How StarLeaf for Microsoft Teams works

The StarLeaf for Microsoft Teams integration can be installed on individual teams in your client. When StarLeaf for Teams is installed on a team, you can type the command ‘@StarLeaf create‘ in a team channel. This creates a StarLeaf meeting and everyone in the channel receives a message which contains information on the different ways to join the meeting, for example, with the StarLeaf app, from a StarLeaf room system, with Skype for Business, or on a telephone.

Each Teams channel has an associated permanent StarLeaf meeting. This ensures that, where there is more than one channel, participants join the correct meeting and this operates as a permanent space for collaboration.
