How to set Skype for Business Meeting options?
You can customize meeting options as per your requirement.
Simply Click New Skype for Business (Lync) Meeting in your Outlook calendar, then click Meeting Options on the ribbon. Here you can pick the appropriate choices for the meeting you’re scheduling.
There are option which allow you to choose meeting space:
Click New Skype for Business (Lync) Meeting in your Outlook calendar, then click Meeting Options on the ribbon A new meeting space (I control permissions).
This option is more secure, and suitable for when you present confidential information. You get a brand new meeting with a unique ID, and can customize permissions such as who gets to be a presenter, mute people or prevent them from sharing video.
When you use this option and get a new meeting space, participants from your previous meetings don’t accidentally join your next meeting, in case they remain online. Also with a new meeting space, you can add additional security and only allow people who you want to join.
If you want to always use this option, click Remember Settings at the bottom of the window, so that all your future meetings automatically have a new ID and the permissions you select.
· My dedicated meeting space (less secure)
This is simply your own meeting room and will always have the same ID and permissions. Content, such as PowerPoint presentations or other files remain in the meeting until you delete them. This is a good option for informal meetings with coworkers, which lets them sign in at any time with presenter permissions.
How do I limit the participation in Skype for Business Meeting?
If you are setting up a large event or want to eliminate interruption, you can mute all attendees, disable meeting IM or prevent them from using their webcam, by checking the boxes below:
1. Disable IM
2. Mute all attendees
3. Block attendees’ video
These settings apply only to attendees. Presenters can always share audio and video in the meeting.
Skype meeting Option for Phone
This tab may not be available to you, depending on your account settings.
· Where will most people call in from?
Sometimes people call into the meeting with a phone instead of using computer audio. You can help them find the local number quickly and avoid long distance charges by choosing the area most people may call in from.
In the meeting options, click the Phone tab and choose the area under Where will most people call in from? The local number then shows up on the invitation for that area.
· Forgot your Dial-in PIN (Personal Identification Number)
Most of the time, you don’t need a PIN when you call into the meeting with a phone. You get connected directly and your number shows up in the participant list. But, if you want to call in as the leader or an authenticated caller, you’ll be prompted for your PIN and/or work number or extension.
Dialing in as authenticated caller simply means that the meeting is secured and you need to be identified before joining the meeting. Your name then shows up in the participant list, instead of your number.
If you don’t remember your PIN, click Get your PIN now in the meeting options, and follow the instructions on the page to reset.
