The StarLeaf Outlook Add-in for Exchange Server allows Outlook users in an organization to schedule video meetings directly from their Outlook client.

Installing the add-in on your Windows computer allows you to schedule meetings from Outlook. You can invite any other StarLeaf user or meeting room system to your meeting. You can also invite anyone else and they can join the meeting from their browser or by using their own video conferencing system or their phone. The meeting invitation is pre-populated with the correct dial-in details for your video meeting.

Scheduling a StarLeaf video meeting via the Outlook add-in automatically creates a scheduled conference on the StarLeaf Cloud. The scheduled meeting is visible, but not editable, on the StarLeaf Portal.

If you have not already got a StarLeaf account, either ask your administrator to create one or download the StarLeaf app and sign up.

The StarLeaf Outlook Add-in supports Microsoft Outlook 2010, 2013, and 2016.
