  • Hi rashddu,

    Did you get this error when you choose the “People I choose” option in Skype meeting option and try to add the user as presenter?

    Please check this article about the description of meeting option.

    https://support.office.com/en-ie/article/change-participant-settings-for-lync-meetings-cee2aa78-d878-4a63-ad33-9c249fceced9

    According it, “Note:  When you select People I choose, click Choose Presenters, and then move the participants from the Attendee to Presenters side. External invitees and distribution lists can’t be added as presenters, but you can give presenter permission to individuals when you are in the meeting.”

    If it is your case, I think it is by default about this scenario.

  • Actually i already did investigate this option which specifies we can give presenter permission to the participants after they are in the meeting.

    I also went through through the option which specifies no restriction for presenters.

    Here end user wants this option only.

    This is challenging.

  • Hi rashddu,

    Thanks for your reply.

    “Here end user wants this option only.”  -- I’m afraid it could not do with the “People I choose” option. Hope you could persuade them to try other options.
