Webex can be integrated with your Outlook calendar by installing the Meetings app from the downloads page . The app runs on your desktop and is also an easy eay to schedule and host meetings.

Click the cog icon amd from the Preferences menu select Integrations choose which Office applications are to integrate the app.

In the Account  option ensure that the site URL is edinburghnapier.webex.com .

Example 1: Outlook

Meet Now immediately starts a Webex meeting without the need to schedule. Schedule Meeting starts an Outlook Calendar invitation to embed a Webex meeting link.

Share This File prompts for a colleague’s email address and then shares the file within Webex. The Webex option provides options to start an instantmeeting or to schedule a meeting.
