Integration Descriptions


Microsoft Outlook for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Integration

There are two types of Microsoft Outlook for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace integration:

  • Front-end integration is done through the Microsoft Outlook plug-in. It enables end users to schedule and attend Cisco Unified MeetingPlace meetings by using their Microsoft Outlook clients, as well as to receive e-mail notifications for meetings to which they have been invited. The plug-in doesn’t interact with Microsoft Exchange server directly.
  • Back-end integration is done through the Notification module as part of the Application Server, which interacts with the Microsoft Exchange server directly. Users can schedule Cisco Unified MeetingPlace meetings from the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Server. The user profiles for invitees specify Microsoft Exchange as the email type.

The Microsoft Outlook for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace back-end integration is automatically installed as part of the Application Server installation. Front-end integration requires the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Outlook plug-in to be installed on Microsoft Outlook clients.

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace PhoneView offers users a convenient way to join meetings, start reservationless meetings, view a list of upcoming meetings, and view meeting details. After joining a meeting, a user can perform in-meeting operations such as locking the meeting, recording the meeting, viewing a list of participants, and muting or ejecting participants.
