Create a Skype Meeting using a shared mailbox (on behalf of a regular mailbox). RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Requirement: 

    Managers need to create new skype meetings using a calendar of a shared mailbox from their Outlook profiles.

    We have added "owner" permission for shared mailbox calendar using below command.


    add-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity sharedmbx:\calender -User testuser01 -AccessRights owner

    However we are getting below error.

    "The person you are scheduling on behalf is not UC enabled or there may be configuration issues with the account. Make sure you are signed in to the same account you use for Microsoft Outlook."

    When researching found below thread and it is related to Office 365.

    • Can we achieve this using a shared mailbox?
    • Do we have log in to both accounts in skype?

    • What else we need to do in-order to work this?

      Regards,

  • Hi Kavindu,

    On my knowledge, there is no option in the mailbox shared permissions to give creating Skype Meeting or something like this and delegate it to another user, I'm talking if we start from the Outlook, the only way is to configure the account in Outlook then you can send a Skype meetings.

    I don't have enough knowledge on Skype/Lync Server side, we can wait another Microsoft member to confirm.

  • Hi Mr POP,

    You can use the same account in Skype for Business and Outlook after you add Skype for Business account in Exchange Admin Center. The steps are as below:

    After you completing these steps, try again.

  • Hi Sharon,

    Thank you for the response.

    I see you have provided steps to create a mailbox for an existing user in Exchange Admin center. 

    However our requirement is to book skype meetings using a shared mailbox calendar, on behalf of another exchange mailbox. 

    Ex: There is a shared mailbox named "Administration@contoso.com" and "ManagerA@contoso.com" wants to book meetings using the calendar of "Administration@contoso.com".

    When we check Get-mailboxfolderpermission -identity Administration:\Calendar , we can see "owner" permission is there for "ManagerA".

    But still we getting the above error.

    Regards,

  • Hi Mr POP,
    In my research, if the account you sign in with Skype for Business is different than the one that you are signing for outlook, you will meet the problem.
