Microsoft Teams for Business accounts can be connected with personal Schoox profiles. Thus, managers can use their own personal Teams accounts to create and initiate Live Sessions in the Academy.
You will need a Microsoft Azure account to connect Teams to your academy. Please refer to this article for step-by-step instructions.
Connecting Your Personal Microsoft Teams Account
Click on your profile picture in the top right and select Settings -> Integrations -> Microsoft Teams for Business. Select Connect, and complete the setup.
Once the Microsoft Teams account is connected to your Personal profile, you'll be able to see a revelant "Connected" indication in Schoox. It's time to select your account's tier! If you have an up to 100 users Microsoft Teams for Business account, for example, you won’t be able to invite more than 100 users to your event.
Microsoft provides the following options of subscriptions:
- Free Plan (up to 100 users)
- Essentials Plan (up to 300 users)
- Basic Plan (up to 300 users)
- Standard Plan (up to 300 users)
- Premium Plan (up to 300 users)
- Enterprise Plan (unlimited # of users)
- Mixed Plans (allows you to define the # of users)
By default, a maximum of 500 users are allowed to participate in a Virtual session initiated with Microsoft Teams. This is a limit imposed by Microsoft. If you need more users than this, please contact your Schoox CSM or Schoox Support.
Last but not least, you can enable/disable the "Allow users outside of your Microsoft Azure Organization to connect to Teams Meetings" setting. This setting allows you to restrict the Teams Meetings Participation only to your Organization Users who have an e-mail address in your Azure domain. This way you can exclude External Users from your online meetings. Please note, however, that this setting should be defined before initiating your event, as it does not work retroactively.
Your Microsoft Teams account is now successfully connected with your Academy! You are now ready to start creating your events, and initiate them using the connected Microsoft Teams account.
Attendees who stay in the meeting under 60 seconds will not be counted as attendees.
Hosts MUST actively end Microsoft Teams meetings by selecting End Meeting to properly communicate attendance information. Failure to do this may result in inaccurate attendance reporting.
- Communication between Microsoft and Schoox every 5 minutes; attendance data may take up to 5 minutes to sync.
