Virtual Appointment as a new Teams Meeting Template MC488588 · Published Dec 20, 2022
A new Teams Meeting Template, Virtual Appointment, will be added as a new template type accessible from the 'New meeting' dropdown menu in the Teams Calendar. This is a free experience that brings enhanced business-to-consumer meeting features into the lightweight and familiar Teams scheduling experience. When meeting with someone from outside of your organization, the Virtual Appointment meeting can be used to ensure the person you are meeting with has a seamless experience with the meeting from start to finish - all without having to learn new tools or leave the standard scheduling flow.
Users can use the Virtual Appointment template instead of a standard Teams meeting for meetings with external users. They can select the meeting type, fill out the tailored scheduling form, including external guests and meeting details, and then send the meeting. The external guests invited will receive a customized meeting invitation that includes key appointment details and a quick-join button, which allows users to join the meeting from anywhere - without downloading Teams - and enter a pre-appointment waiting room before the meeting begins. This provides a familiar experience to internal users and makes external user join a seamless experience.

For both, admins can use the Microsoft Teams admin center to enable/disable Praise.
With the upcoming updates, users with Viva Insights subscriptions will have the ability to share a copy of praise they send. Shared recipients will be notified via Teams and can see praise details in the Microsoft Viva Insights app in Teams.
