When you start Microsoft Outlook, it will automatically check your Snapforce Calendar for updates and download the changes. If you keep Outlook open, it will periodically check for and download updates. (Snapforce Calendar does not tell Outlook how often to check for updates.)

NOTE: Changes you make in Outlook aren’t sent to your Snapforce Calendar. To update the calendar you will want to make the changes in Snapforce so it pushed over to Outlook.
