Last Updated about a month ago

Schedule a Teams meeting

There are several ways to schedule a meeting in Teams:
  • Select Schedule a meeting Schedule a meeting button in a chat (below the box where you type a new message) to book a meeting with the people in the chat.
  • Go to Calendar Meetings button on the left side of the app and select New meeting in the top right corner.
  • Select a range of time in the calendar. A scheduling form will pop open.
The scheduling form is where you'll give your meeting a title, invite people, and add meeting details. Use the Scheduling Assistant to find a time that works for everyone.

Make it a channel meeting

  1. Select New meeting.
  2. Type the name of a channel where it says Add channel (under the time and date fields).
Channels can't be edited or added once the invite is sent. You'll need to send a new invite with the updated channel.

Invite people outside your organization

Teams lets you invite people outside your organization, including those who don't have a Teams license. You'll need their full email address to invite them.

  1. Go to where it says Add required attendees. If anyone is an optional attendee, select Optional instead.
  2. Type the person's full email address (ex: Joe@example.com).
  3. Select Invite. They'll receive an email with a link to the meeting.
