We will learn how Microsoft Teams will help us to collaborate with confidence, while meeting regulatory and business requirements.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="JohnG1.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/261257iBEE72F356FA2BD7E/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="JohnG1.png" alt="JohnG1.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>John begins by explaining that we have seen online communication with Microsoft Teams evolve beyond just meetings and chat. Teams has kept us connected with friends and colleagues and enabled us to get our work done remotely. However, this increase in remote working has brought more challenges to IT and Security teams who are facing increasing cyber security threats such as malicious documents and attachments, and mounting compliance obligations to protect organizational data.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>A recent Harvard Business Review study shows that 77% of organizations agree that an effective security, compliance, and risk strategy is essential for business success, while 82% also acknowledge increased risks and complexities have made an effective strategy significantly more challenging.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Security1.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/261258iB6C1849BC26E06CD/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Security1.png" alt="Security1.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>This has made Microsoft keenly aware that it is crucial to remain focused on helping organizations enable both secure and compliant collaboration without interrupting the ways in which end users are able to collaborate with each other.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>The unique advantage that Microsoft Teams provides is the fact that it is a centralized platform for collaboration. This enables organizations reduce shadow IT and the use of fragmented collaboration services which can lead to data sprawl which in turn can lead to data leaks.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>John goes on to share with us some key areas where Teams has been investing, and how these investments will help organizations achieve the correct Security &amp; Compliance strategy.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Rushmi Malaviarachchi, Partner Director of Program Management for Microsoft Teams is introduced and talks with John about how Microsoft Teams has evolved to become a content generating platform; when users work together in chat, video calls, channels, collaborating on documents, or even within custom or third-party apps, these activities create valuable business content that needs to be protected. Rushi went on to highlight the following plans and announcements for Security and Compliance in Microsoft Teams:</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Rushmi Malaviarachchi.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/261259i41CFEDD6DE8349AA/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Rushmi Malaviarachchi.png" alt="Rushmi Malaviarachchi.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Adaptive cards now in scope</STRONG> <BR />Microsoft recently announced that Adaptive card content generated in Teams Apps is now in scope for compliance capabilities. More than 70% of Teams apps today generate card content in Teams conversation. When an app posts a card to a chat, the content of that card will be visible in eDiscovery, can be preserved with Legal Hold, covered by retention policies, and any actions people take on that card will be available in the audit log.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Teams Multi-Geo</STRONG><BR />Also announced in relation to the critical subject of Data residency was that Microsoft have carefully listened to customer feedback, and they are extending Microsoft 365 Multi-Geo support to include Microsoft Teams so you can specify where your Teams data at rest will sit. You will be able to set the Geo-location for both individual users and teams. The roll out of Teams Multi-Geo is planned for the 2nd quarter of this year and this is going to be welcome news for many organizations with a global footprint who have very specific data residency obligations.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Multi-geo.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/261260i82DA92883AD31B00/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Multi-geo.png" alt="Multi-geo.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Secure Score</STRONG><BR />The Microsoft Secure Score helps to prevent unwanted incidents across Microsoft 365 services including - Exchange Online, Azure Active Directory, Microsoft Defender for Endpoint, Microsoft Defender for Identity, and Cloud App Security. Microsoft Teams has recently also been brought into scope for Secure Score and more configuration best practices will be coming soon so watch this space!</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Azure Sentinel</STRONG><BR />Beyond prevention, the correct systems to detect when an intrusion event is happening is of key importance. In Teams, Microsoft have been bolstering the events that are collected by the audit log, so that now the Microsoft Security Information &amp; Event Management (SIEM) tool - Azure Sentinel, can analyze what is going on within Teams and be on the lookout for threats, and use playbooks to respond.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Customer key</STRONG><BR />Also announced was that bring your own key for Microsoft Teams will be rolling out in the second quarter of this year.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>A frictionless approach</STRONG><BR />The overall theme of aiming for secure organizational collaboration was that it needs to be frictionless. The balance between security and useability is an important consideration, but these principles should not be at odds with each other.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Fritctionless cross organization collaboration will be bolstered by the introduction of shared channels which was also announced at Ignite. In conjunction with the use of technologies such as Microsoft Information Protection across the collaboration space, a label driven approach using sensitivity labels and leveraging conditional access will help to break down traditional collaboration boundaries.