With Robin's Office 365 Add-In, you can bring space search and extra office context into Office 365 calendars without having to leave Outlook.

If the event already has conference rooms invited, Robin will show details about the space automatically.

How to download

Robin's Office 365 Add-In is available via the Office Store directory. Once installed by an administrator, it will appear as an option in both Outlook's desktop and web apps.

Manual Install

Can't use the Office Store? To install the add in via a manifest instead, use https://extensions.robinpowered.com/office/manifest.xml

If you run a hybrid environment and want to see if you can install the add in for your on-premise server as well, via the manifest file linked above. Just make sure your system supports the requirements from Microsoft.

Manage user access to plugins

Add-Ins are available to all users on your Office 365 account by default, or individual groups if your administrators have enabled more specific permissions. This is not a setting apps (Robin included) can manage directly for you. If you only want a subset of your users to have access to Robin's (or any other) Add-In, you'll need to have an admin adjust permissions within Office 365 accordingly.

A few things the Outlook extension is good at:

  • "When's the next time this conference room is available?"
  • "Will I have a whiteboard available in this afternoon's meeting?"
  • "Are there any other spaces with video conferencing free right now?"

For more advanced tasks, the plugin also give a direct path to continue in Robin's web (and mobile) apps. Have something else you'd like to see the plugin bring into your calendars? We'd love to hear about it.
