Not all the features available for scheduling meetings on your Webex site are available in the Cisco Webex Meetings desktop app. The integration to Microsoft Outlook does not support all the recurrence options that are available in Microsoft Outlook, for more information see the tables below.

In any meeting invitations that you send from Microsoft Outlook, the meeting start time appears in the time zone that is set on your computer, and may not match the time zone preferences you have set on your Webex site.

1

From the Home ribbon in Microsoft Outlook, select Schedule Meeting.

In the drop-down list, choose from the following:

  • Schedule Webex MeetingWebex meetings are the standard meeting choice.
  • Schedule Personal Room Meeting–Personal Rooms are your own virtual conference room. It’s always available and you don’t have to book it.
  • Schedule Personal Conference Meeting–Personal Conference meetings are for meetings using telephony service provider (TSP) audio.
3

Select To and choose who you want to invite to your meeting.


 

Only people who receive the meeting invitation directly from the host will have the meeting appear in their Webex site or Webex Meetings mobile app calendars. Forwarded invitations, or meeting details copied and pasted and sent in emails, will not be listed in the recipients' calendars.

Once you schedule a meeting using the integration to Microsoft Outlook, you can use Microsoft Outlook to edit it at any time. You can change the start time, specify a new password, choose a different audio connection option, and more.

When you edit a scheduled meeting an updated email invitation is sent to the invitees and the meeting information on your Webex site is updated.

If you schedule a meeting using the integration to Microsoft Outlook, you can cancel the meeting in Microsoft Outlook at any time.


  • If you cancel a Webex meeting using your Webex site, your changes will not show in Microsoft Outlook.

  • If you save the meeting or appointment after canceling your meeting and have not added another Webex meeting, Personal Room meeting, or Personal Conference meeting, it becomes a regular Microsoft Outlook meeting with no Webex information.
