#Microsoft365 #Office365 #MSTeams On the 29th of January, the Personal view of your apps was launched for Microsoft Teams. I was super excited to see it appear in my MS Teams App a day later. Woooohooooo!! Lets take a look at what this new feature offers.

For previous posts in my #Microsoft365Challenge go to the index page.

Access a personal view of your apps—The new personal apps space makes it easy for you to access the apps you care about and see all the items that you have been assigned to across apps, like tasks in Planner, issues in Jira Cloud, or your filters or pull requests in Bitbucket Cloud. You can also easily see items you have recently accessed, such as OneNote notebooks or videos from Microsoft Stream. Read article...

Take a look at the Office 365 Roadmap and you have to agree – Teams is SO HOT right now 🙂

Roadmap can be found here.

In Microsoft Teams you’ll now notice the ellipses (…) below the Files icon on the left. This will open OneNote, Planner, Stream and allow you to add Who as well as other apps.

To explain what this does I’ll first go back to the Files icon (1) above it. This is where you can add other Cloud Storage you use (2) you’ll see all the documents you work with (3), modified date (4) and show the locations of the files (5). It also allows you to open, edit and download the documents from here by clicking on the ellipses next to the location (6):

What’s happening here is that Microsoft is bringing all the resources and tools together for you to be more efficient, right here in Teams. Pretty awesome right?!

This new addition allows for us to add other apps we use based on our user – so not filtered by your team. Now you don’t have to leave MS Teams to work in your other favourite apps.

Now as mentioned, click on the ellipses below Files and you’ll see OneNote, Planner, Stream, Who and More Apps.

OneNote

  • Personal:  Shows all my Notebook locations, choose a notebook and allows me to open the difference sections/pages and make changes.
  • Recent:  Shows all OneNotes you’ve worked with, recently.
  • Teams:  Displays the OneNote notebooks from your various Teams.

Planner

  • My Tasks:  Which displays all tasks assigned to you
  • Recent:  Shows recent plans you’ve worked on
  • All:  Displays all the plans you are ‘part’ of.

Stream:

My Watchlist:  Shows videos you’ve added to your watchlist on Stream, as well as Recent and All videos.

More Apps:

This opens the store which you’ll also find as a button lower down on the left, above feedback (you’ll notice that your profile pick and settings have now moved to the top right of the app).

Here you can add other apps you’d like to see under your personal apps:

Loving it Microsoft!!! 🙂

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.
