MS365 iOS

Office365 apps are available from the iTunes App Store, this allows you to use the Microsoft Apps to connect to mail, and other collaboration tools.

More information on downloading them to your IOS based device, iPhone, iPod or iPad can be found from the following URL


The default Mail app does not list Office365 Groups which you may be a member of, so if you wish to see these in as folders in your mailbox then use the Outlook app to connect to your Mersey Weaver mail account.

When connecting your Outlook mail app to your account, ensure you choose “Exchange” not “Outlook”.

What happens to my account if I leave?

If you leave MonScouts, your account will be archived and then deleted after 90 days. It may be made available to your scouting line manager in the 90 days period for continuity and compliance purposes. However this is done on a case by case request, and subject to the approval of the District Commissioner and relevant scouting line manager of the individual.

MS Teams

Microsoft Teams is a unified communication and collaboration platform that combines chat, video meetings, file storage (including collaboration on files), and application integration. The service integrates with our Office 365 subscription and features extensions that can integrate with non-Microsoft products. Microsoft Teams is a comparable to services such as Slack, WhatsApp and Zoom and is the evolution from Skype for Business. Teams allows communities, groups, or teams to join online voice or video meetings through a link or invitation or host live broadcasts.

MS Teams is more secure than Zoom as it is encrypted end-to-end and only those invited can join a meeting.

Live event

Microsoft Teams live events are an extension of Teams meetings that enable you to schedule and produce events that stream to large online audiences!

There are two ways you can produce a live event:

Production toolDescription
TeamsPlug in your laptop and go…Produce the live event using Teams, a lightweight option to create the event and invite presenters and panelists to participate on their own devices.
An external app or deviceProfessional camera and sound setupProduce the live event using an external hardware or software encoder via Microsoft Stream. Use this option if you already have a production setup (for example, media mixers) that supports streaming to an RTMP service. This method is typically used in auditorium events, such as town halls, where a stream from a media mixer is broadcast to the audience.

Who can attend live events ?

Public events

If an event is public, anyone who has the link can attend without logging in.

Private events

If attendance is restricted to your org or to specific people and groups, attendees will need to log in to join.
