NextGen UI - MS Outlook Integration

Solved! Jump to solution

I'm currently working on a Concur Expense implementation due to go live in early 2019. With the planned mandatory transition to NextGen being March 2019 we'd like to go-live with NextGen and therefore need to consider this in our current testing and change management activities. The MS Outlook integration was a key selling point that has been used during the early engagements with our end-user community and therefore something we'll need to ensure is available - is there a proposed delivery date to have this feature in the NextGen UI ahead of the mandatory transition date?

Thanks.

Hi @DH,

Are you referencing the Attendees import from Outlook? If so, it is currently on the list of enhancements that is coming in the full release, but is not yet available in the Preview Period. There is a document Concur maintains showing what is coming and what has been released so far:

This feature's on page 3. Is that what you were looking for?

Hi Josh,

Yes, that's perfect - really just wanted to be sure that the attendees import from Outlook was going to be available in the NextGen UI on full release around our scheduled go-live.

It has been one of our key sells as it fits really well with some of the working pratices for key users. Having said that, the upload via MS Excel might be the go-to attendee option when available.

Thanks for the quick response.

Cheers,
David

I understand that the transition is now going to be phased in during 2019.  They do not have a new schedule as of yet, but the transition date is no longer March 2019.

 

Thanks
