Thanks, that makes sense. I'll pass on those suggestions.

Subject: Re: Teams links in meetings created on someone else's calendar?
There is a technical issue that prevents users from creating a Teams meetings on behalf of someone else. I'm sure SAA could give more details, but I believe this has to do with UVM running Exchange on-premise, Teams being an O365 cloud service, and there not being a simple way to get this functionality with this configuration. There are ways to make this work, but I don't believe we're at a point to take on these challenges at this very moment (someone from SAA can correct me if I'm wrong).
The current recommendations we've seen for working around this issue are:
1. Ask your admin assistant create the meeting on behalf whomever as they normally would, but have the owner of account convert the meeting to a Teams meeting by opening the meeting and then using the "Teams meeting" button in Outlook to generate and attach the Teams meeting link.
2. Ask your admin assistant to create a separate meeting as themselves, generate the Teams meeting link, copy that link info and paste it into the meeting that they create on behalf of someone else.
3. Alternatively, this functionality does work when using Outlook paired with the Office365 license on macOS (this is news to me as of today, but I was able to confirm it works when testing things out with a colleague)
We understand this isn't an ideal solution, but it is what we've been recommending for now.

How can someone who has permissions to create meetings on someone else's calendar include Teams links in those meetings? Here's the question from our admin assistant:
"When I create a meeting on my calendar, I am able to click the Teams meeting button at the top and it will create a link in the notes. Because I have permission to create meetings in Gary's calendar, I would like to be able to add the Teams link to his meetings as well, but it won't let me."
She's done a bunch of Googling and found other people with the same problem but no solutions. We'd hoped that switching from web Outlook to desktop Outlook would give her more options, but she's still not able to create these links in our boss's meetings.
Does anyone have any ideas for her? She's more experienced in Outlook than I am, so I don't have any suggestions.