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Meeting safety</STRONG></P> <P>Next, Mansoor Malik, Principal Group Manager, Microsoft Teams discussed the hugely important subject of meeting safety in Microsoft Teams.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Mansoor Malik.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/261261i59458EBB3255F1A2/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Mansoor Malik.png" alt="Mansoor Malik.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Meeting safety covers a wide range of criteria, which includes meeting participants, content being presented, who can present that content, what is being recorded, and who can record.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>One of the big concerns that Microsoft are keenly aware of is uninvited attendees getting into meetings. Being able to control meeting intruders and disruptors, especially in the student and classroom space is crucially important, and if this subject is not correctly addressed, then mental health and wellbeing can be put at risk.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Microsoft have been working to provide brand new meeting controls, such as preventing anonymous attendees from being able to join meetings at an organization level through policy.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Restricting the ability to forward meeting invites is also a very welcome introduction.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Meeting Invite.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/261262iC0F1B2058DB16E55/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Meeting Invite.png" alt="Meeting Invite.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>In addition, new lobby bypass setting controls will provide the ability to allow only specific invitees to bypass the lobby.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Lobby.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/261263i767149997B94D977/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Lobby.png" alt="Lobby.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>And meeting safety does not stop there. There will also be options for allowing or not allowing attendees to present, chat or unmute, and it was also announced that the ability for meeting organizers to disable video for all attendees is coming soon.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>End-to-end encryption</STRONG><BR />Mansoor also talked about End-to-end encryption for Microsoft Teams. This is a new feature that is coming soon and will provide the ability in Teams to encrypt at the origin and decrypt at the destination. Initially this will only be supported in Teams 1:1 VOIP calls and only participating parties in the End-to-end encryption communication will be able to access the content. The announcement of End-to-end encryption is based on year-long feedback and Teams will be introducing the ability to use End-to-end encryption for 1:1 calls in the coming months.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="end-to-end encryption.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/261264i0B181D44412D5246/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="end-to-end encryption.png" alt="end-to-end encryption.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Some important considerations for End-to-end encryption:</P> <UL> <LI>Both the caller and callee in the 1:1 call will need to have been enabled by administrators for End-to-end encryption</LI> <LI>Only voice, video and screen sharing in those 1:1 calls will be end to end encrypted.</LI> </UL> <P>Microsoft will continue to talk to customers about widening the scope of this crucial new feature, and you can expect to see End-to-end encryption come to Microsoft Teams meetings next. Watch out for more details available soon.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Summary</STRONG></P> <P>This was a fast paced and engaging session that gave us a glimpse of what is to come for Security and Compliance in Microsoft Teams. I must say that I am hugely encouraged by what this session revealed. Microsoft customers have been asking the correct questions, and Microsoft are providing some very good answers in return.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>I will surely be testing and reporting on these features as they become available and if you would like to discuss any of these with me then please feel free to reach out to me in the Microsoft Technical Community.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>I hope you have enjoyed this Ignite as much as I have, and I wish you a frictionless experience in your Microsoft Teams journey moving forward!</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Further reading</P> <UL> <LI><A href="https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-blog/what-s-new-in-microsoft-teams-microsoft-ignite-2021/ba-p/2118226" target="_blank" rel="noopener">What's New in Microsoft Teams | Microsoft Ignite 2021</A></LI> <LI><A href="https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-blog/secure-and-compliant-collaboration-with-microsoft-teams/ba-p/2169463" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Secure and compliant collaboration with Microsoft Teams</A></LI> <LI><A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Rewatch this Ignite featured session on demand</A></LI> <LI><A href="https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/user/viewprofilepage/user-id/616707" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Microsoft Tech Community profile</A></LI> </UL> Fri, 05 Mar 2021 18:35:23 GMT https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/microsoft-ignite-live-blog-fs191-secure-and-compliant/ba-p/2188561 PeterRising 2021-03-05T18:35:23Z Microsoft Ignite Live Blog: KEY06 - The Hybrid Workplace https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/microsoft-ignite-live-blog-key06-the-hybrid-workplace/ba-p/2188456 <P><STRONG>Blogger:</STRONG> Chris Hoard, Partner Education Lead, Vuzion (UK), MCT Regional Lead, OAS MVP</P> <P><BR /><STRONG>Sessions:</STRONG> <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">KEY06</A>, <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">KEY06-R1</A></P> <P><BR />2020 was a year that changed everything. The way we live. The way we work. As the Covid-19 pandemic spread across borders and over continents organisations in every country of every type needed to adapt in order to survive or to function. We, as IT professionals, came into a situation where it was imperative we act as the first responders. On the one hand we needed to help our customers maintain business operations and keep their workforces secure in the face of growing cyber-attacks. On the other, we needed to support many of our colleagues in this new world of remote working helping to safeguard and ensure their mental and emotional wellbeing. As Jared rightly points out in the opening scene of Hybrid, we also needed to do both of these things whilst navigating our own personal challenges at home. When does work start? When does it stop? Where can our business conversations or activities take place without intruding on the privacy of our loved ones whose home it is as much as ours? Given these new realities, how many of us forget that throughout the pandemic many workers have still needed to go onsite each and every single day as it’s an essential requirement for their job. Think of healthcare workers and construction workers. Think of police, and firefighters, those who work in waste disposal, electricians, plumbers, vets. Think of retail and hospitality. These first-line workers have needed to be able to easily communicate with their remote colleagues whilst at the same time still be safe on the job.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Jared 1.png" style="width: 602px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/261232i0A0AAB06F938CD34/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Jared 1.png" alt="Jared 1.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>As vaccination programs roll out across the world, we now begin to think and to re-imagine how work will be as we enter a period where the pandemic becomes more manageable. What is already clear is that things are not going to return to the way they were pre-pandemic. Some of us will remain at home. Some of us will go back to working or continue to work onsite. Others may choose to work at home or onsite in a hybrid setup depending on how it makes sense to them. This is not conjecture. The statistics back this up. Over 80% of managers expect more flexible work from home policies post-pandemic; 70% of employees expect to adopt flexible work from home policies. Yet the key insight of Hybrid is this: as Jared notes, in our experience of living through the pandemic we come to understand that whilst physical spaces will always be important, we cannot rely on them or being together in person the way that we used to. Because we cannot rely on them, cloud powered technologies such as Microsoft Teams are fundamental to how businesses support working from home, working onsite or anywhere in between. Look at the numbers for Teams since the start of the pandemic - daily active usage (DAU) has rocketed to 115 million, up from 20 million at the end of 2019 when it first emerged out of China. 30 billion collaboration minutes worldwide by Microsoft 365 users in a single day. Astronomical growth.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Jared 2.png" style="width: 602px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/261233i2C536794AF528790/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Jared 2.png" alt="Jared 2.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Yet growth isn’t just about Covid in-itself. Microsoft has worked hard and relentlessly over the course of 2020 to introduce over 100 new features for Microsoft Teams which has helped organisations and their users communicate and collaborate more effectively wherever they may be. Two examples that Hybrid gives to illustrate this are <STRONG>Large Gallery Mode</STRONG> which allows attendees to see more colleagues and up to 49 video feeds at the same time and<STRONG> Together Mode</STRONG> - a unique meeting experience where everyone is together within a virtual shared space designed to reduce meeting fatigue. Going beyond Jared’s examples, some of the other features introduced throughout 2020 include <STRONG>Breakout Rooms, Custom Backgrounds, Hard Mute, Pop Out Chat Meetings and Calling, the New File Experience</STRONG> and <STRONG>closer integration with SharePoint, Sensitivity Labels, Meeting Extensibility, the Yammer communities app, new Power Platform apps, Spotlight mode, Raise Hand, Live Captions, Presence duration</STRONG> and <STRONG>Skype Consumer Interop</STRONG>. It’s difficult to articulate just how much innovation has gone into Teams or do justice to all the passionate engineers and product managers who have clearly thrown themselves into this to deliver the functionality organisations have needed to succeed throughout the pandemic.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Jared 3.png" style="width: 602px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/261235i4B3BFF4BF9BE9DFE/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Jared 3.png" alt="Jared 3.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Moving onto some of the new features for Microsoft Teams which were introduced in Hybrid and which will bring a new dimension to how we will work in the hybrid workplace, we saw <STRONG>Endpoint transfer</STRONG> allowing users to seamlessly move their calls between different devices - for example from a laptop to a mobile device - without any interruption in call service or quality. Great for wanting to get up and go for a walk on that call when you’ve been sitting on that chair at home all day.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Jared 4.png" style="width: 602px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/261236i44386B1CD6C3BF98/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Jared 4.png" alt="Jared 4.