How do I access a shared calendar in Office 365 if I am using UwinGmail?

If a faculty or staff member shares their Office 365 calendar with you, you will receive an e-mail similar to the one below.  Unfortunately, the "Add this calendar" button only works if you are using the Outlook client.

To add this calendar to your Gmail calendar, you must first copy the URL that is in the link that says "this URL" highlighted in red below.  To copy this link, right click and hit "copy link address" if using Chrome, or right click and hit "copy shortcut" if using Internet Explorer.

Then inside your Gmail calendar, click the carrot beside "Other Calendars" and select "Add by URL":

 

Copy and paste the URL that into the Add URL box and click the "Add Calendar" button.

This will add the shared calendar to your account, and depending on the level of access granted, you will either see free/busy time only, or calendar details.
