How to schedule a Teams meeting from Outlook

19 March 2020










We recognise that many people are yet to be fully exposed to Microsoft Teams so have pulled together a quick 'how-to-use' guide to help those who are now working from home. 

Microsoft Teams includes the Outlook add-in, which lets you create new Teams meetings directly from Outlook. It also lets people view, accept, or join meetings in either app.

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

Add your invitees to the Required field—you can even invite entire contact groups by clicking the required button (formerly known as distribution lists). Add your meeting title, location, start time, and end time. Then click Send.


Click the ‘Join Microsoft Teams’ Meeting once the meeting is about to start and you should be connected.
