Skype for Business policy setting - guest access to meetings

Scenario description

If your organization regularly invites external users to a meeting (also called conferences), you can modify the meeting configuration settings to allow users external to your organization (anonymous users) to automatically join a conference session without requiring admission approval. It also removes the ‘lobby’ function from meetings.

Meeting configuration settings help dictate the type of meetings that users can create, and also control how (or if) anonymous users and dial-in conferencing users can join these meetings. 

This is one of the settings which can only be configured by using Windows PowerShell.
