In SharePoint Online I want to create sub-items in Document library/List and wish to reference a Teams, Group or Outlook calendar event.

Is it possible to create a SharePoint List item when an event is created in the above calendars? Then this could be used as a lookup for other document libraries.

Alternatively, is there an Outlook equivalent custom calendar that I can add to SharePoint that allows the same functionality (Create Team meetings, etc ..). Potentially I could add additional functionality to allow a SharePoint list item to be created

I'm looking for an option that can be deployed easily as want to automate the replication of solution for many projects. I think using Power Automate / Power Apps may not be suitable as I cannot create replications easily.

Synchronize a SharePoint Online Calendar with Outlook.

Please the following steps:

  • Sign in the site collection as an admin and create a Calendar App.
  • Go to the Calendar List page, click CALENDAR ribbon page, and then click on "Connect to Outlook" option and it will ask for a permission to open Outlook.

  • Click Yes and it will open in Outlook. It will prompt you to add the user account and password; enter the user account, password and click on calendar option in Outlook, which is shown in the screenshot given below.

  • We can see two Outlook calendars. On Outlook, we can uncheck unwanted from here and select, which we need.
  • Just add the Event or Meeting here or on the SharePoint Calendar List and it will take an effect i.e. either updating from Outlook or Office 365 SPO calendar list.

  • I've sync'ed up the SP online calendar to Outlook on-prem. Working in Outlook, I am able to add an event in the SP calendar. This functionality appears to be missing from OWA. i.e. After syncing, I cannot see SP calendar in OWA. Jan 12, 2021 at 12:22
