What should I do if I have already scheduled a meeting to start on November 6, 2016?

If you have already scheduled a VO meeting starting on November 6 with an older version of Virtual Office Desktop (version 4.4.544 or earlier) you should:

  • Upgrade to VOD Desktop 4.5.x.
  • Delete any VO meeting starting on November 6, 2016.
  • Schedule a new replacement VO Meeting with the same attendees.
