Creating and Sharing a Link to a Teams Meeting

DO NOT USE FOR SCHEDULING CLASS LECTURES

Creating a meeting link this way for remote lectures will prevent your students from being able to access the recordings. To schedule course lecture meetings, please use the class team that has been auto created for each of your courses. We’ve also created a guide for scheduling online meetings for lectures with your class team.

If you do not already have the Microsoft Teams application installed on your computer, please see this guide for download and installation instructions.

  1. In the Teams application, select the Calendar tab from the sidebar, then click the New Meeting button
    The New Meeting Details page will pop up.
  2. On the new meeting page, do the following:
    • Enter a clear title for your meeting (if it is for a class, include the the course name and section).
    • Enter any email address in the Add required attendees box. At least one address needs to be invited to your meeting to create a shareable link to the meeting. You can use your personal UVM email address if desired.
    • Set the date and time for the meeting.
    • Enter a brief description for the meeting.
    • Click Send once all necessary information has been filled out.

  3. After sending the meeting, click on it on your calendar in Teams.
    This will open the meeting details page.
  4. In the description field, there will now be a Join Microsoft Teams Meeting link. Right click on the link, then select Copy Link.
  5. Share the link with colleagues through email or other means.
