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.

This is crazy that this was removed. Having developed similar calendar synchronization capabilities I realize that it isn't as straightforward as it may seem. That beings said, not having the ability to block out time on Exchange calendars with D365 bookings is really embarrassing. Please reinstate this capability ASAP. I'm reluctant to recommend D365 to my clients w/out it.

It blows my mind that this isn't a current feature.Does anyone have any good work arounds for notifying assignees of their assignments other than (A) the project manager creating appointment/meetings for every booking and sending it to them, or (B) the assignee having a project account and also having to log in and check the boards?

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 regardsAnne

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 possibleBRHauke

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!
