Schedule an online meeting

You can use Lync for Mac together with Outlook to schedule online meetings with your contacts.

For virtual meetings with audio or video calls, you must have a webcam, a microphone, and either speakers or headphones. If your computer does not have a built-in webcam and microphone, you can purchase a Mac-compatible device to attach to your computer. To learn about how to set up these devices, see Mac Help.

 Note   Delegates cannot create or modify an existing Online Meeting in Outlook on behalf of the principal.
