I have recently purchased 2 x Group 700's with the Microsoft Interop Licence enabled for Skype for Business interoperability using O365. I cant find much information on the additional features enabled by the software - specifically the API's?
I am not sure if they are public, however I kniow you can 'click to join' meeting using the Polycom Touch panel, and I would like to program this funcitonality into a 3rd party control system (Crestron). The Group series APIs are all available, however I have no information on the 'join now' outlook integration.
If you can share any documentation with me would be appreciated.
Short answer is no. There is no 1:1 match of the Polycom Touch Control style join buttons in the API.
Long answer is kinda. some individuals have gotten close with extensive custom programming. Below are a link to a couple examples that take advantage of parsed calendar info. the thread from /r/crestron has example Crestron touch panel and program files. The video is at least a proof of concept. Both still require more then a single button press but further programming could likely adapt to make it a single press.
Reddit thread with example files
For our own Crestron controlled Group Series systems we have a very, very stupid join button that emulates the RF remote button presses to select the button (home, up, enter). It is extremely limited and causes more issues than it solves. It does not do well with meetings that don't have a join button and meetings that are back to back (i.e. someone shows up five minutes early and the calendar still shows the previous meetings join button).
If you find something or come up with another solution please let me know.
Cheers - that Crestron module works really well. Perfect.
Anyway you can assist with letting me know how you got the "Join Meeting" button to work. Im currently integrating a "One Touch Join" functionality with a Crestron TSW-760, Pro3, and Polycom Group Series 500. I have been able to get the Skype meetings to populate on the touch panel using the module above, but when I select the meeting and hit join nothing happens.
My thought is the dial string is not being recognized or not in the right sequence?
