Join a meeting
You can join your meeting by tapping the Join button on the welcome screen. There are a number of features available to you in Surface Hub, including being able to conduct a meeting via Teams or Skype for Business all in the same space.
Full screen view
The Teams pane will appear on the right side of the screen whenever you join a meeting. There you will be able to see the video feeds of all the people who are participating in the meeting. As many as four incoming video streams are able to be displayed on the Surface Hub at once. To expand the incoming video to fill the entire screen, you need to click on Full screen at the bottom of the Teams pane, and then choose whether to have all four video feeds on the screen at the same time, or just one.
Simply press the same button again at any time if you want to exit the full screen mode.
Add someone to the meeting
The process of adding people to a meeting can be started by going to the Teams pane, clicking the Add people button (it can be found next to the button that will allow you to open a full screen meeting), and entering the individual’s name in the text field provided. The more options you type, the more options you will see appear on the screen. When you see the name of the person you want to find, you can click on it to add their name to your search when you see it on your phone’s screen. When you see their name on your phone, you can tap on it to add their name to your search.
With the Surface Hub, there are two different cameras that can be found on the left of the Surface Hub, and another that can be found on the right of the Surface Hub. You will find a default camera on the right side of the window that you will be able to use by default when you first open it, but you have the option to modify it as needed if necessary.
There is a Settings button next to the Add people button. If you tap the Cameras menu, you will be able to choose Left or Right depending on what you want.
View meeting details
Throughout the Team pane, there is a Meeting button, which is located to the right of the Team icon. This button provides information concerning the meeting, such as the name, the time and date, and the location of the meeting.
Share your screen
When you tap Screen sharing in the middle of the call controls, you will be able to instantly share your screen with everyone in the meeting. That’s all you need to do!
A Surface Hub can be used as a screen sharing device by any of the meeting participants. They will automatically be able to view their screen in fullscreen mode as soon as they click on it. A Surface Hub user who will be viewing a PowerPoint presentation that was shared by a participant can scroll through the slides. For you to scroll through the slides, you do not need to be present for the sharer to do so.
Move the Teams pane
A team pane usually appears on the right hand side of the screen by default, although this may change from time to time. Touch near the top right corner of the screen if you would like to move it to the left side.
Turn off incoming video
Tap More actions from the call control menu on your phone. When you choose Turn off incoming video, you will be given the option to disable incoming video.
Share a Whiteboard link
Here is a link that can be shared with everyone who is present at the meeting:
- Copy the link from Whiteboard once you are logged in.
- You can access teams.microsoft.com via the Edge browser by signing in.
- It is possible to paste the link to the meeting chat (or the chat messages of the individuals participating in the meeting) into a chat message as the link to the chat.
End the meeting
If you would like to end the meeting, click Hang up on the call controls.
As you are using the Surface Hub, it is important that you remember once you are done with your session, the history on the device will be cleared for the person who is using it next time.
