Generate a QR code for the meeting URL that we send to the participants
When sending the meeting invite to the participants, to also generate a QR code in the meeting invite email so that participants can join by scanning the QR code.
This is going to be helpful if this is gonna be implemented. it will save us a lot of hassle
+1 for this in education scenarios. Teams meetings are being sent to my email address but I need to start the call on the 1st-grader's iPad and she doesn't have mail configured.

Just curious, has anyone been able to get the QR code solution to work ?
Microsoft should use their in-house short-link generator to generate a short and nice meeting link. A QR code for the meeting will be even better.
This is required because the present TEAMS meeting link is quite long and sometimes creates problems in sharing on mobile devices. Also error may occur while copying-pasting link for sharing.
Can we have a QR code for the meeting invite URL

in light of the covid 19 pandemic , we need to do everything we can to allow people to start at video call in a teams meeting room through scanning a specific room QR code - which would be mounted in a frame in the meeting room. As soon as organiser scanned the QR code, the meeting starts - this will eliminate having to touch a screen to start the meeting
I've had enquiries for "Zero Touch" joining for obvious reasons and QR codes were suggested as the solution
Currently to join a room to an existing call you need to add the room to the call using the room name, which if there is some confusion on what room it is, it can take some time to join it. It also requires confirmation on the room system screen.
It could be a lot smoother if you were able to scan a QR code on the main room screen / projector / TV that would join the room to the call. This wouldn't require a confirmation button on the room system, since the user can establish they are already in the room because they can see the unique QR code.
