Having Microsoft Teams as the online meetings system when scheduling meetings
Instead of scheduling Skype meetings we would like to use Teams as the online meeting system
We heard your feedback and have rolled out the functionality!
Please read this support articles for more details. (https://support.office.com/en-us/article/scheduling-meetings-with-findtime-4dc806ed-fde3-4ea7-8c5e-b5d1fddab4a6)
I came across the same issue. We cannot set Teams to be the default in our tenant at this time so we are in island mode. I tried to get this to work many ways but had no success. I opened a ticket with Microsoft with the Office 365 team and they found this to not work with Teams either. The 3rd tech I spoke to had a tenant that was in Teams only mode and FindTime still scheduled it in SFB online. This app in theory is great but serves no use for most of us that want to use Teams.
The link you added does not provide any help regarding implementing Teams functionality for Findtime. This link attempts to help, but I still think is insufficient. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/teams-add-in-for-outlook#teams-meeting-add-in-in-and-findtime-for-outlook

I updated the Online Meeting URL on the settings so it moved it directs it to TEAMS, but it still sets as Skype For Business - what am I doing wrong?
For me its working pretty well and does exactly what I am expecting it to do. The support article here:
When Online Meeting is selected, FindTime will schedule a Skype for Business or Microsoft Teams meeting.
FindTime will use whichever has been set by your organization as the default online meeting channel.
so maybe ylou should check your settings and make sure you have it all configured as advised.

Same issue than others, Skype details are empty and it is still scheduling online meetings with SFB...
Deleted, removed, uninstalled FindTime. Put it back, no Skype info stored in the dashboard - it schedules Skype meetings
Why is it taking so long to fight such a small issue? Why can't I use Teams for online meetings? When will I be able to expect a choice between SfB and Teams for online meetings set in FindTime?

This isn't working. My org only has Teams and FindTime isn't inserting the contact info into the meeting. We are on a Gov license.

As mention in the admin feedback, you have to follow Step 8 in the support article : https://support.office.com/en-us/article/scheduling-meetings-with-findtime-4dc806ed-fde3-4ea7-8c5e-b5d1fddab4a6
"Note: If you saved a Skype for Business setting in your dashboard, FindTime will use that instead of Microsoft Teams. If you want to use Microsoft Teams, delete the Skype for Business setting in your dashboard."
You will find your Dashboard here : https://findtime.microsoft.com/UserDashboard
then click on "Settings"

this says complete but all I get is Skype meetings. It ain't done until it's done. What is your definition of done?
Daniel Tshin commented
I'm also in Teams mode, and FindTime still schedules Skype Online (Skype for Business) meetings. I'm looking on how to "delete the Skype for Business setting in your dashboard". In my Dashboard, it says "No Skype info". Where else should I be looking to delete my SfB setting?

I'm in Teams only mode and still FindTime schedules Skype Online meetings and not Teams. When can I expect the feature described in the Support articel?

This must be a top priority. I haven't touched Skype for months at this point, except for rare customer scenarios. Without Teams support, I won't even use FindTime, too much confusion in switching conf call details.
Interestingly enough I had things switch on me. When I started using FindTime, it was scheduling Teams meetings as I desired, but out of nowhere, it just started scheduling Skype for Business Meetings...

Same issue as Tony Lane too. One of my users reported that FindTime defaults to Teams for them (and not other users within our org - yet). We need consistency and be able to use Skype over Teams at this stage. Any pointers as to how we can have more control on this?
Alex Dean commented
I have the same issue as Tony.
I was able to add Skype settings under General Settings, but....
it also asked me for a conference id. so when I added one for my meet-now setup it obviously did not work once it was scheduled...
Going to try to add my meetnow url without the conference id
Tony Lane commented
Seems I have the opposite issue to many postings here. Since the Feb update, when I use FindTime from Outlook it defaults to a Teams meeting. Since our org limits screen sharing functionality in Teams, I still need to use Skype for a while. How about giving us the option for Teams or Skype? Then of course, using FindTime from Teams makes perfect sense.
Timeline on this change would be much appreciated.
is there a timeline as to when Teams will be included in FindTime. I don't use Skype any longer and need to resend every invite I to create my Teams meeting. Double the work.
My organization uses Teams meeting, so I would like FindTime to use the Teams invitation I added in my outlook appointment/meeting. Right now, when you click "insert into email" in FindTime, it does not include the Teams invite in the email.
