Sage CRM offers Exchange/Office 365 Integration which allows you to synchronize Contacts, Appointments and Tasks between Sage CRM and Exchange/Office 365. This article will guide you through setting up an account in Office 365 for the Sage CRM integration to use.
- Log into your Office 365 Portal (portal.office365.com) with an administrator account.
- Create a new user with a mailbox to use for the integration (e.g. email@example.com)
- Launch the Exchange Admin Center
- Browse to Permissions -> Admin Roles
- Click on + to add a new role
- In the role group dialog box, provide a name for your Role Group (e.g. "Sage CRM Exchange Integration")
- Under Role, click + to add a role.
- Select Application Impersonation, click Add and then click OK.
- Under Members, click + and add the user you created in Step 2 (who needs to have a working mailbox)
- Click Save
Now that you have configured an Office 365 account that can be used for the integration, we can move onto the next article to set up Sage CRM.
