Turn on or off entry and exit announcements for meetings

When you are setting up Audio Conferencing in Office 365, you will get an audio conferencing bridge. A conferencing bridge can contain one or more phone numbers that people will use to call into a Skype for Business or Microsoft Teams meetings.

The conferencing bridge answers a call for a user that is dialing into a meeting using a phone. The conferencing bridge answers the caller with voice prompts from an conferencing auto attendant and then depending on your settings can play notifications, ask callers to record their name and sets up the PIN security. A PIN is given to a Skype for Business or Microsoft Teams meeting organizer that allows them to start a meeting if they can't start the meeting using a Skype for Business or Microsoft Teams app. You can however, set it so that a PIN isn't required to start a meeting.

Setting meeting join options

  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 > check or uncheck Enable meeting entry and exit notifications to be turned on This is selected by default. However if you uncheck it, users that have already joined the meeting won't be notified that someone enters or leaves the meeting

  5. After you make your changes, click Save.
