Connecting OnceHub to your Exchange/Outlook Calendar ensures a real-time integration between your Exchange/Outlook Calendar appointments and your busy time in ScheduleOnce and InviteOnce.
Connecting and configuring your Exchange/Outlook Calendar
Microsoft Exchange is a server that manages mailboxes, contacts, calendars and more. Exchange users never access Exchange directly, but rather access through an email client. This can be an Outlook client on a PC or Mac, a mobile device, or web access via the browser (Outlook Web App, Office 365, etc.). OnceHub integrates directly with Exchange, allowing you to keep using whichever calendar access method you're currently using.
For each of your ScheduleOnce Booking pages, you can select the calendar that bookings will be created in, the calendars that busy time will be retrieved from, and any additional calendars you want to create an event when a booking is made.
When you use InviteOnce to Invite to self-schedule or Schedule on behalf, availability will be retrieved from your Exchange/Outlook Calendar. The InviteOnce algorithmic scheduling engine works out all the available time slots based on your meeting requirements.
Privacy and security
When you connect OnceHub to your Exchange/Outlook Calendar, all credentials and data traffic are fully encrypted. The integration is based on EWS (Exchange Web Services), a well-established official Microsoft protocol. The integration uses the permissions Users already have when viewing calendars (for example: only free/busy), so no new information will be accessible to them.
