Here's what you need to know
This app is available under arrangement only for TIMIFY Enterprise plans.
This is a private app: contact your Key Account Manager or the TIMIFY Support Team to get an access code.
As a rule, this app is only available for large customers (100+ licences.).
This app is not part of TIMIFY's core product and therefore we do not guarantee that it will always function perfectly.
Technical support for this app is only available for key account customers.
We recommend you consult your data protection officer to ensure you select sync settings that align with your company's data protection policy.
For a list of sync exceptions, check out this article.
❗IMPORTANT❗ Before installing the app, please make sure to check whether it is compatible with your existing infrastructure by confirming the following checklist with us.
Which Exchange version are you currently using? We support 2016+.
Is Exchange Web Service (EWS) activated on your system? We need this to connect to your server and synchronise data.
Which authentication method do you use?: NTLM, Basic. At the moment we only support NTLM, as Basic has not been supported by Microsoft itself for several years.
Does your Exchange support TLS 1.2? If not, the synchronisation of appointments from your Exchange Server to TIMIFY will not work. In general, if you want to test your connectivity, you can use the following MS online tool:
If all the above settings are OK, you are also welcome to set up a demo Exchange email account for us once with the permission setting enabled to retrieve and write calendar data. You should send us back the email, password, username (sometimes username-based), mail server address, a link to a web-based mail client to authenticate and run tests (optional).
