Jay and Craig talked about of the newest features rolling out, or soon to be rolling out for the Microsoft Teams platform from Lists to Breakout Rooms to Meeting Publishing and Ignite. There’s a lot to unpack, This Week in Teams.
This week Jay and Craig talked about some important considerations around managing your Teams, such as: naming conventions, team creation, managing membership, and the ever popular guest accesses vs. external users.
After weeks of new features and deep dives into various capabilities that compliment the Teams platform, Jay and Craig decided to go back to basics. This Week in Teams we provide an introduction to #MicrosoftTeams. We talk about what Teams IS: the hub for M365 but also the hub for the enterprise with its ever-expanding extensibility. We also talked about the base for Teams: SharePoint, OneDrive, and Exchange Server. And, we discussed if a Team should be Organizational or Functional (sneak peek: It depends).
This Week in Teams, Craig and Jay focus on the new Tasks App, it’s connection to the To Dos in Outlook, and the incredible business value of Planner. All the with help of our special guest, Stacy Deere-Strole (MVP).
This week, Craig and Jay invite Bobby Chang, a Microsoft Business Apps Technical Specialist for the US Federal/Civilian market, to talk about DataFlex. DataFlex Pro and DataFlex for Teams were recently announced at Microsoft Inspire and in this conversation Bobby tells us why this is important, not just to technologists, but to end users and the business side of your enterprise.
Slack is suing Microsoft, Google thinks Gmail is “the way”, Zoom is no longer leading live meeting usage, the NBA and Microsoft are “Together” Mode. And Microsoft Inpspire was last week.
Who are these people, and what happened to Craig? This week we invited Sven and Matt to talk about their newly released eBook, Rockstar Meetings with Microsoft Teams. Unfortunately, Craig’s internet service provider decided it was a good time for an outage, so he couldn’t join us. Hopefully, Jay sufficiently kept the conversation going without… Continue Reading →
This week Craig and Jay dig into the recent meeting enhancement updates. We’ve been talking about 7×7 video mode since Microsoft announced 3×3, and we’ve started to see the new 49-person mode in the wild. And then, seemingly out of nowhere, they released “together” mode. Other things we discussed included Cortana in the mobile app, a little more information on the Tasks app (joining Outlook Tasks, Planner, and more), and some updates on the Power Platform.
On This Week in Teams, July 4, 2020, we talk about Zoom’s 90 day Security release cycle, Reliance Jio Platform’s new Meet product, and the Microsoft Store closures. Then, we get into the products.
This Week (in Teams, I couldn’t resist) we talk about Teams Live and how to get the most out of producing video content for broadcast. Teams Live, in contrast to Teams Meetings, gives producers a one-way broadcast capability for education events, town halls, and other events where sending out audio, video, and screen sharing is of value, but it makes more sense to have few content creators and many listeners. Up to 20,000 per meeting in fact. Check out these post-event details to see how they did this MASSIVE event.
To start, our examples focus on the Microsoft community itself. Well known for our Microsoft/Azure/Office365/SharePoint User Groups and (SPS) Saturday events, like much of the world, the community has found itself canceling events and moving online. The big sample is a 36-hour event with nearly 400 presentations and over 20,000 attendees — the Microsoft 365 Virtual Marathon was an impressive feat and a spotlight of our Teams Live use case.
Lest we not forget to announce the third panel in our video, we are joined by the Cloud Talk Show (cloudtalkshow.com) co-host, Software Architect, and self-proclaimed Microsoft Aficionado, Ralph Rivas.
