How to host a Microsoft Teams meeting - formerly Skype for Business

Everyone at Seneca has the ability to host and join Microsoft Teams and Skype for Business meetings using their PC/mobile device's speakers and microphones. To host a conference call with phone dial-in functionality requires a license. Note: All operations managers have this license.

Setting up a Microsoft Teams meeting

Create a new calendar event like you would for any meeting, but the one extra step is clicking the Teams Meeting button a the top. (Skype Meeting will go away eventually but works for now too.)


Those who have a license will notice that in addition to the "Join Microsoft Teams Meeting" URL, there is dial-in info provided as well. (show below in yellow)

If you're going to be hosting the meeting from a conference room, be sure to use the Room Finder pane on the right to choose an available room. (Choose Yes that you want to update the current location if choosing a room.)
