To create an online meeting invitation, follow these steps.

    • In the Outlook Calendar, click Online Meeting (Outlook 2007) or New Online Meeting (Outlook 2010).

    • In the Lync Online main window, in the Contacts list, select the contacts you want to invite, right-click, and then click Schedule a Meeting. In the meeting invitation, click Online Meeting.

  2. In the meeting invitation, in the To box, enter the email addresses of the people you want to invite to the meeting, separated by semicolons.

  3. In the meeting invitation, in the Subject box, type a subject for the meeting.

  4. (Optional) In the body of the meeting invitation, above the Join Online Meeting link, enter additional meeting details.
    Note Do not modify any of the existing text in the meeting invitation. Doing so may prevent people from joining the meeting.
