Live sync of QuickBase calendar app to Outlook calendar?

  • 1.  Live sync of QuickBase calendar app to Outlook calendar?

    Posted 28 days ago
    • Background:  we have a QB app in which we store events.  Those events are posted in a QB calendar report.  It contains many pieces of info about each event in the event record – much more than we can do in Outlook.  However, most everyone here still manages daily attendance to any event by Outlook.  That is not up to change.  Users in a large community can see this calendar and select events they need to attend. 
    • Currently, users who wish to attend the event can download the ICS file of the event on Quick Base and export that instance to Outlook.  However that does not sync to later updates made in Quick Base.  We need a live sync between the Quick Base events and Outlook events.  If the event needs to change, we need the automatic live sync to change it/update it on the Outlook calendar of the attendees who signed up and send out a notification that this has occurred.  
    Do we have any solutions, native or third party, that can do the second bullet above?  This is the only functionality we currently lack.  

    I actually think it would be nice if we could sync in the other direction, if events change in Outlook, they sync to the QB app too, but not sure that's as critical.  

    Thanks!

    Thanks, Mark - hoping they respond in this thread with an answer if their solution does this specific functionality.  I can't tell from the website...
