Webex - How to Schedule with Webex Scheduler for Microsoft Outlook

The Webex Scheduler lets Microsoft 365 users schedule Webex meetings or Webex Personal Room meetings directly from Microsoft Outlook, in any browser. The calendar invite shows the Webex meeting details, including a link to join the meeting.

Set your Webex Site in Outlook

Before you can schedule a meeting using the Webex Scheduler, you must specify the Webex site to use with your account.

If you're using Outlook for desktop, in the Cisco Webex group on the ribbon, select Add Webex Meeting.

If you're using Outlook on the web, select New event > Cisco Webex Scheduler  > Add Webex Meeting.


 

To see this option, you or your administrator must have added the Webex Scheduler add-in and your Webex site administrator must have configured the Webex Scheduler for Microsoft 365.

The Welcome screen appears.

Select Get Started.
