What is it?
How do I set it up?
What can Hire access, within my team's Outlook account?
- Sign in and read user profile. This permission allows Hire to get refresh tokens. These are used to refresh the access token to maintain uninterrupted calendar sync for a user. More information about this permission can be found here.
- Read all users' full profile. This permission is required to access users' email, in order to identify the users in Outlook and their corresponding user in Hire. More information about this permission can be found here.
- Read and write calendars in all mailboxes. This permission is used to create events from Hire into users' calendars, and to show the events from a user's Outlook calendar in Hire.
I'm set up! Now what?
