Join a Microsoft Team meeting
You should be in a Team meeting - Congratulations!
It's easy - the principle is:
Make sure you have "good audio". Good microphone and speakers, or a headset e.g. So that others and you hear well.
Connect any external audio equipment to your device before connecting to the meeting and then the system will have time to configure the technology for you. If you connect external audio during the meeting, sometimes Teams fails to activated it automatically - then you need to manually switch device within the Teams app.
Connect to the meeting preferably a few minutes before. Connect 5-15 minutes before if this is your first meeting, so you are sure to be on time if there is any hassle. It may take a few minutes to install the Teams app if you choose to use that. The Teams web app also need some minute to configure.
Many people in the meeting? Turn off your microphone and turn it on when you say something. Use the "Raise your hand" button to request the word.
Talk one at a time, show respect
