PushFar's Outlook Calendars and Microsoft Teams integration options enable participants to seamlessly schedule meetings within PushFar, whilst checking whether their respective mentor or mentee (or alternative phraseology) participant is free or busy and enable the option of generating a Microsoft Teams meeting link type too.
The first option, Outlook Calendars, requires just Calendars.Read as an option. This can share free/busy and potentially conflicting times with an individual's respective mentor or mentee.
The second option, Microsoft Teams, requires Calendars.ReadWrite and OnlineMeetings.ReadWrite.All permissions in Azure AD Application Permissions. When a meeting is requested, participants will receive into their Calendar the meeting, once the requested participant accept or decline the meeting on PushFar platform, it will reflect into Outlook calendar as well. If one of the participants cancel the meeting, it will be removed from both participants calendars.
