Hello Scope online community
If I just ask if I click the Microsoft teams meeting link  my email will automatically launch me into the meeting or will have to download the Microsoft teams app mac pro before it will work

I look forward to getting some advice  on this matter

    Hi @Globster

    Thanks for your question, you should be directed to the browser  version of Teams if you don't have it installed on your laptop, from there you may be prompted to install it or be given the option to continue in the browser version. Either way, if you click the meeting link you should be taken straight there yes.

    Yes I don’t use it often but as Ross says it will just take you to the browser version. That’s all I have done in the past.

    Guessing it’s a project we will all find out about though in due course? Intriguing.

    Hi @Globster

    It seems like this was a supportive thread and lots of people provided useful answers. I am just wondering if you were able to access Microsoft Teams or whether you need further support with this? I will look forward to hearing from you again soon  :)
