You can use the terminal command..

 

defaults write com.microsoft.Outlook DisableSkypeMeeting -bool TRUE

 

.. or create a configuration profile and addressing the com.microsoft.outlook domain with the boolean option set to TRUE.

I ran this command in terminal but still Skype Meeting button available in outlook.

Did you run the command as root or admin with sudo?

I only paste below command in terminal

defaults write com.microsoft.Outlook DisableSkypeMeeting -bool TRUE

try it as root user with the following steps:

  • close Outlook
  • run the command (as root user)
sudo defaults write com.microsoft.Outlook DisableSkypeMeeting -bool TRUE
  • open Outlook

Great article. Very well explained. Thanks for the share.

I believe this can be accomplished with a Configuration Profile. 

Application & Customer Settings > External Applications > com.microsoft.Outlook > Disable Skype for Business meeting support > True.

This uses the same DisableSkypeMeeting key.

What is the location of this Configuration Profile in Mac?

I don't remember when it was added but maybe 10.25.2 of JAMF.

 

Computers > Configuration Profile > New > Application and Custom Setttings > External Applications > Add > Choose a source > Jamf Repository > com.microsoft.Outlook 

 

Preference Domain Properties > Disable Skype for Business meeting support
