Since the launch of Microsoft Teams in August for staff and PGRs, the uptake has been positive with more than 5,000 active users and rising and to further support users IT services have organised two Teams live events.
Teams live events
The Teams live events are large scale online events designed to give you an introduction to Teams and help you make the most of it. The focus will be on showing you how to make calls, organise meetings, and use the chat and collaboration features. You’ll also be able to ask questions by typing them in a chat box.
To join either of these events simply click the relevant event link listed below at the start time. Up to 10,000 people can join a Teams live event, so you don’t need to book a place in advance. You do however need to be signed into Teams – whether you’re using the desktop version, via the app on a mobile device or through a web browser.
- Teams Live Event – Thursday 17 September, 11am – 12noon
- Teams Live Event – Thursday 8 October, 10.30am – 11.30am
There’s more information about Teams events, including a recording of one of the earlier orientation sessions, on our Teams microsite:

External access to Teams (for people outside our University to join meetings or chats) is now enabled but at present, people outside our organisation cannot be added to a Team. In addition, colleagues are not able to create their own Teams, but there is a request process in place.
