Intergration of Outlook Calendar and Hubspot

SOLVE
New Contributor

We have been using the calendar functionality within the MS Office 365 suite and we would like to intergrate that with Hubspot as it has worked for us so well.

The problem is inorder to do this we have to sync the gmail calendar to the Outlook one and then sync the Gmail calendar to Hubspot.

Is there a way to have this functionality put through to your development team if it doesnt exist or please may you assist in giving a detailed process of achieving this.

 

The best outcome would be for us to have a seamless intergration with our Outlook calendar and Hubspot.

 

Thank you

Hi @3392558, thanks so much for posting! So, as you've noticed, HubSpot Sales currently only integrates with Google Calendar. However, we are highly aware of the demand for a similar integration with Outlook calendar, and are currently planning the development of this feature. You can find a post on the Ideas Forum from someone on HubSpot's CRM team here: https://community.hubspot.com/t5/Email-Outlook/Intergration-of-Outlook-Calendar-and-Hubspot/m-p/1735...

 

Please upvote and comment on that idea whenever you get the chance, both to present your use case and track the project's progress!

Could you please provide an update on the development of this feature.

 

Our organisation has just moved from Google Apps to Office 365 and now the integration with Hubspot is broken.

Hi,

 

this is tyhe only thing stopping us migrating from ACT! to hubspot. If you fixed it you'd have a £10k/annum customer...

Has any progress been made with this?  I was able to sync to Google Calender, but I only use Outlook Calendar and don't want to have to sync Hubspot to Google and then find a way to snyc Google to Outlook.

 

This seems to be such a no brainer.  Is Microsoft preventing this?   Surely there are tons of Office 365 users out there that want this solution as much as I do.

Can you please provide status on this?  Seems odd that it has taken two years to get this integration with the Outlook Calendar.  This would make this process so much more seamless! Is this still on your radar?

This would all us to be professional with our clients. All of our correspondence come from our own URL and with the calendar invite it does not. Do not very professional. Also, it would be great to have a subjkect and address field as well in HubSpot. Thank you.

Any update to this? We know we can make the integration ourselves using the HubSpoint API and Micrsoft Graph API, I would just really prefer not to have to do that...Feels like his should be done by Hubspot natively.

Another annoying oversell by Hubspot - prior to sign-up we were told HS integrates with Office365 / Calendar but it doesn't. 

 

When you schedule a meeting, this will not show up anywhere apart from a google calendar (if connected) and the place you set the mtg up - eg. contact, deal or company. There is no reminder or way to notify you of what mtgs you have coming up. 

 

HS need to integrate outlook calendar promptly! Vote this article up to bring it to their attention. 

 

I phoned help and they couldn't even give me a straight answer on this until i pointed them to this article.

FYI, HS helpdesk informed us this work around option for making Outlook calendar work: = very clonky

 

Scheduling from contact/company/deal then syncing to a calendar is only supported on Google calendar at this time. This is my suggested process to my other customers who are also on Outlook:

 

-Schedule a meeting on Outlook (if the booking was made on the Meetings link, then simply accept the booking)

-In the contact/company/deal record, use "Log activity" then select the date and time based on your Outlook invite. Make sure to associate the contact/company/deal accordingly depending on which record type you're logging the activity (e.g. if on deal record, then associate the activity with the appropriate contact). This becomes the "next activity" for the record.

-To track, create a Saved Filter view using the filter "Next Activity". The most basic is "is known" or you can set a time period of your choice.
