    As other people in the tread I would really like to see a native integration of staffhub with outlook. Staffhub is a shared calendar most of the time with employees of the same company who adopted Office 365 hence with a personal Outlook calendar, the lack of this functionality make the adoption poor. We arranged the integration with MS Flow but It is not perfect and and there are some concern with It.

    Same here, there will be no use by our company if, the calender can't be integrated in an extra layer of standard calender apps...

    We have also started using Bookings for appointments, and I'd like it when staff has a day off that it be posted to their Outlook calendar so Bookings knows they are not available.

    Similarly, if their requested time off gets approved, it should sync to their Outlook calendar and note there is a conflict with any existing appointments so they can be rescheduled if necessary.

    I get your frustration. there are many apps that overlap, id say they want to keep it as an app for mobile workers without need of an email / outlook. We do need 100% integration (ms flow, to teams, planner, outlook.

    Dear admin, please combine to the outlook integration ideas.

    There are currently Flow tweaks that will sync staffhub with the outlook calendar. It's not perfect, but you can tweak it so that when a staffhub item is created it is added to the outlook calendar. I've made a modification within the add-on that titles the outlook event as whatever note I have written, instead of a default "From Staffhub" Hope this helps in the short term.

    StaffHub is a fancy calendar. Can it just build on the calendar everyone is already using (Outlook)? The problem with these types of apps is that to start using them you need to enter the same information in multiple different places to make sure it's visible to everyone who needs to see it. I like the idea of StaffHub but in an actual team these types of changes would increase its usability, effectiveness, and adoption rate.

    Can you coordinate StaffHub so that automatically updates with Outlook calendar?
