How to join a Microsoft Teams Meeting
We will send you the video call invitation to your email address that we have on file.
Step 1: To start your meeting, select the link in purple to Join (see red box). This will open a new web page.
Step 2: Select the “Join the web instead” option if you do not have Microsoft Teams downloaded on your computer and/or mobile device.
Step 3: Enter in your name, use the slider to turn on audio and video settings, and join the call. You will automatically be sent to our virtual waiting room. For helpful tips and tricks on video calls, see our pointers below.
Tips and Tricks for Video Calls
Don’t wait for our meeting to start to find out your connection is bad, or your software doesn’t work properly. You can test your settings before the video call begins by making a test call and making any tweaks.
Make sure you have your ID and all the documents in front of you that we sent to you in advance. Our legal team will work with you closely to ensure you have received all the necessary documents via email and/or using our secure file sharing and transfer service.
Position the camera so the lawyer can see you sign.
Video calls require bandwidth. If you’re expecting a video call, make sure the smart devices in your home aren’t hogging the connection. If the kids are streaming video games (or Disney+ to keep them quiet in the background) or hefty software programs are running on your PC, all that activity could disrupt your video call at an inopportune time.
We are always here to help you. Please don’t hesitate to call our Reception team at 604.546.6345 for troubleshooting and assistance during your video call.
