Choosing the right Outlook Add-in

The Amazon Chime Add-In for Outlook on Windows and the Amazon Chime Add-In for Outlook offer the same scheduling features, but support different types of users. For Office 365 subscribers, the Amazon Chime Add-In for Outlook is the best and only choice. Windows users with an on-premises Exchange server running Exchange Server 2010 or older, those using Outlook 2010, or who do not have permissions to install the Amazon Chime Add-in for Outlook should opt for the Amazon Chime Add-in for Outlook on Windows.

The Amazon Chime Add-In for Outlook supports Outlook across different platforms, including Windows, Mac, and on the web. It is also easy for administrators to deploy to all, or a subset of their Outlook users.

Users with Outlook for Mac or the web, that do not have the necessary permissions to install the add-in should contact their administrator or follow the instructions in Amazon Chime's Scheduling Assistant to copy and paste the Chime details into their Outlook event.
