Mac users, if you previously installed the Zoom plugin in Outlook, in order to continue scheduling Zoom meetings directly from Outlook, you must download and install the Zoom for Outlook add-in (versus the plug-in) by Saturday, May 1, 2021.
As of May 1, the plug-in will not load when you attempt to schedule or start meetings. While it is recommended that you download and install the add-in for the same ease of experience, you can also schedule Zoom meetings from Zoom’s Web Portal.
To install the Zoom for Outlook add-in, follow these steps:
- In the Outlook for Mac Home ribbon, click on Get Add-Ins (or Store if running an older version of Outlook for Mac).
- Search for Zoom for Outlook.
- Click Get It Now.
- If prompted, enter your Valencia email address and password.
How do I know if I have the plug-in or add-in installed?
If your ribbon menu looks like this, you have the plug-in installed and should install the add-in.
If it looks like this, you already have the add-in installed:
You do not need to uninstall the former plug-in, as once the change takes effect, Outlook will ignore and not load the plug-in.
