      2. Click to select the check box next to the add-in, and then click OK.

        The New Online Meeting button should now be available in Calendar View, and the Online Meeting button should be available when you create a new calendar item.
    • If the add-in is in the Disabled Application add-ins list, follow these steps:
      1. In the Manage drop-down list at the bottom of the dialog box, click Disabled Items, and then click Go.
      2. Select the add-in, and then click Enable.
      3. Restart Outlook, and then verify that the add-in is displayed in the Add-ins dialog box.

  1. In Outlook 2007, click Help, and then click Disabled Items.

  4. In Event Viewer, view the Application log to see whether an error was recorded for Office Outlook, for Lync 2010, or for the Online Meeting Add-in for Microsoft Lync 2010.

To resolve symptom 2

  • Don't edit a specific occurrence of the Lync Online meeting. Instead, edit the whole series.
  • If you have to change just one occurrence of the meeting, you must create a new meeting to replace the one occurrence or change the whole series.
  • If the error occurs for a meeting that isn't part of a larger series, delete the meeting, and then re-create it.

To resolve symptom 3


Verify that the user is provisioned correctly for the Audio Conferencing Provider (ACP). Verify that the information for that user in the Dial-In Conferencing Control Panel exactly matches the information that the ACP provided.

For more information about how to troubleshoot ACP provisioning issues, go to the following Microsoft websites:
Configure dial-in conferencing
Set up dial-in conferencing so people can join meetings by phone
