You can log into Appogee HR using a Microsoft Office 365 account through our Single Sign On (SSO) option. You do not need the integration to be enabled for this to work.
The integration with your Microsoft Office 365 account will give you the following additional features:
- Log in to Appogee HR with your Office 365 account - no password required
- Quickly import your Office 365 users into Appogee HR
- Sync leave requests with your Office 365 Outlook calendar
- Access to Appogee Leave for Office - a free plugin for Microsoft Office that provides access to Appogee Leave direct from your Outlook mailbox and calendar.
In order for this functionality to work, Appogee HR must be fully installed to your Office 365 domain, with the correct access granted. Only an Office 365 administrator with the permissions to authorise 3rd party applications can grant access, so they will need to be involved in this process. To install Appogee HR into your Office 365 domain, follow these steps:
Go to System Config > Office 365.
You will then be presented with the following screen where you can click on 'Enable Office 365 Integration'
Once you click on 'Enable Office 365 Integration', you need to confirm that you are an administrator for Office 365 after which you will be presented with the standard (OAuth) Office 365 3rd Party permissions screen. The permissions listed are used by Appogee HR exclusively to enable the benefits an integrated office suite brings - the ability to provide calendar and user integration.
Accept the permissions and you will be redirected to Appogee HR where you can see your Office 365 Integration Status and the O365 Admin email address.
If you are not the Office 365 administrator, enter the email address of your Office 365 administrator and they will receive an email with instructions on how to integrate Appogee HR with Office 365.
