Apply for a License to Allow Dial-in for a Microsoft Teams Meeting

Environment

U-M Microsoft Teams

Issue

I want people to call into my meetings in Microsoft Teams. How do I get the dial in number?

Resolution

You will need to grant yourself a special license by completing the following form: Microsoft Teams Audio Conferencing License

Note: Only those eligible for a Microsoft Teams account in the U-M instance are eligible to apply for this additional license. This includes active students, staff, and faculty as well as level 1 sponsored affiliates.

Keep in mind the following:

  • The audio conferencing license will provide attendees of your Teams audio and video conference meetings (including yourself) the option to call in to the meeting through a provided telephone number (not toll-free).
  • The person who wants to call in to the meeting does not need an audio conferencing license; only you (the host) need the license.
  • This license does not give you the ability to call into meetings you do not host. The host of a meeting must have this license in order to allow users to call in.
  • This license does not allow for you to call out to phone numbers from your video conference meeting. That feature is not currently offered on the U-M Teams instance.
  • After submitting this form, a license will be applied to your U-M Teams account. You will receive an email from Microsoft titled “You now have Audio Conferencing for Microsoft Teams” with a confirmation and a PIN that you must save which acts as your host key if you dial in to your own meeting.
  • After you have an audio conferencing license, when you schedule new Teams meetings using Google Calendar, the Google Calendar invitation will include a provided telephone number (not toll-free) automatically:
