Microsoft Teams Guidance for Group Courses

Joining our virtual courses using Microsoft Teams

Once you have booked onto a course, please follow this guidance to help you set up before for the start of the course.

Join by link – Mobile devices

If using a mobile device to join our courses, you will need to download the Teams mobile app. To do so you can either:

  • Follow the link sent to you via email which will take you to the page below, from here you can download the app by clicking “Get Teams”

                                     

Note: Try to download the app before the meeting starts. It might take a minute or two, depending on your internet connection.

Once the app is downloaded, you can join the group using the link. We will email you the invitation containing the link prior to the start of the course.

For our courses you will need to enter your name and join the meeting as a guest.

After typing your name click join meeting. You will then be held waiting in the lobby where our course facilitators will admit you when the course is due to start.

Join by link – Desktop

If using a desktop, you can join the group using the link sent to you via email without downloading any app.

All you need to join a Teams meeting is a link which we will email to you prior to the start of the course.

Select Join Microsoft Teams Meeting in your meeting invite to be taken to a page where you can choose to either join on the web or download the desktop app. We recommend joining on the web as no download is necessary. However if you are having difficulties with this, you can try downloading the desktop app.

For our courses you will need to enter your name and join the meeting as a guest. After typing your name click join now. You will then be held waiting in the lobby where our course facilitators will admit you when the course is due to start.

We hope this guide will help everyone to feel comfortable with using Microsoft Teams to join our courses. If you have any further questions about the courses please get in touch with the team on 01225 675150.
