Use Meetings with Outlook Exchange

Currently, only Google Calendar or Outlook 365 are compatible with HubSpot Meetings. It would be great to see additional calendar compatibility with other Microsoft licenses, particularly Outlook 2013 available via Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2013.

Hello all! I'm very excited to announce that as of today the Microsoft Exchange integration for Meetings (and email!) is now available for all portals. This also includes the ability to configure a static IP range that can be added to an allowlist by IT admins, if needed. Please check out our Knowledgebase docs and happy HubSpotting 😀

In Beta
March 04, 2022 09:43 AM

We have made improvements to the connection rate and supportability of our Meeting support for Exchange that has previously been closed, and we are excited to announce that we are reopening support for public use! If you would like access to this beta, you can make a request to your HubSpot Success rep or through one of our support channels, and they will be able to request access via our internal 'Customer Success' app!

 

This connection will provide you and your team with the ability to connect your calendar to the Meetings tool to create a Meetings scheduling page for bookings. One limitation to this connection is the calendar sync, meaning events created in an Exchange calendar will not be automatically synced to HubSpot, and meeting events created from a CRM record (such as a Contact) will not be added to a calendar. This support is currently limited to the Meetings tool and the ability to book meetings from a Meetings scheduling page.

 

Due to the nature of Exchange servers, there may be some cases that require additional support, or may run into issues with connectivity.

The CalDAV beta that was opened in June is officially closed. A big thank you to our beta testers who helped us determine that this protocol isn't the best solution for this problem. Any beta users successfully using CalDAV can continue to do so if they wish, but we will not be expanding the offering to new users or maintaining it. We still believe it is important to have a way for any user to connect their calendar to Meetings and will be exploring other solutions in the coming year. Please upvote this idea to receive email notifications when we have updates!

We have the ability to connect to Meetings via the CalDAV protocol in a small beta. It is known to work explicitly for Zoho, Yahoo, and Fastmail accounts. If you are interested in joining, fill out this form. Knowledge doc is here.

I would really like Hubspot Meetings to work with my office outlook.  We use an enterprise version of outlook, we don't use office 365, and apparently it will only work with office 365. 

 

I don't think a company our size will migrate an entire company to 365 so I can get meetings.  But using it with my google account is annoying, because google won't seamlessly sync up with outlook either. 

 

That's something I'd really like to see.

I LOVE that Meetings is now an option for all accounts! My clients are really excited about this. However, for one client that is very interested - they use Apple Calendar and Exchange for Apple Mail as their main calendar. Asking them to move over calendar systems is not an option. I would love to see Meetings open up to more calendar functions. Are there plans for this in the future?

I was having the same challenge. I used this free utility to sync my outlook and google calendars:

Then the Meetings feature in HubSpot works great!

We're on out own hosted Exchange and based on conversations with our IT manager, I don't see much of a chance that we move all of our BDRs and AEs to Office 365. And the whole company won't be switching to Google either. 

 

Having a plugin or something that syncs Exchange with Meetings would be great. It's a feature that we'd like to work into our upcoming lead -> MQL nurture workflow, but can't right now since the calendar sync doesn't work for us.

Please make meetings work with outlook!

We really need the Hubspot and on-premise Exchange integration. We are forced to  stay on on-premise Exchange due to compliancy our company must adhere to in order to keep our contracts and do business going forward. This is causing us to not spend money with Hubspot and upgrade our existing licensing or buy more licensing as we are seeking alternatives.

 

Hubspot....you are losing business over this. Please address!

Meetings really needs to be implemented. Hubspot has so may posibilties clients are not able to use due to the lack of intergration with Exchange servers. please stop just depending on cloud based services. if you want larger corperations to start using your product to its full potential, all features need to be intergrated with exchange. I can see this does not have alot of request which is a shame, but the expense to move our service to a cloud based email system does not have a good ROI. Thanks

One of our clients uses Exchange. After connecting it to HubSpot, we were disappointed to find that connecting the client's reps' calendars wasn't possible. This is definitely something that needs to be implemented

Agree with all previous commenters -- we use Outlook on premise and do not have Office 365. We explored switching to Office 365 but it would be a huge expense and also raises compliance concerns. Are there any plans to connect Meetings with Outlook Exchange? This feature would greatly help our sales team and also make our data more complete on what initiatives are driving meetings.

I would also love to see Hubspot Meetings Tool integrate with Exchange/Outlook. I know that there may be the option to integrate Outlook with a GCal or O365 then connect one of those inboxes to Hubspot. This might would be a good fix if one or two people would be using Meetings, but for our case, we would like everyone to access this. That's a lot of tidious steps for everyone in our company to do that

 

I'm not sure if it's in Hubspot's plan to create that integration, but that sure would be nice if it was 🙂

We're disappointed that the CalDAV option didn't work out as we think this would have been the best way to integrate with our email platform, which is Zimbra ZCS.  If you support Exchange Activesync or Exchange Web Services protocols it's possible this might also work for us as Zimbra has support for both.

Completely agree with the other comments. This needs to happen for Micrsoft Exchange users. This would help our organization out so much, we spend a lot of needless time  creating and sending outlook meeting requests when it could be automated.

We are working on a website redesign, and looking into the Hubspot meeting calendar. But, we use an on-premise Exchange environment. We host our own email, and do not have a solution to use google or office 365. Adding this feature would be super helpful. Are there any future plans to make this possible?

Good morning - looking for tips on how to connect Meeetings when using an internally hosted Exchange server.  We simply don't use Google calandars - all events are tracked in Outlook.  

Is there a work around that doesn't invovle the Exchange extension?

Hey @BLEE,

 

There is a beta for Exchange right now I believe, I've used this with a few other clients.  Maybe @jennysowyrda can help out here?

BLEE

thanks @Bryantworks.  We are using the Beta version and the integration is working for email, the calendar isn't synced over to Meetings though.  Maybe its coming in a 2.0?

Hmm, if you're in the correct beta you should see this:
