How to turn off MS Teams Meeting to all meetings globally

Jean Wu 1 Reputation point


Recently Teams meeting will automatically inject when send invitation. All company users involved.
We already know user could go to their settings to cancel this default meeting from client side.


Is there admin control to globally turn it on/off by default for all users in that organization? It's so confuzing because we could not tell everyone to turn off this setting manually.

    @Jean Wu ,

    Is there admin control to globally turn it on/off by default for all users in that organization?

    Sure. As an administrator, you can turn off Teams meeting feature in Outlook client from Microsoft Teams admin center > Meetings: Meeting policies > enter into Global(org-wide default) policy (please make sure that all your users are assigned this policy) > turn off Outlook add-in.


    If you want to turn off Teams meeting completely, please turn off the four options as below:

    As i understand this, this would deactivate the possibility to schedule Teams-Meetings in Outlook, ist this correct?
    We don't want to turn off the teams meetings globally.
    Our problem is, that its automaticlly insertet in every new Meeting that is generatet. But not all Meetings are OnlineMeetings.

    We do not find a solution to turn of de automatic-instertion.

    We acutally still have Outlook 2016 with an OnPrem-ExchangeServer. We already use Teams, OneDrive etc. with Azure.

    • There ist no Option to turn of as it is in later Versions of Outlook
    • Powershell-Command OnlineMeetingsEnabledByDefault does not help
    • I found a Registry-Key, but at this time its also not helpfull

    Do you have any other Suggestions?

    Thank you in advance for any answers
    regards Monica

    we have the same behavior with Outlook 2013 clients and an Exchange 2019 on-premise, the options or powershell command line are only for Online. We didn't have this behavior at the beginning of last week.......and we restarted our DAG Exchange. If you have an idea.....

    We have the same issue since Teams updated to Version

    I tried "Set-OrganizationConfig -OnlineMeetingsByDefaultEnabled $false" without success

    I also tried it with my mailbox:

    "Set-MailboxCalendarConfiguration -Identity -OnlineMeetingsByDefaultEnabled $false"

    without success. I have verified in that in the option to make every meeting online is disabled.
