Start or join the meeting

Always start your Skype meeting from the meeting invitation in Outlook. This ensures that dial-in access participants are linked correctly to your Skype meeting. For full control, we recommend that you connect with Skype audio.

When hosting, use the Skype desktop clients for Mac or Windows.

To start or join the meeting:

  1. In the meeting invitation, click the Join Skype Meeting link.

    This opens your Skype for Business application, starts your meeting, and prompt you to connect your audio via the Join Meeting Audio window.

  2. Select how you want to connect your audio and then click OK. Select:
    • Use Skype for Business for full meeting control. Skype automatically connects to your computer’s speakers and microphone (or headset, if available).
    • Don’t join audio to dial in using one of the phone numbers in the meeting invitation or to use the meeting invitation link to have the meeting call you. Follow the prompts to enter the conference ID as the passcode.

      If you are dialing in as the host, enter the conference ID followed by your 4-digit host code.
