2. Verify Meeting Provider if Teams Meeting is Missing in Outlook

If you do not see the Teams meeting option in Outlook Events and instead see the Skype meetings option, it could be because your organization does not use Teams as the default meeting provider or you do not have a Microsoft Office 365 work or school account.

To verify the meeting provider, launch Outlook and click on the gear icon (Settings) on the top right. Then, click on Calendar in the left menu and select Events and Invitations on the right.

In the Events and Invitations window, check if you have selected the correct account in the These settings are applied at the account level section. Next, go to the Events You Create section and ensure that the meeting provider is set to Microsoft Teams. If you see Skype meetings instead, you cannot schedule a Teams meeting in Outlook.

Why Can't I Schedule a Teams Meeting Through Outlook?

If you are unable to schedule a Teams meeting through Outlook, it could be because the Teams Meeting add-in is disabled. To fix this, open Outlook and navigate to File > Options > Add-ins. Select COM Add-ins and click Go. Check the box that says Microsoft Teams Meeting Add-in for Microsoft Office and click OK. Make sure the add-in remains enabled for seamless scheduling.
