You no longer have to switch to your calendar to access and join an online meeting. In this video, learn how to join an online meeting directly from your inbox.
- [Instructor] One new feature here in Outlook will save you time when it comes to joining online meetings you've been invited to. You no longer have to RSVP by choosing yes or maybe, which adds it to your calendar, then switch over to your calendar, locate that event, and then locate the link to join that online meeting within the event. You can do it all from the email invitation now. That's what we're going to explore here in Outlook, whether you're working with the app, on a Windows PC, or in a browser like me on a Mac. When you are logged into Outlook and receive that email invitation, it's going to look a little bit different. Here's one from Phyllis. And you can see the usual links to RSVP. I could choose yes to add it to my calendar and then switch over to my calendar to locate that event and the link to the online meeting but notice as we scroll a little further down, there's a link to join that online meeting. It's a Microsoft Teams meeting. Clicking this link will take me directly to it without having to go through the process of finding it in my calendar. So I'm going to click, which prompts me to allow the app to launch the Microsoft Teams app here on a Mac computer. You can see it launching here. Not only does it launch automatically but it takes me directly to that meeting. And my name's already here. I've used this before. Clicking Join now will allow me to join that meeting directly from the link in the email invitation. And here we are connecting. I have access to my microphone and my video if I wanted to use that once in the meeting. You can see when the meeting starts, we'll let people know that you're waiting. So the organizer needs to get in there. And once that meeting starts up, I'll be automatically joined. Of course, we can close this up when we're done with the meeting. So that's a nice little time saver in Outlook where you can click a link in the email invitation to join online meetings directly from the message itself.
