Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express, Release 2.x -- Configuring the Client Installation File for the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express Plug-In for Microsoft Outlook
As the system administrator, you configure the client installation file that installs the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express plug-in for Microsoft Outlook on end-user systems so that the end users do not have to perform the configuration themselves after installation. If you do not configure the client installation file, an unconfigured client installation file is automatically created and is available for end users to download from the End-User Interface.
The following are requirements for client installation:
- Install the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express plug-in for Microsoft Outlook on the PCs of all Microsoft Outlook end users that are connected to your Microsoft Exchange Server. If a Microsoft Outlook end user does not have the plug-in installed when the user clicks the MeetingPlace tab in a received meeting notification, that user may see an error. Users who are not connected to the Microsoft Exchange Server do not see the MeetingPlace tab.
- If delegates will use Microsoft Outlook to schedule Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express meetings on behalf of other users, each delegate and each person on whose behalf meetings are scheduled must install the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express plug-in for Microsoft Outlook.
Provide your end users with the information they need to correctly configure the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express plug-in for Microsoft Outlook. For details, see the User Guide for Microsoft Outlook Operating with Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express Release 2.x.
