Now that you've logged into Teams, you will need to click the Teams menu button along the left-hand side of the tool (not to be confused with the software named Teams). Your various class Teams sites will appear here in squares labelled with the course code.

Additional Steps

This process can be repeated for other channels.

Instructors may need to enter the Calendar on the left-hand and navigate to and delete single meeting occurrences that are repeating on holidays or during other conflicts.

Joining a Meeting

Students and Instructors can join the Scheduled meeting in the MS Teams Calendar or the Teams channel itself. Watch for the Calendar icon to signify that you are joining the scheduled meeting, not joining or creating an ad-hoc channel meeting (which is a common source of confusion).
