Virtual Appointment is a new meeting type in Microsoft Teams that lets you easily connect with someone outside of your organization, giving them a seamless easy-to-use experience from start to finish. This type of meeting is great for things like interviews, mentorship sessions, or many types of customer meetings across financial, retail, healthcare, and other services.
Microsoft has introduced Virtual Appointments, a new type of meeting accessible from within Teams Calendar, which offers enhanced business-to-consumer meeting features. This feature is designed to ensure a seamless experience for external guests who are not part of the organization. The customized meeting invitation includes appointment details and a quick-join button, enabling users to join the meeting from anywhere without downloading Teams. External guests can enter a pre-appointment waiting room before the meeting begins. The Virtual Appointment feature is integrated into the familiar and lightweight Teams scheduling experience, so users don’t need to learn new tools or leave the standard scheduling flow.