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>We saw <STRONG>Dynamic View</STRONG>. Dynamic view intelligently arranges the elements of your meeting for an optimal experience and lets you control who shows up alongside content that’s shared. For example, you can place the gallery at the top of the meeting screen, so people appear at the top of the meeting window enabling a more natural eye gaze with other participants. The participant gallery also auto-adjusts when the meeting window is resized. This will help to make meeting more engaging and, for many of us, help us to break out of the grid view we have become accustomed. It will be great to see colleagues’ reactions as content is shared.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Jared 5.png" style="width: 602px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/261237iCF98DC6B1E55B0DA/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Jared 5.png" alt="Jared 5.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>One of the features announced that will excite many Teams users is <STRONG>Teams Connect</STRONG>, otherwise known as <STRONG>Shared Channels</STRONG>. Teams Connect enables users to share channels in Teams across multiple organizations meaning you can collaborate - chat, meet, use apps, share, and co-author documents in real-time with individuals and teams that have an Azure Active Directory all without having to switch tenants - a pain point for many users and which many IT pros have flagged. Admins have access to granular security and compliance controls, allowing them to stay in control of how external users access data and information. This is a real game changer - and what is less known about Teams connect is that you can share channels across multiple Teams in your own organisation!</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Jared 6.png" style="width: 602px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/261238i55F09F2C53A009C3/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Jared 6.png" alt="Jared 6.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Next, we have <STRONG>Presenter Mode</STRONG>. Presenter mode empowers you as a presenter to customize how your video feed and content appear to the audience. There will be three options available. <STRONG>Standout</STRONG> which shows your video feed in front of the shared content,<STRONG> Reporter</STRONG> which has content as a visual aid above your shoulder like how a news report on television looks and <STRONG>Side-by-side</STRONG> which displays your video feed next to your content. This experience will allow you to form a much stronger connection to your audience where you can transmit your energy and personality into the presentation.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Jared 7.png" style="width: 602px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/261241i3CBB6670F3B14ADB/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Jared 7.png" alt="Jared 7.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Finally, following on from the standard meeting and Live Event we will see the release of <STRONG>Webinars</STRONG>. A meeting organizer can easily add a registration page to a meeting to better manage attendance before and after any engagement. Following registration, attendees will automatically receive an email confirmation with a calendar invite for a simple join experience. Teams will support interactive webinars for up to 1,000 attendees including rich presentation options, reactions, and controls to disable chat, audio, and video. This will seamlessly scale to accommodate 10,000-person view-only broadcast experience and 20,000-person to the end of 2021 to support throughout the pandemic. Following a webinar, the organizer can use reporting to learn who attended and how long they participated. In addition, they can also upload contacts to other marketing tools to manage ongoing communication. All this will be delivered in Q1 2021. Another game changer.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Jared 8.png" style="width: 602px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/261242iA00F2EBE17CFBBCD/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Jared 8.png" alt="Jared 8.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Moving onto Teams Rooms, the hybrid workplace will demand an inclusive and equitable meeting experience whether remote, onsite, or even on the shop floor. Everyone needs to be seen and heard clearly no matter where they join from. L<STRONG>arge gallery view and Together Mode in Microsoft Teams Rooms</STRONG> brings users together in the same form, where a second screen such as a <STRONG>Surface Hub 2S</STRONG> can be used to display and work the content.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Jared 9.png" style="width: 602px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/261243i425B2112B8C0D0E4/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Jared 9.png" alt="Jared 9.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>We will also see the introduction of the <STRONG>intelligent speaker</STRONG>. The intelligent speaker brings speaker attributed captions and transcriptions to Microsoft Teams Room which enables attendees to easily follow along with what has been said and who said it. Using advanced speech recognition powered by Cortana, it can identify and differentiate the voices of up to 10 people in meeting rooms and apply their name and profile picture next to their transcripts.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="speaker.png" style="width: 602px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/261244iC2415B04F65EA1A6/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="speaker.png" alt="speaker.png" /></span></P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Surface Hub 2S.png" style="width: 602px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/261245i497AFB84B2DC14E5/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Surface Hub 2S.png" alt="Surface Hub 2S.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>There were three reasons why this segway on teams meeting rooms was so exciting: Firstly, there was a great demonstration of <STRONG>Virtual Whiteboarding</STRONG> and how people can work together to ideate and be creative from anywhere on any device, using <STRONG>Surface Hub 2S</STRONG> and an iPad as examples. This really drives home how Teams removes location and environment as barriers to share and start a great dialogue with others on the idea we have to move things forward.