If you know your Teams meetings repeat on a regular basis, you can set up a recurring meeting. In this manner, you don’t need to manually create the meeting every time you want to inform people about it. You can create the meeting once and enable the recurrence option.
Steps to Create a Recurring Meeting in Teams
- Click on the Meetings tab and select Schedule meeting.
- Enter the meeting details and save the new meeting.
- Then click Share via Outlook.
- Your Outlook calendar should now be visible on the screen. Double-click on your Teams meeting to open the settings page.
- Then locate the Repeat option which should be set to Never by default.
- Click the drop-down menu and customize the meeting recurrence settings. You can set the meeting to repeat every day, week, or month.
- Under Search for a location, switch the Teams button to On. Save the settings by hitting the Save button.
- Note: If the Teams button is missing, you need to install the Teams add-in for MS Office. For more information, check out this guide: Fix Microsoft Teams Not Integrating With Outlook.
As you can see, in order to schedule recurring Teams meetings, you need to share the meeting via Outlook. Then you can open the meeting settings and customize the recurrence option.
Depending on your Teams version, you may be able to set up recurring meetings directly on the Teams desktop app without passing through Outlook. Older Teams versions still allow you to set up the meeting details within the app. However, the latest Teams app versions no longer feature this option.
So, one quick workaround is to create the meeting in Teams and then tweak the recurrence settings in Outlook. The key is to switch the Teams button to On under Search for a location. In this manner, Outlook will propagate the recurring meetings to Teams. And that’s another example of the Teams – Outlook integration Microsoft is so fond of.
To create a recurring Teams meeting, you need to schedule the meeting in Teams and then open the meeting settings via Outlook.
