Schedule your conference calls with BlueJeans


Does your unit make regular conference calls? If so, encourage your colleagues to use BlueJeans to schedule their own calls moving forward.

Starting in July, a relatively small number of people in the U-M community who contacted university operators for assistance will need to set up conference calls themselves. ITS and Student Affairs will discontinue operator-assisted conferencing calls on June 30, 2017.

Operators have been using BlueJeans, U-M’s preferred conferencing service, to schedule calls. An account is needed to schedule and moderate BlueJeans meetings, but all participants can join without an account.

Using BlueJeans

People in participating U-M units can set up BlueJeans conference calls on their own for no additional charge by following these steps:

  1. Create a U-M BlueJeans Account
  2. Optional: Download and install software to make scheduling easier
    • Browser extensions for Chrome and Safari allow you to schedule BlueJeans meetings in Google Calendar
    • An add-in for Microsoft Outlook allows you to manage BlueJeans meetings in Outlook calendar
  3. Schedule a BlueJeans meeting

ITS offers resources to help with Getting Started and completing Common Tasks. For more information about this change, contact Jennifer Herron at
