Great Resources When Getting Started with Microsoft Teams
Microsoft Teams saw a jump in users by 40% in the past week. With more and more workplaces moving to online interactions, this software provides an excellent way for you to move to virtual meetings.
At Reenhanced, we moved to Teams last year and have fully embraced it. We use it for demos, meetings, to collaborate with our internal team and to meet with our clients. We have worked remote for years now. One quick tip for those of you who are getting started with it: turn on your camera during Teams meetings. Put a personal touch to your meeting! Even if you may be a bit uncomfortable, showing your face during a meeting will help give very important nonverbal cues even when you’re miles apart.
I have a few great resources I share with our clients who are interested in learning more about Microsoft Teams. These are Microsoft created documents designed to get you up and running quickly and help train your end users. I hope they are helpful for you!
Microsoft is graciously providing organizations with licenses for Microsoft Teams for free for six months amidst the coronavirus epidemic.
