In one of my environments there is an executive decision that’s enabled the announcing of meeting joiners and leavers. I find this very disruptive when folks drop in and out, not to mention the slight latency in the announcement.

You can disable this announcement within Outlook.


  1. Simply fire up a new Skype Meeting
Lync Meeting

2. Click on meeting options

Lync Meeting Options

3. Uncheck the box Announce when people enter or leave

Disable Announce when people enter and leave

4. Click Remember Settings