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="whiteboard.png" style="width: 602px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/261246i57AE05191408B66F/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="whiteboard.png" alt="whiteboard.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><BR />Secondly, Jared gave us a peek into how Microsoft see the new <STRONG>Casting to Teams Rooms</STRONG> evolving and how this could be leveraged to be able to share content on any screen.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Jared 10.png" style="width: 602px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/261247i9FCA7C04AA11C6DE/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Jared 10.png" alt="Jared 10.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Thirdly, Jared also gave us insights into how Microsoft see <STRONG>Microsoft Teams Rooms</STRONG> themselves evolving. Designing for a future of flexible working means rethinking about physical spaces. What does the meeting of future look like? Fluid, dynamic and cloud powered, where everyone feels included, engaged, and empowered to bring their best ideas.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="TeamsRooms.png" style="width: 602px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/261248i7A608806273A760E/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="TeamsRooms.png" alt="TeamsRooms.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>At the conclusion of Hybrid, Jared says that Microsoft are ‘designing experiences to empower people in a work from anywhere world’ where they can work, learn, and collaborate whether that is at home, on the go, in the office, or from the manufacturing floor. Everything shown in this session has been ‘a scaffold to navigate a hybrid world’ with Teams as that organising layer. Yet Teams alone cannot give business leaders such things as ways to foster trust, build a culture and establish deep connections amongst employees - things which ultimately makes for a resilient organisation. This is the beginning of a conversation for <STRONG>Microsoft Viva</STRONG>. Built on Teams, Teams as the foundation of the employee experience as delivered by Viva.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Viva.png" style="width: 602px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/261249i491F1790805EE07F/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Viva.png" alt="Viva.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>For a session that was a little over 15 minutes, this had a significant amount of content and delivered masterfully as you would expect. But why should this session matter to us as IT Pros at all? Because it is important to understand where we are headed. Why is it important to know where we are headed? Because we need to lead and help organisations - our customers as well as our own - re-imagine how work will be as we move into a period where the pandemic becomes manageable. In our experience of living through the pandemic, we come to understand that whilst physical spaces will always be important, we cannot rely on them or being together in person the way that we used to.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>And that is why we need Microsoft Teams. It’s no longer simply a tool to communicate and collaborate. When we have this organisation layer - this scaffold, this foundation upon which we can operate from anywhere - we can begin to build upon that and focus on the employee experience. By getting to where we give workers what they need wherever they may be in order to thrive in challenging times; we are developing resilience in a way we never could before.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Resilience is the reason we can never go back.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Read More here:</STRONG></P> <UL> <LI><A href="https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-blog/what-s-new-in-microsoft-teams-microsoft-ignite-2021/ba-p/2118226" target="_blank" rel="noopener">What's New in Microsoft Teams | Microsoft Ignite 2021 - Microsoft Tech Community</A></LI> <LI><A href="https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-viva-blog/bg-p/MicrosoftVivaBlog" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Microsoft Viva Blog - Microsoft Tech Community</A></LI> </UL> <P><STRONG>See great sessions on Microsoft Teams and Microsoft Viva at <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">MS Ignite</A></STRONG></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>About Chris Hoard</STRONG><BR /><STRONG>Blog: <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://www.microsoft365pro.co.uk</A></STRONG><BR /><STRONG>Twitter: <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://twitter.com/microsoft365pro</A></STRONG></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> Fri, 05 Mar 2021 18:24:08 GMT https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/microsoft-ignite-live-blog-key06-the-hybrid-workplace/ba-p/2188456 Christopher Hoard 2021-03-05T18:24:08Z Microsoft Ignite Live Blog: FS192, OD380, OD378 - Latest Innovations in Teams Calling and Meetings https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/microsoft-ignite-live-blog-fs192-od380-od378-latest-innovations/ba-p/2186156 <P><STRONG>Blogger:</STRONG> Ståle Hansen, RD &amp; MVP, CEO and Principal Cloud Architect at CloudWay</P> <P><STRONG>Session codes:</STRONG> <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">FS192</A>, <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">OD380</A>, <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">OD378</A></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>As the author of the Teams calling and meetings chapter of the monthly updated book called <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Office 365 for IT Pros</A>, I was looking forward to the news on these topics at Microsoft Ignite.