LinkPoint TimeScout integrates directly with Office 365 calendars to provide easy authentication and meeting management. First time users will need to set up the TimeScout feature via the LinkPoint Connect Side Panel and web configuration. The set up wizard guides users through adding the account, selecting a calendar, and setting availability.
Warning: LinkPoint TimeScout only supports integration with Office 365 accounts. LinkPoint Connect is backward compatible with Outlook 2010 and on.
Tip: You will only need to enable TimeScout via the Side Panel once to get started.
