Schedule a Teams meeting from Outlook

Applies to: Microsoft Teams.

Desktop and web

Microsoft Teams has the Outlook add-in, which enables you to design new Teams meetings straight from Outlook. It also allows people to view, accept, or join meetings in either app.

Note: Currently, you can schedule Teams meetings from Outlook, but not choose a channel to have them in.

To schedule a meeting, access Outlook and switch to the calendar view. Select New Teams Meeting at the top of the view.

Import your invitees to the To field—you can also invite whole contact groups (formerly known as distribution lists). Append your meeting subject, location, start time, and end time. Then, press Send.

You can even invite people from beyond your organisation from Outlook. Simply ensure to add them as guests before the meeting commences or they must join anonymously.
