.

Outlook 2016 does not run on IOS, it is a different version of Outlook (about which I know nothing). Everything Microsoft does with email, calendars and contacts is called "Outlook" in some way, and it is confusing beyond belief.
