Practicing social distance with Microsoft Teams

Microsoft TeamsPracticing social distance at work is easy with Microsoft Teams! Simply replace face-to-face meetings with web meetings using Teams. Links to documents with easy step-by-step information on getting started are included below (note: you will have to be logged in to Office 365 to access). All you need is a computer with a camera, microphone and speakers available. You can schedule Teams meetings using Outlook or start web meeting sessions on the fly with a simple audio or video call. IT is working to make the desktop teams client available in the Software Center for PC users and Self Service for Mac users to download and will push out the application this week to any remaining employee workstations. If the desktop app is not available you should be able to have full functionality in the web-based application in Office 365.

No camera, microphone or speakers available on your computer? No problem. You can use Microsoft Teams mobile app with any smart device including iPhone, iPads or Android devices too.
