Using Teams for Virtual Support Group Meetings

Virtual support groups at The Family Birth Place

You should have received a link for the virtual support group you are attending.

The support group will take place using an application called Microsoft Teams. You will "Join as a Guest", so please do not register for an account.

Again, you do not need to register for an account or have a login ID or password to use Teams. You may need to download the Teams app, depending on how you are connecting to the meeting.

You can connect to Microsoft Teams in three ways: on a smartphone, a tablet, or a computer with a camera. Please use the dropdowns below for specific instructions for your device.

If you would like to print out instructions to have handy while you join the visit, please download our tip sheet here.

Once you click “Join Teams meeting” link, then choose the "Join in this browser" option for easiest access. Install the application from the available download link only if you experience any browser, camera, or audio compatibility issues. You may have to disable your pop-up blockers if you get a blank screen.

Connection Instructions:

  1. Click the "Join Teams Meeting" link in the email you received.
  2. Select the "Join as Guest" option when prompted and enter your name.
  3. You may be prompted to "allow" your microphone to be used.
  4. Enable your camera by tapping the camera icon. You may be prompted to "allow" its use.
  5. The preferred method for audio is via your connection device. If you must connect audio with a separate phone instead, to prevent echoing mute the microphone and turning down/off the speaker volume on your video device.

iPhone or iPad

You must download the “Microsoft Teams by Microsoft Corporation” app from the App store in order to join on your iPhone or iPad.
