Important: To schedule an online meeting, you need Outlook for Mac 2011 14.1.3 update or later and Lync for Mac. To check to see if you need to get the latest version of Outlook, on the Help menu, click Check for Updates, click Manually, and then Check for Updates.

You can use Outlook together with Lync for Mac to schedule online meetings with your contacts.

For virtual meetings with audio or video calls, you must have a webcam, a microphone, and either speakers or headphones. If your computer does not have a built-in webcam and microphone, you can purchase a Mac-compatible device to attach to your computer. To learn about how to set up these devices, see Mac Help.
