personal meeting room
I have been using gotomeeting and zoom for a while and both provide a "personal meeting room" link that I can put in my signature. I can tell anyone I need to meet with (internal or external) to click the link in my signature to meet now and they will get put into a lobby until I start up my meeting. I also get notified if someone is sitting in my lobby waiting to start a meeting. This would be the final feature we need to switch over to Teams.
A persistent meeting URL as in the WebEx Personal Room is an excellent and needed idea.
I will add to this that "Instant Meeting via Link" is a hard requirement. As a user of WebEx, I have a 'Personal Meeting Room', and a static link assigned to me, which I can send out via e-mail, IM, etc. Frequently I'm talking on the phone with multiple companies and need to initiate an ad hoc meeting at LIGHTNING SPEED. (And no, we're not already on a scheduled conference call with a WebEx set up.) Being able to send everyone a static link and instantly create a meeting is crucial. Right now, it's too many clicks to get that done in Teams. Don't make me think that much. Just gimme the link. Thanks guys!
Have you tried scheduling a meeting and just copying that link and then just reusing that one over and over? Maybe you need to schedule it for a long time (to get it out of the way you could put it in an extra calendar).
