Hey there! So you want to learn how to invite someone to a Microsoft Teams video call? Well, you’ve come to the right place! As an avid user of Microsoft Teams, I’ll walk you through the process step by step.

Step 1: Open Microsoft Teams

To start, make sure you have the Microsoft Teams application installed on your device. Open the app and sign in with your Microsoft account credentials. Once you’re logged in, you’ll be greeted with the Teams interface.

Step 2: Create a New Meeting

Next, click on the “Calendar” tab at the bottom of the screen. This will take you to the calendar view where you can schedule and manage your meetings. At the top right corner, click on the “+ New meeting” button.

Step 3: Fill in Meeting Details

Now you’ll need to provide some information about the meeting. Give your meeting a title in the “Add a title” field. You can also add a location if desired. Below that, you’ll see the date and time fields where you can set the meeting’s start and end time.

Step 4: Add Participants

To invite someone to the video call, click on the “Add required attendees” field and start typing the name or email address of the person you want to invite. As you type, Microsoft Teams will suggest matching contacts from your address book. Select the person you want to invite from the list.

If you want to invite multiple participants, simply repeat the process for each person you want to add. You can also add optional attendees, if needed, by clicking on the “Add optional attendees” field.

Step 5: Send the Invitation

Once you’ve added all the participants, click on the “Send” button at the bottom right corner of the screen. This will send the invitation to all the invited participants.

Step 6: Join the Meeting

After sending the invitation, you can join the meeting by clicking on the meeting link provided in the invitation email or calendar event. This will open Microsoft Teams and take you directly to the meeting.

Alternatively, you can also join the meeting by going back to the “Calendar” tab in Microsoft Teams and double-clicking on the meeting event. This will open the meeting details where you’ll find the “Join” button.
