See, change, and reset a conference ID assigned to a user

A conferencing ID is automatically assigned to a Skype for Business or Microsoft Teams user when they are set up for Audio Conferencing in Office 365 and use Microsoft as the audio conferencing provider. The conference ID assigned can be either static or dynamic and is sent in the meeting invite when the meeting is scheduled.

Static IDs are used when people in your organization don't want to remember a random number; they can select a certain number or use one that's easy to remember. When dynamic conference IDs are used, each meeting that a user schedules will get assigned a unique conference ID. If you want to assign dynamic rather than static conference IDs, go here.

Although a static conference ID will be automatically created and assigned to a user, there may be times when a user doesn't want to use this one and you want to set it to a certain number, or when your users can't remember or have lost their conference ID. You can use the Skype for Business admin center and Windows PowerShell to view, change, and reset their conference ID.

An email will be sent to the user with the conference ID and the default audio conferencing phone numbers, or if you reset the conference ID a different email will be sent that will include the conference ID but not a PIN.

View and change conference IDs

You can view their conference ID and send it to users.

  1. Sign in to Office 365 with your work or school account.

  2. Go to the Office 365 admin center > Skype for Business.

  3. In the Skype for Business admin center > Audio conferencing > Users, select the user who needs the conference ID.

  4. In the Action page, look under Conference ID.

    Tip: You can send all of the conferencing information to the user in an email that includes the conference ID and audio phone numbers by clicking the Send conference info via email link after you select the user on the Users page.

    You can use Windows PowerShell to view the conference ID for a user. To do so, run:

    Get-CsOnlineDialInConferencingUser -Identity “Amos Marble”  

    See Get-CsOnlineDialInConferencingUser to learn more about the cmdlet.

You can assign or change a conference ID for a user if, for example, someone wants a conference ID that's easy to remember.

Note: The Skype for Business admin center can't be used to edit a conference ID that has been automatically created, but you can use Windows PowerShell to edit or change a conference ID that you have set.

To edit or change the conference ID for a user, run:

Set-CsOnlineDialInConferencingUser -Identity “Amos Marble”  -ConferenceId 8271964

Tip: A conference ID must contain 7 digits, and you can't change it in the Skype for Business admin center or by using Windows PowerShell.

You can reset a conference ID for a user if, for example, if they forget it.

  1. Sign in to Office 365 with your work or school account.

  2. Go to the Office 365 admin center > Skype for Business.

  3. In the Skype for Business admin center > Audio conferencing > Users, in the Action pane under Conference ID, click Reset.

  4. In the Reset conference ID? window, click Yes. A conference ID will be automatically created and an email sent to the user with the new conference ID.

    You can reset the conference ID for a user by using the Windows PowerShell. To do this, run:

    Set-CsOnlineDialInConferencingUser -Identity “Amos Marble”  -ResetLeaderPIN 8271964
