The Qlik Outlook 365 Connector enables you to access and fetch data from your Outlook 365 account and load it directly into your Qlik Sense app.
Ways to access your data
To access your Outlook 365 data, you need to authenticate the connector with your Outlook 365 account credentials. After you create a connection, select Outlook 365 as your data source, select the prompt/consent level, and select Authenticate. You are redirected to an Outlook 365 login page. Log in with your credentials to retrieve an authentication code, and enter it into the connector.

Loading data from tables
After you authenticate the connector with your account credentials, use the tables to fetch your data. Below are use cases for some of the available tables:
|MyProfile||Data load editor||Fetches the currently authenticated user's Outlook 365 profile information.|
|MailFolders||Data manager and Data load editor||Fetches a list of folders in a user's mailbox.|
|Data manager and Data load editor||Fetches a list of messages from Outlook mail, with optional search and filter queries.|
|Attachments||Data load editor||Fetches the properties and relationships of any attachments, attached to the specified event/message ID.|
|Calendars||Data load editor||Fetches a list of events in a calendar. The list contains single instance meetings and series masters.|
|GetAttachmentAsBinary||Data load editor||Fetches attachments as binary.|
|EventsForCalendar||Data load editor||Retrieve a list of events in a calendar. The list contains single instance meetings and series masters. If you do not enter a calendar ID it will retrieve events for your own calendar.|
|AllEvents||Data load editor||Retrieve a list of all events from all calendars that the logged in user can access.|
|Contacts||Data load editor||Fetches a list of contacts.|
|Users||Data load editor||Fetches a list of users.|
To select and load data from a table, enter the required table parameters and click Preview data. Required parameters are marked with an asterisk (*). The table fields are displayed under the Data preview tab. You can select fields individually by selecting the box beside each field name. Select Insert script after you have made your selection.

Reference - Outlook 365 developer documentation
You can refer to the Outlook 365 documentation to learn more about the requirements and restrictions imposed by the Web API.
You receive an error message that you have reached the API rate limit
You have exceeded the API limits that are imposed by the Outlook 365 API.
To reduce the impact of reaching the API rate limits, develop your app with the following in mind:
- Extract only the data you need.
- Reload one Outlook 365-based application at a time.
- Ensure that loops in your script that make API calls will not result in infinite loops.
