How to use Teams Video Conferencing

When you are joining a “Teams” meeting you will get an email with a link to the meeting looking something like this:

Teams Email

You should click on the link to the Teams Meeting and then the screen at the top of the page will appear in your browser.

You have a choice as to which of the three options you should take; unless you have a email address the bottom one is ruled out.  You can then continue to use your browser (the top option, and easiest) or download the Windows application.  This will take a little longer, but will then perform better (they say).

Once you have done this, you will be prompted to type your name and “Join as a Guest”, which you click on, and then to “Join Now” – click on that button.  You may be prompted to allow your microphone and video to transmit.

At the end of the meeting, hover your mouse over the picture and click the red telephone to leave.

If you are using a phone then you need to download the Microsoft Teams App from the appropriate store.  This will work similarly, but slightly differently!

  1. The link isn’t highlighted anymore, so I can’t click on it. I’ve tried copying and pasting but can’t get that to work either? Sorry!
