How to schedule a call from Outlook

XMReality provides a Microsoft Outlook add-in that allows you to schedule an XMReality session from your Outlook calendar.

XMReality lets you create and share a call link for either ad hoc or planned sessions. Creating a link can be done from inside XMReality's apps, but also from inside Microsoft Outlook, using the XMReality Outlook add-in.

If you change the Outlook calendar meeting time or title, you should create a new XMReality link (press Remove link, and then Add XMReality link again). If you don't, the link will still work but the title and/or start-time will be incorrect.

 

Note, if you're instead using the XMReality desktop app to schedule a call, you can create either a Microsoft Outlook or Google Calendar invite with one click. Learn how to do it in How to schedule a call in XMReality.
