Customize a meeting

You can add a Yammer feed or Bing Pulse to your meeting so your audience can participate during the event and you can gauge their involvement and satisfaction.

You can also create a custom URL for troubleshooting and support that is specific to your meeting participants. 

Remove past meetings

You can send past meetings you no longer want to the recycle bin. When you remove a past meeting, the meeting details and all meeting content goes to the recycle bin. (The ability to permanently delete a meeting is not yet available.) Removing the meeting will delete all content associated with the meeting, including attendee report, Q&A history, and recordings. External content, such as from Yammer, Microsoft Pulse, and network usage reports, will not be deleted. 
  1. Browse to the Skype Meeting Broadcast portal, and then click the meeting you want to remove. 

  2. At the top of the Meeting details page, click Delete.

    Click Delete to permanently delete a past meeting

  3. To confirm you want to delete the meeting, click Delete.

    Note: Because the ability to permanently delete a meeting is not yet available, the Delete button sends the meeting and associated content to the recycle bin.
