Christine from Ipswich, MA. Wondering what the best practice is for scheduling meetings on someone else's behalf when using Teams. Can you have someone be a delegate to set up meetings?

You can set up a delegate in Outlook and add Teams meeting link with the outlook plugin when scheduling meetings as delegate from outlook. :)

Yes, you can add meeting link as a delegate, but it is your info, not the other person's info. How do you add the other person's Teams info when you are a delegate?

There is no longer an Outlook plugin for scheduling Teams meetings.  All Teams meetings must be scheduled via the Teams apps (browser, desktop, phone, tablet).

Have you found an answer to scheduling a Teams meeting as a delegate? I just started looking for an answer but so far no luck.

Hi Rodger,

from where do you have this information? The Teams outlook plugin is of course still available right now.

 

See the attached image. But i haven't really found a solution for scheduling on behalf of....

We're looking for a solution as well.  We just realized that when an admin schedules a meeting on the behalf of somebody that it's the admins teams info in the call.  This explains why people could never get their PIN to work when having to manually dial into a meeting. 

 

Seems like a bug to me.

The delegate can schedule a non-team associated Team meeting just like they would schedule a Skype meeting. I can not find a way to schedule a team Team meeting as a delegate. I kind of shy away from team Team meetings because although I do like the information about the meeting (and a link if you record it) showing up in the channel, I have a stronger dislike that I can't schedule a meeting in the channel and only invite select people.

There's a bug in the add-in install for the Team Meeting add-in.  If you previously had 64-bit Office (which I was testing) and then you install 32-bit Office, the Team Meeting add-in will fail to install.  The fix for me was to manually copy over the Teams Meeting add-in folder and manually run the register command to register the 32-bit version of the add-in.

At least on here the normal outlook "on behalf of" working just fine for users with Outlook Add-ins. In my mind this is because on Teams there are not so hard lines with organizer like Skype had, or Teams product group has really thought about this when they build the Outlook add-in for Teams.

@Kevin Watts 

I had a actually a bit different point on here. As there is no real owner/organizer/roles for Teams meetings like Skype had, this is kind of not needed yet. With using Outlook you can schedule (assuming your credentials works) a meeting on behalf of someone else.

 

Of course if you are using Teams' on calendar "application", that does not support booking on behalf of others.
