Scheduling a Skype for Business Meeting

Did you know that you can schedule Skype for Business meetings right from Outlook? The process is nearly identical to creating a normal meeting in your Calendar.

In the full Outlook application, go to Calendar, click the New Skype Meeting button, and Outlook will automatically generate a calendar invite for you to send to attendees, pre-populated with meeting info and a link that both you and the attendees can join from anywhere. Meetings can be joined through the full Skype for Business app if available, a web browser, or through the mobile app on your phone or tablet.

Be sure to visit our Knowledge Base section on Skype for Business for more detailed information on learning the basics of Skype for Business and setting up a Skype Meeting. We also recommend sending this step-by-step guide on how to join a meeting using the web app to any attendees that may be new to using Skype for Business.
