Microsoft Teams Support

Virtual Meetings In response to the Covid-19 pandemic Organic Arable will be using online tools to conduct virtual meetings to ensure we can still engage with our members and deliver some of the events we had programmed for spring and early summer. This post will aim to guide you through accepting a Microsoft Teams invite for virtual meetings so you are best prepared for future virtual meetings. Step 1 You will receive an email invite to a Microsoft Teams meeting (see image below), to be able to join the virtual meeting you must have clicked accept (circled in red).

Step 2 On the day of the scheduled meeting you will either join from the Microsoft Teams app or from your web browser (Internet explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari etc.). Join a Teams meeting from the app
