Outlook Calendar REST API reference (version 2.0)

Applies to: Exchange Online | Office 365 | Hotmail.com | Live.com | MSN.com | Outlook.com | Passport.com

The Calendar API provides access to events, calendar, and calendar group data secured by Azure Active Directory on Office 365, and to similar data in Microsoft accounts specifically in these domains: Hotmail.com, Live.com, MSN.com, Outlook.com, and Passport.com.

Note

  • The exception is the API to find meeting times, which applies to only Office 365 mailboxes (on Azure AD) and not to Microsoft accounts.
  • For simplicity of reference, the rest of this article uses Outlook.com to include these Microsoft account domains.

All Calendar API operations

Event operations

An event represents an appointment or meeting on the user's calendar. An event can be a series master (for recurring events), an occurrence, a single instance, or an exception.

Calendar operations

A calendar serves as a container for events. A user can have multiple calendars. In Office 365, each calendar can be assigned to a calendar group.

Calendar group operations

Calendar groups are a way to organize multiple calendars. Users can add multiple calendars into a single calendar group in Outlook or Outlook Web App. This makes it easier for users to quickly view all calendars within the group.

Note

Outlook.com supports only the default calendar group which is accessible by the ../me/calendars shortcut. You cannot delete that calendar group, or create another calendar group.

Using the Calendar REST API

Authentication

Like other Outlook REST API, for every request to the Calendar API, you should include a valid access token. Getting an access token requires you to have registered and identified your app, and obtained the appropriate authorization.

You can find out more about some streamlined registration and authorization options for you. Keep this in mind as you proceed with the specific operations in the Calendar API.

Scopes to access shared calendars

Office 365 and Outlook.com calendars support sharing. A user who created a calendar can share the calendar with other users. The following scopes are required to access a calendar that has been shared with that user:

  • For read access: https://outlook.office.com/calendars.read.shared
  • For read/write access: https://outlook.office.com/calendars.readwrite.shared

Version of API

The Calendar REST API is supported in all versions of the Outlook REST API. The functionality may differ depending on the specific version.

Target user

The Calendar API requests are always performed on behalf of the current user.

See Use the Outlook REST API for more information common to all subsets of the Outlook REST API.

Get events

Get an event collection or an event.

An event body can be in either text or HTML.

You can use the Prefer: outlook.body-content-type header to specify the desired format returned in the Body property in a GET request:

  • Specify Prefer: outlook.body-content-type="text" to get an event body returned in text format.
  • Specify Prefer: outlook.body-content-type="html", or just skip the header, to return the event body in HTML format.

If you specify either header, the response will include the corresponding Preference-Applied header as confirmation:

  • For text format requests: Preference-Applied: outlook.body-content-type="text"
  • For HTML format requests: Preference-Applied: outlook.body-content-type="html"

All operations that get calendar events can use the Prefer: outlook.timezone HTTP header to specify the time zone for start and end times in the response. For example, the following Prefer: outlook.timezone header sets the start and end times in the response to Eastern Standard Time.

Prefer: outlook.timezone="Eastern Standard Time"

If you do not specify the Prefer: outlook.timezone header the start and end times in the response are returned in UTC. See this list for the supported time zone names.

You can use the OriginalStartTimeZone and OriginalEndTimeZone properties on the Event resource to find out the time zone used when the event was created.

Get a calendar view

Minimum required scope

One of the following:

Get the occurrences, exceptions, and single instances of events in a calendar view defined by a time range, from the user's primary calendar (../me/calendarview) or from a different calendar.

GET https://outlook.office.com/api/v2.0/me/calendarview?startDateTime={start_datetime}&endDateTime={end_datetime}
GET https://outlook.office.com/api/v2.0/me/calendars/{calendar_id}/calendarview?startDateTime={start_datetime}&endDateTime={end_datetime}
Required parameter Type Description
Header parameters
Prefer: outlook.timezone The default time zone for events in the response.
URL parameters
calendar_id string The calendar ID, if you're getting a calendar view from a specific calendar.
start_datetime datetimeoffset The date and time when the event starts.
end_datetime datetimeoffset The date and time when the event ends.

Use the Prefer: outlook.timezone header to specify the time zone to use for the event start and end times in the response. If the event was created in a different time zone, the start and end times will be adjusted to the specified time zone.

See this list for the supported time zone names. If the Prefer: outlook.timezone header is not specified, the start and end times are returned in UTC.

Note

By default, each event in the response includes all its properties. Use $select to specify only those properties you need for best performance. The Id property is always returned. See OData query parameters for filtering, sorting, and paging parameters.

For example, get the calendar view for the month of October, returning only the Subject property for each event. Assuming that the Prefer: outlook.timezone header is not included in the request, the time zone will be UTC.

GET https://outlook.office.com/api/v2.0/me/calendarview?startDateTime=2014-10-01T01:00:00&endDateTime=2014-10-31T23:00:00&$select=Subject

Response type

The expanded events within the specified time range.

Get series master and single events

Minimum required scope

One of the following:

Get a collection of series master and single instance events from the user's primary calendar (../me/events) or from a different calendar. To get expanded event instances, you can get the calendar view or get the instances of an event.

GET https://outlook.office.com/api/v2.0/me/events
GET https://outlook.office.com/api/v2.0/me/calendars/{calendar_id}/events
Required parameter Type Description
Header parameters
Prefer: outlook.timezone The default time zone for events in the response.
URL parameters
calendar_id string The calendar ID, if you're getting events from a specific calendar.

Use the Prefer: outlook.timezone header to specify the time zone to use for the event start and end times in the response. If the event was created in a different time zone, the start and end times will be adjusted to the specified time zone.

See this list for the supported time zone names. If the Prefer: outlook.timezone header is not specified, the start and end times are returned in UTC.

Note

Each event in the response includes all its properties. Use $select to specify only those properties you need for best performance. The Id property is always returned. See the next example. See OData query parameters for filtering, sorting, and paging parameters.

The following example shows how to use $select to specify returning only the Subject, Organizer, Start and End properties of each event in the response. Refer to the first sample response in Get an event (REST) for a full list of properties that would be returned for an event if you don't use $select.

Response type

The requested event.

Note

By default, the response includes all the properties of the event. Use $select to specify only those properties you need for best performance. The Id property is always returned. See OData query parameters for filtering, sorting, and paging parameters.

The following example shows how to use $select to specify returning only the Subject, Organizer, Start and End properties of the event.

Sample request

GET https://outlook.office.com/api/v2.0/me/events/AAMkAGI2TG93AAA=?$select=Subject,Organizer,Start,End

            }
        }
    }

Sync events

Minimum required scope

One of the following:

Synchronize and get new, updated, or deleted events in a specified time range from the user's primary calendar (../me/calendarview) or from a different calendar. Such a set of events in a time range is also known as a calendar view. The returned events may include occurrences and exceptions of a recurring series, and single instances.

Synchronizing a calendar view typically requires a round of two or more sync requests, each of which is a GET call. To synchronize a calendar view, use the GET method much like the way you get a calendar view, except that you include certain request headers, and deltaToken or a skipToken when appropriate.

Request headers

  • You must specify the "Prefer: odata.track-changes" header in all sync requests except those that include a skipToken that is returned from a previous sync request. In the first response, look for the Preference-Applied: odata.track-changes header to confirm that the resource supports synchronizing before proceeding. (More information about a skipToken in sample second response data below.)

  • You can specify the "Prefer: odata.maxpagesize={x}" header to indicate the maximum number of events that sync request returns.

Here's a typical round of synchronizing events in a calendar view:

  1. Make the initial GET request with the mandatory Prefer: odata.track-changes header. The initial response to a sync request always returns a deltaToken. (The second and subsequent GET requests differ from the first GET request by including either a deltaToken or a skipToken received in a previous response.)

  2. If the first response returns the Preference-Applied: odata.track-changes header, you can proceed with synchronizing.

    • Make a second GET request. Specify the Prefer: odata.track-changes header and the deltaToken returned from the first GET to determine if there are any additional events. The second request will return additional events, and either a skipToken if there are more events available, or a deltaToken if the last event has been synchronized, in which case you can stop.

