Outlook and calender
Important when using multiple calendars
ATTENTION: In order to be able to use multiple calendars in Cloudmonki we do NOT recommend the Exchange protocol, but to use the IMAP protocol for integrating the emailbox. Although contacts and calendars are automatically integrated into Outlook via Exchange, it is not possible to integrate multiple calendars. So if you plan to display your colleagues’ calendars in Outlook, include your emailbox via IMAP and then follow this tutorial.
Share calendar and subscribe
If you want to include calendars of colleagues, this colleagues must first give the approval for you. See the following tutorial:
Share calendars with colleagues
After the colleague has granted the access to his calendar, you must still subscribe to the calendar, see the following tutorial:

So that the integration of calendars works first a small additional application must be installed, this is called “Caldav Synchronizer” and can be downloaded here.

The settings can be left at the standard.
