Meeting delegation Microsoft Teams

Super quick post how to setup delegation for meetings with Microsoft Teams.

The easiest way is to allow Outlook to configure delegation.

File –> Account settings –> Delegate Access

Add your delegate. In this case we will be using guy1.

Once delegation is set in Outlook have your delegate open your calendar and simply create a Teams meeting.

The recipient in this case test 4 gets a meeting invite “on behalf” of guy2 from guy1.

Unable to create Skype meeting from Outlook on a MAC

Are you a MAC user? Do you also happen to use Skype for communication? Are you trying to create a Skype meeting from Outlook and getting an error? Is the message “To create the online meeting, sign in to Skype for Business (Lync) and try again” ?

Well there is a simple fix for this.:

On the MAC desktop go to Security & Privacy –> Privacy –>Automation. In the Automation box should have some apps listed. If you scroll down to the SFB app it should have Outlook underneath it. Make sure that box is checked. You may also want to log out of Skype and Outlook and back in and test. This should now be resolved.
