Enable users to record their name when they join a meeting

When you are setting up Audio Conferencing for Skype for Business and Microsoft Teams, you will receive phone numbers and what is called an audio conferencing bridge. A conferencing bridge can contain one or more phone numbers that can be a dedicated or shared phone number.

The conferencing bridge answers a call for a user who is dialing in to a meeting using a phone. The conferencing bridge answers the caller with voice prompts from an auto attendant and then, depending on their settings, can play notifications, ask callers to record their name, and sets up the PIN security for meeting organizers. PINs are given to a meeting organizer that allows them to start a meeting. However, you can set it up so a PIN isn't required to start a meeting.

Set whether callers should record their name

  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, in the left navigation, go to Audio conferencing > Microsoft bridge settings.

  4. Under Meeting join experience > Enable meeting entry and exit notifications to be turned on

    • Checked Callers will be asked to record their name before they enter the meeting. This is selected by default.

    • Unchecked Callers won't be asked to record their name before they enter the meeting.

  5. After you make your changes, click Save.
