Why do we need access to Microsoft Graph-Api?


To see which users are in the company. On the one hand all users can be listed in timeout for an administrator and on the other hand the groups from Office 365 can be used for the administration of vacation accounts.


Which Office 365 permissions do we need and why?


Sign in and read user profile - Access user's data anytime


The login for timeout is controlled via Office 365. Timeout displays the name of the user and the Office 365 profile picture. This makes it clear to the user with which account he is logged on or to the administrator or supervisor which user they are editing. This information is only displayed to registered users. The role of the user in Office 365 is also displayed. Office administrators can assign new rights to users in timeout for timeout. In this way, superiors can be defined.


Administrators can see each user's profile. Superiors can see the profile of a user for whom they manage a group in Office 365.


Read directory data


In Timeout, the groups of Office 365 of a company are loaded. This includes the superiors, as well as the group members. Timeout offers the possibility to manage the users according to these groups and to define new superiors for timeout. In Timeout, leave requests are processed by a supervisor. To find out which supervisor does this, access to the roles in a directory is required.


Read and write calendars in all mailboxes


If a vacation request is timed out, an entry is saved in the Office 365 calendar of the respective user. This request is noted as an all-day free appointment. Depending on the type of request, the appointment is displayed as free or booked.


This authorization allows you to read and write calendar entries for the logged on user, as well as calendar entries that other users in the organization have released for the logged on user. Microsoft makes no distinction between reading and writing calendar entries. The calendar is not read at any point in the timeout. Only calendar entries are added. Timeout therefore has access to the calendar of each user of the company and only uses it to add calendar entries.


What data is stored?


- The name and email address of the Office 365 account.

- Applications with their duration, start and end date, as well as the type and the user who submitted the application.

- Leave accounts with the year, the days taken, the days available and the total number of days that can be used for the year.

- The initial value for a user's vacation days

- A company's domain name, the country and state, the year of the current vacation account used, the default number of vacation days for the company, and the ability to take half a day as a vacation.

- Enterprise-specific holidays with date and name


Where is the data stored?


The data is stored in a Microsoft Azure SQL database. This is hosted in Azure West Europe.


In what form do we share or disclose data?


Data is only processed within a corporate context (tenant) and is not accessible to users of other tenants. The data will not be passed on to third parties.


Visibility of data within the company


Applications from members of the same team can be viewed for coordination within the company. Also timeout supervisors offers the possibility to view the vacation account of their employees, as well as statistics about all applications and vacation accounts created in the company.
