The following article explains how to download and install the Microsoft Teams app.

Installing the Microsoft Teams App

Microsoft Teams can be accessed through one of two methods, the web based app or the desktop application. We currently recommend downloading and installing the desktop application due to more features and consistent functionality. Microsoft Teams is not currently included in the base Office 365 download package installed on users machines. Due to this users will need to download the application separately using one of the two following methods :

 Download Teams from the Microsoft Website
  • 1. Microsoft Teams can be downloaded directly from the Microsoft website located here.
  • 2. Click the Download for Desktop button located on this page. This will be the download link for both Windows and MacOS based machines.
  • 3. The page will then ask you to login, use your A#@Mcla.edu and your password. After logging in the application will start downloading.
  • 4. Once the download is complete, double click the downloaded application to begin installation. Follow on-screen instructions to finish the installation.
  • 5. Once installed you can open the Teams App and sign in with your MCLA User ID with @mcla.edu (example:A10001000) at the end of it along with your current MCLA account password.
 Download Teams from the Web Based Teams Application
  • 1. Microsoft Teams can be downloaded from within the web based app to your desktop.
  • 2. To access the web based application login to the MCLA Portal page and access your email account.
  • 3. Click the square of dots in the top left to open the application menu. Click Teams to launch the web based teams app.
  • 4. On the first page that opens, in the bottom left there will be a button to download the desktop application, click it to begin the download.
  • 5. Once the download is complete, double click the downloaded application to begin installation. Follow on-screen instructions to finish the installation.
  • 6. Once installed you can open the Teams App and sign in with your MCLA User ID with @mcla.edu (example:A10001000) at the end of it along with your current MCLA account password.
 Download for Mobile
  • Microsoft Teams can also be installed on a mobile device by going to the same Microsoft download page here and then clicking Download for Mobile. Follow the on-screen instructions depending on the mobile device you are attempting to install it on to finish the installation. Once installed you can open the Teams App and sign in with your MCLA User ID with @mcla.edu (example:A10001000) at the end of it along with your current MCLA account password.
