Implement the ability to assign static meeting IDs
Implement the ability to assign static meeting IDs to users
This feature is planned and we’ll update as we know more details.
Regarding recurring meeting invites, the meeting link is unique so you can use the same meeting link for all instances.

Static Meeting ID would be great or at least one that doesnt expire ( for long term reoccurring meetings ). What is the actual expiration date of a conference ID when created?

Just wanted to confirm that IF this feature is implemented and users dial into to an MS Teams meeting, they will be able to use the same conference id each time for different meetings from that user? Is that correct? If so, that's great because it's exactly what we need.
Our AEs currently use MS Teams with an online calendar/scheduling app and the ability to provide the same conference ID to all users who book online is critical for us. Thanks!

While I would like this feature, I would hardly call it critical. Pressing the join button from the Teams app on your phone is far easier than typing in a meeting ID, even if it is always the same meeting ID..
Hi this is a big complaint, especially from executive admins that set up meetings for their bosses. Is there an update?
It would be great to have a personal static conference ID and for standard scheduled meetings the system generates a dynamic conference ID. The advantage is that users can spontan use the personal ID for conference calls or something like this and for the standard planned meetings you have the normal process via the calendar. Other very know Meeting providers use this concept and this is really perfect for every case you need in daily business.
Any update on this pls?

4 months on and this critical function is still not implemented. According to the Teams tech I just talked to, it doesn't appear on the current Teams roadmap. Can you please tell us when Microsoft plans to get this done?

Apparently after 6 months they change!
In our use case, users have typically had their own room ID (Conference ID). If they need to hop on a meeting in a car from their cell phone, they have the toll free number and room ID memorized. With Teams, joining via cell voice instead of 4G or Wifi enables them to mobile while attending these meetings. Current users, particularly the executives, prefer not to need to look up new Conference ID numbers.
Please enable this feature, I represent a company of 400+ users and lack of this feature is very crucial to our workflow with current conferencing provider. Adding this feature will allow us to migrate all team to microsoft audio conferencing.

Our user test base with Teams was completely on-board with migrating from WebEx to MS Teams. Then they found out that personal rooms were not an option and now we are deadlocked.
Static Meeting/Conference IDs would replicate the WebEx personal room functionality and finally let us kill WebEx.
Creating a “series” team meeting in MS Outlook is useless unless the calendar item for everyone is updated with updated meeting ID or have the ability to assign a static meeting ID. Worse, the frustration employees endured over this inability before discovering the flaw has left most executive and management employees with a bitter perception of Microsoft teams and all have asked to go back to the third-party conferencing that we used prior. Until a solution is implemented creating a "series" Teams meetings in Outlook is useless.
I think static conference id is the worst possible idea - my meetings are separate and especially given the fact that there is persistent chat associated with these meetings, they should all be separate. Having one static conference with all things mingled up would be insane for me.
With respect to having weekly meetings, I am unsure why a recurring meeting is not the right solution. The meeting join link as well as the pstn conf-id would remain same.
Leslie Eastwood commented
We have weekly conference calls with up to 15 participants, both internal and external to our government, and managing changing meeting IDs will be problematic. Please implement the ability to assign a static ID to allow us to shift from another vendor to TEAMS for the weekly conference calls.

I am inputting client contact info into a folder within outlook to then share with the firm. Two questions:
1. How do I actually share the folder
2. Once I share the folder if I make changes will everyone see them? If not, can I re-share the folder?
Marty McCutchen commented
Yes, please create the function that allows clients to self schedule meetings. Similar to Calendy.
Alberto López commented
I agree, please implement.
This is a big advantage that Zoom has over Teams. Please let us know if this is on the road-map.
Michael Wells commented
I agree, static conference bridges for situation room discussions is a must. Please introduce quickly I have customers who are keen to use zoom or Cisco to replace this critical piece of functionality.
