A Microsoft advert popped up on my social media yesterday. It was discussing Microsoft Teams. I'm not sure if they don't think I have teams yet (and have got the wrong social media advertising partner), or if they think that I am not using every feature I can and want me to play a little more?
If its option 1 then they are wasting their money... If it's option 2 then they may have a point.
Teams now has 20m daily active users – growing every day and if you use Office365 then you may already have free access to Microsoft Teams. If not, it is certainly a time to ask your 365 admin (whether that's us or someone internally) for some help getting you going. It really is a gamechanger for all those working from home right now.
We're carrying out regular customer service meetings with internal teams and clients, having regular Director catch-ups about Covid-19 and our wider team are collaborating as effectively as ever.
We are even having video meetings, chats and discussions with external clients through the Guest functionality (another thing which is slightly hidden but easily unlocked).
In essence, Microsoft Teams is an excellent tool for document storage, messaging /chats, sharing files, online meetings and screen sharing.
Key features (some you will know, and some you may not) include:
So teams is great.... How do I get it you say!
If you don’t currently have free access to Teams then this can be set up quite quickly
