How to Participate

Advisory Community meetings are flexible and open. Anyone can attend. To get the most of out the experience, we recommend joining a special Microsoft Team that we have created to keep track of community-related conversations, documents, and meeting dates:

Join Collaboration Tools Advisory Community
  1. Sign up for the Collaboration Tools Advisory Community on Microsoft Teams.
  2. When prompted, either:
    • Download the Teams app, or
    • Use the web app instead
  3. Check your email for a welcome message with more information on how to get the most out of the online group.

Any time the community meets, an online meeting space will be available inside of Microsoft Teams that you can use to participate remotely. The community's space in Teams can be used to conduct chat-based conversations outside of scheduled meetings.

We also will post relevant files in the Team, such as agendas and minutes.
