Platinum: Microsoft 365 Exchange Connector

March 2022    Tags: , , ,

We added a brand new synchronization option for the Microsoft 365 Exchange Connector. This new feature is specifically designed to simplify the setup and improve the reliability when synchronizing with Exchange Online / Microsoft 365. This new synchronization option provides the following advantages:

  • PracticeMaster (via the Exchange Connector) integrates directly with the Exchange Online server:
    • Outlook does not need to be present on the file server or even the workstation in order to synchronize events, tasks, or contacts with PracticeMaster.
    • Changes made in the web-based Outlook 365 will be synchronized automatically to PracticeMaster.
  • Once enabled, the Exchange Connector has full rights to all of the accounts on the Exchange Online server (including future accounts) for the purposes of synchronizing records.
  • Since the Exchange Connector has rights to edit all users’ accounts, calendar entries made for other users in PracticeMaster are synchronized automatically instead of waiting for the next periodic synchronization.
  • Periodic synchronization occurs at the server, thereby reducing network traffic.
  • The Exchange Connector performs a single periodic synchronization for all users, ensuring that everyone is up-to-date.

Additionally, using the Exchange Connector with an Exchange Online / Microsoft 365 server provides the following advantages over other types of Exchange servers:

  • There is no need to configure a separate Windows user or mailbox for the Exchange Connector.
  • Outlook does not need to be installed at the file server.
  • Changes made to calendar records in Tabs3 Connect are automatically synchronized to the Exchange server instead of waiting for the next periodic synchronization.
  • Event, task, and contact information entered in the web browser version of Outlook 365 is automatically synchronized to PracticeMaster.
