What is dial-in conferencing

It is not always possible for meeting participants to have access to the internet at the time of the meeting.  If this is the case then you can bring the participant in using a landline phone using the methods below.

Please note:  It is not currently possible to dial a mobile phone from within Skype for Business.  If the participant needs to use a mobile phone, then (s)he can download the Skype for Business app from Google Play or Apple App Store or alternatively (s)he can dial into the meeting using the details included in their meeting invite (phone number and Conference ID).

Set up a meeting to include dial-in conferencing

‌Using dial-in conferencing for Skype for Business couldn’t be easier.  Instead of having to visit several sites to schedule the meeting, audio bridge, or other elements, you simply:

1.Open your calendar in Outlook.
2.Click New Skype Meeting.


That’s it!  Your meeting is scheduled and your audio bridge is ready to go.  Your participant just needs to call the number provided in the body of the text and provide the Conference ID followed by the # key and they will be connected to the meeting (audio only).
