The first step is scheduling your Skype meeting in Outlook. This creates the meeting invitation with a link to your Skype meeting, the conference ID (participant passcode), and a list of dial-in numbers.
If you want to set meeting options for the lobby and who joins as presenters, use the GMSO Meeting add-in.
To schedule the meeting:
- Sign in to your Outlook account and open the Calendar.
- On the ribbon, click New Skype Meeting.
The New Meeting window opens. The body of the invitation contains your GMSO meeting connection details.
Note: If you see the standard Skype meeting invitation (below), the CustomInvite add-in is not installed. Use the GMSO Meeting add-in or contact your admin for help.
The Skype buttons change to Join Skype Meeting and Meeting Options. Do not use Meeting Options to set Skype options; the invitation doesn’t capture your choices. Use the GMSO Meeting add-in if you’d like to set meeting options.
- Enter a meeting subject, select the date and time for the meeting, and add people to invite.
- Click Send to send the invitation to your guests.
