With the Lucid Meetings Outlook Add-in, you can schedule and update meetings in Lucid directly from your Microsoft Outlook calendar. You must have Room Manager access in at least one Lucid meeting room to use this feature.
About this Integration
When you use the Lucid Meetings Outlook add-in, you can schedule Lucid Meetings from the task pane in your Outlook calendar. These fields from Outlook are used for the meeting in Lucid:
- Meeting name
- Attendees (based on email address)
- Date and time
- Repeat settings
You select the room and meeting template to use within the task pane of the add-in.
To Install the Outlook Add-in:
Select the "Get Add-ins" icon in Outlook, go to "My add-ins," and choose "+ Add a custom add-in", then "Add from URL...". Enter this URL for the add-in's manifest file:
To Schedule a Lucid Meeting from Outlook:

To Update a Lucid Meeting from Your Outlook Calendar:

Note that the add-in does not establish automatic updates between Outlook and Lucid Meetings. If you modify a meeting in Outlook, you must click the "Update Lucid" button to transmit the changes to Lucid. If you make changes in Lucid, they will not be transmitted to Outlook. (We plan to add automatic updates in a future version.)
