Hello out there,

I'm trying to use some of the Sharepoint List Tasks, but no matter what I try I cannot get the connection to work so I can choose a List - I keep getting the error message: "Error retrieviving items: Cannot contact site at the specified URL xxxxxxx"
Its Sharepoint Online / Office365 and _not_ on-premise.

I've attached the settings I've used in the connection.
I've tried different versions of the Server Address:
https://mydomain.sharepoint.com 
https://mydomain.sharepoint.com/ 
https://mydomain.sharepoint.com/sites 
https://mydomain.sharepoint.com/sites/ 
https://mydomain.sharepoint.com/sites/sitename 
https://mydomain.sharepoint.com/sites/sitename/ 

If I just go to https://mydomain.sharepoint.com  and login using the same username/password as I enter in my connection details, I login fine - but not through VisualCron...

Anyone has any ideas ?
I'm getting desperate :-)

Dave, I'm having the exact same issue. Did you ever get this resolved?

Please test with the latest build. If it still does not work then send email to support@visualcron.com with screenshots of the settings and error.

You might try creating an App Password in SharePoint that you can use for your VC connection. That will bypass two-factor authentication (if you're using it), plus it won't change if you change your main account password.

Using 8.4.1
Trying to connect to SharepointOnline and no matter what format I use (same as OP), I keep getting:
Exception in Task: Cannot contact site at the specified URL https://COMPANY.sharepoint.com/sites/SUBSITE .
The documentation around this feature is lacking
Any assistance?
