Setting up an Outlook Calendar Integration
Learn how to connect an Outlook Calendar in order to display its events on a page.
After installing Brikit Calendar Integrations, the next step is to connect to an existing Microsoft Outlook Calendar. This guide will lead you through adding credentials, connecting a calendar, and displaying it on a page using the Outlook Calendar Events Browser Macro.
Determine if you have System Administrator privileges
In order to configure an Outlook Calendar, you must be a System Administrator.
Access the Brikit Calendar Integrations configuration page
A site administrator can configure the app by:
- Clicking on the Confluence Administration icon
- Selecting General Configuration
- In the sidebar menu, under the heading Brikit Calendar Configurations, click Outlook
Add a credential
Before you can add a specific Calendar, you must first connect to your Microsoft Outlook Exchange Server. This requires establishing and authenticating credentials.
- Click the
+Add Credential button
Enter the Exchange Server URL (e.g. https://outlook.office365.com/ews/exchange.asmx)
Enter your UserID and Password
You should see a green check mark under the heading 'authentication status'. If not, double check to see that your credentials are correct (examine the URL, UserID, and password). If you are still receiving an error, check with your Exchange Server administrator. You may need to add your Confluence site as an allowed domain to the Outlook Exchange Server whitelist.
Add a calendar
Once your credentials are authenticated, you may now add the Calendar or Calendars associated with this account.
- Click the
+Add Calendar button
- Enter the name of the Calendar
- Enter the Calendar ID (should look like an email address)
- Select the associated credential (it will default to the above credential if you have only included one)
- Add a color to help associate and differentiate this calendar from any others you may add
- Click Save
Navigate to a page and edit it
Add the Outlook Calendar Events Browser Macro
Add the macro to the page, then click the macro and Edit it. In the first macro parameter, be sure to use the same Calendar ID you entered in the Add a Calendar step above. Configure any other parameters as you see fit. Click save in the Macro window, then Save the edits to the page.
The Outlook Calendar Events Browser Macro displays events as a scrollable list. If you'd like to see the events in a traditional monthly calendar view, add the Outlook Calendar Events Month View Macro.
View the calendar on the page
Your connected Calendar should now be displaying events on the page as a list (or, if there are no events, then it should display the No Events Message).
