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. You can quickly log time by just clicking on the calendar event cards in My Work. See Logging Time to Your Activities 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 so that you can log time to that event in just one click.

  • 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.

  • Calendar events are visible in My Work only while the Office 365 calendar is connected.

  • The calendar events that are tagged as Private or Free are not synced to Tempo.

  • Events spanning multiple days may not appear as expected in the timesheet - for best results, use recurring full day events.

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

Install the Office 365 App

An administrator can connect your Tempo account to your Office 365 Calendar if they install the Office 365 Calendar app for the organization. If the app is already installed in your organization, the tile doesn’t have the Install option.

  1. Select Apps in the Tempo sidebar.

  2. On the Office 365 Calendar tile, click Install. The Calendar Connection page opens.

  3. In the Individual tab, choose one of the connection options.

    • Enhanced Calendar with automation includes Tempo Automation, which helps you log time faster by displaying your calendar events in your Activity Feed.

    • Basic Calendar connection offers basic functionality without automation.

    To learn more about the options, see Understanding the differences between Basic and Enhanced Calendar connections.

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

  5. If you have multiple Office 365 calendars, select the one you want to connect to My Work.

  6. Click Go to My Work to see your calendar events in both the Calendar and List views. The calendar activity cards are identified with the Office 365 icon.

When installed, the Office 365 Calendar app is added to the Installed section of the Tempo Apps home page. 

To log time to these Calendar activities, see Logging Time to Your Activities.

Disconnect Your Calendar

If you do not want to see your external calendar as activities in My Work anymore, disconnect the calendar. 

  1. Select Apps in the Tempo sidebar.

  2. Click the Office 365 Calendar tile.

  3. Click Sign out.

The calendar activity event cards are removed from My Work.
