Hi Lyndsey, thanks for your message. I’m afraid I don’t have the answer, but if you follow this link that will take you to a Microsoft Teams Drop In site. Here, you can ask your question in the ASK FOR HELP channel – but don’t forget to check back for the answer! I’ve also passed your name onto one of our learning tech consultants who, depending on availability, should be getting in touch. Thanks, hope that helps.
