Microsoft’s Starbucks for Outlook Add-in is Perfect for Coffee Lovers
Microsoft and Starbucks have partnered up to help coffee addicts everywhere get their fix.
Schedule your next meeting at Starbucks with the Starbucks for Outlook add-in
The new Starbucks for Outlook add-in allows you to easily schedule meetings at the local Starbucks coffee shop of your choice. If you have the add-in installed, you can simply click the “Meet at Starbucks” icon in the ribbon when filling out a new appointment/meeting, find the Starbucks of your choice and then set it as the location of the meeting.
Feeling generous? Send a Starbucks eGift card using the Starbucks for Outlook add-in
The add-in also allows you to send a Starbucks gift card, should you be in a giving mood. You can even score a free $5 gift card in return, but this offer is only available for a limited time. (Note: A Starbucks account is required to buy a eGift card, but you don’t need a Starbucks account to schedule meetings.)
