Syncing with Office 365 / Active Directory

To facilitate your account setup, we have created an Integration to allow you to manage part of your Officevibe account through Office 365. With this integration, you can automate the process of adding new employees, removing employees who have left the company and having your Teams synced by having Officevibe sync with your Active Directory. The Daily Sync feature will also remove any employees who are no longer in your Office365 account, from your Officevibe account. 

With the Office365 integration, you can: 

  • Add & Remove Employees
  • Synchronize your Teams
  • Setup Single Sign-On for easy login
  • Officevibe notifications through Microsoft Teams

Note: The integration must be set up by an Administrator of your Officevibe account.

 

1. Connect with Office 365

Go into the Integrations section, and to the right of Office 365 under the Provisioning tab, click on the Configure button. You will then log in to Office 365. You will then be asked to enter your credentials and allow Officevibe to perform certain actions.

Note: If the login is not working, please review your permissions as you must be an admin of the Office 365 account.

2. Invite Teams from Office 365

You can either choose to invite everyone who is in Office 365 to Officevibe or select specific Office 365 Teams.

3. Link Officevibe Teams with Office 365 Teams (optional)

If you create Teams in Officevibe, you can then map them to your existing Office 365 Teams so new employees can automatically be added to the appropriate Officevibe Teams and if a member is removed in Office 365, they will then be removed from Officevibe Teams. Enter the O365 Team name in the box in order to proceed. 

Note: You must first create your Officevibe Teams via your Organization Settings - Teams - click the blue Create Team button and then come to this page (under Integrations) to map them out.

4. Turn on the Daily Sync 

You're now all set to turn on the Daily Sync. To do so, you will click on the Save & Activate button at the bottom. The sync will then run the next day. 

Note: If you prefer to activate the sync right away without waiting for it to run, you are able to manually push the sync by clicking on the Start Synchronization button. This activation results in invitations being sent to those you set up in the sync.

Note: A sync can always be deactivated by clicking on the View Settings button and selecting the Deactivate button at the bottom.

 

5. Office 365 Single Sign-On (optional)

If you wish for your employees to be able to click on the Office 365 button when logging in to be able to automatically log in with their O365 credentials, you are able to activate Single Sign-On. If you have already logged in to your Office 365 account, you will simply click on the Single Sign-on tab and the Activate button. As long as the emails match in Officevibe and O365, the employees can log in using the SSO button.

Note: Your employees will still be able to log in manually even if the SSO option is set up.

All members of your account will have to make sure to click on the Office 365 logo below to log in, for as long as your SSO with O365 is Activated.
