Issue: How to create clickable and mobile friendly conference ID in Skype for Business meeting in Outlook?
Recently I came across situation where I face difficulty while dialing the conference number and conference ID using iPhone mobile device because phone number is clickable however I have to type conference ID manually after phone number and leader PIN. It would have nice if I could use make /create a Lync/skype meeting in outlook with the clickable conference information with mobile friendly number which I can just click on my mobile to join conference with one click.
As per my understanding there no specific customization on server side to make dialin and conference ID as clickable.
You can do this using your Outlook which you are using for scheduling online Skype/Lync meetings.
Follow the below steps to create create clickable conference number format:
1. Open Outlook > click on New Item > Select Skype Meeting > click on “Meeting Options”.
2. In Meeting Option page select “My dedicated meeting space (less secure)”
3. Click on “Remember Setting” and then “OK”. Refer below image.
Note: Above steps will keep your conference ID same so that you’re your customize invite and add clickable and mobile friendly conference information.
You can find dialin number and conference ID in your meeting invite.
4. Without leader code:
· Clickable Conference Number without leader code (Mobile-friendly):
· E.g.: +14083337373,2959000#
With leader code:
· Clickable Conference Number with leader code (Mobile-friendly):
· E.g.: +14083337373,2959000#,*54321
Invite will look like below:
Once you added your desire number format in the body of the invite. Send that invite to attendee. So attendee can join your meeting using clickable conference information using there iPhone mobile device.

With leader code:
I have not tested using Android device but I think it will work.
Remember: Your conference ID doesn’t change – it stays the same (unless you deliberately change it on the dialin-conferencing webpage, which will invalidate your clickable and mobile friendly dial). If you want to join somebody else’s meeting using clickable and mobile friendly dial, then put their conference ID in here instead of your conference ID.
Note: make sure you use a ‘#’ to terminate any multi-digit input, like conf ID.
