Why Mac Outlook won’t show a shared free/ busy calendar that is seen on PC Outlook ?

When a user shares their calendar from outlook on their pc or mac it is not seen by the user who was given permissions on their mac using either outlook 2016 or 2011. This is a known bug on the mac versions of outlook mentioned - documented in microsoft knowledgebase article 2876443  . The work arounds are to either connect to the calendar using outlook webmail (mail.ok.ubc.ca) or have the user sharing their calendar grant reviewer or higher permissions to the calendar - WITH consideration for the security/privacy issues involved.
