Getting Started with Read for Teams

Using the Read with Teams Meetings

To access Read Dashboard, you will need a paid Teams or Microsoft 365 account and a free Read account. The Read Navigator App may be disabled by your organization. In this case, contact your organization's administrator to enable the App.

Logging in and Authorizing the Read Navigator App (First Time User)

On the left side of Teams select Apps and search for the Read Navigator app. Select the app and then to add the app, select Add to a meeting.

When you first add Read Navigator you will be asked to “Set up Read Navigator in a meeting.” Search for your meeting and then select “Set up a tab.”

If the Read App hasn’t been approved you will get this message “Teams Admin hasn't approved permissions for Read yet. Ask your Teams Admin to approve our app via the following link: …” You will then need to provide that link to an Admin that is authorized to approve the Read App.

Once authorized you will get a message that says “Thanks for using. Looks like you're configured and ready to go. Click "Save" below to get started!” Just click Save and Read will join your meeting.

Logging in and Authorizing the Read Navigator App (Returning User)

As a returning user, you will need to add the Read Navigator app to each of your meetings by:
Step 1. Selecting “Apps” on the left side of Teams
Step 2. Selecting Read, and then “Add to a Meeting”
Step 3. Search for your meeting and then select “Set up a tab.”
Step 4. You will get a welcome message from Read, select “Save” to continue.

Data and privacy measures

Read prioritizes privacy and transparency.
Every meeting Read measures is encrypted, and Read does not provide call playback options.
Clear notification:
All meeting attendees are notified when Read Navigator joins a call, and have the option to view the dashboard as well.
Easy opt out:
The notification allows users to opt-out by typing "opt-out" in chat. When a participant chooses to opt-out, Read Navigator leaves the meeting and all data measured is deleted.
