No one wants to do the same task twice, especially when you're trying to work smarter and save time. 

That's why integrating your Office 365 Calendar with Timely is awesome! 💥It lets you automatically import calendar events directly to your Memory timeline. 

All scheduled events show up in your Memory Timeline, for a simple view of the day's appointments. It even imports event titles, so you don't have to fill in any notes. By capturing all the time you actually spend on the event (rather than just what you planned), you can create an accurate log for your time. 

Note: This integration applies to both Office 365 and Outlook calendars. Click here if you're looking for more information about our Outlook email integration.

Calendar Rules:

  • When you integrate your calendar(s), you'll get 28 days calendar history and 14 days in the future. 

  • Data is never sent back or changed in Office 365; what you do in Timely, stays in Timely.

  • Any changes you make in your calendar will automatically update in Timely.

  • Events you change in Timely (e.g. meeting times or tagged projects), will be overridden by any subsequent changes you make in Office 365.

  • Every calendar event in your Office 365 calendar will be imported into Timely except for private events; these are never imported into Timely

Special Notes:

  • All-day events will not show up in Timely. To have these events show up in Timely, you can simply unselect the "all-day" option in the event and enter the From-To times. 

  • Multi-day events will not show up in Timely. 

  • This is not a two-way sync: entries created in Timely will not import into your Office365 calendar. 

  • If you disconnect your Office 365 integration, calendar events will be deleted from your timeline. 

  • Only Office 365 Calendar events will import into Timely

Connect Office 365 with Timely for MS Azure admins

If you’re an admin of a larger organization, you can give admin consent so your team can add the Office 365 integration within Timely. Once a user tries to add Timely, you’ll see the admin consent request in your O365 admin panel which you can accept on behalf of your organization, allowing users to add Timely as an app and connect the integration.

Alternatively, you can open your O365 admin panel, find “Timely 365” as an app, then find “Permissions” to grant access to whoever needs to add the app.
