2. Open the relevant module/organisation.

3. From the Details and actions area, select the Open Microsoft Teams link.

If you are unable to see the link, try to refresh the page, or try a different browser (Safari commonly experiences this issue), the link should then appear. If you are still can't see the link check your browser is not in incognito mode, as you will be unable to see the link if the browser is in incognito mode.
