Best Practices for Meetings using Skype for Business - Large Audiences

Hello ladies and gentlemen,

When you’re scheduling your Skype for Business (Lync) Meetings, you can use the default options, which are appropriate for small and casual meetings with coworkers.

It’s a good idea to modify the options if:

  • You’re inviting more than 10-15 people. You can have up to 250 participants.

  • You want to control participants’ permissions, (IM, Audio, Video).

  • You want to have a new meeting ID, which allows only people you invite to join, (added security).

  • You have invitees from other companies.

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.

Look especially in these options:

- Who’s a presenter?
   I recommend “Only me, the meeting organizer” or “People I choose”

- Do you want to limit participation?
   I recommend select all three options


More details about each option, see this article: Set options for Skype for Business (Lync) Meetings

Happy SfB meetings!
