Step 1: Install the app for Microsoft Teams
Click the button above and then click the "Get it now" button on the page that loads.
Please note that your Microsoft Teams account will need admin privileges to install the app.

Step 3: Invite Eric.ai to your meetings
There are three ways to invite Eric.ai into your meetings:
Eric will join at the scheduled time if you add [email protected] to your calendar invite. Make sure your invite includes the Microsoft Teams joining URL (this is added automatically if you create the calendar event within Microsoft Teams). You will receive an email confirming or rejecting your invitation.
Eric will join instantly if you copy and paste the Microsoft Teams joining URL into the Quick Invite box (located at the bottom of the navigation bar in your dashboard).
Eric will also join instantly if you open the Eric.ai sidebar in your meeting and click the Join Now button on the sidebar.
If you invite Eric.ai to a recurring meeting calendar invite (a meeting that repeats in your calendar), Eric.ai will join each instance of the meeting automatically. The series of meetings will be conveniently linked up in Eric.ai so you can navigate between meetings and see the outcomes of your previous meeting(s) when needed.
Step 4: Meet Eric.ai
You're ready to go! If you have already invited using the instructions above you can now start to benefit from the features below:
Join your meeting
Eric.ai will join your meeting and wait in the lobby for up to 5 minutes until you admit into the room. Eric.ai will send a message to all participants to notify them that the meeting will be recorded and enhanced by Eric.ai.
Make use of the sidebar
Open the Eric.ai app in your live Microsoft Teams meeting and you'll see the meeting information in the sidebar on the right of the window:
Button to open the meeting page (opens in a new window)
Button to share the meeting page with your invitees
Your time-boxed agenda (if assigned to the meeting)
Real-time participation of your invitees
Action items that are created automatically using the voice command
Actions items that you can create manually within the sidebar
Your meeting page
Every meeting that Eric.ai joins will have an associated meeting page created. These pages are all available from your My Meetings page. Your meeting pages include:
General meeting details including time, date and invitees
Real-time (searchable) transcription
Meeting minutes download
Meeting summary that includes automatic highlights, automatic topics, participation and a "Quick View" shortened recording of your meeting
You can create action items using your voice or manually. To create an action item by voice, you can say the "Action Item" command followed by the task and you can optionally include an assignee and due date. For example, if you say "Action Item I will water the garden tomorrow" it will create a new task as described which is assigned to you and is due at tomorrow's date.
You can also create and edit action items manually from the meeting page or the Microsoft Teams sidebar.
