FindTime is an Outlook add-in for scheduling meetings. The organizer can send multiple time options through FindTime and minimize the back-and-forth emails in scheduling.

Prerequisites for installing FindTime

FindTime can currently only be installed on a Microsoft 365 Apps for business or enterprise account that includes Exchange Online. FindTime is currently supported for GCC tenants, excluding GCC High.

It can be used with Outlook for Windows, Outlook for Mac, and Outlook on the web. If you use Outlook 2013 or 2016, or Outlook for Mac 2016 or 2019, you will be asked to sign in every time you create a FindTime poll.

For Outlook 2013 & 2016 you'll need to install the latest security, and non-security, MSP files for outlook-x.none, mso-x.none, and osfclient-x.none. You can find those at these links:

To enable FindTime on Outlook for Mac, first install the add-in on Outlook on the Web. Then FindTime should automatically appear in Outlook for Mac. FindTime in Outlook for Mac will be fully supported later this year.
