Hello

Can anyone tell me if it is possible to:

a) Turn off the Lobby for all our users in Skype for Business permanently

b) In Outlook, make New Skype Meeting the default for all new meeting requests (ie: for every meeting our users create we want the users Skype meeting details to be included)

Thanks in advance.

Jodie

Hi,

 

a) Yes, that is possible. You have to change the meeting configuration on the server. To change it for everyone change the Global configuration

Set-CsMeetingConfiguration -Identity Global -AdmitAnonymousUsersByDefault $true

 

You could also set PstnCallersBypassLobby to $true if you want users dialing in from PSTN to bypass the lobby.

Set-CsMeetingConfiguration -Identity Global -PstnCallersBypassLobby $true

 

b) I might sure but I don't think that is possible. You have to teach your users to create Skype meetings instead of forcing it.
