How to Join the Kentucky Women’s Book Festival Event on Microsoft Teams

After registering, you will be sent a calendar invite to be able to join us virtually on Microsoft Teams.

  • We ask that all participants have their mic muted and cameras off during the program.
  • You can put questions in the chat or Raise Your Hand to be called on to verbally ask your question with your camera being turned on as an option during the Q&A sessions.
  • We will take a group photo during the program asking participants who are comfortable to turn on their camera.

You can join a Teams meeting anytime, from any device, whether or not you have a Teams account. If you don't have an account, follow these steps to join as a guest.

  1. Desktop
    1. Go to the meeting invite and select Join Microsoft Teams Meeting.
    2. That'll open a web page, where you'll see two choices: Download the Windows app and Join on the web instead. If you join on the web, you can use either Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome. Your browser may ask if it's okay for Teams to use your mic and camera. Be sure to allow it so you'll be seen and heard in your meeting.
    3. Enter your name and choose your audio and video settings. If the meeting room (or another device that's connected to the meeting) is nearby, choose Audio off to avoid disrupting. Select Phone audio if you want to listen to the meeting on your mobile phone.
    4. When you're ready, hit Join now.
    5. This will bring you into the meeting lobby. The meeting organizer will admit you into the program.
    6. Mobile
      1. In the meeting invite, select Join Microsoft Teams Meeting.
      2. If you do not already have the Teams mobile app, you'll be taken to your app store to download it.
      3. Download and open the app.

If you have an Android device, open the app right from the app store page.

If you have an iOS device, tap the meeting link again to open the app.

  1. Next, you'll be given two options for joining your meeting: Join as a guest or Sign in and join. Choose Join as a guest.
  2. Type your name and tap Join meeting.
  3. Once you're in the meeting, you can turn your video or mic on or off by tapping on the center of your screen to show the meeting controls. Tap again to hide them.
