Join Teams work meetings from Microsoft Teams (free) and vice versa

Microsoft Teams (Free) users can currently join Teams for work (or school) meetings only as guests, which requires them to use a browser and results in a sub-optimal experience. The new feature rolling out will allow these users to join Teams for work (or school) meetings in one click, without being redirected to the browser or asked to fill in their name/surname. They will also be able to continue collaborating with the meeting organizer and other participants via meeting chat after the meeting.  The feature will work in the opposite way as well, so Teams for work (or school) will just as easily be able to join meetings hosted by a Teams Free user with one click.

9th MVP award!


July 6th 2023 is for many MVPs known as the "F5" day, where we sit and wait for that "You have been awarded..." email.... Or not.

I am yet again humbled and proud to have been re-awarded my MVP for the 9th time today. 

I have been asked many times what an MVP is and what it takes to become one. It is not something you become during your regular working hours is usually my reply. It takes a bit of passion for technology, and an inner drive to contribute to the community in one way or another. 

There are many paths to a MVP reward, but my contributions for the past years have been around organizing several User Groups in Norway and my hometown, and organizing a one day, free conference called MVP-Dagen, where we invite other MVPs to deliver content to the community. In addition to this, I try to engage in multiple discussions and try to provide as much feedback to different teams with Microsoft as possible.

Once again, I want to send my thanks to Microsoft, the MVP Team, PGI groups, MVP regional Lead and MVP product Leads. You know who you are! I am looking forward to yet another year!
