Mac: Force Outlook calendar to update

Date: 2019-09-16 | mac | outlook | tutorial | calendar |


I'm using Outlook on Mac and I find that often my calendar isn't up-to-date with meeting requests I get. How can I force my calendar to update?


Unfortunately there's no good way to always ensure that your calendar is up to date. What you can do is manually force it to update whenever you want to look at it.

To force your Mac calendar to update, you can go to the inbox view (where you see your mail) and, in the top bar, click the Send & Receive button. This will tell Outlook to go look for new information and send any information that's pending. In the process, this will also update any calendar information.
