Turn Off Teams Meetings by Default in MS Outlook

Avoid accidental log-ins to Teams meetings when hosting a Zoom session.

A common issue with scheduling events in Outlook Calendar is that a Teams online meeting is created by default. You can change this setting to create a Zoom link by default or turn off any online meeting by default. You can then choose whether to add an online meeting, and if so, choose Zoom or Teams.

To turn off the default online meeting option:

  1. Go to the “Settings” icon in Outlook Calendar [Settings icon - gear wheel]
  2. Select “Events and invitations”
  3. Under “Events you create”, uncheck the box next to “Add online meeting to all meetings”
  4. OR change the default online meeting to “Zoom”
  5. Click the “Save” button to confirm your choice
