Start is a great option

Start an instant meeting in Teams

There are several ways to call an impromptu meeting with just a few clicks.

From your calendar

  1. Go to the left of Teams on calendar , and select in the upper right corner Start meeting out.

  2. There are a few things you can do before you start your meeting. Give it a title, choose whether to use video, and your preferred audio source.

  3. When you're ready, press Participate now.

Your meeting is now underway - all you need is people to attend.

To invite people:

  1. Start by typing the name or phone number of the person you want to invite in the box at the top right below people. Select the person when they appear in the list and they will receive a call immediately.

  2. Another option is to copy the meeting link and send it to anyone you want to meet with. They can then join by pressing the link. Just choose Copy participation information and paste the link in a message.

If you don't have a meeting scheduling feature in Outlook or Teams, starting an instant meeting is a good option. Just like with scheduled meetings, everyone in your meeting will still have access to the meeting chat, recording, and everything else the meeting participants share (such as files and meeting notes) after the meeting ends.

To join the same meeting anytime, find the meeting chat in your chat list, and select take part out.