    • Continue synchronizing by sending a GET call and including a skipToken that's returned from the previous call. Stop when you get a final response that contains an _@odata.deltaLink_ header with a deltaToken again, which indicates the sync is complete.

Take a look at the syntax for the initial and subsequent calls in a round of sync.

To sync in the default calendar

Initial request:

GET https://outlook.office.com/api/v2.0/{user_context}/calendarview?startDateTime={start_datetime}&endDateTime={end_datetime}

Second request, or first request of a subsequent round:

GET https://outlook.office.com/api/v2.0/{user_context}/calendarview?startDateTime={start_datetime}&endDateTime={end_datetime}&$deltatoken={delta_token}

Third or subsequent request in the same round:

GET https://outlook.office.com/api/v2.0/{user_context}/calendarview?startDateTime={start_datetime}&endDateTime={end_datetime}&$skiptoken={skip_token}

To sync in a specific calendar

Initial request:

GET https://outlook.office.com/api/v2.0/{user_context}/calendars('{calendar_id}')/calendarview?startDateTime={start_datetime}&endDateTime={end_datetime}

Second request, or first request of a subsequent round:

GET https://outlook.office.com/api/v2.0/{user_context}/calendars('{calendar_id}')/calendarview?startDateTime={start_datetime}&endDateTime={end_datetime}&$deltatoken={delta_token}

Third or subsequent request in the same round:

GET https://outlook.office.com/api/v2.0/{user_context}/calendars('{calendar_id}')/calendarview?startDateTime={start_datetime}&endDateTime={end_datetime}&$skiptoken={skip_token}

Parameters

Parameter Type Description
URL parameters
user_context string The user context. You can use the value of 'me' to indicate the context of the current user. You can also use the users/{upn} format where the upn is the user principal name which is typically the user's email address.
calendar_id string The calendar ID, if you're getting a calendar view from a specific calendar.
start_datetime datetimeoffset The date and time when the event starts.
end_datetime datetimeoffset The date and time when the event ends.
delta_token string The deltaToken string returned as part of the value for @odata.deltaLink in the previous sync response.
skip_token string The skipToken string returned as part of the value for @odata.nextLink in the previous sync response.

Note

  • When specifying "Prefer: odata.track-changes" in the initial request, if the response supports sync, the response would include "Preference-applied: odata.track-changes" in the header.
  • If you attempt to sync a resource that isn't supported, or if this is not the initial sync request, you will not see the "Preference-applied" header in the response.
  • You can alter the change time window by changing the startdatetime and enddatetime query parameters.
  • Each event in the response includes all its properties.
  • For a recurring series, a sync response includes the entire event for the recurring master and exception events.
  • Instances of a recurring series are abbreviated and contain only the Start and End properties. You can capture the remainder of the occurrence event information from the recurring master event. See Event resource for reference information.
  • You cannot use the $filter, $count, $select, $skip, $top, and $search query parameters.

Response type

The expanded events and abbreviated events within the specified time range.

Example

The following example shows the initial and second sync requests to synchronize the default calendar for the user. Each request specifies to return only one full event at a time:

  • The initial response returns one event, a deltaLink and deltaToken.
  • The second request uses that deltatoken. The second response returns one event, a nextLink and skipToken.

To complete the sync, use the skipToken returned from the previous sync request until the sync response returns a deltaLink and deltaToken, in which case this round of sync is complete. Save the deltaToken for the next round of sync.

For more information, see Synchronize events in an Outlook calendar view.

Find meeting times

Minimum required scope

One of the following:

Find meeting time suggestions based on organizer and attendee availability, and time or location constraints specified as parameters.

This operation applies to only Office 365 mailboxes (on Azure AD) and not to Microsoft accounts.

POST https://outlook.office.com/api/{version}/me/findmeetingtimes

All the supported parameters are listed below. Depending on your scenario, specify the necessary parameters in the request body of the FindMeetingTimes action.

