Fix for Issues With TEAMS on School Computers

DISTANCE LEARNERS: If TEAMS isn't working for you, your computer needs an update so restart your computer.

If that does not work, try the following:
>Click Start (Windows icon (4 squares) in lower left corner)
> Click user account icon (student's initials or a silhouette of man in the circle)
> Choose "Change Account Settings"
> On the left click "Access work or school"
> Click "Connected to Rutherford County Schools’ Azure AD"
> Click "Info"
> Scroll down and choose Sync
> Stay on the page and make sure it successfully syncs.
> Restart computer and log in

If this does not work the device needs to be returned and swapped out for another.
