O365 administrator sign-in
The first time you ever set up the integration in your digital workplace, your Office 365 administrator must sign in to it using the Sign in as Microsoft Admin link on the authentication prompt of the integration. This only needs to be done once per Office 365 environment. Once an O365 administrator grants permissions to the app, the integration can be used anywhere in your digital workplace without additional administrator approvals.
After an O365 administrator grants permissions, edit the integration to disable and hide the Sign in as Microsoft Admin link.

Frequently asked questions
Can I sync my calendar to an Igloo calendar?
Not directly. You can, however, invite an Igloo calendar to an event in your O365 calendar. See Adding content via email for more detail.
Can I search my O365 Calendar through the normal Igloo search feature?
Your O365 Calendar cannot be searched by Igloo. Igloo does not have direct access to that information due to security restrictions.
Can I use the O365 Calendar widget to display shared calendars?
No, the widget is only able to show your personal calendars or group calendars due to limitations with the APIs available from Microsoft.
