    Is this a business account that's running Exchange Server or a personal Outlook account that's not tied to Exchange?

    I assume the latter because I use Exchange and everything seamlessly syncs without any additional settings.

    Can't help you with stand-alone Outlook sync.

    Yeah unfortunately Google provides the syncing ability to enterprise users but not personal. I use Go Contacts Sync Mod. It syncs everything, contacts, calendar, etc. Or if it's just calendar you want, set up internet calendar on your Gmail account and import that into outlook. Lots of instructions online.

    You don't need any third party app. What's the domain email?

    I had a similar problem I just resolved. I had the galaxy 7 and Outlook synced and then suddenly most but not all calendar entries vanished from the phone. I tried all the suggestions in this thread to no avail. To fix it I opened the email icon. Select More. Select Settings. Under Accounts select your email address. Snyc account was already on. Select period to sync email. I had selected 1 month, so I changed to All. That did it. Now all the calendar appointments are now visible on my phone calendar.
    Hope this helps someone.

    2016 and google and Microsoft cant exchange basic data. WTF. These petty squabbles are BS. I have an s7 Edge, and I want to put contacts on the edge, but no, I cant. Because my contacts are in outlook, if I add them to the edge they will just disappear. Ive spent hours trying to turn android into a workable business solution just to find disappointment at every turn.

    there is ZERO technical reason that prevents Microsoft and Android from getting along, none. They both use standard protocols and simple transforms.

    Using thr stock email app in my S7Edge (not Gmail app), I have the option to sync my contacts and calendar from my outlook.com account.

    I figured out how to do it with gmail. I dont like the stock app. I had an HTC, I may try their app, I liked the way it looked. Samsung colors are always a bit too korean for me.. (loud). LOL

    I have Outlook 2007 and an S7. I use Akruto, with the Notes/tasks add-on. I'm mostly extremely happy with it. It syncs fast from PC to phone, but not always so great at synching if I've added something on the phone (like a contact or calendar entry) while I was away from the home wifi.. Also, a restriction, that Akruto says is Microsoft, not them, that means it has a limit of how large a task or note it will sync (it truncates if it's too big). But overall, I'm glad I got it.

    Ditto for the Akruto. Been using it for several years for my Samsung Galaxy syncing with Outlook calendar and contacts. Been through Outlook 2010, 2013 and 2016 plus several versions of Android. No issues!

    I used to use the Google Cal sync app myself before they deprecated it... shame.. it worked so easy. I ended up going through a whole bunch of apps and tools to replicate, and either the were complete and utter trash, or they asked me to pony up an excessively large amount of money for such a simple task.

    I ended up saying to hell with it and just loaded the Outlook app on my phone and deal with it not being integrated into my google account. It works out OK enough as the outlook account is my work email only... but not exactly my most ideal choice.

    Or you could put the outlook app on your phone and be all set. I myself using the BlackBerry hub. Have no problem syncing thru active exchange.

    This should be the best answer. Email acts like a backbone for the whole sync. Like if you sync contacts or calendar items from that account. It should be best to set email to sync ALL.

    Okay, I am not a Tech but I have finally been able to do this. Please bear with me.
    I got my S7 in august, I have purchased numerous program that were supposed to syn my calendar ( I use outlook 2007) ON a forum I heard about sync2. I tried the thing for 2 weeks free did not work, I uninstalled it. Then went back and purchased it on paypal so I could get a refund if needed., I got the outlook to sent new events through google to my phone, I got the phone to send new events to google, could not get outlook to pick them up from google.

    Finally 2 days after paying for the program I understood that I am not as smart as I thought i was. I went on to their chat support, provided screen shots and detailed information about what was not happening and what I required. The chat was closed. (this was at 10pm). when I turned my phone on the next day there was a message to log into the chat and give the reference number they supplied.

    I did as requested, the agent asked to log into my computer, they did that and less than 5 minutes later I could see the the events from my phone coming up on my computer.

    Since I could not believe that they could solve the problem so quickly, I have performed numerous test, the new events are always going where they are supposed.

    a word of warning, they may try to pass you to a seller to buy more programs, I was so please that they got the process going I agreed. Then I had to just disconnect.
    sorry, I told you it was long but I do have my calendars syncing now.
