Specifically highlighted is the code for middleware (for authentication), the GraphCalendarClient, injection and for rendering a person’s calendar events for a specified date range and time zone.  Step-by-step details in Learn module.   

  • Latest on Microsoft Bookings API on Microsoft Graph – Bookings is an appointment scheduling app that integrates with Outlook calendars and with Teams online meetings.  Bookings allows owner to publish their calendar to the outside world for purposes of allowing others to book appointments with owner.  Available for 3 years already, Booking APIs are now available in Graph on v1.0 endpoint.  Hear about use cases, object entities, key operations, permissions, newest APIs and roadmap.
