If you’re like me, there are many instances during the day when you’re in Microsoft Teams and you want to have a quick meeting with a group. However, it’s a pain to have to schedule the meeting first, and then hope that everyone can join. Now, you can just use the Meet Now option in Teams to create an ad-hoc meeting without the hassle of setting things up first. Here’s how that works…
Click on the Calendar icon on the left-side navigation bar, and then click on the Meet Now button in the upper-right corner of the workspace:
Teams will give you a screen to update the name of the meeting, set video and audio, and then join the meeting:
Once you’re in the meeting, you can invite the individuals who should join you. There’s no overhead in trying to set up a calendar entry first for everyone to accept and join:
AND you can record the meeting, saving it into the cloud….which generates a transcript and makes your meeting a searchable information asset!
