Meeting with people via Microsoft Teams is an awesome way to stay connected while working from home.
To create a meeting, go to the calendar page and click “New Meeting”. You can then fill out the details and add both required AND optional attendees.
Did you know that Teams lets you add users both within and outside of your organization to a meeting? When creating a meeting you can invite an individual using any valid email address, even if they are not part of your organization.
There are several other ways for people to join Teams meetings.
- Join from calendar – Go to the calendar tab, find the meeting and click “Join”.
- Join with direct link – If a direct link to join is shared with you, you’ll have the option to join through the web browser or the app itself. You can find this join link in your meeting invitation or during a meeting by opening the participants pane from the bottom toolbar and selecting the link symbol on the top right.
- Calling in – If you don’t have access to the Teams app, you may be able to dial in using your mobile phone! You should have the number to dial available in your initial meeting invitation, along with the conference ID.
- In a channel or chat – If the meeting is being held in a channel or a chat, you can go to this channel or chat and the meeting should appear, along with the current participants. Simply click “Join” to take part!
