Common Problems with Office 365

I can't connect my account#

First, make sure you can properly log into https://outlook.office365.com/. Usually, that means you must have an Office 365 Business or Office 365 Enterprise account in order to use Zapier. You won't be able to connect to a personal or education account.

These accounts do not work:

  • Outlook.com accounts.
  • Office Home accounts.
  • Live.com or other personal Microsoft accounts.

If you're getting and error that says The user or administrator has not consented to use the application with ID 'XXXXX', this means that your Microsoft account doesn't have the right permissions to connect to Zapier. You'll need to have your Office 365 administrator grant you access to connect to third parties.

My zaps keep getting turned off#

Microsoft automatically expires their refresh token (what we use to connect to them) if any of the following occur:

  • You change or reset your password
  • You don't use the token for 14 days
  • It's been 90 days

Unfortunately, there is no way around these limitations. When your token expires, you will need to reconnect your account to Zapier. You can do that by going to the Connected Accounts page and clicking the reconnect button next to Office365, then typing in your credentials.
