Do I need to connect to the Virtual Desktop Service (VDS) or Remote Desktop (RDC) to communicate via Webex or MS Teams?

Do I need to connect to the Virtual Desktop Service (VDS) or Remote Desktop (RDC) to communicate via Webex or MS Teams?

Aimed at:  Edinburgh Napier’s staff

No, in fact we would advise you against connecting to the VDS or RDS  when participating in any type of video call. 

You will get a far better experience by connecting the Webex or MS Teams directly from your home machine.

Tip: If you need to share documents on your online meeting, make sure you save these in SharePoint or OneDrive so you can access them via Office 365.
