Scheduling a MSteams meeting in outlook

Occasional Contributor

I'm using Windows 10 Home and outlook 365 and Teams (Free). In outlook when I try to use the "New Teams Meeting" button in the Home menu bar I get " We couldn't schedule the meeting. Please try again later". Is this not possible? If so then I guess I can delete the Outlook teams add-in? 


If I try to use Teams , I can schedule a meeting and are presented with two options:

Copy meeting invitation

Share via google calendar.


There's not an option to share via outlook calendar. 


My work around is to simply create a meeting and email people the link 5 mins before we start. Not very elegant but it works.

Hi David,


To solve this problem you will need to active the plug in.

  • In Outlook, choose File and then Options.
  • Select the Add-ins tab of Outlook Options dialog box.
  • Confirm that Microsoft Teams Meeting Add-in for Microsoft Office is listed in the Active Application Add-ins list
  • If the Teams Meeting Add-in is listed in the Disabled Application Add-ins list, select COM Add-ins in Manage and then select Go…
  • Set the checkbox next to Microsoft Teams Meeting Add-in for Microsoft Office.
  • Choose OK on all dialog boxes and restart Outlook.
Hi, the Teams meeting Outlook add-in isn’t supported in your config.

Yes I'm coming round to that conclusion too. Thank you for the confirmation.
Thank you Aghiad

Your instructions were very clear and easy to follow but sadly the teams add-in was already enabled so the problem remains I'm afraid.

Many thanks for trying to help.
