Schedule in Outlook for Windows (CustomInvite)

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:

  1. Sign in to your Outlook account and open the Calendar.
  2. 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.

  3. Enter a meeting subject, select the date and time for the meeting, and add people to invite.
  4. Click Send to send the invitation to your guests.
