Sync your calendars two-way to easily keep track of your tasks, timelines, and events from both Nifty and within Outlook.

With this powerful integration, you can:

  • Create and assign Tasks in Nifty to have them automatically appear in the Google Calendar of the assigned user

  • Create Events in your Outlook Calendar(s) and have them appear in your Nifty Calendar

  • Keep track of changes to task names, descriptions, start dates, and due dates

πŸ‘‰ Note: Tasks must be assigned to users for syncing to their Outlook calendar.

✨ Tip: To ensure your most-used Outlook Calendars do not get overlapped by Nifty tasks, we suggest to create a brand new Outlook Calendar. You can easily show or hide the new Outlook Calendar to display your tasks.

Installing the Outlook Calendar App

Visit the App Center in Profile Settings, select the Microsoft Suite integration. Follow the integration flow with the desired Microsoft account.

Once you've logged into your Outlook account, configure the calendars that you'd like to have appear in your Nifty calendar.

Two-way Sync

Enabling the Two-way Sync switch will make it that Nifty Tasks appear in the Outlook Calendar of your choice. Select the calendar you wish to sync, and select the Sync existing tasks button before pressing Done.

Viewing your Integrated Calendar

The My Calendar tab in the Calendar sidebar section will now give you the option to flip through your integrated Outlook Calendars and view Outlook events alongside your Nifty tasks.
