You cannot install Calendar Browser directly in the Office 365 Outlook. Instead you have to create a shared mailbox or public folder in Office 365 Exchange and then use with Calendar Browser.
When the shared mailbox is ready for use, each Calendar Browser user needs to add the shared mailbox to his/her local Outlook. This might be done automatically, but if not, the Tips article also describes how to add the shared mailbox manually.
Install Calendar Browser:
The shared mailbox solution is most suited for a smaller team, or when only a limited group should have the right to book resources. For a bigger group a shared mailbox will take too much time to handle, as each user has to get permissions on the shared mailbox and on the calendars.
For bigger groups we instead recommend installation in a public folder.
Another option for Office 365 is OWA (Outlook Web App), but OWA does not give the full Calendar Browser functionality.
A future version of Calendar Browser will give a possibility to use SharePoint, including Office 365 SharePoint, for the booking of resources.
