This is absolutely needed, and I can't believe I need to come here and even request this. This seems like just a complete oversight or just a completely half backed product SKU What's the point of having an Audio Conference License attached to the "Teams Meeting Room" license, if there is no way for a user to even schedule the use of the Conference Bridge? This seems like it would be easily resolvable. If you schedule a Meeting where the Location is a Room that has a "Teams Meeting Room" license associated with it just have a check box in Outlook and Teams Meeting Room creation dialog that appears and says "Add Teams Meeting Room Audio Conference Details"
I reached out to MSFT support on this, and there recommendation is to have an Admin figure out the Meeting Room's Conference Bridge Settings. Publish those details somewhere that your users can access, and then have them copy and paste the details into their Invites whenever they want to use the Conference Bridge. So if I have a business with 20 conference Rooms, I need to basically build create a internal webpage or something that lists all these details and expect users to remember where to access these details, and hope the copy and paste the correct Bridge info for the Correct Room. Just ridiculous, but it seems like a lot of the Teams stuff is putting the cart before the horse, and just release it and start selling licensing, then we'll go back later and figure out how to actually make this product work in a useful way. Extremely frustrating.
The team is at work on this feature. We will update you when we have more details. Thanks!iKnowTech commented
I can't believe I even have to vote for this request. The fact that isnt built into the product at release is basically nearing incompetence on MSFT's part. I'm also finding I can't have a simple general voicemail box without additional licensing which is again just mind boggling. Already regretting pushing clients towards this product.
