Revenue Grid Scheduler API Endpoints

For users of the Email Sidebar on:

 

10 min read

 

RG Email Sidebar includes a set of special API endpoints to enable various apps and services to take an advantage of its meeting scheduling capabilities. Provided endpoints are intended for meeting scheduling scenarios:

  • Parse own and colleagues’ actual calendar availability data from their MS Outlook calendars
  • Easily perform meetings scheduling in MS Outlook and Salesforce calendars by the means of API calls and update scheduled meetings

 

Overview

Scheduler API is designed for server-to-server integrations and can perform meeting scheduling/data retrieval across all users in a customer’s organization. Any Meeting Organizer referenced by this API should be a valid Revenue Inbox user with properly configured Office 365 or MS Exchange connectivity. The feature is compatible with MS Graph and allows MS Teams integration through it. It is scalable to accommodate customer-specified volumes of API calls.
For internal (in-org) users, the API can be used to schedule meetings on users’ behalf or retrieve their calendar availability spans.
External (out of org) contacts may only be referenced as attendees for the meetings scheduled over this API.

 

API Authorization

Scheduler API supports 3 authorization methods:

  • (Legacy approach, disabled by default) Via Administrator user login/password
  • (Recommended) OAuth 2.0 Refresh token flow
  • (Single tenant deployments only) HMAC custom authentication

 

All date and time properties in the requests and responses are set in the ISO 8601 standard: YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ssZ

All input and output dates and times are set in GMT time zone.

 

 

RG Scheduler API Endpoints

 

Endpoint 1: Schedule a Meeting in Outlook Calendar

This API allows the caller to create meetings on behalf of a certain internal organizer and invite one or multiple internal (in-org) or external attendees. The meeting invite will be sent out to all listed attendees; the requested slot will be reserved as Busy for all participants.

The attendees may accept, decline, or forward a meeting invite to additional attendees. These details can later be read over the meeting data retrieval API (Endpoint 4).
