In order for Teams to integrate with the Soluno PBX, Microsoft requires you to have the license model E5 or any other E-plan (E1 or E3) with an additional “Phone System” license. It has to be an enterprise license, a business license will unfortunately not suffice.

Features in Microsoft Teams

Hold and participate in meetings with Teams

It’s easy to both hold and attends meetings with Microsoft Teams. You can have between 2 and 100 people attending the meeting. Keep the meeting going with conversations or video, together with people both inside and outside your organization.

With Teams, you can either create a meeting to be attended directly or schedule it to a later time or another day. Additionally, the service offers several advanced meeting options to facilitate your distance meetings. For instance, you have the option of handing over the presenter control to another participant in the meeting and then take it back when required. In some cases, the sound can become distorted when several microphones are running at the same time. You can turn off the sound of one or more participants, to reduce any unnecessary background noise. A specific URL is created for the meeting so you can invite participants with your link. Both audio and video are encrypted so that no unwanted participants can join the meeting.

Instant messaging in Teams

Teams have a built-in function for instant messaging; that is, a chat function. During the meeting, you can quickly and easily send messages between one other, including ideas and comments. This is perfect for meetings with a large number of participants, as it reduces noise and enables participants to hold conversations without talking to each other.

Share screen or upload a PowerPoint

It is easy to share your screen with other participants in the meeting. You can freely choose which participant’s screen to display and easily switch between different screens during the meeting. In this way, you can take turns to speak in a single meeting without having to reconnect. Of course, it is possible to present with PowerPoint or other interactive tools. The participants can also add notes and comments during the meeting.
