What offers Outlook Integration?

Interview Scheduling offers Outlook Integration - the availability to schedule interviews can be pulled from the Outlook calendar.

When an interview is scheduled, the meeting will be sent to the Interviewers’ Outlook calendar.

Since Q1 2016 the Outlook Integration supports also room booking. Please refer to the following Knowledge Base Article: 2275305

Note: the Outlook Integration can only be configured for a single Service account per customer instance. It cannot be setup with multiple Exchange accounts on the same instance.
