Options for Connecting to Office 365

There are two ways to connect to your Office 365 Calendar:

  1. You can connect seamlessly using an encrypted OAuth 2.0 connection, or
  2. You can connect with an app-specific password and an encrypted Exchange Web Services connection.

Connect using an encrypted OAuth 2.0 connection

When you connect to your Office 365 Calendar with an encrypted OAuth 2.0 connection, OnceHub does not store your password. Instead, a token generated by Microsoft is used to communicate with the Office 365 API. In order to maintain security, the Office 365 password expires automatically after 90 days. When this happens, your Office 365 calendar is disconnected from OnceHub. This means that you will have to reconnect to Office 365 every 90 days.

Connect with an app-specific password and an encrypted Exchange Web Services connection

When you connect to your Office 365 calendar with an app-specific password, you are permanently authenticating the OnceHub application with your Office 365 Calendar. App-specific passwords never expire, which ensures that OnceHub will connect to Office 365 continuously and without interruption.

Using an app-specific password guarantees a secure and encrypted connection, and can be used for both personal and corporate Calendar connections. Learn how to connect to the Exchange server with an app-specific password and an encrypted Exchange Web Services connection
