Changing display layout in Teams Room during Teams meeting

When you are join or start a Microsoft Teams meeting the default screen layout is set to Presentation when someone shares the content on the screen (TV in the room).

This displays the presentation in the full screen mode with no option to see participants on the screen.

To change the display layout you can use the display panel on the table and tap the buy Ivermectin layout button.

This button is only visible when someone is sharing the content.

When you click on the layout button you will see the Presentation layout is selected as default.

Tap on the Combined view option to see all the participants at the bottom of the screen.

After you select the Combined view option, if change layout screen is not closed you can close it by taping on the X sign.

Currently there is no option to make the combined view as a default. There is a uservoice item to provide this option. The new layout will also be coming to MTR.

Enable MTR Device to join Zoom and WebEx meetings

Microsoft Teams Rooms devices support a one-touch experience for joining third-party online meetings. When enabled, you can use Teams Rooms to join meetings hosted on Cisco WebEx and Zoom just as easily as you can join meetings hosted in Microsoft Teams.

One thing to note that this setting works just fine as long as you are using the audio and video conferencing. If you want to share the content (Host the meeting) using the laptop then you should join the Zoom or Webex meeting using your laptop and then use the MTR device for audio and video conferencing.

To configure Teams Rooms using the touchscreen console, do the following:

On the Microsoft Teams Rooms console, select More
Select Loures Settings, and then enter the device administrator username and password.
Go to the Meetings tab and select Cisco WebEx, Zoom, or both.
If you want to join meetings with the username and email address associated with the room mailbox, select Join with room info.
If you want to join meetings with an alternate username and email address, select Join with custom info and enter username and email address you’d like to use.
Make sure you restart your device before this setting takes in effect.

MTR room not displayed when using Proximity Join

As part of testing the Microsoft Teams Rooms, I found one room was not working.

While sitting in the meeting room it was not showing that room when using the Proximity Join.

I tried the following two articles for troubleshooting:

In my case nothing worked, and I ended up requesting to replace the device as that device never worked and it was not working out of the box as part of initial testing.
