#Microsoft365 – Microsoft Teams – by far my ‘blue-eyed boy’ in the Microsoft stack. I consider Teams as the gateway drug which leads to consumption of all the other awesome apps and services. This is my entry point when assisting companies with their journey to Office 365 greatness.

Due to some very urgent matters I had to take a break from blogging for about 2.5 weeks. I’m 19 days ‘behind’ on my ‘self inflicted’ blog challenge. And even though this challenge is different from the last, as I said I’ll write 365 blogs in 365 days, which means I can miss some and catch up again (previous one I wrote a blog every single day for 365 days), there is something I’d like to share with you.

When you lower your standards, you lower your goals. #ThatIsAll

I seriously regret this as now I’ve become slack about it. Shame on me – once caught up I’ll go back to one every day – as that’s what drives me to achieve my goals. So… let’s do this.

Microsoft Teams – Woooohooooo!! Guest Access now available!!

Think it’s odd that I call it a “Gateway Drug”? Well, it is – but in a really good way 🙂

For years I’ve been playing in the Change Management / Training / User Adoption space – and believe me – it’s a difficult thing. Needs a lot of hand-holding & TLC. Too much change at once is also a problem as people can only deal with so much ‘newness’ at one time. Teams has completely changed this for me – but more about that and the guest access in tomorrow’s post. Today we’ll take a look at what Microsoft Teams gives you + some valuable resources.

See content and chat history anytime in team chat or in private chat. Schedule small group or team meetings. Post an email in the thread to keep the team in the loop. Search for public teams to collaborate on shared projects. All your content, tools, people, and conversations are available in the team workspace. Enjoy built-in access to SharePoint, OneNote, and Skype for Business. Work on documents right in the app. Get rich scheduling features inside Microsoft Teams, plus ad-hoc 1-1 and group calling. Tailor your Microsoft Teams workspace to quickly access key documents and tools, explore data and get updates from the apps your teams uses every day. Create different chat channels for the team based on work streams or topics. Customize notifications so you don’t miss important activity and information. Read more…

Introducing Teams:


Purpose of this blog challenge:

I will write 365 blogs in 365 days around Microsoft 365. I did a similar challenge with Office 365, blogs can be found here. I won’t just be talking about the new Microsoft 365 subscription model. I will be sharing any news, tips and tricks around Office / Office 365 / Windows / Mobility and Security. And let’s not forget all the great new Apps & services available.  A lot of what I’ll share on Office and SharePoint will also be applicable to none “Office 365” versions.
