Reinstate the syncing of resource bookings with the resource's Outlook calendar, a feature that was greatly missed when it was depreciated becuase at the moment to get an Outlook appointment we have to use a multitude of MS Flows, Workflows and JS to get an appointment record created against a booking and ensure that it is kept upto date with time changes. Sometime like this should be a basic out of the box feature for a resource scheduling system.

Hi Zach, Thank you for your feedback!

Currently this feature is not in our short term roadmap; however, we are tracking it and if we get more feedback and votes, we may consider it in the future.

Thanks,

Vinay Nalam,

PM, Microsoft.

Our Field Service customer wants to continue using Outlook for Resource Scheduling as long as this functionality isn't available. They need all of their staff to be able to see the Bookings when creating other appointments with their FS engineers. But not all of them are able to get a licence for Dynamics.

Hello Vinay,


I can only agree to this.

Our users would be really pleased to have a sync with their outlook calendar.


Kind regards

Hi Vinay,


We strongly support this request. Our users are absolutely excited about Universal Resource Scheduling, but this deprecated feature is a show-stopper for them to use it widely (we are talking about 1.5k users). Please consider this feature to be available as soon as possible

Strong push from Siemens also on this feature! This is obvious and a must have as owner of Dynamics Field Service and MS Outlook

So I guess instead of Microsoft putting a single FTE on this feature and develop it within some months, each and every Customer who uses Universal Resource Scheduling (every Field Service, Project Ops Customer) has to build this feature using Flows as a workaround for themselves?

Really?

Can't believe this feature was ever taken out!

Hey Vinay, you know I'm passionate about this cause, lets hope it can be done sooner than later?
Any chance we could get the deprecation lifted from the previous functionality until this is fully functional
