How to sync Recruiterbox with your Outlook Calendar

If your organization uses Outlook calendars in conjunction with Recruiterbox, we’re about to make your team’s life a whole lot easier!

What is it?

You can now sync your entire team’s calendars by connecting just a single Outlook Admin account.

How do I set it up?

Start by going to Settings > Sync Calendar where you’ll see an option to “Connect an Outlook Admin Account”
Clicking this button will take you to microsoftonline.com where you will log in with your Outlook Admin credentials
Please note: This will only work if you are an Admin on your team’s Outlook account. These Admin users may not necessarily be the same as your Recruiterbox account’s Super Admin users. Should you attempt to connect as an Outlook Admin but don’t have the right access, you’ll receive a message like below:

If you run into this, that’s okay! Just reach out to your Outlook Admin to log into their account to Accept the sync, like so:

I'm set up! Now what?

Once you have set up the sync, all of your team’s calendars will be connected with Recruiterbox based on email addresses. That means you will be able to see everyone’s availability as you schedule interviews, and events will auto-sync to their external Outlook calendars.
This sync also means you don’t have to worry about any individual calendar getting disconnected, as syncing an Outlook Admin’s account will sync all the calendars in that account.

What if I used Outlook Exchange?

Our Exchange sync requires at minimum Exchange 2016 CU3 On Premise or, a current Microsoft 365 Exchange in the Cloud tenant.

For on premise please refer to the requirements here and here.
