MS Teams - Place a Call


Provide instruction on how to make a call in Microsoft teams


To dial a number from Teams, go to Calls Calls button , click Dial a number, and then enter the number of the person you want to reach. This way you can contact anyone, even if they're outside your organization.

For international calls, type in the international code and number. 

In the Calls Calls button area, you can also access favorite and suggested contacts, listen to your voicemail, and check your call history.

Note: If you don't see Calls Calls button in Teams, that means you don't have an Enterprise Voice license as part of your Office 365 subscription, and making calls to external numbers isn't available to you yet.
