With the Mapwize AddIn for Microsoft Outlook, you can see in one click where your next meeting is taking place and easily get there. The extension of the Outlook calendar automatically detects the meeting rooms associated to the event and displays the indoor map of the office with those rooms highlighted.
- This AddIn is still in Beta. To gain an early access, please contact your Mapwize Account Manager.
- The AddIn does not work in Safari (through office.com)
The AddIn can be used with:
- Outlook 2016 app on Windows
- Outlook 2016 app on Mac

The AddIn can be installed by users individually (if they have the permission to do so), or by Office administrators.
The AddIn will soon be available on the Office Store. In the meanwhile, the installation is done by manually pointing to the URL provided by your Mapwize Account Manager.
Sign In and Permissions
The first time a user will open the Mapwize AddIn, he/she will be asked to Sign In using a Mapwize account. Multiple methods are available for Sign In including Azure AD and SAML.
