In this article, you will be given step-by-step instructions to connect your OnceHub account with your Exchange (Outlook) Calendar, using our personal Exchange integration.
To connect to your Exchange Calendar:
- Sign into your OnceHub account, open the left sidebar and select Calendar connection.
- If you are connected to any other calendar, you will need to disconnect first. Existing bookings that have not yet taken place will be added to your Exchange Calendar after you connect.
- Click Connect in ScheduleOnce next to the Exchange calendar. Them, click the Exchange Calendar Connect button. The Connect to Exchange Calendar popup will appear (Figure 1).
- Enter your email and password, as you would normally log into your mailbox via Outlook or any other method. Make sure your credentials are correct in order for the authentication to succeed.
- If your Office 365 account is set up with 2-step verification, you must create an app password first, and then use this special password to connect your ScheduleOnce account to your Office 365 Calendar.
- If connection is successful, skip the rest of this article and configure the Associated calendars section of your Booking pages.

Even if your credentials are correct, the connection might not be successful due to various Exchange configurations. If you see the following screen (Figure 2), additional information will need to be provided.
