        When first setting up your Microsoft Teams Room system, you will want to make sure that there are some settings on the local units are the way you want them to function. While some of these are straight forward, it is worth explaining the meeting mode setting to make sure that you are not caught with performance working differently than you expected.

        First you will want to get into setup from the main page of the system. Here you will hit the more button that will then populate the right side of the screen with a number of choices.

        Second step is to hit the settings button on the unit which will then populate a windows credential screen. The default user is admin and the default password is “sfb” all lower case.



        On this screen you will be entering your account information, but there is a setting called “SUPPORTED MEETING MODE”

        1. Skype for Business (default) and Microsoft Teams

        2. Skype for Business and Microsoft Teams (default)

        3. Skype for Business only




        EXPLANATION OF EACH SETTING

        The mode you choose is primarily used when hitting the new meeting button on the panel and creating what is termed as an “ad-hoc” meeting type or one that has not been scheduled. The way that your MTR system will initiate that unscheduled meeting is defined here and thus chooses the behavior of the system as well.

        For instance, if you choose Skype for Business only, your system will not accept a Microsoft Teams meeting invite and although the meeting itself will show up on the calendar, that meeting will not have a Join button attached to it and the user would not have the ability to join that Microsoft Teams meeting from the room system. This setting would primarily be used by those organizations that have Skype on-prem and have not yet started their journey to Microsoft Teams.

        If you choose Skype for Business and Microsoft Teams (default), the unit will authenticate to 3 things. Exchange, Skype for Business and Microsoft Teams. This way, both Skype for Business meetings and Microsoft Teams meeting invites will populate the single touch join, but when hitting NEW MEETING on the front page, this will initiate a Microsoft Teams meeting and invite those users typed into the invitation field via a Microsoft Teams call.
