Teams 'Book A Room' Template - How to include Teams meeting in Outlook calendar reservation

 

Hello all!

 

I have a booking room app (uses the "Book A Room" template) that has the following interface allowing users to book rooms at an office:

When a user clicks the "Book" button, it will reserve a meeting in Outlook for the user for the room that they selected. However, when you click into that meeting, it does not include a Microsoft Teams invite option. I would like to include the Microsoft Teams meeting invite option within the original Outlook meeting scheduled.

 

In my attempts to find a solution, for the OnSelect of my "Book" button, I included the following MicrosoftTeams.CreateMeeting() code ... but instead of including the Microsoft Teams meeting invite option within the original Outlook meeting scheduled, it generates a new, separate meeting.

Here's what my Outlook calendar looks like when I book 1 room (notice how I get 2 invites):

*When I click into "Justin Harville's Booking: L1302: Justin Harville", it doesn't have a Teams invite attached. This is the meeting generated from the 'Book A Room' template.

*When I click into "Simple Test 4" (which was the meeting generated from my code), there is a Teams invite attached. This is the meeting generated from my code in the OnSelect of the "Book" button.

 

How would I include the Microsoft Teams meeting invite option within the original Outlook meeting ("Justin Harville's Booking: L1302: Justin Harville") scheduled when I book a room, instead of creating a brand new meeting ("Simple Test 4") that has a Teams invite?

 

Thank you!

Hi @jharville ,

 

I'm afraid there is no way to invite new attendees into an exist teams meeting. The solution is to invite more attendees in Outlook.

 

Hope this helps.

Hi Jeffer,

 

Thank you for the response. The goal isn't to invite new attendees to an existing Teams meeting ... but more so when a user clicks "Book" (to book a room using the "Book A Room" template), to add a "Teams meeting option" to the existing Outlook calendar invite that's sent out. Right now, the Outlook calendar invite doesn't contain a Teams meeting option.