Parameter Type Description Required?
Attendees Collection(AttendeeBase) Attendees or resources for the meeting. An empty collection causes FindMeetingTimes to look for free time slots for only the organizer. Optional
IsOrganizerOptional Edm.Boolean Specify true if the organizer doesn't necessarily have to attend. The default is false. Optional
LocationConstraint LocationConstraint The organizer's requirements about the meeting location, such as whether a suggestion for a meeting location is required, or there are specific locations only where the meeting can take place. Optional
MaxCandidates Edm.Int32 The maximum number of meeting suggestions to return in the response. Optional
MeetingDuration Edm.Duration The length of the meeting expressed in ISO 8601 format for durations, for example, PT1H represents 1 hour. If no meeting duration is specified, FindMeetingTimes uses the default of 30 minutes. Optional
MinimumAttendeePercentage Edm.Double The minimum required confidence for a time slot to be returned in the response. It is a % value ranging from 0 to 100. Optional
ReturnSuggestionReasons Edm.Boolean Specify true to return a reason for each meeting suggestion in the SuggestionReason property. The default is false to not return that property. Optional
TimeConstraint TimeConstraint Any time restrictions for a meeting, which can include the nature of the meeting (ActivityDomain) and possible meeting time periods (TimeSlots). FindMeetingTimes assumes ActivityDomain as Work if you don't specify this parameter. Optional

FindMeetingTimes checks the free/busy status in the primary calendars of the organizer and attendees. Based on the specified parameters, the action suggests the best possible meeting times. The following table describes the restrictions you can specify in the TimeConstraint parameter.

ActivityDomain value in TimeConstraint Suggestions for meeting times
Work Suggestions are within the user's work hours which are defined in the user’s calendar configuration and can be customized by the user or administrator. The default work hours are Monday to Friday, 8am to 5pm in the time zone setting for the mailbox. This is the default value if no ActivityDomain is specified.
Personal Suggestions are within the user's work hours, and Saturday and Sunday. The default is Monday to Sunday, 8am to 5pm, in the time zone set for the mailbox.
Unrestricted Suggestions can be from all hours of a day, all days of a week.
Unknown Do not use this value as it will be deprecated in the future. Currently behaves the same as Work. Change any existing code to use Work, Personal or Unrestricted as appropriate.

Response type

A MeetingTimeSuggestionsResult which includes a collection of meeting suggestions, each of type MeetingTimeSuggestion, and an EmptySuggestionsReason property.

Each suggestion is defined as a MeetingTimeSuggestion, with attendees having by default a confidence level of 50% to attend, or a specific % that you have specified in the MinimumAttendeePercentage parameter.

By default, each meeting time suggestion is returned in UTC. Apply the Prefer: outlook.timezone request header to have meeting time suggestions retuned in a different time zone, for example:

Prefer: outlook.timezone="Pacific Standard Time"

If FindMeetingTimes cannot return any meeting suggestions, the response would indicate a reason in the EmptySuggestionsReason property. Based on this value, you can better adjust the parameters and call FindMeetingTimes again.

Note

Currently, FindMeetingTimes assumes that any Attendee who is a person (as opposed to a resource) is a required attendee. So, specify Required for a person and Resource for a resource in the corresponding Type property, as part of the Attendees collection parameter.

Each example below calls FindMeetingTimes, and varies by attendee availability, time, and location constraints:

Find time and location to meet with specific attendees

Find time to meet but only some attendees are available

Find time to meet at a pre-determined location, by specifying the following parameters in the request body:

  • Attendees
  • LocationConstraint
  • TimeConstraint
  • MeetingDuration
  • ReturnSuggestionReasons
  • MinimumAttendeePercentage

In this example, only one of the two attendees is available. Each meeting suggestion that FindMeetingTimes returns includes:

  • The availability of each attendee
  • A computed meeting Confidence which is the average % chance of the attendees attending. This value must meet the 60% requirement specified in MinimumAttendeePercentage.
  • A SuggestionHint, since the ReturnSuggestionReasons parameter is set.
