5 Tips To Happily Onboard Users To Microsoft Teams

Microsoft have a new app on the block – Microsoft Teams. It’s amazing and you really want your company to take it up. As with all software changes there can be some push back. Microsoft have made this easy for you here with some easy-to-sell features.

This app is the upgrade to Skype for Business and there are features inside the app that allow you to control the migration from Skype to Microsoft Teams with ease. This app is going to revolutionise how your company operates. In a few months time everyone will be wondering how they worked before. But at the start people will need convincing so we’ve prepared some arguments for you.

The app allows you to separate your organisation into different teams based on whatever you want. Inside each ‘Team’ there are channels so that communication about a particular topic can be found in one place.

One App For All Communication

You don’t need to move between an instant messaging service to your email. You don’t need to search for that message someone sent about the new project you are working on. You don’t even need to pick up the phone. That’s right – all of this is in Microsoft Teams.

Messages , emails, documents are all organised under the channels within a team and the app makes it clear what you have missed and most importantly what chats and channels have messages specifically for you.

Put your phone away – Microsoft Teams has got you covered. You can call another team member or any number – all from inside the app.

Makes Meetings A Breeze

Online meetings are now a common feature of our daily routines. This app takes them to the next level allowing video, audio and document sharing within a meeting. A great feature is that when you join a meeting it gives you a pre-meeting screen allowing you to adjust your camera and microphone before you join the meeting properly. It also lets you know who has already joined the meeting and if you are late.

A brilliant feature is that meetings can be recorded. So if people miss a meeting they don’t actually miss anything. A feature of this is that the app captions the audio of the meeting allowing you to go back to the video and find a particular topic with ease.

Some other cool features are that you can blur your background so that you can easily participate in meetings wherever you are. This is a huge win for the Microsoft Teams app! It removes all the clunky problems from Skype and any other third party apps like Zoom and adds some great features at the same time.

Where Did I Save That File?

This well never enter your mind again. With the App utilising Sharepoint’s power, documents can be uploaded to a channel for live edits by everyone. The software looks after conflict resolution. Another great feature is that as soon as a document is uploaded to a channel the live-edit version will be available in that Team’s Files, so you will quickly be able to locate the most up-to-date version of a file.

I cannot stress how great this feature is. No longer will you have to wait for someone to email you the most up-to-date version of a file. You can both work on it at the same time and everyone in the Team knows where the file can be found. Gone are the days where you will need to remember the locations of files.

A Team’s Area Is Their Own

A team’s area and channels are theirs. They can customize it so it works best for them – giving them buy in and making it belong to them. There are heaps of gifs and emojis that can make the workplace fun.

There are hundreds of add-ons that can enhance Microsoft Teams functionality for a team to make it work for them. This will let them feel like the IT professionals having control over how their work gets done. This will also build in efficiency as better tools for a particular task are found.

Integrate Your Favourite Apps

Microsoft Teams allows you to use Microsoft and third party apps within it. In your dashboard you can have Microsoft apps like Planner & Power BI. Having this power all within one app is fantastic. You don’t need to waste time changing programs. Also having access to third party apps achieves the same function.

There is an ever growing list of apps that can be integrated with Microsoft Teams – some stand outs for me were: Mailchimp and Asana. This is another great area where a user can make the app their own. They can integrate other apps into Microsoft Teams to get better functionality out of both apps.
