GoTo Meeting for Microsoft Outlook

    GoTo Meeting offers two integrations for the Microsoft Outlook environment. You can use the Office 365 Outlook Add-In or the Microsoft Outlook Plugin to seamlessly schedule, manage, and join upcoming meetings directly from your Outlook calendar.

    Attention: The Office 365 Add-In and Outlook plugin will be discontinued in April 2022. We recommend switching to the GoTo for Outlook.

    Office 365 Outlook Add-In

    It is highly recommended that you only schedule, update and/or remove meetings in Outlook and click Update meeting to push changes to GoTo Meeting.

    Outlook Plugin

    If you are an IT admin and your company is standardized on Outlook and GoTo Meeting, you can configure a script and automatically install and update users' machines. See below.
    Notice: The GoTo Meeting Outlook plugin will be discontinued on July 31, 2022. We encourage you to switch to the GoTo for Outlook integration.
    Important: The GoTo Meeting Outlook plugin works on local versions of Outlook but not on mobile devices or web versions. If you wish to use the plugin, it is recommended that you only schedule, update and/or cancel meetings in Outlook. This is because while all changes you make in the plugin are automatically reflected in the web portal, changes made in the web portal are not duplicated in the Outlook plugin. In addition, any rescheduling of meetings while in Outlook offline mode will not appear on the web.
