Sync Items and Subitems from Multiple Boards to Outlook Calendar

I would like our deadline columns in Monday to sync with an Outlook calendar. So far I have successfully done this with one date column from one board, but I have dozens more boards to go. I do not want to add dozens of calendars to Outlook to achieve this. (And this doesn’t help me gain access to the dates hidden in Subitems, because seemingly I cannot sync those with Outlook)

I tried creating a dashboard calendar on Monday, which pulls in the correct items and subitems from multiple boards. This looks great, and is exactly the functionality I want in Outlook. However, I can’t figure out how to create a sync URL between a dashboard and an Outlook calendar.

I have several questions from this process:

  1. Does anyone know of a way to create a calendar sync URL between a dashboard and an Outlook calendar?
  2. Can I sync subitems with an Outlook calendar, or just Items?
  3. Is there a more streamlined way to sync dates from multiple boards with Outlook, or do I need actually import dozens of URLs and calendars to make this work?

Thanks for any help you can provide!

I have the same questions - thanks for asking them so succinctly Katrina.
The requirement to sync dates from boards with separate outlook calendars is unworkable for us.

May I ask how you got your subitems to show on calendar view? Monday.com say its not supported?

Hi Katrina,

I was hoping you could point me in the direction of the instructions you used to sync the subitems with an Outlook calendar?

Many thanks

Hi,

I am with zzBots! I believe we can help solve your problem. We have both 1-Way and 2-Way syncs for Monday.com and Outlook calendar.

Here is a Bot Pack that will automatically sync Monday.com items to Outlook Events: https://www.zzbots.com/store/mondaycom-microsoft-outlook-calendar-online-1-way-sync

This Bot may require some customization after the install because Monday.com has dynamic and customizable fields.

Hope this helps!

BUMP. Please, someone, advise!

I’m helping roll out Monday. com to an O365 organization, and the currently-available integration recipes really don’t cut it. This organization cannot use any third-party apps or automation platforms. The functionality we need is extremely basic and I cannot fathom that it’s not part of the native integration.

Are we missing something?!
