How to Add Teams to Outlook

Hello there! I’m Tracy, a tech enthusiast keen on making tech less intimidating. This is a straightforward guide on how to add Teams to your Outlook.

Why Add Teams to Outlook?

Teams is a communication platform that seamlessly integrates with Microsoft Outlook, which can significantly boost your productivity levels. By adding Teams to Outlook, you can schedule Teams meetings straight from your outlook calendar, and collaborate more effectively with your team members.

Steps to Add Teams to Outlook

Here’s a step-by-step guide:

1. Launch Microsoft Teams

Start by opening your Microsoft Teams application. This feature is available for both web-based and desktop applications.

2. Integration Check

The Teams add-in for Outlook should automatically appear if you have both Outlook and Teams installed on the same device. Navigate to a new mail or calendar event to see if the Teams Meeting add-in is present.

3. If not Automatically Integrated

If it is not automatically integrated, you might need to enable it manually. In Outlook, go to File, then Options, then Add-ins. Check in the COM Add-ins to see if ‘Teams Meeting’ add-on is there and enabled. If not, you’ll need to enable it.

4. Restart Outlook

After enabling the add-in, restart Outlook. The Teams Meeting option should now be available when scheduling new calendar events or creating new emails.


If you encounter issues after following the above steps, it may be best to reach out to your organisation’s IT support or Microsoft’s customer service. It’s essential not to be intimidated; the tech world is full of complexities that we can easily overcome together.


By integrating Teams into Outlook, you can communicate more seamlessly with your team and boost your productivity. Should you have any inquiries or need further clarifications, feel free to contact me at . Remember, my mission with is to make tech less intimidating and more approachable for all.
