When integrating users’ Google Calendars into your app, there are a host of challenges the Nylas Calendar API solves for you, including:
Streamline scheduling by querying free/busy information for a calendar during a certain time without compromising sensitive information about events, like the location.
Support for creating, updating, and deleting recurring events so your users can easily schedule recurring meetings.
Fully own your application scheduling experience by giving your developers the flexibility to quickly build customizable workflows for your users.
Microsoft 365 Calendar API integration is the process of incorporating the Microsoft 365 Calendar functionality into an application or system using the API. The API allows developers to access and manipulate calendar-related data, such as creating, updating, and retrieving events, managing calendars, and handling notifications.
By integrating the Microsoft 365 Calendar API, developers can enable users to interact with their Microsoft 365 calendars within their applications. This integration empowers users to view, schedule, and manage events and appointments from their Microsoft 365 calendars without switching between different platforms or interfaces.
To start integrating with the Microsoft 365 Calendar API, first, create a Microsoft 365 developer account. Register your application in the Azure portal to obtain credentials. Implement authentication to get an access token, and use it to make API requests for managing calendar events and performing other operations.
EWS provides a SOAP implementation and C# client library for full access to Exchange calendars, or you can use Nylas to abstract away the complexity and receive a simplified integration process.
Both APIs organize calendars and events, but Nylas provides a JSON format for easier implementation. With EWS, you need to authenticate the account and handle permissions, whereas Nylas offers hosted authentication for Microsoft accounts.

To authenticate and authorize access for Microsoft 365 Calendar API integration, you must register your app and obtain credentials from the Azure portal. Use the obtained access token to request API requests to the Microsoft 365 Calendar API, ensuring your app can access the user’s calendar information. Choose an authentication flow for your app, allowing users to log in and grant permission to access their calendar data.
