To support this functionality, you need at least:

You can dial into a meeting using your phone while viewing the meeting in your browser (this is useful if you do not have a microphone in your computer).
Select Use a phone for audio and view meeting in this browser.
To join a meeting using the app, select Use StarLeaf app on the meeting invitation. The app opens from your desktop.

- On the StarLeaf meeting invitation, select Skype for Business and then Open Skype for Business.
Skype for Business opens and a conversation box between you and the meeting participants also opens.

Participants can join a meeting from a StarLeaf room system using a 7-digit meeting ID.

Press this button to join the meeting.
If Join button is not alighted green, use the meeting ID to join:
