Microsoft Outlook - Outlook Calendar Zoom Plugin Not Working

Issue:  On Windows computers, Outlook 2016 with the Zoom plugin may repeatedly prompt for credentials when scheduling a Zoom meeting.

Upon initial access to the Zoom Outlook add-in, you will be prompted to log into the installed Zoom application (one time, not repeatedly).

Workaround:  Set your default browser to Chrome (not Internet Explorer or Edge).

  • From the Windows start menu, search and launch Default apps.
  • From the list of apps, locate Web browser, click on the current browser listed, and select Chrome.

Fix:  Upgrade Office 2016 to Office 365 from the Software Center.
