Schedule a Teams meeting from Outlook

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.

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

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

  1. Add your invitees to the Required or Optional field(s)—you can even invite entire contact groups (formerly known as distribution lists).
  2. Add your meeting subject, location, start time, and end time.
  3. Create your message.
  4. Then click Send.

If you don’t see the New Teams Meeting icon in the desktop version of Outlook, the Teams add-in for Outlook might not be installed properly.
