The "Publish to WebDAV Server" option is missing from the Calendar folder shortcut menu

Note This issue doesn't occur if you try to share a calendar that’s not located in the mailbox. For example, if you try to share a Calendar folder from your local personal folders file (.pst), the Publish to WebDAV Server option is available.
Cause
This issue occurs if both the following conditions are true:

  • The sharing policy that's set for the Exchange organization or the mailbox has the "Anonymous" domain specified in the Domains parameter.
  • You try to publish a Calendar folder in an Exchange mailbox or an Exchange Online mailbox.
For example, the following Exchange PowerShell command and results shows a default sharing policy that uses this configuration.

Command:
Get-SharingPolicy | FL domains
Results:
Domains : {Anonymous:CalendarSharingFreeBusySimple}
Resolution
In this configuration, share the Exchange calendar folder together with users in domains that are allowed by the Exchange administrator. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Right-click the Calendar folder, click Share, and then click Publish This Calendar.

    Notes

    • If you're prompted to do this, enter your credentials.
    • Your default browser opens, and the Calendar Publishing - Calendar page is displayed.

  3. Note the URLs that are provided in the link for subscribing to this calendar and for viewing the calendar in a web browser.