</P> <P><BR /><FONT size="5"><STRONG>Calling updates</STRONG></FONT><BR />I did not expect to be as surprised as I was with the announcement of <STRONG>Operator Connect</STRONG> and <STRONG>Operator Connect Conferencing</STRONG>. This is the next evolution of Direct Routing, where you can bring your own telecom operator and handle connectivity and number assignment natively in the Teams Admin Center without the technical setup. The service provides shared SLA’s to ensure a stable service. This was unexpected news since Microsoft has been focusing on Direct Routing to connect to your own telecom equipment and Calling Plans. They even announced availability of Calling Plans in 8 new markets with countries such as New Zealand, Finland, and my own home country Norway. This means that even more countries have the freedom of choice when choosing how to get telephony in Teams.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>The way I will talk about calling in Teams from now in is:</P> <UL> <LI>Use <STRONG>Calling Plans</STRONG> in countries where it is available, and you do not have need for least cost routing</LI> <LI>Use <STRONG>Operator Connect</STRONG> to bring your own operator and continue your current agreements with your favourite partner, more partners will certify in the future. The question is, can we do least cost routing in this setup? We need to investigate that when it becomes available.</LI> <LI>Use <STRONG>Direct Routing</STRONG> when you need to connect with your own PBX environment through a certified SBC to Teams and get the full flexibility for least cost routing and branch site connectivity. This is suitable for complex calling scenarios for global organizations.</LI> </UL> <P>Let us not forget about Operator Connect Conferencing, I did honestly not see this one coming. This is where you can add operator dial-in numbers to a Microsoft Audio Conferencing bridge. The advantage here is that you can add additional location not provided natively from Microsoft. I am not sure about how licensing will work in this scenario at this point in time. Read more about calling news at <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://aka.ms/OperatorConnect</A>.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>There is one more interesting calling update at Microsoft Ignite, <STRONG>SIP Gateway</STRONG>. This is a service at no extra cost where you can leverage existing SIP phone investment since you can connect Cisco IP phones, Polycom VVX phones, Yealink T20 series and the cheaper AudioCodes 400 HD series. If you already have this SIP based phones you can leverage them as desk phones or shared devices. Best of all, these will show up under Devices in the Teams Admin Center.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Picture1.png" style="width: 602px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/260998i96C1B5A856E53E35/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Picture1.png" alt="Picture1.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><FONT size="5"><STRONG>Security updates in calls and meetings</STRONG></FONT><BR />Today Teams traffic is encrypted in transit and at rest which is detailed <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">here</A>. To be able to place a call you need to go through layers of identity security and conditional access. It is a very secure service where you can be confident that your calls will not get compromised. But it does not qualify as a true <STRONG>end-to-end encryption (E2EE)</STRONG> service, since you have bot services that does transcripts and cloud recordings. Personally, I did not expect Microsoft to deliver E2EE in Teams, but they just announced this at MS Ignite. It will be available for ad-hoc 1-to-1 calls initially and will later be available as an option for scheduled calls and meetings. You should expect that recordings, AI based services such as transcript and live translation, and analytics to be unavailable for these calls. The reason for this is that the call is getting encrypted at the source and decrypted at the destination, without any ability for intermediary services to bring added functionality. Voice, video and screensharing is available in such a call. E2EE will be possible to enable for individuals or groups and they can specify which calls are E2EE. A welcome addition.</P> <P><BR />Working with larger organizations and governments I spend a lot of time talking to security about how to secure meetings. Features I typically point to are lobby, attendee role, unique conference ID for each meeting and the ability to adjust meeting options before and during the meeting. Microsoft announced two additional highly requested features, <STRONG>chat moderation controls</STRONG> and <STRONG>Invite only meetings options</STRONG>.</P> <P><BR />Chat moderation is the ability to <EM>enable</EM>, <EM>disable</EM> or <EM>only enabled during meeting</EM> configuration of the chat. In addition to this organizer should be aware that if you leave the chat open for recurring meetings, people who were invited to single occurrences of a meeting, has access to the chat after the meeting. This is something we teach users about, to go in to chat and remove those who do should not be in future version of the chat. Hopefully, this feature can create a new chat per occurrence of a meeting, but that is purely speculation and needs to be investigated when the feature becomes available.</P> <P><BR />A question I get when talking to the security department is how we can know that only invited people can join the meeting. Today, the answer is, you cannot. If you have access to the meeting link, then you can join the meeting or get to the lobby. With the Invite only meeting option, it is only the addresses of those users that were directly invited that can bypass lobby. If a user tries to join the same meeting and was not invited directly, but got a copy of the meeting link, they will get to the lobby. This is useful within organizations where we often see the lobby setting of everyone in the <EM>organization can bypass lobby.</EM></P> <P><BR /><FONT size="5"><STRONG>Meetings updates</STRONG></FONT><BR />As in IT Pro I do a lot of workshop, presentations, and technical handovers. When doing that using Teams meetings, it is important to keep the audience engaged and connected. Even though these are not IT Pro specific news, I wanted to highlight them. <STRONG>Dynamic view</STRONG> and <STRONG>standout presenter mode</STRONG> are welcome additions to the Teams meetings layout. Now you can have the video gallery on top of your Teams client, so that you can look more into the camera when looking at yourself or attendees in the meeting. The standout presenter mode puts you on top of your content, more like in a gamer stream, which makes it easier for you to connect with you audience when presenting content. Paired with Live Reactions, it can make for a very engaging session.

