How the Outlook Add-in Works
With Envoy's Outlook add-in, Employees can create and send invites to external guests from through their outlook calendar.
Employees with the Envoy add-in can also schedule themselves for a day in the office and book a desk directly from Outlook!
Step 1: Install the Outlook add-in
Install the add-in individually
In your Outlook inbox, look for “Get Add-ins” in the toolbar.
In the new window that opens, search for “Envoy” in the top right corner.
Click “Add” on the Envoy for Outlook add-in.
Install the add-in globally (for O365 admins only)
Visit the following Microsoft App source link
Click “GET IT NOW”
This will take you to the 0365 admin portal to install company-wide
Install the add-in globally without access to Microsoft Store
If you do not have the Microsoft Store enabled, you can install the Outlook Add-in by using our Centralized deployment approach. When asked, choose "I have a URL for the Manifest file" and insert the following URL: https://outlook-add-in.envoy.com/assets/manifests/manifest-production.xml.
Creating an invite through Envoy using Outlook Calendar add-in
Create calendar event & Envoy invites for attendees
Open your calendar that’s associated with your work email.
Create an event as you normally would—schedule the date, time, event name, etc.
Add your attendees.
You will see the add-in when you click “New meeting” in Outlook.
Log in with the credentials you use with Envoy.
Then, select your location and visitor type pre-populated from the drop-down.
Note, the date and time pre-populated from the meeting invite.
Next, fill in your host, and choose to send an invite email from Envoy.
Finally, select “Send and save invite details to outlook"
Employee Scheduling and Desk Booking
