ConexED’s Microsoft Outlook Plugin Calendar Integration
Connect your computer’s Windows version Outlook Calendar to your Cranium Cafe online office hours for a full and immediate push/pull sync in real-time. (Mac Outlook plugin is in development. Please try using the Office 365 integration with your Mac Outlook).
Note: If you have access to Office 365, you might want to consider using this syncing method since it will sync to all computer, tablet, and phone Outlook calendars. The O365 calendar is cloud-based and is in the top-level position to push and pull from all Outlook calendars. Please visit our Office365 Calendar Integration page.
First: Locate the “Calendar Settings” tab in the ConexED user panel.
Second: Select the “Select Outlook Plugin” link.
Third: Download the Outlook Plugin located at this webpage https://downloads.craniumcafe.com/.
Fourth: For this integration, you will need a Windows desktop or laptop computer (plugins are not available for MAC computers). Choose the Cranium Cafe plugin located at the top of the Outlook calendar view.
Fifth: Choose the connector and enter your ConexED username and password to “authenticate” the integration.
Note: You will need to know your email associated with your ConexED account and the password. If you use a single sign-on process, you will need to set an password within the use panel’s main left navigation called “Account Settings“.
Once your chosen calendar is synced with ConexED you can schedule Cranium Cafe and Classrooms meetings through the ConexED user panel and they will appear on your Outlook calendar.
Sixth: You will need to setup your Cranium Cafe office hours to allow front desk agent scheduling and students to self schedule through the online calendar scheduling function. If your student services group schedules your office hours then that is done through the Group Management function within Campus Calibrate.
