With Lync for Mac, you can join a scheduled online meeting with colleagues and clients from down the hall or across the world without leaving your desk.

For online 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.

Join a conference call

You can access your scheduled conference invite from Outlook for Mac 2011.

  1. In Outlook Calendar, double-click the conference call invite.

  2. In the meeting message, click Join online meeting.

Note: If you know the online meeting URL, you can also join the meeting directly from Lync. In the Conversation menu, click Join Online Meeting by URL. In the URL box, enter the meeting URL.
