Today, I’m going to show you how to schedule a meeting in Microsoft Teams.
To schedule a meeting, first click on the Teams icon on the left-hand menu of your screen. Select the appropriate team channel you wish to begin a meeting with.
Then click on the down arrow next to the Meet icon on the top right of your screen. This will allow you to either meet now or schedule a meeting for later.
Note that if you click directly on the Meet icon, the program will launch the meetings application instantly. This is the same as the Meet now button within the dropdown menu.
Select Schedule a meeting from the dropdown menu. This will take you to the meeting setup page.
Now, select the appropriate time zone the meeting will be held in.
From here, we can add a title for the meeting, select the desired or required attendees of the meeting, the date and time, and how long the meeting will run to.
Note that by default, the meeting is set to 30 minutes but may be changed to different time frames and days. If you wish to run the meeting all day, click on the toggle button to All day.
Next, you can change the frequency that the meeting repeats, the team channels it is for, the location, and enter the meeting details below in the provided text field.
For a quick setup, leave these settings as they are.
Once you are finished with setting up the meeting, click the Send button in the top right of your screen. To cancel the setup, select Close.
You can find the scheduled meeting in the Calendar tab on the left-hand side menu of your screen. By hovering the mouse over the invite, it will show you the scheduled time.
Click and select Join to connect to the meeting, this will also allow you to Edit the meeting and Chat with participants. To cancel the meeting, right click on the invite and select Cancel.
Note: You can add and schedule a meeting directly from your calendar by clicking on any date or timeslot available.
That is how you schedule a meeting in Microsoft Teams.
