I have had some end-users reach out asking why the Join button sometimes appears in the Teams calendar and sometimes it is not there. I have tried to research it but cannot find much of an answer. Does anyone know how the Join button on the meeting in the Teams calendar works? See screenshot for the Join button I am referring to. Does it come up at a certain time like 5 minutes before a meeting? Is there anything that would prevent it from coming up? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Hello @Jschm001   As one of the users in this attached prior post puts it, this appears to be a "transient bug."  Take a look at this thread and see if there's anything here that can help you.

There is already a Uservoice item for the fix - I encourage you to vote for it:  https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/32413297-join-meeting-button

@ThereseSolimeno 

I have submitted a vote to the UserVoice article. Thank you so much for this information!

Sure you checked this. But I assume the meetings that don’t have a join button are in fact setup with a Teams meeting and not just a meeting invite via Outlook showing on users calendars? Since a meeting can’t be joined unless the Teams meeting addon is used or it’s created from Teams.

Probably not the case but that is one reason a meeting wouldn’t have join on it!

I appreciate the information. Yeah, I checked that. I have been playing around with Teams trying to replicate it and I moved a meeting time around and when it came time for the meeting, there was no Join button in the calendar in Teams. Then, I tried to replicate it again thinking I might have found the issue but it works and I cannot get the Join button to disappear. I don't think this is a huge deal because there are several ways that someone can join a meeting but hopefully I can continue using it to see if I can discover some type of trend.
