Outlook on Android

Hi,
I have an Android phone (LG Q7/Android 8.1)on which Outlook is installed, but there seems to be no opportunity to interact with Generalsync.
Any suggestions?

From a short web search, it seems as if the Outlook App handles all calendars, contacts and emails exclusively through the cloud. Your phone thus needs to send your credentials to Microsoft to permit Microsoft to gather your data on their servers. This privacy and security nightmare is contrary to the idea of GeneralSync, which tries to keep your data away from the cloud – and thus incompatible. Outlook does not seem to provide a standard-compliant way to directly access regular Android calendars or address books.

If you wish to use a cloud-only service like the Outlook App, I'm afraid GeneralSync is not the right choice for you.
