If there are no scheduled meetings listed on the welcome screen, the Surface Hub is free to use—just sign in and start working.

How you meet is up to you—you can dive right into Microsoft Whiteboard and start drawing out your ideas, open up your recent files to see them on the big screen and get real-time feedback from your team, and start a call with Teams or Skype. Get creative and work however works best for that moment—it’s up to you.

Schedule a meeting


It’s easy to schedule a meeting on a Surface Hub—just invite it to the meeting like you would a person. Include the Surface Hub on the invite list of your meeting—you’ll be able to see its availability just like you can the other people you’re inviting.

If you don’t know the name of the Surface Hub you want, select Call  on the welcome screen, and then look for the email address of the Surface Hub listed under Organizer. That's the email address you should invite to your meeting.
