Calendar connection

It's easy to forget to set your presence when entering a meeting. It's just as easy to forget to put yourself back as available once the meeting is over. With our service, Calendar Sync, this will happen automatically.
Let your calendar work together with the exchange

Let your calendar work together with the exchange

With the Calendar Sync service, the exchange will cooperate with your calendar. As soon as you have a planned event in your calendar, where your status is set as busy, you will also be referred as busy in the exchange. When the calendar event has expired, your exchange connection will automatically be set as available again.

If you have a calendar entry planned, where you want to be reachable, you set your status to available in the calendar, then calls will reach you as usual.

Who is at lunch at 4 'o'clock in the afternoon? Could he have forgotten his referral perhaps?

Have your calendar control your phone, it is easy to forget to refer yourself, and perhaps even more difficult to remember to make yourself available again.

Frequently asked questions about Calendar connection

Does all calendar entries affect the reference in the switch?

No, not all calendar entries will be affected. Only the calendar entries where you have selected the busy status will refer you as busy in the corporate exchange.

Will you be automatically available again after a meeting has ended?

Yes, as soon as your meeting is over, you will be available again in your switch. That way, you will never have to, by mistake, be referred to as in a meeting an entire day because you forgot to change your referral. The switch also knows when people are about to enter a meeting so that the operator does not divert calls to a person who will attend a meeting in a few minutes.

Can you still manually overwrite a reference?

Yes, you can make manual changes to change your reference. These manual changes always take precedence over the shortcuts that are made in the calendar.
