Dump Zoom For Microsoft Teams?

Zoom is a convenient online meeting platform but it’s far from safe. In fact, just last month cyber experts found more than 530,000 Zoom passwords for sale on the dark web. Thankfully, you don’t have to choose between holding online meetings and keeping your IT systems safe because Microsoft Teams offers online conferencing tools to allow business groups to meet both easily and securely.

 

Microsoft Teams comes with an array of neat features and amenities to make it easy for you to schedule, manage, and follow up on your online meetings. These include:

  • Scheduling assistance
  • Meeting note-taking
  • Screen sharing
  • Meeting recording
  • Instant messaging
  • Rich HD audio and video
  • The ability to share content during the meeting via integration with Microsoft Office 365
  • The ability to capture video and screen-sharing activity

What’s more, Microsoft puts a premium on cybersecurity, providing the top-tier tools and technologies you need to ensure your meeting and the information shared in it won’t fall into the wrong hands. Microsoft supports more than ninety different regulations and standards to ensure your company is industry compliant at all times. It also provides Teams uses with endpoint management, multi-factor authentication, advanced threat protection, encryption, and virtual waiting rooms so people can’t automatically join in on your calls.

How to Schedule a Microsoft Teams Video Call

Before you start, you’ll need to make sure that all the participants have access to Microsoft Teams. Your team members will also need a webcam, especially if the meeting involves the display of materials such as PowerPoint presentations.

Once everyone is set up, the person organizing the meeting simply needs to hit the “call” button on Teams. Select the video call option, then add in the names of all the meeting attendees. Once this is done, put in the date and time for the meeting. If the meeting is meant to be a recurring meeting that happens on the same day and at the same time of the day each week (or month), you can adjust your Teams settings to reflect this, thus saving yourself the time and hassle of having to put in meeting information every single week.

Once the meeting is scheduled, you and all the other meeting attendees will get a message about the meeting, including a notice with the date and time for the meeting. All you have to do is show up and start the meeting when the time is right.
