Adding the Cisco Webex Meeting Scheduler to Office 365 - Mac

Cisco Webex Meetings Scheduler for Microsoft Office 365 makes it easy for you to schedule, start, and join Webex meetings and Personal Room meetings directly from Microsoft Outlook. When it’s time to join, everyone can click the link in the calendar invitation or they can join from a video system or phone.

Please note: If you are currently using the Cisco WebEx Productivity Tools with the Outlook desktop application, please follow the directions at How Do I Uninstall Webex Productivity Tools? before adding the Cisco Webex Meeting Scheduler. Meetings created with the Cisco Webex Productivity Tools cannot be edited after switching to the Cisco Webex Meeting Scheduler add-in. If you need to modify existing meetings, please do so in the Outlook Desktop application and prepare to transition to the Cisco Webex Meeting Scheduler.

If you have any questions or are prompted to give admin credentials during the install please open a workorder and a SAS Tech will assist you.

You have to view the full details of the meeting in order to view the Webex button. It won't show up in the small window that pops up when you create a meeting. The Webex meeting will be adjusted to match the time and date set by the calendar event. The details will be in the notes for the meeting and the title of the mee taken from the title you put on the calendar appointment. If you edit the event in the future, the Webex meeting will be updated correspondingly. After the information has been added to the calendar invite, you can click on the Webex icon and choose Webex Preferences to change the settings for that meeting. The most important setting that you're likely to use is: "Let anyone with a host account on this sNew Meeting Pagting." This will allow the meeting to start even if the host hasn't joined the meeting yet.
