Teams can also be used for phone-based conference calls

Create a meeting as described in one of the two methods above and simply call in to your own meeting. The call in number will be generated with the meeting invite.

For all college faculty and staff, call in options will automatically be added to your meeting invitation.

If you are calling in, to lead the meeting you will need your conference PIN. This can be set and reset here: https://mysettings.lync.com/pstnconferencing?language=en-US (be sure to log in with your MCLA credentials when prompted).
