Office 365 calendar

Configure your Office 365 calendar so that you can display it in Firefly.

Making your calendar public

Log into your Office 365 account and select Calendars on the right side of the navigation bar. You will be presented with a view of your calendar. On the left side of the page, there will be a section called My Calendars. Right-click on Calendar, then select Permissions. Use the drop-down on the right to make your calendar public.

Firefly can only read the default calendar generated by Office 365 and which is simply called Calendar. You will not be able to add any calendars you have created yourself to Firefly.

Adding your events

Once you have made your calendar public, you can start adding events. To add an event, simply double-click on the day you wish to add it. You will be presented with the following screen:

Enter the details for the event, then select Save to publish it.

Adding the calendar to Firefly

To add an Office 365 calendar to Firefly, you must first ensure that it is publicly shared. You should then contact the support team at support@fireflylearning.com and provide them with your calendar details (calendarname:username:password). You will then be able to add your calendar to any page by using the calendar component.

Using the calendar

On any page, choose More Content from the editor toolbar and select Calendar. Tick your Office 365 calendar, then choose the Display style and Date ranges.
