  • (Edited)
We are proud to announce the impending public beta of the Blue Jeans Outlook Add-in 3.0! We have been SUPER hard at work making the next evolution of our Outlook add-in.

In This Release:
- New Meeting workflow
-- Now you can actually SEE the meeting details BEFORE the send button his tapped!
- Any Device
-- Now user can see their moderator information from other devices
- What's New View
-- Now we can tell users what features are new so they can take advantage of the new #AWESOME features.
- SSO Improvements
-- we had some issues with a couple customers that we fixed
- Edit Meeting Details
-- Now you can edit the meeting details, delete the details (Like CA asked), whatever you want
- Meet Now!
-- Now you can "meet now" from the BJN menu on the ribbon.

KNOWN ISSUES FOR THIS VERSION: (We will hopefully have most of these solves for GA—except the “Google issue”)
- Schedule Meeting is not working in a machine where word is not installed
- Users may not able to cancel a recurrence meeting after edit
- Attached file cannot be seen on re-open(edit) meeting
- Not able to cancel meeting by clicking 'Cancel option/delete button’
- ‘Meet Now' option is not working from SSO/clp account's
- Moderator content is "shown" on sync in Google Calendar, (synced via 'Google apps sync for Outlook' ). ***This is a Google Calendar behavior***. You might want to refer to "https://productforums.google.com/foru..." and other posts that points to the problem. There are no known workarounds for this problem. Outlook scheduled events have identical behavior as our add-in and happens for everyone.
- ‘Save/cancel' popup is not shown when we create a meeting from 'Add Blue Jeans Meeting' and close it
- ‘Enable automatic recording ' and 'Disable chat messaging' option are greyed out after upgrade.

I was very excited to get to try all the new features and the team has way out done them selves. It is a solid piece of software that brought even more usability to the already great tool.  Thank you for getting it to everyone for an open beta!

We love the concept of this plug-in and the development of it's features are really coming along. Unfortunately there still seems to be a fundemental design flaw preventing the adoption of this in our open view calendar environment. In essence, we allow teams of Exec Assistants to view the details of Execs BlueJeans meetings, however once the assistant installs the plugin it blocks access to the Execs meeting details. In this way, they lose essential viewing capabilities by installing the this Add-in. We have no way of restoring the view without unistalling BlueJeans Outlook Add-in. A real shame, as we would love to have this adopted by our users. Anyone explain why is designed this way or provide a  workaround. Thanks!

I would not classify that as a design flaw, but an addition of feature functionality to support executive admins.  

On that note, we WILL be supporting this use case in the not-too-distant future.  

When we do have "delegates" supported in Blue Jeans, we will totally make use of this a feature in the Outlook Add-in. #staytuned

Lo he descargado y nos viene de perlas porque muchos de nuestros contactos se pierden con el inglés. Esto nos permite actualizar el texto en español para ellos!

Muchas gracias.

Tedd:  I got an email saying that the release date was 2/28 for the production version and that we would be able to access it from the download center.  When I download the plugin from the download center I am still getting the 2.3 version.  Any idea when the download center will be updated or how I can get my hands on the production version?

Thanks!

You are correct.  We will push it out tonight.  We had a delay on the server side over the weekend.  

Sorry for the mis-comm
