Turning off Automatic Microsoft Teams Meetings Invitations in Outlook

Microsoft Outlook includes functionality to add an online Teams meeting to all new Outlook meeting invitations. Because ones meeting may not be an online meeting, this could cause confusion among participants. This functionality can be disabled within Outlook by doing the following:

  1. This setting will be found in your Outlook options:

    • In Mac OS, in the Outlook application, click Outlook in the tool bar > Preferences > Calendar > Calendar Options
    • ​​​​​​​In Windows, in the Outlook desktop client navigate to File > Options > Calendar > Calendar Options 
  2. Uncheck the option for "Add online meeting to all meetings" and then hit Ok.


​​​​​​​If this option is not displaying, open the Outlook Web App (OWA) at outlook.office.com. Click the Setting (Gear icon) > View all Outlook Settings > Calendar > Events and invitations. Now uncheck the "Add online meeting to all meetings" option and then hit Save.

If the online Teams meetings are still being included on your Outlook meeting invites, even with the option unchecked, go into the settings and “check” the option and then click to Save it. Finally go back in and uncheck the option and Save once again. This should toggle the option off.
