Join Teams work meetings from Microsoft Teams (free) and vice versa

Microsoft Teams (Free) users can currently join Teams for work (or school) meetings only as guests, which requires them to use a browser and results in a sub-optimal experience. The new feature rolling out will allow these users to join Teams for work (or school) meetings in one click, without being redirected to the browser or asked to fill in their name/surname. They will also be able to continue collaborating with the meeting organizer and other participants via meeting chat after the meeting.  The feature will work in the opposite way as well, so Teams for work (or school) will just as easily be able to join meetings hosted by a Teams Free user with one click.

LineURI still a part of the user after removal

Ever been in my shoes;
About to enable a user for enterprise voice, but you're not allowed as the number is already in use?
Only problem is; You could swear the number isn't in use any more, as you removed a user with that number just a few days ago. With the exact same number.....

Well, here is something I discovered in a deployment at a customer site:
When you remove enterprise voice from a user, you do NOT remove the LineURI property from the user. So when you try to reuse the same number, it is still listed as in use.

You have to remove the assigned number prior to disabling the enterprise voice feature on a user, for it to truly be freed.

What was that? You don't remember which user you edited yesterday (or a few days ago)?
Here is quick tip. Launch powershell, and type the command: "Get-CsUser | ft -Property name, LineURI" This will give you a list off all of your CS users, and their corresponding phone numbers.

Just look for the number you are trying to add to another user, and identify to which user it already belongs to. Then move over to the control panel, locate the user, enable it for voice, remove the number, and disable the voice again...

Good tip. You can also use PowerShell to remove the LineURI at the same time you disable Enterprise Voice by running a command like this:

Set-CsUser “Ken Myer” –EnterpriseVoiceEnabled $False –LineURI $null

That will disable the user (Ken Myer in this case) and remove the LineURI.
Thanks cspshell, I'll keep that in mind, and remind my customers of why Pshell is soooo much better ;)
