Recently we have made some improvements to two of our scheduling integrations the Outlook Add-in, and the Google Calendar Extension. Below are some of the highlights. We hope you check them out!

BlueJeans Outlook Add-in 4.0
Our latest add-in is focused completely on improving performance. Outlook users will see the following quality enhancements:

  • BlueJeans will no longer impact Outlook launch time
  • The time to schedule a BlueJeans meeting has been reduced by 70%
  • Crashing issues have been resolved to eliminate the add-in getting disabled or "disappearing".
  • Additional resilience has been added
Note: Users who are upgrading from Outlook add-in version 3.4.761 will see the false error below. Once they press OK, the upgrade will proceed as normal. If the Outlook add-in is centrally pushed through IT, then end users should not see this error.

If you have not updated your Outlook Add-in yet, you can download it for free from our downloads page.

BlueJeans for Google Calendar 2.0

This update has new features to reduce time to setup, time to join, and enable one-time meeting scheduling. These include:
  • BlueJeans Easy Buttons - We have added easy to schedule and easy to join buttons in different locations on your Google Calendar.
  • Direct Launch of the BlueJeans app - When users click on "Join BlueJeans Meeting", instead of launching the browser and then the app, we will now launch the app directly. This will reduce the join time by approximately 5 seconds!
  • Schedule One-Time Meetings - In addition to personal meeting IDs, we are adding the ability to schedule using unique meeting IDs
You can read a bit more about this extension, as well as see some helpful screenshots, from our last community update.

Thanks for being a part of what makes BlueJeans great! If you ever have any questions, feel free to check out our new support site, or ask our amazing Community!
