Hint

Microsoft 365 calendar synchronization is available starting from OroCRM v4.2.5. Task synchronization is available starting from v4.2.6. To check which application version you are running, see the system information.

To configure email, calendar events, and task synchronization with Microsoft 365 for a particular user, follow the steps outlined below.

Note

To use calendar events and tasks, add the Calendars.ReadWrite and Tasks.ReadWrite API permissions to the list of application permissions as well as the default list.

Note

These settings can be configured globally, per organization, and user.

  1. Before configuring the Microsoft settings for a specific user, make sure that the Azure Active Directory Application Settings are filled in the system configuration (System > Configuration > Integrations > Microsoft Settings). Ask your administrator for help if you do not have the related permissions to check the system configuration.

  2. Once filled, navigate to System > User Management > Users in the main menu.

  3. For the necessary user, hover over the More Options menu to the right and click to start editing the configuration.

  4. Select System Configuration > Integrations > Microsoft Settings in the menu to the left.

  9. In the Calendar Synchronization and Tasks Synchronization sections, define the following:

    • Enabled - Indicates whether the synchronization of calendar events and tasks is enabled for the user.
    • Sync Direction - Data synchronization direction. It can be Oro to Microsoft, Microsoft to Oro, and Bidirectional.
    • Conflict Resolution - The conflict resolution strategy that should be used if the same calendar events and tasks are changed in both Microsoft and Oro. This option is applicable only when bidirectional data synchronization is configured.
