Integrate Great Question and Microsoft

Add Microsoft if you are using a Microsoft product to track your busy schedule, send email, or both.

Integrating Microsoft allows you to schedule your interviews within Great Question and have that information shared directly to your calendar, as well as view current events to help prevent overbooking.

More on using the Great Question Scheduler here.
