How do I embed a Storm into a MS Teams Meeting?

Embed a Storm during your Microsoft Teams call and contribute to the Storm seamlessly with other contributors in real-time.


Note: This feature is only available in the Microsoft Teams App and not when running Microsoft Teams from a web browser. 

Also, the call recording feature is unavailable when a Storm is embedded in the Teams Meeting. This is a limitation of Microsoft Teams, not Stormboard. Microsoft is currently working on supporting this feature. 

There are two ways to embed a Storm into a Microsoft Teams meeting:

  1. Embed the Storm during a scheduled Teams meeting.

  2. Embed the Storm prior to the Teams meeting.

OPTION ONE: Embed Storm during a scheduled Teams meeting. 

1. While in a scheduled Microsoft Teams meeting, select the Apps tab on the top right of your screen.

2. On the Find an app tab, search for the Stormboard App.
