We use Microsoft Teams Live Events to deliver online support to our members.

  2. You can choose to download the Teams app or watch on the web.

  3. You'll see different instructions based on how you join the event (like from the Teams app or the web). Sign in, if you have an @merseysidescouts.com account; or select Join anonymously.

  4. If the live event hasn't started, you'll see the message "The live event has not yet started." Please wait for the meeting to start.

  5. There are controls at the bottom of your screen to pause the action, adjust volume and the video quality. If you accidentally press the pause button, simply press it again to resume.

  6. If you leave the live event, you can rejoin by clicking the original live event link.

You can also ask questions in many of our live events. To ask a question:
