Is it possible to remove "Call me at" option when users open "Meet Now"? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey folks. I was wondering if it is possible to remove the following:

    Basically our Skype deployment is currently 100% IP, we have no voice lines currently so obviously we cannot dial out. So if someone selects the "Call me at" option it will understandably fail. Is there a way to remove that via something server side? I realize it MIGHT be possible to deploy some sort of registry tweak via GPO to the clients but we will eventually be rolling out dial-in capabilities so I don't want to have to deal with rolling back that change later if I were to do it client side unless there's a convenient ADMX template setting I could implement. Any thoughts?I tried a Set-CsConferencePolicy -EnableDialInCOnferencing $False but it did not change anything. Based off of 

    http://blog.insidelync.com/2015/08/enabling-skype-for-business-users-to-join-a-conference-via-call-me-at/

    I do not think this can be changed but i would like to see if someone can confirm. Thanks!

  • You can disable callout for online meeting for anonymous user and for user which are not enterprise voice enabled.

    It is always enable for enterprise voice users.

    It will be configured on the conference policy for the users.

  • Thank you for the response but I am still scratching my head. Let me explain. i followed your post (I believe) and Here is part of the results for a Get-CsUser for my testing account:

    So you can see that this user account is definitely not Enterprise voice enabled. For the conferencing policy, please see next screenshot for a Get-CsConferencingPolicy:

    I believe your previously mentioned conditions have been satisfied, yet this account still sees the 'Call me at" option. It's really not the end of the world if we have to tell our users "That button isn't going to work for about another year, just don't click it" But if I truly have the option to make the option invisible for my users that are not enterprise voice enabled (which is currently nobody), that's what I would prefer. Please let me know if i am missing anything with the above configurations or if I have just misunderstood and this is not possible. Thanks again!

  • Hi Brolide

    From my point of view, this option depends on Lync Client mainly. So we can try to modify the registry from personal PC, but it’s hard to achieve the goal directly or quickly from the Lync Server side.

    I guess that you already found following post:

    Just for your reference. Hope the reply helpful to you.
