In this session of This Week in Teams, Craig Jahnke and Jay Leask invited Amanda Sterner to discuss the many features and enhancements that we’ve seen over the past few months within Microsoft Teams meetings which continue to enhance how Microsoft Teams meetings support a work-from-home environment.
This Week in Teams Craig and Jay review the November 2020 “What’s New in Teams” blog and tell you what (we think) is most important! We’ll also tell you a little about why PowerApps is insanely cool, and maybe update you on our Christmas decorations.
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.
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.
