Using the Microsoft Teams Meeting Add-In for Outlook

Tags Outlook Teams


Microsoft Teams is an easy way to pull together a group to share, collaborate and communicate in one central location without the use of phone calls that take time away from our day or emails that can easily get buried.  From directly within Teams we can bring everyone together to share information, securely edit files live and at the same time, bring together Microsoft Office 365 apps (OneDrive, OneNote, Planner, Forms, etc) and third-party apps and websites in one place, tag members of the team in conversations or actions and customize the work through adding notes (OneNote and others) and other applications.  Using the Teams plug-in in Outlook can be a great assistant when scheduling Teams meetings.

Using Teams Outlook Plug-In

Scheduling meetings within Teams is great, but Outlook adds the ability to schedule meetings and include your contacts and groups right out of Outlook.  Here's how:

  1. Click on your Outlook Calendar
  2. Across the top, you should see the Teams Meeting Add-In button - if you do not, click here to troubleshoot.

  3. Fill out the meeting form just as you normally would, notice in the example that a group has been invited - and not just individuals.  Also note that the link to the meeting, and all associated details have been added to the meeting invitation.
