Cancel a Lync or Skype meeting

You set up a Skype for Business meeting and now you no longer need to hold the meeting or you decide to meet in person. You can delete or cancel a Skype for Business meeting a few different ways.

In this article

Delete or cancel the meeting entirely

If you no longer need to hold the meeting, simply cancel the meeting.

Change from a Skype for Business online meeting to an in-person meeting

You have two options for changing a Skype meeting to an in-person meeting.

Option 1

Cancel the original meeting, and schedule a new meeting without Skype meeting details.

Option 2

  1. In Outlook Calendar, open the meeting invitation.

  2. Delete the Skype meeting information from the meeting details.

  3. Optionally, add a physical location in the Location field.

  4. Click Update to send the updated meeting invitation to all recipients.

    Note:  This doesn’t actually cancel the Skype for Business meeting, but it removes the link for joining a Skype meeting and all the pertinent information from the body of the invitation, making it appear as a meeting that doesn't involve Skype.

Decline a Skype for Business meeting

If you want to decline a Skype meeting invitation or change your response to a meeting that you’ve already accepted, follow these steps.

  1. Open the meeting invitation. This can be either the original invitation request or the meeting as it appears in your Outlook Calendar.

  2. In the Respond group, click Decline.

  3. Click Send.
