Microsoft Teams dial-in feature now available

Wednesday, April 1, 2020

Please forward to staff and faculty in your department.
 

What is happening? As mentioned in the Staying connected with Microsoft Teams Daily Bulletin article, Information Systems & Technology (IST) has enabled a “dial-in” feature for Microsoft Teams meetings. 
 

What is the impact? Meeting attendees can dial-in to a meeting by phone when they are unable to join via the Teams application or an Internet connected device. The feature will be enabled and available for use within the next 24-48 hours. Once enabled, all employees will receive an email indicating audio conferencing for Microsoft Teams has been enabled and will include dial-in and PIN details. 
 

How do attendees access or use the dial-in number? Attendees will dial-in to the meeting using the toll-free number included in the meeting invite they receive, and then enter the conference ID number when prompted. Both the phone and conference ID numbers are included in the meeting invitation by default when the meeting is booked. 
 

Important: The Teams application should be used whenever possible. If attendees must dial-in to a meeting, please encourage use of the toll-free dial-in number.
 

Questions or concerns? Please contact the IST Service Desk, helpdesk@uwaterloo.ca or ext. 44357.