It will empower the IT/Helpdesk to do live support during high stakes meetings. The data you will see is jitter, latency, packet loss, and frames per second for audio, video, and screen sharing. Based on this insight it is possible to take immediate action during meetings or use it as an active troubleshooting tool.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Picture3.png" style="width: 602px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/261002i2A40E7468D81C97C/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Picture3.png" alt="Picture3.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Remote provisioning of Android devices is the ability to sign into the device directly from the Teams Admin Center without physically being at the location of the device.

Lars Johnson, Sr Director of Microsoft Teams Marketing, is our Anchor Man for next 30 minutes and leads us to new ways of virtual engagement in the age of remote work. First funny ice breaker: "It’s been a long time since we have been able to tell the difference between weekdays and weekends.“</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="FS189-1.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/260578iBB5F9EAE7ACB0A42/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="FS189-1.png" alt="FS189-1.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Joining Webinars as an attendee in many different ways with more reactions</STRONG><BR />I assume we all have faced Webinar fatigue especially since global Covid 19 pandemic started. Too many webinars were offered with too less interactions. Now you can share your reactions, it can be loving hearts, applause or constructive criticism. You can attend the event on demand or real time. You can think about joining the event from your home bike and increase your fitness.</P> <P><BR /><STRONG>Creating Events and Webinars as organizer</STRONG><BR />Setting up and running webinars will be just as easy as meetings in Microsoft Teams. Just add a custom attendee registration page to your meeting or webinar to manage attendance before and after any engagement. Following registration, attendees automatically receive an email confirmation for a simple join experience. In case you are using different providers for webinars and team meetings / conference calls: This is now a good time to consolidate and save money.</P> <P><BR />Christina Torok (Sr Product Marketing Manager at Microsoft) explains how to setup a registration page including:</P> <UL> <LI>Event details like title, date, time, abstract and Microsoft Teams Link</LI> <LI>Teams Channel</LI> <LI>Location</LI> <LI>Repeating event?</LI> <LI>Collaborative meeting note taking: yes/no</LI> <LI>Speaker information with Name and short CV</LI> <LI>Registration fields like First Name, Last Name and Email</LI> <LI>Custom questions</LI> <LI>Requires registration: None/people in your organization and guests/everyone</LI> </UL> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="FS189-2.png" style="width: 889px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/260579i66FEB031E0EE9FDC/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="FS189-2.png" alt="FS189-2.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>With Teams you can organize and conduct interactive webinars for people inside and outside of your organization with up to 1,000 attendees. You are afraid that too many attendees could disturb your webinar based on Teams Meetings? Host controls such as the ability to disable attendee chat and video. If your webinar grows to over 1,000 attendees, Teams will seamlessly scale to accommodate a 10,000-person view-only broadcast experience. Due to the pandemic Microsoft has increased this number up to 20,000 attendees for a limited time.</P> <P><BR />Now PowerPoint also wants to transform your webinars with rich presentation options: Simply launch a Teams meeting and instead of opening a PowerPoint deck and sharing your screen, just pick a file under the PowerPoint Live section of the new and improved Share content in Teams. Get full control over your content, the view you see as the presenter is yours only – review notes, engage in chats, and see your audience – all in one panel view.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="FS189-4.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/260580iBE84ED16DA302051/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="FS189-4.png" alt="FS189-4.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>PowerPoint Live in Microsoft Teams allows attendees to access the shared content through screen readers and increases inclusion significantly. Whether you are joining via a mobile phone or 8k monitor, using low bandwidth or fiber connection, each attendee experiences is optimized for their screen type.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Analyzing Webinars as Marketing expert</STRONG><BR />After the event Marketing can see on a dashboard how many people went to the registration page, have registered and attended. Total event time and average attendee time is shown as well as list of all attendees with status, duration, join-and leave time.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="FS189-3.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/260581i0372D6B8AA6F0849/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="FS189-3.png" alt="FS189-3.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Looks good so far? Maybe you are looking for deeper ways of integration into your CRM. Microsoft is offering an integration with Dynamics365.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>In this session I have learned more how Bob Bejan (Corp VP, Microsoft) is looking at the future of Hybrid Events. He is responsible for the development, production and execution of global events and experiential marketing for Microsoft. Ignite 2021 is produced completely different than all previous Ignites which happened onsite. Perspectives are so much different and ways of interactions and gathering feedback changes completely. Don’t just send a feedback poll at the end of your webinar, create a story or interesting video around it.