Office 365 Calendar for Tempo Timesheets

Abstract

How to install and access Office 365 Calendar for Tempo Timesheets

Integrating your Office 365 calendar with the My Work Calendar in Tempo Timesheets allows you to see all your scheduled meetings and other events there. Then you can quickly log time by just clicking on the calendar event cards in My Work. See Logging Time Using the Activity Feed for more information on this.

If you add the Jira issue key in the title of the Office 365 calendar events (such as INT-45 Meetings), Tempo will pick up the issue key and so that you can log time to that event in just one click!

Note

  • The Office 365 Calendar app is available only to users with the Cloud version of Office 365. Hosted enterprise editions of Office 365 are not supported.

  • Tempo does not store any information from your Office 365 calendar, and calendar events are visible in My Work only while the Office 365 calendar is connected.

Tip

You can also connect and disconnect the Office 365 Calendar app from the Settings settings-icon-issues-side-panel.png menu in My Work in Tempo Timesheets - see Connecting Your External Calendars for more information.

To access and install the app:

  1. Select Apps Apps.jpg in the Tempo sidebar.

  2. On the Office 365 Calendar tile, click Install.

  3. The Calendar Connection page opens where you must choose one of the connection options depending on if you want to use Tempo's automation features or not:

    • Enhanced Calendar with automation: This option includes Tempo Automation which helps you log time faster by displaying your calendar events as activities in your Activity Feed.

    • Basic Calendar connection: This option offers basic functionality without automation.

  4. Sign in with your Microsoft Office 365 account and click Next.

  5. If you have more than one Office 365 calendar, select the one you want to display in My Work.
