Configure the meeting join page in Skype for Business Server 2015

Summary: Learn how to configure the meeting join page in Skype for Business Server 2015.

When a user clicks a meeting link in a meeting request, the meeting join page detects whether a Skype for Business client is already installed on the user's computer. If a client is already installed, the client opens and joins the meeting. If a client is not installed, by default the 2015 version of Skype for Business client opens.

Configure the meeting join page

You can modify the behavior of the meeting join page if you want to allow users to join meetings with other versions of the client. These configuration options have been removed from the Skype for Business Server Control Panel, but you configure them by using the Set-CsWebServiceConfiguration cmdlet.
