Hi,

 

We have MS Teams set up with MS audio conferencing (no calling plan). Everything is working fine and a new conference id is generated for each meeting scheduled via Outlook.

 

I’ve been asked if some of our users could have a fixed conference id assigned instead. Looking at the documentation at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/MicrosoftTeams/see-change-and-reset-a-conference-id-assigned-to-a-u... seems to say this is possible but the article at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/MicrosoftTeams/reset-a-conference-id-for-a-user-in-teams says that it is not (but it then goes on to explain how to do it).

 

Is anyone able to clarify the situation please?

 

Thanks,

Richard

Yeah, it’s a bit confusing but you cannot set it to static with Microsoft , just reset it!

There’s uservoice for it here:

@Richard Rodgers What the first article is actually referring to is the user's Conference PIN, not the Conference ID.  You can reset a Conference PIN but not an actual Conference ID.  The wording is, as you've seen, not quite correct.

 

Conference IDs will be dynamic and unique for every instance of a meeting created.  The only exception is when you create a reoccurring meeting, that reoccurring meeting will have the same conference ID for the life of the meeting (until the end date of the reoccurring meeting).

@Richard Rodgers You can schedule a recurring meeting with no end date to create a pseudo-static conference.

 

+ you can double/triple-book that time.

- it's not a true static conference but for that meeting series that conference ID remains the same indefinitely.

Interesting, they must have changed this, because it used to always be the same ID for the user for all meetings :P. Which is good and bad!

We have followed the rule to set a reoccurring meeting that is continuous, and yet the Conference IDs does not remain static.  Your knowledge states that reoccurring meeting will have the same conference ID for the life of the meeting (until the end date of the reoccurring meeting).@Rob Geach  @Mircosoft 

 

 

@Carneypatti Did you ever get an answer to your issue - We have followed the rule to set a reoccurring meeting that is continuous, and yet the Conference IDs does not remain static. 

 

The same thing is happening to me.  Thank you!

@Carneypatti Same issue here; I set up a meeting for 12/31/2199 and it was working, and then the conference ID's suddenly stopped working last week.
