You may have noticed that all meetings created in Outlook default to include a Teams meeting link.

Follow the steps below to prevent meetings scheduled in Outlook from defaulting to Teams:

  1. Go to

  2. Click Settings (gear icon) in the top-right corner of the webpage.


  3. Click “View all Outlook settings


  4. Select Calendar > Events and Invitations.


  5. Uncheck “Add online meeting to all meetings
  6. Click Save

You may need to close and reload the Outlook Application for the change to apply.
