Is Outlook scheduling a Teams meeting for every new appointment in your calendar? Here’s a quick fix –

With the popularity of video conferencing during the recent quarantine and many companies now allowing some of their employees to work remotely, popular applications like Zoom, Teams and Webex are a commonly used tool. However, I recently noticed that whenever I entered a new calendar event on Outlook, say a dentist appointment or a reminder for my car’s oil change, Outlook would also create a Microsoft Teams meeting as the default location. Obviously, it would be quite a challenge for the mechanic to change my car’s oil via Teams!

However, there is a quick fix.

In Outlook, go to File > Options > Calendar and uncheck the box titled “Add online meetings to all meetings”

Now you are the master of your own meeting locations again!
