Enable static conference ID's per user in Skype for Business Conferencing
There are many situations when our mobile workforce are not at their computer and want to quickly jump on a conference call without a scheduled meeting. There are other situations where it is useful to have the same conference ID from week to week for example for weekly recurring meetings.
Other conference services allow users to be assigned a static conference ID for these purposes. This may be a show stopper feature for us as it is extremely inconvenient to have to set up a conference call with a dynamic ID for every way we use conference calling.
I want my Red M&Ms and Static Conference IDs

I understand the risk of having people who were not invited to a meeting being able to join them, however this is not a serious concern and we were previously able to choose not to use the static number for one-off meetings anyway. Users were able to memorize their Conference ID so that dialing in to a meeting was easy from a cell phone. Removing this feature seems to be an attempt to protect us from something that we didn't ask for protection from.

Being able to know your ID to send out instructions is important to us since we have users who don't use Outlook to schedule meetings. Without this feature, we can not use the audio conferencing features.
A static conference ID was an option, and now I'm not sure why it was removed. I understand it is easier to secure when the number changes, but we have quite a few use cases where we need a static conference ID. Leave the default as dynamic and let the administrators decide if static is needed.
Please add static ID like most conferencing tool have. Idealy give the choice at user level for static or dynamic.
Static ID is more useful and easy to implement than dynamic ID therefore there is no reason dynamic ID should remain unless it was designed to get users mad at Skype for Business and select a more user-friendly conferencing tool
Customers are asking for static conference I.D's so this options have to be added soon. someone have to work on it.
Please add the option for static conference id numbers.
