Original KB number: 2293282
When you use Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync to connect a mobile device to Exchange Online in Microsoft 365, the calendar on the mobile device and the calendar in the Exchange Online mailbox are out of sync. For example, you experience one or both of the following symptoms:
- Calendar items that are created on the mobile device are missing from the Exchange Online mailbox.
- Calendar items that are created in the Exchange Online mailbox are missing from the mobile device.
Typically, the calendar on the mobile device is missing events that appear in Microsoft Outlook or in Outlook Web App in Exchange Online.
To troubleshoot this issue, re-create the ActiveSync relationship on the mobile device. Depending on how you connect to Exchange Online, the specific steps will vary.

The Outlook add-ins can be re-enabled after the issue is resolved.
Restart the mobile device.
