This guide assumes your organization is using Exchange with Robin and now you're ready to make the switch to Office 365 for a better scheduling experience.
For a smooth transition, we recommend recreating your instance in Office 365 before making any changes in Robin. Follow the outline below to get started. If you prefer to use a migration tool please refer to Microsoft for assistance.
How to connect
A service account is simply a licensed user account with a specific purpose. Connecting with a service account is more configurable and is good for teams that want to maintain the highest level of control over permissions, access logs, etc. We recommend this method because it may feel more comfortable if you're coming from an Exchange environment. Or you can explore connecting via app.
Create a service account in Office 365
Create Office 365 Room calendars
Configure room impersonation
- Configure room impersonation (If connecting via service account method)
Now that Office 365 is configured, it's time to remove the accounts associated with Exchange from your Robin office.
Lastly, reconnect Robin with Office 365
Connect with Robin via service account
Pair your Office 365 calendars to your spaces
Common errors when connecting via service account
- "You can't access this application" when authenticating
- Fix "Calendar not found". --This often means that impersonation hasn't been set up yet.
