Office 365 Calendar API

 
Office 365 Calendar REST API Office 365 is Microsoft's cloud version of its business suite of software. What was an Exchange server that was run locally is now available as a maintenance-free cloud service.

One of the key challenges with integrating with Office 365 is the incompleteness of the API. Features available in other calendar APIs - such as reminders - are nowhere to be seen, making it even more of a challenge to work with multiple calendar API providers. Furthermore, the Office 365 API, just like all the other major calendar APIs, also has significant shortcomings when it comes to protecting data as it works from an 'all or nothing' perspective.

Overcoming these challenges requires continual investment in time and resources, with plenty of development headaches along the way. That’s why we created Cronofy.

What is Cronofy?

Cronofy is an API for easy, seamless calendar integrations across all services. Instead of dealing with individual calendar APIs that were never designed to play well together or provide optimum synchronicity or privacy, use Cronofy to make developing with calendars a breeze. All you need is one free account and our getting started guide for complete calendar integration for Office 365, Google Calendar, iCloud, and more.

Take advantage of unlimited events, and create systems without worrying about user restrictions or per-event charges. It’s just as easy to use five calendar services as one, meaning that your users can enjoy a complete, reliable scheduling service without changing their workflow. Best of all, there’s no hassle or extra work involved for you. Cronofy is able to use the Exchange APIs to interact with the Office 365 infrastructure and this deliver feature parity with on-premise Exchange.

Cronofy is calendar integration made simple, with one unified API for all services.
