There are two versions of Exchange that are available for creating a connection to the Workamajig calendar. Though most people have moved to Microsoft 365 which includes an online version, the tool below can also be used for a local hosted version of Exchange.
The connection to via Exchange allows for a 1-way In; 1-way Out or Bidirectional sync of calendar events. However, as most people would consider Outlook to be the "Primary" calendar for the organization, we would recommend that the sync direction be set to "TO WORKAMAJIG" for most implementations.
The connection to Workamajig requires a tool be installed on any Windows 7 or higher or Windows Server machine.
- SPAM Filters: Ensure that you whitelist Workamajig at all levels. This may include frontline exchange servers, mail servers, and the individual box filters.
- Exchange is a Microsoft product, as such the sync tool we created requires it to be installed on a Windows OS.
- Any tests you do with this type of sync must be used with an Active user in Workamajig.
Supported Versions Of Microsoft Exchange Server
As of October 13, 2020, Workamajig no longer supports Exchange Server 2003, 2007, 2010, 2013
We will no longer support the above versions as Microsoft has discontinued support for these platforms or support for TLS1.2.
This means we will no longer develop fixes to the Exchange Sync Service and will no longer fix sync issues that have been created using these versions. However, you will still able to use these versions to sync with Workamajig if you so desire. If you have any questions regarding this matter, please contact your Workamajig Account Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org
