Cut down on administrative tasks by syncing Showpad with your MS Outlook calendar. The MeetingIQ Bot will be automatically added to any upcoming meetings you have scheduled with external participants and a valid meeting link. External participants are people not within your organization who have an email address with a different domain than yours. Skip the step of manually inviting the bot and no more worrying about forgetting anyone on the invite!
Note: For meetings where the MeetingIQ Bot was added via Showpad, either through the MS Outlook Calendar sync or from within the Meetings tab, the bot will not show as an attendee on the calendar invite.
