Install the GMSO Meeting add-in

The GMSO Meeting add-in creates a meeting invitation with a link to your Skype meeting, the conference ID (participant passcode), and a list of GlobalMeet dial-in numbers. Instead of downloading a “setup” program and installing it on your computer, you enable the add-in via a definition file (called a manifest) by following these instructions.

Copy the add-in URL to the clipboard, and then open Outlook and follow instructions for your version of Outlook.
