Microsoft Teams (Devices): Phone Options

Microsoft Teams is a fully functioning phone system. Employees could, theoretically, just use their laptop for all calling functions. However, to make/receive calls in an office setting, most people will need or prefer to use a headset or desk phone. UW-Stout has different options for external devices depending on your needs & preferences.

Headsets

Headsets are great for workers who need a hands-free experience. They also offer maximum flexibility to work from anywhere as they can easily move with your laptop. Headsets are reliable and inexpensive to maintain. Headsets allow stable and consistent calling and require little to support, thus are recommended for most employees.
