How to use a Microsoft Teams Room?
It’s always been hard to get people on board with new things, be it new tools, processes, especially with new technologies. When implementing new meeting room solutions, there are always some that aren’t tech-savvy or just general naysayers when it comes to anything new. A study showed that of those people who resisted the change to a Microsoft Teams Room, 80% is due to not knowing how the system work and how to operate it. Therefore, it is extremely crucial for the internal staff in the organization to understand the technology and be fully bought in.

To join a scheduled meeting, find your meeting on the touch console and select Join to enter. Once you’ve joined up, there is no need to setup any audio and video source as these settings were pre-configured during installation.
3. Add ad hoc participants to the meeting
Adding additional participants is just a few clicks – From the touch console, type the name of the participants you want to add in the search bar.
Select the participant’s name from the search results.
Select Request to join.
4. How to share your screen in the meeting
There are two ways to share with both in-room and online participants from your personal laptop:
1. Connect your device to the cable connected to the room console and your screen will automatically cast to the front of room display and into the meeting.
2. Alternatively, with Bluetooth enabled on your laptop, use Cast from your Teams app and share the content of your laptop wirelessly to the front of room display and into the meeting. (This only works for internal staffs with the same email domain as the meeting room, external attendee who are outside of the organization cannot use the cast feature).
