Outlook API for Replicon

I need an API for Outlook Calendar.  I have users who work in the field and use Outlook Calendar for tracking appointments and time via their mobile device.  It would be nice to be able to capture those hours directly into Replicon via an API using the Project Code (UID) in Replicon.  We have tried the Replicon App without much success.  I really need a seamless integration between the two systems.

If anyone can help with this or make some suggestions, it would be greatly appreciated.

I can provide specifics, if need be.

Thx,

Tom

Hi Thomas,

Thank you for using the Replicon Community!

We can have the events picked from outlook and integrate them as projects and hours in Replicon. However, this integration is possible in the Gen 3 version of Replicon. We could observe that you are in the older version of Replicon and would request you to look upon migrating to the latest version in order to help us proceed with the request.

Hi Aashnee,

I am previewing the the Gen 3 now in a trial instance.  How can the integration be done in the trial instance for me to test?

We can perform a small demo for you on how the integration will be done and how things will be transferred from Outlook to Replicon. Can you help us with some slots for a demo?

If you are asking for a day and time yes.  How long is the demo and who will be conducting it?

Hi Thomas, 

We have develop a plugin for the Outlook that integrate the appointments on replicon. 
The only thing that you have to make is to identify the project on the subject of the appointment. When you right click and select send to replicon the plugin fetch the tasks from replicon and integrate the time entry.

If you have more questions about this please feel free to ask. 

Best regards,

The plugin isn't released and it's for our internal usage. 

If you need some development help and a hint about the architecture please fell free to ask. 

I can confirm that it won't take more then a week for a person that isn't experienced with development in VBA
