Dynamic E911 for Work from Home Users


Dynamic e911 provides the stability to dynamically detect a Microsoft Teams user’s location for emergency calls.

For AgriLife users at a registered office location, this is done automatically, and this option will not be available in your Microsoft Teams settings.

For users working from home or from an alternate work location, you will need to set your Emergency Address in the Calls tab of the Teams Desktop using the 3 steps below.

Note: For Mobile users (Android and iOS,) your location is detected through your cellular network, so you will not need to complete these steps.


Step 1

Click on Location not detected to select a previously entered address or add a new address

Step 2

Click on +Add

Step 3

Enter the full physical address for the location you are currently working from

Then click on the Add button

Final Result

Once the address has been added, your Microsoft Teams app should show the address of your location.

If you need to update your address, you can use these steps.
