Phone number for Meetings with Outlook invitation
For the meeting invitation generated by Teams Meeting add-in in Outlook, the suggested phone number is pre-defined at the organization level. Can users have the option to select 1 or more other numbers to list in the meeting invite as the organizer knows where the attendees are from?

Agree - I work for a multi-national corporation and sometimes data service isn't available for mobile users so they need dial-in's. Being able to populate a list of numbers would simplify this.
It will be appreciated if organizations and users can select numbers in a list especially for global organizations.
Make this work like Zoom, and ready Talk. In a Ready Talk or zoom invite process, there is a pop up to select any of the available numbers your organization has authorized as you create the meeting invite. These can include local numbers, and toll free numbers. We have global calls with over 10 different locations and putting the local numbers into a meeting invite is a must for mobile only users who may not have internet access to locate "local numbers"
The only painful work around for this in Teams right now is to Ctrl-click the "local Numbers" link ion your meeting, find the local or toll free number on the invite and copy and paste it into your invite before you send it. Are we still living in the 90's here Microsoft? Simple thing to implement, but probably at the top of page 5 in terms of features you plan to add.
But these simple things make Teams o unusable and hated by our users who enjoy the simplicity and thoughtful features of the competitive meeting systems. So hard to get people to switch hapily when simple features just are not present in a new tool.
Will be great if at least two numbers can be choosen be included in invite like in S4B On-Premises. For example we have US branch and CZ branch which calling often and both number in invite will help users clicking "Local numbers" each time.
