    We’re pleased to announce that all meeting join entry points have been addressed in Outlook for Windows and Mac.
    - For customers keeping current on the monthly release channel, this update has been released.
    - Customers keeping current on the semi-annual release channel for Outlook will get this this Summer, with a gradual roll out scheduled to begin in mid-July.

    Skype does this already - why can't Teams do this? In fact, when I get a reminder for a meeting, I can't even just join the meeting that way - I'm forced to make 4 clicks on 3 different screens. With Skype, I just merely click "Join" when the reminder pops up - and I join the meeting.

    I constructed a JPG image (1250 x 1250 pixels ) that compares the process of the two for joining a meeting from a reminder. It's the same thing by the way if you go into Calendar.

    From comments below - yes it's a bit simpler from calendar, but it's still multiple steps and you still get the question about whether to use Edge or the App. If you have the app, there should be some setting to say "always use the app for meetings".

    Clicking on the join button in an Outlook reminder takes you to the browser to launch Teams today. The work to bypass the browser and directly launch Teams is being worked on. We’ll update when we have more details.

    I have a number of comments about this ...

    1 - There are other posts just like this - they should be combined - I replied to one and it's not this one and there were another 84+ people at the time who up-voted this exact thing. It's my take a moderator of the MS Teams User Voice should combine them into one large one in order to accurately gauge the number of people requesting this. I can tell you my entire IT organization at my place wants this.

    2 - I appreciate the workarounds posted - but I have to agree with the sentiment of one person who wanted some pretty drastic action taken, I'll voice it a bit softer here to help out - when one is designing a replacement system for a previous system, one should try to make sure that all of the features are covered OR that there are plans for implementing that feature. I do think that this was a huge miss by the MS Teams design team and I'm going to include a picture that I made for this same issue on another thread showing the difference between the two.

    3 - Thank you Alex for the update on this issue and that it's being worked on. I do like Teams and I think in some cases it's an improvement over SfB, but it still needs some "finish" in order to get companies to switch.
