Configuring Web Scheduler in Skype for business 2015 Environment

What are different ways to schedule a Skype Meeting?

1. Skype for Business Client.

2. Outlook Client.

Well, there is another way we can create/Schedule a Skype Meetings, Skype for business Web Scheduler using any web browser.

Web Scheduler is not something that’s available by default in Skype for Business, however we can configure it to be available for Skype for business users.

One thing to keep in mind is that this Web Scheduler is mainly designed for those Customers, who would want to allow their users to be able to spin up a Skype for Business Meetings even when they don't have access to Outlook or Skype for Business Client.

Configuring Web Scheduler is pretty straight forward, this blog would guide you through the configuration procedure with reference Screenshots.

Configuring Web Scheduler Application on Skype for business Server.

  • Before configuring Web scheduler, we see below Simple URL configurations in Skype for business Infrastructure:

Get-CsSimpleUrlConfiguration | Select-Object -ExpandProperty SimpleUrl

  • Run below commands from Skype for business Management shell to create a new simple URL Entry for web scheduler:

$SimpleUrlEntry = New-CsSimpleUrlEntry -Url “”

$SimpleUrl = New-CsSimpleUrl -Component “WebScheduler” -Domain “*” -SimpleUrlEntry $SimpleUrlEntry -ActiveUrl “”

Set-CsSimpleUrlConfiguration -Identity Global -SimpleUrl @{Add=$SimpleUrl} –Verbose


  • Now we would see another simpleurl configured below:

Get-CsSimpleUrlConfiguration | Select-Object -ExpandProperty SimpleUrl

  • Run Step 2 from Deployment Wizard on all the Front End Servers in the Skype for business Pool, which adds the components for Web Scheduler Feature.


  • After performing above actions, under the Scheduler Virtual Directory (both Internal & External Website) on Skype for business Front End Servers we would see Additional URL Rewrite rules added for Web Scheduler.


  • As per the URL Rewrite module settings, Front end Server will redirect user to Internal/External Web services along with Scheduler Virtual Directory (Https:// which provides the sign in page.
