Pair with your Microsoft Organization

Before joining Microsoft Teams meetings with Epiphan Connect, the administrator of the Microsoft Teams Organization you want to extract from must pair the Epiphan Cloud team you will be using with Epiphan Connect. This process will have to be done for each Microsoft Organization from which you want to extract. For example, if you want to use Epiphan Connect to extract meeting participants from Acme Corporation and Vandelay Industries, the Microsoft Organization administrator for both of these companies must pair your Epiphan Connect team in their respective Microsoft Organizations. These Microsoft Organizations must be either work or school level accounts.
