There are two ways to meet using Skype for Business: from Outlook or from the Meet Now feature in the Skype for Business application.

From Outlook
  • Sign in to Skype for Business.
  • On the Home tab in Outlook, click New Items > Meeting. A new window pops up with your untitled meeting.

  • Enter the necessary information for the meeting (invitees, subject, location, date, time).
  • From the ribbon, click Skype Meeting.

    The body of your meeting invitation will be populated with Skype meeting information and the Skype Meeting button will change to Join Skype Meeting as shown in the figure below. Depending on your organization’s set up, you may or may not see the Join by phone option.

  • Click the Send button to send the meeting invitation.
From the Skype for Business Application
  • Click the down arrow next to the Settings icon and click Meet Now.

  • From the meeting window that opens, click the Invite More People button at the top-right corner of the window.
