Outlook is an email client and calendar tool that is part of the Microsoft Office and Microsoft 365 product suites. If Microsoft Outlook is a critical part of your workflow, it can be helpful to configure Glide to send emails from your Outlook account or add events to your Outlook calendar.

Adding and Configuring the Integration
To start using the Outlook integration, you first need to add it to your project.
- In Glide, click the Settings icon in the upper-right corner.
- Click the Integrations tab and then select Outlook.
- Click the Add to app button
- Sign into your Microsoft account.
- Once Glide has access to your Microsoft account, you will be able to send emails and add calendar events with Microsoft Outlook.
Send Email with Outlook
The Send Email with Outlook action allows you to send an email from your own Outlook account. You can add formatting to the body of the email with HTML. To send to multiple recipients in any field, separate each email address with a comma and a space (ex: email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org).
Add Event to Outlook calendar
The Add Event to Outlook calendar action allows you to add an event to your Outlook calendar. If you don't specify a calendar ID, Glide will create the event on your primary calendar.
|Event Title||Name for event||✅|
|Location||Physical location or meeting link||❌|
|Description||Topic of meeting||❌|
|Start date||Start date and time||✅|
|Duration||Length in minutes||✅|
|Attendees||Who is invited||❌|
|Calendar ID||Calendar to create event on||❌|
The action can be added to a component that supports actions (e.g., a button), added to an action sequence in the Action Editor, or after a form is submitted.
You can create a dynamic event by first creating a Template column in the Data Editor and then setting that column as one of your action’s fields.
