Sometimes Skype for Business users may need you to send them their Audio Conferencing information. You can do this by using the Skype for Business admin center and clicking Send conference info via email under the properties for a user. When you send this email, it will contain all of the audio conferencing information, including:
The conference phone or dial-in phone number for the user.
The user's conference ID.
Here is an example of the email that is sent:
We are frequently updating how you can manage features found in Skype for Business Online, so the steps here might be a little different.

Go to the admin center > Skype for Business, and in the left navigation, click Audio conferencing.
Click Users, and then select the user.
In the Action pane, click Send conference info via email.
You can also send email to the user with the audio conferencing settings by editing the user's properties and then clicking Audio conferencing > Send conference info via email.
What else should you know about this email?
There are several emails that are sent to users in your organization after they are enabled for audio conferencing:
When an Audio Conferencing license is assigned to them.
When you manually reset the user's audio conferencing PIN.
When you manually reset the user's conference ID.
When an Audio Conferencing license is removed from them.
When the audio conferencing provider for a user is changed from Microsoft to another provider or None.
When the audio conferencing provider for a user is changed to Microsoft.
By default, the sender of the emails will be from Microsoft 365 or Office 365, but you can change the email address and display name by using Windows PowerShell and the Set-CsOnlineDialInConferencingTenantSettings cmdlet. To make changes to the email address that is sending the email to users, you must:
Enter the email address in the SendEmailFromAddress parameter.
Set the SendEmailOverride parameter to True.
Enter the email display name in the SendEmailFromDisplayName parameter.
Set-CsOnlineDialInConferencingTenantSetting -SendEmailOverride $true -SendEmailFromAddress email@example.com -SendEmailFromDisplayName "Amos Marble"
If you want to change the email address information, you need to make sure that the inbound email policies of your organization allow emails that come from the custom email address that is set.
Want to know how to manage with Windows PowerShell?
To save time or automate this, you can use the Set-CsOnlineDialInConferencingUser cmdlet.
To send an email to the user with their audio conferencing information, run the following:
Set-CsOnlineDialInConferencingUser -id firstname.lastname@example.org -SendEmail
