Edit Meeting Types and Availability

The default meeting type is a 30 minute online meeting using Microsoft Teams. You can edit the default meeting type, add new types, and customize your availability for each type. For example, you could create a meeting type called "Office Hours" for 15-minute meetings during specific hours on Thursday. The following options are available when configuring meeting types:

  • Unique meeting type name (for example, "Office Hours")
  • Meeting duration
  • Minimum and maximum lead times
  • Location (for a Microsoft Teams video call, enable Online Meeting)
  • Description
  • Availability (use regular hours configured in Outlook or customize availability by date range and day)

Note: To share a link to a particular meeting type, click Copy URL (paper and pen icon) beside the desired type.
