Instructions for Joining Teams Live Events (Assemblies)

Joining a Teams Live Event on a Phone or Tablet

  • Click the link that has been sent to you for the event
  • It will load in your default web browser and take you to a page that looks like the picture below. (If the page doesn’t load and you are using the Safari Browser – try a different browser as Microsoft’s support for Safari is varied. Google Chrome or Firefox would be the best options)

  • Download the app – if you had it downloaded already, press the ‘Open it’ option. If you needed to download it – when it’s finished – following the link again and choose ‘Open it’
  • When the app opens you will see the screen below – IMPORTANT: Chose the second option ‘Sign in and join’ (if you chose Join as guest you will get an error about needing permission to join)


Joining a Teams Live Event on a Laptop or PC

  • Click the link that has been sent to you for the event
  • It will load in your default web browser and take you to a page that looks like the picture below. (If the page doesn’t load and you are using the Safari Browser – try a different browser as Microsoft’s support for Safari is varied. Google Chrome or Firefox would be the best options)

  • Choose the ‘Watch on the web instead’ option
  • The next page should be a Sign in button – enter your full student school email address (eg. 18jsheard@williamhoward.cumbria.sch.uk) Note: If it auto signs you in and then you get a page saying there is a permissions issue, it’s likely it is logging in to a different Microsoft account that has the credentials saved on the computer – rather than your WHS student account. To get around this use a Private browsing/Incognito window to access the link instead.
  • After entering your password – it should take you into the live broadcast or the replay of the broadcast if it you missed the event
    If your login fails and you need your password resetting – please get in touch with the student helpdesk by emailing: studentitsupport@cumbriaeducationtrust.org
