Outlook plug-in now available for downloading

Matchpeg's plug-in for Microsoft Outlook has finished its beta period, and is now freely available for download.

You can find further information on the plug-in at

The plug-in seamlessly integrates Matchpeg with Microsoft Outlook:
  • Your meetings in Matchpeg are automatically added to your Outlook calendar.
  • You can also choose to have the minutes of meetings automatically filed against the Outlook appointment in PDF form.
  • Actions from meetings are added to your Outlook task list.
  • Workflow items assigned to you are also added to your task list.
  • You can create meetings in Matchpeg from appointments in your Outlook calendar: in other words, schedule meetings in the usual way using Outlook/Exchange functionality, and then add the meeting to Matchpeg once the attendees are confirmed.
  • You can edit the minutes of a meeting off-line, and then upload the minutes into Matchpeg when an internet connection is available again.
The plug-in is in fact a "suite of off-line tools". The off-line minutes editing is available both within Outlook and as a standalone application. Therefore, it's worth having a look at the tool even if you are not an Outlook user.
