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.
01-15-2019 Chris McNulty published Delivering SharePoint modern experiences on The SharePoint Community blog.
Today it is 03-28-2019 and Monday coming week will be the “big date” 04-01-2019 when the roll out starts.
In other words, whether you are a “prepper” or not, Now it is getting a little hurry for those of you who have not yet checked how you might be affected by this update. Maybe time to roll up your sleeves and take a look at your SharePoint sites and not least inform your users about the upcoming change.
What should you do now?
- Read the article “Delivering SharePoint modern experiences” to see what options You have.
- Identify the impact
- Disable modern experience for specific site collections (but only If You need to)
- Inform the users so that they understand the difference between Classic and Modern.
- Last but not least: Embrace the “Modern Experience” and the improvements it brings.
Sometimes it goes a little too fast in the turns and some quick-fingered person does something he regrets. In such situations, it is nice to be able to restore the order so that everything becomes peace and joy again. With regard to Channels in Microsoft Teams, it is, thankfully, almost as easy to recreate the deleted Channels as it was to delete them. Continue reading “Has a channel been deleted from your Team? Don’t worry, this is how you easily recreate it!”
Are you one of the “chosen ones” with responsibility to keep track of changes in one or more services in Office 365? Congratulations, then your job has just become a little easier. With the new “Microsoft 365 Roadmap” it is now much easier to create filtered views that show the updates that are relevant to you.
As you may have read in my previous posts regarding “Office 365 Governance“, I use Microsoft Teams to get an overview of updates as well as structuring governance plans. I have a Team where each service has its own channel. In the channel of each service, I have (among other things) a tab that shows the “Office 365 roadmap” in a view that I have filtered to show updates only for the current service.
Now, when the new “Microsoft 365 Roadmap” was launched, of course, my previous home-made filtered views were broken. Sometimes this type of change causes some degree of irritation but this time it was only positive. The filtration capabilities of the Microsoft 365 Roadmap are much better than they were in the Office 365 Roadmap.
So now I’m sitting here, sipping a cup of coffee, creating new filtered views and updating my tabs. Below is an example of how easy you can create a filtered view that shows the updates for the service “Microsoft Teams” and how you embed the filtered view in a tab of a channel in your “Office 365 Governance Team”.
Open the Microsoft 365 Roadmap
Filter on the service “Microsoft Teams” and status “In development” and “Rolling out”.
Copy the url of the view
Open Your Office 365 Governance Team, go to the channel of the service and edit the url of the Roadmap tab.
The filtered view in the roadmap tab is now only displaying updates for the current service and you do not have to view the updates of the services that you are not responsible for. This saves you from unnecessary noise that could otherwise steal your focus from your core area.
Now, repeat this exercise and update the “Roadmap tabs” for the channels of the other services.
When you work in Microsoft Teams and your status is set to “do not disturb”, it’s logical that you will not receive any notifications. However, there is a feature that allows you to override this feature.
Despite the status “Do not disturb” you can receive notifications from specific (and extra important) people, such as your boss.
Here’s how to do it
- Click on your profile picture
- Click on Settings
- Click on Privacy
- Click on the button “Manage priority access
- Add those people who shall be entitled to disturb you even if your status is “do not disturb”.
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.
