Chili Piper's Outlook Add-In enables you to book meetings with prospects directly from within your O365 email.
In this section, we'll show how you can either book directly with the customer, or suggest available times that they can then book themselves.
Note: We have depreciated support for Internet Explorer 11-based versions of Outlook Desktop. Please ensure you are using the most up-to-date version of Outlook using Edge browser integration or you may be unable to utilize the add-in.
