How to connect Teams

It's important to note that the user does not need to have a Microsoft account connected to join the call: only the meeting creator has to have an account. This means that not everyone in your organization would require a Microsoft license in order to use this feature.

Users who will be creating the meetings will need to connect their Microsoft account to their Blink profile as follows: To get started, open Blink in the desktop or webapp and go to the Feed.

  1. Scroll down on the right side until you see the "Feed Settings" section. Click on "connect your apps"

  2. Select "Microsoft 365"

  3. Select either of the "Connect" options shown below. This will redirect you to the MS365 login screen in your browser. If you have multiple windows/browsers open, be sure to check all of the for the new tab if you don't see it immediately.

  4. Once you've successfully signed in, your MS365 account will be linked to Blink! This will give you access to all MS365 tools/content in the app as well as integrate in your calendar.
