There are two ways to synchronize your calendar in Apple Calendar:
Two-way sync (CalDAV) - allows you to view and update Team Calendars events in Apple Calendar.
Requires Team Calendars (available with Confluence Premium).
One-way sync (iCal) - allows you to view (but not update) Team Calendars events in Apple Calendar.
Subscribe with two-way synchronization (CalDAV)
Two-way synchronization allows you to view and update Team Calendars events in macOS.
These instructions are for Apple Calendar 10.15 on MacOS Catalina. Your version may differ slightly. To subscribe to Team Calendars from your Apple Calendar with CalDAV, you’ll need the following information:

To get your Confluence server address:
In the top nav, choose Apps > Calendars.
Select the the More actions menu (•••) for your calendar in the side nav and choose Subscribe.
In the Calendar app dropdown, select Apple Calendar (macOS).
If prompted, add the calendar to My Calendars. If you don’t add it to My Calendars, it won’t sync.
