Skype for Business: Invite a user (Stout or external) to a Skype meeting via the web client
How to host and invite an external user to a Skype for Business meeting
You can host Skype meetings and have conversations with both internal and external (non-Stout) users.
- Log into the Office 365 Outlook Web App (OWA)
- Open Calendar from the App Launcher (Office 365)
- Click "New" to create a new appointment
- Click "Skype meeting"
- Add the user’s email address (you don’t need their Skype username) under “People” on the right.
- Fill in meeting details
- Click “Send”
The recipient receives the email invitation, clicks the included link, and can join as a “guest” after they are prompted to install an add-on. We encourage users to practice this process once or twice prior to an actual meeting to ensure the event goes smoothly.
