Microsoft Teams Meetings Best Practices

Question

What are some best practices for Microsoft Teams meetings that I should review before hosting a meeting?

Answer

Host Best Practices 

  • Teams should only be used for meetings of 12 people or less. 

  • Directly send the meeting link only to the people you want to attend the meeting. 

  • Join early to allow time to troubleshoot and setup presentation (if necessary). 

  • Utilize the Mute feature - this silences the participants' microphones and helps to minimize meeting noise. 

  • Conduct an audio check to make sure participants can hear and that microphones are working. 

  • Record the meeting to share with participants. 

Participant Best Practices 

  • Never share or forward a Microsoft Teams meeting link that was shared with you.  

  • Arrive to the slightly early to confirm audio and connectivity is working. 

  • Mute yourself when you are not talking. 

  • Utilize the chat feature for asking questions, both for the host or other participants. 

  • Do not share content unless you are presenting something.
