Hi, Lana, here is a code may help you, please do as follow:
in Excel, create a sheet that contains subject, startdate, enddate, starttime, endtime, location, description and invitees, like this:
Then, press Alt + F11 keys to enable the Miscrosoft Visual Basic for Applications windown, click Tool > References to check Microsoft Outlook 16.0 library option, click OK.
Then click Insert > Module and copy and paste below code to the module,
Sub CreateMeetingWithMultipleInvitees()
Dim xOlApp As Outlook.Application
Dim xAppointmentItem As Outlook.AppointmentItem
Dim xRng As Range
Dim xCell As Range
On Error Resume Next
Set xRng = Application.InputBox("select the invitees:", "Kutools for Excel", , , , , , 8)
Set xOlApp = CreateObject("Outlook.application")
Set xAppointmentItem = xOlApp.CreateItem(olAppointmentItem)
With xAppointmentItem
  .Subject = Range("A2").Value
  .Start = Range("B2").Value & " " & Range("D2").Text
  .End = Range("C2").Value & " " & Range("E2").Text
  .Location = Range("F2").Value
  .Body = Range("G2").Value
End With
For Each xCell In xRng
  xAppointmentItem.Recipients.Add xCell.Value
xAppointmentItem.MeetingStatus = olMeeting

Dag, ik heb dit gedaan maar als ik de agenda deel, zien de anderen geen een afspraak staan. Enig idee hoe ik dit kan oplossen? Thx! Groet, Wendy

Hi, Wendy, I have tested your question, in my version, the shared calendar is successfully viewed. Please follow below steps to achieve:
1. right click at the calendar you want to share, click Share Calendar.
2. in the popping window, click To to choose the people you want to share the calendar, then click Send.
3. the people who received the email contains the shared calendar, click Open this Calendar in the email.
Then he(she) will see the shared calendar and appointments in right side.
