Meeting Update Tool for Skype for Business and Lync

The Meeting Update Tool for Skype for Business and Lync helps you update your meetings when your account switches servers or when it upgrades from Lync to Skype for Business. This tool finds your meetings with old links and automatically sends updated invitations to the participants so they can join your meetings.

Both Outlook and Skype for Business need to be open while running the migration tool.

Note: The update tool can only update meetings for you if your SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) address (for example, is the same in Skype for Business as it was in Lync. If your SIP address changed, you'll need to recreate your meetings in Skype for Business.

    Note: In some cases where the meeting organizer has the same display name as a meeting recipient, the recipient with the same display name will also see the organizer's meetings listed. To correct this the recipient can just unselect the organizer before proceeding.

  6. On the next screen, you can select the meetings you want to update. If you're a delegate, you’ll see the names of the people whose calendars you manage. You can choose to migrate your own meetings at the same time as theirs, or you can un-check their names to migrate your own meetings first. Then click Back, or run the tool again later to migrate the others’ meetings.

  7. The tool then searches for all your Skype for Business meetings, and you’ll see a list of the meetings, their start and end dates, and recurrence patterns.

  8. Click Update.
