Join a Lync Meeting or audio or video conference call
You can join the audio or video, and IM (if it’s turned on in the meeting) portion of a Lync Meeting from Lync for iPhone. When you join from a mobile device, you can only hear the meeting audio and see the video of other participants (if it’s being shown). You won’t be able to see any meeting content being shared.
- To join a Lync Meeting, tap Meetings, and from the Online tab (which shows only your Lync Meetings), select the meeting that you want to join, and then tap Join Meeting.
- Depending on how you set your VoIP call options, one of the following will happen:
- You’ll be connected to audio or video using VoIP either by using Wi-Fi (if you connected to a Wi-Fi network) or your cellular data plan.
- Or, Lync will call you on your mobile phone and you’ll need to accept the Lync call in order to join the meeting. This happens only when your audio or video call options are set to ON and your iPhone isn’t connected to a Wi-Fi network.
You can also dial in to the meeting from any phone by dialing the Join by Phone numbers listed in the meeting request. The dial-in phone number is listed towards the bottom of the request.
NOTE: When you join a Lync Meeting by dialing in, your telephone number is displayed in the meeting roster.
The meeting lobby is an online waiting area. The meeting leader can control access to the meeting, or admit someone who doesn’t have the correct meeting credentials.
If the meeting leader has enabled the meeting lobby, you’ll need to wait until the meeting leader admits you to the meeting. If you’re waiting in the lobby, don’t move to another screen because your request to join the meeting will be cancelled if you do.
