      The user only needs to authenticate for the use of MS Teams.
      For this purpose, a small window is displayed in which the user can log in with his MS 365 credentials. Often these are his Windows credentials. The login is only valid for a limited time and for the current browser session. If the user is already logged in, the window will disappear as soon as it appears.
    • No central authorization has been performed.
      You will see the window with which you can authenticate with your Windows credentials and authorize the d.vinci app for use in Microsoft 365.

  • Via the  icon    on the page Overview in the tab Appointments next to each MS Teams appointment
  • Via the   icon in the Application in the tab appointments next to each MS Teams appointment
  • Via the URL in the email that was sent to the applicant. This can be viewed in the application history
  • Via the URL in the email that was sent to all participating users (participants) of the appointment

In the waiting room, MS Teams distinguishes between two groups of participants:

  • Participants
    These are members of the Microsoft 365 client and all d.vinci users.
    They can enter the appointment without waiting and allow guests into the meeting.
  • Guests
    Are external people, such as the applicants and other non-d.vinci users.
    Guests can enter the waiting room, but must be manually admitted by a participant to enter the actual meeting. This prevents unauthorized or unwanted persons from gaining access to the meeting.


  • The chat in the waiting and meeting room is accessible and visible to all participants and guests.
  • It is mandatory that a person who is registered with Microsoft in the same company (tenant) as the creator of the meeting takes part in the meeting. This person must open the meeting, otherwise the other participants and also the applicant cannot join.
