Let’s get started here…
Microsoft 365/Exchange to
Cloud to Cloud Sync Connector:
This feature will sync Microsoft 365 or Exchange accounts to PlanPlus Online.
1. Log in to your PlanPlus Online account and click the cog button in top right,
then Preferences >> SetUp Wizard (far left column)
2. Under “Sync, Connectors, and Add-ons”, select “Setup / Manage Your Sync Accounts”
Before configuring your Sync Connectors please check your time zone settings in your Microsoft Account. Improper time zone settings is the #1 cause of appointment duplication.
3. Select ” + Outlook 365 Account “.
4. For Exchange Accounts. If you have a custom Exchange Server URL you will need to enter that URL.
How Do I find my Server URL?
From Desktop Outlook (Connected to Exchange Server) :
- For Outlook 2016: Open Outlook (on your desktop)
- Navigate to File>>Account Settings
- The URL should be displayed
- You will only use the core part of the url.
- If you see https://outlook.office365.com/owa/fctechteam.com/
- You would only use: outlook.office365.com
Tip for Exchange Users to get Sync URL:
- Have Online access to Exchange? Login to your Exchange Email Inbox. The correct URL is probably the core URL that is displayed when you are in your inbox.
- Remove the preceding “http:// or https://
- Exclude anything after the first “/”
- If your URL displayed was: https://outlook.office365.com/owa/?realm=fctechteam.com
- You would only use : outlook.office365.com
