Should I sign in to the Surface Hub or to individual apps?

The answer depends on what you are doing on the Hub.

Here are some rules of thumb:

Sign in to the Hub when you want:
  • Access to all your files
  • Access to your Teams account
Sign in to individual apps when you want:
  • To save files you create on the Hub for later
  • To share files with others while collaborating on the Hub
No need to sign in if:
  • Using the web browser
  • Using apps temporarily 
    • If you decide you want to save a file for later, you can sign into individual apps before closing it.

Even if you do not sign in, make sure you END SESSION before leaving the Surface Hub so that your work and files are cleared for the next user.
