How to use Microsoft Teams Live app with OptiSigns

You can broadcast a Microsoft Teams Live on your digital signs with OptiSigns.

Sign in to Office 365 using your credentials.

Go to Teams: 


Click on Calendar:


Under New meeting, select Live event (It is better to download Microsoft Teams Desktop app for running the live event):


Give the event a name and location, then click Next:


Make sure to set it as public, no login is required:

Log in to OptiSigns:
Click Files/Assets -> Apps -> and select Microsoft Teams Live:


Give your MS Teams Live app a name and paste the copied attendee URL in there:


For not Public Live event (Sign-in required):


You can set Username and Password in Advanced section:



Important Note: If you are utilizing the OptiSigns Android Stick kindly ensure that the Live Meeting is set to public. If your preference is to have the Teams Live Meeting set to "Sign-in required," it is recommended to consider using the Windows or Linux device.


That's it!

Now you can assign this MS Teams Live app to your screens, or put it on a schedule so the screens will join automatically when the event start.


Have the host start the event a few mins before screens are joining automatically.
It will take a device 10-15s to join the event, so it's not a good idea to put the MS Teams Live in a playlist. It's better to use it as single asset to take up full screen or be part of a SplitScreen zone.
