Company administrators can synchronize all employee's Exchange Calendar data with Lark Calendar. Once synchronized, employees can view and edit their Exchange Calendar on Lark, modifying existing events or creating new ones. All changes will be synced to their Exchange Calendar, and all changes made in Exchange Calendar will be synced to Lark as well.
Note: This feature is not available for tenants on private clouds.
- 1.Add Employee Email Information
Before you import Exchange account information, please go to Lark Admin - Organization - Member and Department and add employees’ Lark email account information, which should be consistent with the Exchange account information, to trigger automatch. You can add account information one by one, or click Batch Import/Export to update employees’ email account information in a unified manner.
If you want to modify the information of a specific employee, click Add Members and enter the employee’s email address. Alternatively, you can complete the email information on the details page of an added employee.

After successful sync
After the administrator completes the steps above and sync calendars successfully, employees will see their Exchange Calendar accounts on Lark Calendar sidebar, and they can directly check Exchange event details including guests, locations and meeting rooms. Employees can also edit or create new Exchange events in Lark. All updated information will be synced to the respective Exchange Calendar, and vice versa.
Q: Will all events in Lark Calendar be synced to Exchange Calendar?
A: No. Event information will be synced to Exchange Calendar only when an employee creates or edits the event in their Lark Exchange Calendar account. Events created in Lark account won't be synced to Exchange Calendar.
Q: If I set the email administrator account to “administrator”, will it cause a failure in administrator account name and password verification?
A: Duplication of account name may lead to a verification failure. You can create an administrator account not named “administrator” in Exchange email configuration and log in using the account. Make sure the new administrator account is granted the permission for impersonation. For detailed procedure, see Configure administrator account.
Q: I failed to import some members’ calendars. For example, the import progress was always 99%. How can I view the cause for the import failure?
A: As a company administrator, you can download Exchange accounts with import errors and Download Import Details on the import page to view import details and the causes for failures.
Q: After I changed the administrator account and imported user calendars, why did the system prompt that the user calendars had been imported?
A: As a company administrator, you need to remove the link to the original administrator account first to remove the imported calendars. Then you can use the link to the new administrator account to re-import the calendars of all members.
