Connect with Outlook Calendar Connect with Outlook Calendar

In order to import your Outlook Calendar events into Priority Matrix, please authorize read-access to your Microsoft account. We only require read access, as we don't need to make changes to your events, only read their content.

First of all, you need a Priority Matrix account. It takes one minute! Or you can sign in if you already have one.

How does the Outlook connector work?

Once you, or your administrator, connect Priority Matrix with Outlook, we will import all the relevant Outlook events, and create a new Priority Matrix project which contains links to the original event data. That way you can prioritize the external events and open them if needed, but you don't need to duplicate work.

Currently, for performance purposes, we limit the set of imported events to those with a due date between now and 31 days into the future.

Can I make changes to my data on Priority Matrix?

This integration, and all other task connectors, is one-way from Outlook to Priority Matrix. This means that if you make changes to the title or notes in your items on the PM side, they will NOT propagate back to Outlook, and eventually your changes may be overwritten by what comes from Outlook. You can still add comments, assign the item, set due dates and attach files.

How often do my items refresh?

Whenever there are changes to the original Outlook events, they sync automatically into Priority Matrix, without you having to move a finger. Currently, the refresh rate is once every 60 minutes, so if you made a change, and it has not yet been reflected on your Priority Matrix account, give it a little longer as it may be too soon.

My items disappeared

When an Outlook even becomes overdue, it will be marked as completed in Priority Matrix. This doesn't mean that it was deleted, but rather that it was hidden from the default view. In order to view completed items, open the filters tab and select to show completed items.

What if I change my mind?

If you decide that you don't want your Outlook events showing up in your Priority Matrix account, you can click the disconnect button and choose between simply stopping the data sync, or completely erase any reference from Priority Matrix.

In any case, Priority Matrix does not modify your Outlook data, since we only require read access to provide this functionality.

Are there other connectors?

We're glad you ask! Yes, there are other task connectors, and more coming soon. Drop us a line if you would like to see something specific.
