Step 1: How to schedule a meeting

If you’re a Microsoft Teams user, you can create meetings directly in-app. That means you don’t have to go back and forth to your email inbox. 

To start, head to Microsoft Teams and then click on “Calendar”. 

Choose “+ New Meeting” and a box will appear. Give your meeting a title and pick a date and time. You can also add additional information if you want to. 

If you want to make the meeting a recurring one, click on “Does not repeat” and decide how often you want to have the meeting. 

Next, add the people you want to attend or if you want a group of people you can select “Add channel” to invite everyone who’s a member of it. 

Once everything looks right, click “Send” and the meeting will appear in your calendar.

Step 2: Joining a meeting 

Head over to Microsoft Teams and click on “Calendar”.

Scroll to the meeting you are expecting to attend and click “Join”. 

You’ll have a chance to check your microphone and camera before connecting. This is always worth doing. 

Once you’re ready, select “Join now”.
