    Allow setting fixed or static Conference ID on a per user basis

    Allow setting fixed or static Conference ID on a per user basis.
    Either make it a selection box in the Admin Portal UI or via PowerShell.
    Some users like having only one ID to distribute to meeting attendees.
    Easier for them to schedule meetings in advance or for impromptu if the ID is constant.

      All my executives need this. I tried to convince them of the benefits of having dynamic IDs, but they don't care. Please re-enable the feature

    • Cyang commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

      This is a very basic feature for every other conference service. Please re-enable static conference ID feature. As an admin, I am aware of the security concern.

      Without the Static ID this is useless for some users who are always on road and need to jump on conf call here and there without prior planning

      Please add this feature. Dynamic IDs causes confusion for users who want to have ad-hoc meetings

    • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

      I am almost permanently on the road, globally, 3G (or4G) does not exist everywhere.
      Often I have to open a phone bridge without web access - why is this not possible

      This service is useless to me

      I understand the risk of having people who were not invited to a meeting being able to join them, however this is not a serious concern and we were previously able to choose not to use the static number for one-off meetings anyway. Users were able to memorize their Conference ID so that dialing in to a meeting was easy from a cell phone. Removing this feature seems to be an attempt to protect us from something that we didn't ask for protection from.

      This feature is an absolute must. We understand the concept behind dynamic ids but the inconvenience is just too great. We'll explore other options until this feature is restored.

      Very Important feature as I schedule hundreds of meetings in outlook and use templates. Having the ID change each time I add Skype requires changing the template and adds the possibility of error. Also, many people join remotely and have the ID memorized (no longer possible).

      WHY is not a feature? Cmon! We should be able to set this to STATIC. This is a feature of EVERY other conferencing service.

      just signed up for the 90 day trial and within 2 days my users started asking about static ID's. What !? they took those away? Back to Intercall I go and when MS cuts off 3rd party i guess Skype will take a back burner to audio only conferences. I thought MS wanted people to use their products not scare them away.

      We have tried both and by far the static ID works best for our users especially when they have reoccurring meetings and they make modifications to those meeting.

    • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

      Please add static ID like most conferencing tool have. Idealy give the choice at user level for static or dynamic.
      Static ID is more useful and easy to implement than dynamic ID therefore there is no reason dynamic ID should remain unless it was designed to get users mad at Skype for Business and select a more user-friendly conferencing tool

    • Greg Knight commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

      When you have regular international participants from non-English speaking countries it adds a level of complexity to PBX Conferencing when each meeting they call in for has a different Conference ID from the same person. In addition by having Static conference codes, each user can have their 'own' live line and can just quickly get people on a call and not have to go through the process of creating a meeting and scheduling.

      Where does anyone see the ability to set it through Powershell? The following note is in Microsoft Docs (Link referenced below):

      If your conferencing provider is Microsoft, your users' conference IDs are set to Dynamic Only by default. Unfortunately, there's no ability to change it in the Skype for Business Admin Center or using Windows Powershell to become static, as this is now unsupported. Conference IDs are only automatically set only for Skype for Business and Microsoft Teams users enabled for Audio Conferencing.

      In https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/skypeforbusiness/audio-conferencing-in-office-365/reset-a-conference-id-for-a-user

      Please add this as an option. We just cancelled our audioconferencing with you, because this is the 21st century, and I don't want to use Powershell to manipulate a function that should be a core feature. I'm running a small business, and don't have time for this hack.

      The powershell command worked for me, however, it does not show up in the meeting in invite. You can still create a static conference ID and use it with the local number. In essence, you can give everyone a separate ID for conf calls outside of Skype. If they use Skype (probably to share screens), they can use the dynamic one or remove it and put in the static one. The leaders PIN works for both.

      Looking into the MS service myself, and I can't believe this isn't available. Especially with MS announcing they will no longer support 3rd party audio conferencing starting in 2019.

    • jts commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

      This can be done, you need to do it through the Powershell. If won't set it for a meeting in the calendar, but you can use it for an audio conference.
