2. Under Manage add-ins, click the "+" button, then click "Add from the Office Store".
3. In a separate browser tab, you will be directed to the Office Store. Search for Zoom and install the Zoom for Outlook plugin. You may need to sign in using your UNID@umail.utah.edu address. Click "Yes" and "Install" when prompted.
Zoom will now show up on your add-ins list.
4. Now that the Zoom plugin is installed, open your Outlook calendar. When you schedule a new meeting, you will see two Zoom buttons in the top, right corner of the ribbon. Click "Add a Zoom Meeting" to automatically generate a new Zoom meeting that will be added to your calendar invite. Use the Settings button to adjust settings for the meeting.
