How will you add a meeting into the Microsoft team?

However, to do that you maybe want to be using FindTime, because it will help you a lot in it.

Therefore, FindTime is really good for the meeting who has more than 4 people. After agreeing with the terms and conditions, FindTime will by default send an invite to all the participants.

After choosing the option of conducting the meeting, Add-in will schedule your meeting with or through Skype for Business or Microsoft Teams. Therefore, whichever is set by you as default it will schedule accordingly.
