Guide to configure a basic Governance Team for Office 365

If you are looking for a solution / tool to get you started with Governance in the shortest possible time (and which still gives you great value) I have, in this post, in the Microsoft Tech Community forum for Microsoft Teams, made a step-by-step description on how to configure a Microsoft Team to solve this.

 

What areas should be addressed in Office 365 Governance Plans?

I have previously written some articles on how to manage governance in Office 365. Many people have read these articles and contacted me to get to know more about the subject. I have previously described how to use Microsoft Teams as a tool for Office 365 Governance, but I have not previously mentioned so much about the governance plans that are more or less the heart of the concept.

Who should be able to create new teams and how to handle it?

The answer is (as so often) here too “It depends”

Here are some examples of solutions you can choose based on your needs. (Of course, there are many other solutions “out there” but the tools are usually the same.)

How “What’s New for me” can become “What’s new for Us”.

How do i stay updated?

In Office 365 there are a lot of news and updates all the time and it is hard to stay on top of all the stuff you need to be aware of in order to be able to plan for upcoming changes. I do my very best to stay updated on what’s new within the workloads/services that are most relevant to me and my customers. My primary sources are The fabulous “Microsoft Community”, Microsoft 365 Roadmap, Office 365 Message Center, Twitter and LinkedIn.

For me it is important to share news, updates, findings, opportunities, obstacles and general knowledge about Office 365 and most of its services. I share it with Customers, Colleagues and the Community. For me this is the best way to learn and it is also of a great value for me that my customers are informed and updated so that we have a common understanding and thus can have a dialogue on how to manage and implement everything new.

What “Shifts” you may be thinking?

With great probability you already have access to Shifts. But as with everything else, you may need to consider whether this should already be available to all users. You may need time to see the benefits of it and of course plan how you might roll out this functionality to your organization.

Office 365 Retention, Disposal and archiving. How hard can it be?

If you are using Office 365 and want to define rules for retention, disposal and archiving, it is not something that is particularly difficult to activate (It is rare that features are difficult to activate…). Continue reading “Office 365 Retention, Disposal and archiving. How hard can it be?”

Oh no! What has happened to my files !!!

An accident happens so easily.

What if your files are deleted or overwritten? They may even become corrupt or in the worst case infected with malicious software. It starts to creep in the body and whizzes in the ears. The butterflies begin to flaunt in your stomach and the sweat rushes into your forehead. What in the world should you do now? Continue reading “Oh no! What has happened to my files !!!”
