New recurring meetings don't appear in the Skype for Business 2016 calendar tab when it is open

Symptoms

You open the calendar tab in Microsoft Skype for Business 2016 (Click-to-Run), and then add a new recurring meeting to your Outlook calendar when the tab is opened. This meeting will not be displayed in the calendar tab until you navigate away and then back to it.

Cause

This behavior was broken by changes in a previous Skype for Business update that caused recurring meetings not to trigger a full refresh of the calendar items.

Resolution

To fix this issue, make sure that the client version is higher than 16.0.13426.20184.

To enable this fix, create a policy by using one of the following options.

  1. Create the following registry key on the client computers:

    Root: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE or HKEY_CURRENT_USER

    Key: Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Lync

    Value Type: DWORD

    Value Name: EnableCalendarTabRecurringRefresh Value Data: 0x00000001

  2. Create the following client policy entry by using the Skype for Business PowerShell:

    $x = New-CsClientPolicyEntry -Name "EnableCalendarTabRecurringRefresh" -Value "true"
    Set-CsClientPolicy -Identity "<ClientPolicyName>" -PolicyEntry @{Add=$x}

    Note When configuring via the client policy entry, a user must sign in to Skype for Business after the policy has been applied to receive the new policy information, and then sign out and sign in again for it to take effect.
