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

A conference ID is automatically assigned to a user when they are set up for dial-in conferencing using Microsoft as the dial-in conferencing provider. The conference ID assigned can be either a static or dynamic and is sent in the meeting invite when the meeting is scheduled.

Static IDs are used when people in your organization like it when they don't want to remember a random number, they can select a certain number, or they have 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 and not 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 if 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 dial-in conferencing phone numbers, or if you reset the conference ID a different email will be sent that will include the conference ID but won't include a PIN.

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