Our integration with Outlook Calendar will allow you to automatically sync events from your calendar to Busy. If you are smart about how you name your calendar events, Busy will try to automatically assign a project and tag to the entry, logging the hours for you.
The Outlook Calendar sync will look at the content in your calendar event title when trying to match Busy projects and tags.
If you have a meeting with a client in your calendar where the title is «Workshop with Client Ltd. regarding new visual identity» Busy will analyse that title and try to match it with a project and tag that already exists in your workspace.
If you in Busy have a project with your client's name «Client Ltd.» and a tag named «Workshop», Busy should automatically match this for you.
Be aware that for this to work you will have to be structured in your calendar. We do not recommend connecting your calendar to Busy if your calendar is a mess.
Connect your Microsoft account to Busy on the Integrations page, located in settings. Here, press the «Connect your Microsoft Account» button. From there, Microsoft will guide you through the connection.
After completing connection, Microsoft redirects you back to the integrations page, where you will see the email for the connected Microsoft account displayed.
Now, Busy syncronizes all future calendar events to your timeline. Events from your calendar will have a calendar icon on them and information about where the entry comes from by opening it. All entries connected to a future calendar event synchronizes according to the changes you make in your calendar. One day after the event has passed, the entry in Busy will detach from the calendar event, and future changes to the entry must be done directly in Busy.
To disconnect your calendar from Busy, navigate to the Integrations page in settings, and press disconnect. In the dialog, you will have the option to delete all future calendar events already synced with Busy by pressing disconnect and delete. If you wish to keep your upcoming synchronized events, you can press disconnect.
