Installing the PC connector for Outlook

ScheduleOnce uses a proprietary connector to establish a secure connection with your Outlook Calendar. Once connected, all communication with your Outlook Calendar is encrypted, keeping your calendar data safe and secure.

In this article, you will learn how to generate ScheduleOnce authentication credentials and how to install the ScheduleOnce connector for Outlook on your Windows PC (Mac is not supported).

ImportantIn addition to connecting with your Outlook Calendar on your PC, ScheduleOnce can also connect directly to the Office 365 API. This might be a more stable option than connecting to your local computer's Outlook software through a downloaded connector. If you use Office 365, ScheduleOnce recommends that you connect through our API integration with the Office 365 cloud rather than through the Outlook client integration.

Requirements:

  • A Windows PC
  • Microsoft Outlook 2007 or newer

Downloading the connector:

  1. In your ScheduleOnce application, go to Setup, open the left side bar, and select Calendar integration.
  2. On the Calendar integration page, click the Download button in the PC connector for Outlook section (see Figure 1).

You will need these credentials to sign in to the connector.
