  • All future meetings will now be set as online meetings in Teams
    • Note: This only applies to new meetings made after you have modified this setting in Office 365. Any meetings that were scheduled prior to changing the setting will need to be converted in the Outlook Calendar.

    • Note: When events are scheduled they will not be made into a Teams meeting until attendees are added. Therefore, the Teams meeting button will not be toggled to on until attendees are added to the event. See the images below:
