Deploy Integration with Microsoft for Enterprise as an Administrator

As an administrator in a large enterprise, you can deploy 8x8 integration with Microsoft throughout your company remotely by using a deployment tool.

Important: In order for integration with Microsoft to function, ensure that you are using a version that is compatible with your current version of the Virtual Office desktop app:
-For version 6 of the Virtual Office desktop app, download the respective plug-ins for meetings with Outlook, for calling with Outlook, and for calling with Skype for Business.
-For version 5 of the Virtual Office desktop app, download version 5.0.10 of the Microsoft Integration plug-in, which includes meetings and calling with Outlook, and calling with Skype for Business.

Version Compatibility

Compatibility between the Outlook Virtual Office Meetings plug-in and the Virtual Office desktop app is as follows:

Outlook Virtual Office Meetings plug-in version Virtual Office desktop app version
6.0 6.x, and all currently-active versions of 5.x
