To use Howspace in Microsoft Teams make sure the feature is enabled and configured for your account. Find the configuration instructions here:

Enabling Microsoft Teams login for your workspace

To be able to use your workspace in Microsoft teams, make sure the workspace login settings are correct:

Enable SSO login for the workspace, select the Azure AD configuration and enable the tab that allows users to log in with Microsoft Teams. Allowing registration for external users is optional.

There is an option to allow external users (who are not part of your azure ad and do not have SSO access) to participate during meetings. Enable the tab from the workspace settings to allow external users. When they join the meeting they can interact with the workspace after verifying their email with a PIN code.

If you want everyone from the Microsoft Teams channel or meeting to be able to access the workspace, enable 'Create SSO users automatically'. Without this option only users who have been added to the workspace can access it and others will get an error page.

The Howspace app in Microsoft Teams is slightly different from the browser version. The integration does not include a top menu bar that contains all the pages of the workspace, nor is there the Action menu where users can see their profile, bookmark the page or logout etc. The live widget is not available within Microsoft Teams.

Individual Howspace pages can be added directly into your Microsoft Teams channel or meeting. The pages cannot be modified or edited directly in Microsoft Teams, it is meant to be used to engage participants. Make sure to build your workspace pages in the browser before hand.
