Microsoft Exchange as Data Source

Virto SharePoint Calendar enables to use Microsoft Exchange calendar as a data source and overlay Virto Calendar with user or group Exchange calendars, and Exchange shared calendar. You can overlay Virto Calendar with Exchange 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016, and Online.

Go to Virto Calendar settings and expand “Data Source settings” block. Then use “Create new source” button to add new data source to your calendar.

Now you need to fill out all required fields.

Enter source name. Select “Exchange Calendar” as a data source type.

If Microsoft Exchange is on the same domain as the SharePoint site, you can enable authentication. In this case when a user goes to a page with Virto SharePoint calendar, he will see the items from his Exchange calendar.

Check the box “Authenticate as logged-on user”.

Select required Exchange version and URL of installed Exchange Server (see the example). Click “Test Connection” to verify the information in the fields.

If Microsoft Exchange Server is installed on another domain, you should enter login and password (it can be login and password of a user whose Exchange calendar you need to display) for connection to Exchange Server. Click “Test Connection” to verify the settings.

Now when a user goes to a page with Virto calendar on his SharePoint site, he will see the items from Exchange calendar of a user whose login and password were entered in the settings block.

“Accept or decline appointments” feature allows you to manage Exchange appointment from your SharePoint calendar.

You can apply or cancel the appointment from the tooltip, all changes will be applied to Exchange as well.

“Show appointment attachments in tooltip” feature allows you to display any attached files on event tooltip.

Select a color for items from Exchange Server or use RGB code to define the required one. Specify Tooltip and Advanced options as described in previous sections and click “Save” to add new data source.

Note: if Exchange data source has “Read only” check box, balloon will contain the same “Yes”, Maybe”, “No” buttons (but users will not be able to edit or delete the event).
