Click the “i” icon on top of the right screen.
Here you can type in your own phone number.
If the call is placed succesfull, a checkmark will appear.
Microsoft has released (Januari 17) some new features to the Microsoft Teams client.
Mute someone in a meeting
Mute individual meeting participants straight from the meeting roster to cut down on background noise. If someone has been muted, they’ll get a notification letting them know. They’ll be able to unmute themselves if they need to chime in.
Mute everyone in a meeting
If you ever need to mute all the other participants in a meeting, head to your meeting roster and select Mute all. Each individual will get a notification and be able to unmute themselves if they need to.
Last night Microsoft announced and published the Agent Opt In/Out feature to Skype for Business Online.
This update allows Admins to grant Call Queue Agents an ability to Opt In and Out from taking calls from a particular Queue at will.
For all newly created Call Queues, Agent Opt In/Out option will be enabled by default. For pre-existing Call Queues, Admins will need to enable this feature manually.
