Hi Guys,

Thanks for the excitement and enthusiasm about the SRS contest!!!!


Yes, I am not a fan of MS Teams – many reasons, but the hardware limitations and confusing instructions on how to use the tool are the worst!!!

I did not chose this platform, I wanted something more universal – like Google Meet, but I was out-voted by the others in the SRS committee….

But during the post-mortem review of the event – I will stress these problems with the SRS!!!!


I don’t know if there is a solution for access to Teams from any other OS besides Windows?

But, the best route is to just use the web-browser to run the tool, enter name and set your mic, camera etc and your in….. (don’t worry about install of the app)

Regards and talk soon, Donna

     I chose the browser option, and it seems to work fine. The contest doesn't start until 3 PM our time. The web app just asked me to input a name and asked for permission to use my camera and microphone. I am using Chrome and Win 10.

Their web page says you can use "Teams" or just use a web browser.  But 
when trying to connect it only offers the Teams link, no URL for a 
browser to connect: "How would you like to connect?"   Options are to 
use existing Teams app or to download new one. No URL in sight.  Perhaps 
that link is available somewhere else?
