Do you need a plan for how you can (and should) migrate files to Office 365?

How hard can it be? (my favorite phrase, in addition to “It depends”)

Isn’t it just about opening Windows Explorer and dragging over the files where they should be? Or can you not only use a script or a tool to copy all files to SharePoint and then start cleaning? Continue reading “Do you need a plan for how you can (and should) migrate files to Office 365?”

If you experience that one or more Office 365 services are slow

Do you mount old tires on your new car?
Are you buying new shoes and moving over the soles of your old ones?

Where to find quick answers to questions about Microsoft Teams

Have you ever experienced challenges and problems with Microsoft Teams and had difficulties finding a solution quickly? Perhaps you have had questions about functionality that your nearest network contacts have not been able to answer?

A good source of knowledge that is constantly updated with the most common, and most well-known issues, are “Known Issues for Microsoft Teams.” If you do not immediately find the right answer there, you can always proceed to Microsoft Tech Community and search for answers and/or ask a question that reaches to thousands of active contributors, and you’ll probably get the solution quickly.

In order to accomplish this, it is important that you initially always begin to ensure that all end-users have the necessary Office 365 URLs and required Trusted sites rolled out on their clients.