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>We are going to see more much more immersive webinar experience types soon, so I highly recommend to also watch <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Microsoft Mesh</A> Ignite Session – powered by VR and Augmented Reality devices like Hololens or Oculus.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Read more here:</STRONG><BR /><A href="https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-blog/what-s-new-in-microsoft-teams-microsoft-ignite-2021/ba-p/2118226" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Microsoft Tech Community: Ignite Highlights for Microsoft Teams</A><BR /><A href="https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-365-blog/introducing-powerpoint-live-in-microsoft-teams/ba-p/2140980" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Introducing PowerPoint Live in Microsoft Teams</A><BR />My Microsoft 365 Modern Work <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Blog</A>, <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Podcast</A> and <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">weekly Teams News Show</A></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> Wed, 03 Mar 2021 22:33:55 GMT https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/microsoft-ignite-live-blog-fs189-easy-intuitive-webinars-with/ba-p/2182423 Ragnar_Heil 2021-03-03T22:33:55Z Ignite Live blog: MTG10 - Get the most out of meetings with Microsoft Teams https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/ignite-live-blog-mtg10-get-the-most-out-of-meetings-with/ba-p/1041813 <P><STRONG>Speakers</STRONG></P> <P>James Skay &nbsp;- Microsoft; Pauli Kongas &nbsp;- KONE</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>At this session, James Skay - Senior Product Marketing Manager in Microsoft, covered the best practices regarding the Teams meetings – different types of meetings and when to use what, as well as getting familiar with a meetings lifecycle, in order for to users to get the maximum from their meetings experience.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>The session begins with a great overview on how the meetings are driven in todays working environment in majority of the organization, and how Microsoft Teams can enable users being more effective during those meetings. Let’s start with the types of meetings which are held in companies:</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="meetings type.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159572i9D677BC8D1698FF1/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="meetings type.png" alt="meetings type.png" /></span></P> <P>Most of the meetings are <STRONG>scheduled </STRONG>and planned some time before the meetings happens. Other meetings are <STRONG>Ad Hoc</STRONG> which means that there is no prior plan, but the users choose to spontaneously meet. The third type of the meetings are <STRONG>Channel meetings</STRONG> which are also scheduled meetings, and are planned for the team members to join in a certain channel (ideally used in day to day work of a small groups). And, and the end we have <STRONG>Live Events</STRONG> which are a great way to host a webinar or have an online event with a large number of audience.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>In this session, James focuses on <STRONG>Scheduled meetings</STRONG> and dives deep into how these meetings are structured in the meaning of the three stages lifecycle:</P> <UL> <LI><STRONG>Before the meeting</STRONG> – when we are getting prepared for the meeting;</LI> <LI><STRONG>During the meeting</STRONG> – everyone has the voice to collaborate;</LI> <LI><STRONG>After the meeting</STRONG> – very important stage which many people may miss, since there is always a rush for another meeting or a project task.</LI> </UL> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="new approach.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159573i5C0980341707746E/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="new approach.png" alt="new approach.png" /></span></P> <P>But, Microsoft Teams offers really good approach enabling users to have highly effective meetings. In Teams the people can collaborate before the meeting, share the information, documents, ask questions and get very well prepared. During the meeting, users can collaborate with each other from any location and still have the quality of the meeting as they are in the same room. They can share notes, co-author documents, use Microsoft Whiteboard and access the reach content within the app. What happens after the meeting in the channel is enabling users to go through the meeting content any time, files which were shared during the meeting, meeting notes which were taken, if a meeting was recorded they can view the recording and they can also view the history of the chat which happened during the meeting. Live captions are one more feature that users can enjoy following the meeting and presentation.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>When you are sharing a presentation with your team members during the meeting, you can choose to allow users to skip ahead, or you can lock down the presentation so you can have full control what people are seeing.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Joining the Teams meeting from a mobile device is very fast and easy. When there is a meeting in a progress, you will have a Join button at the upper part of the screen. James had a great demo on how to join a meeting from the mobile app, how to share a screen or application, upload a PowerPoint presentation and add more attendees to the meeting.</P> <P>Regarding the <STRONG>channel meetings</STRONG>, you can choose to hit the meet-now button and all of the users which have alerts for the channel, will get notification that there is a meeting in progress and they can join. But, if you choose to schedule a meeting, you can do that in the channel, and choose the channel name in order for the users to have clear view and information on where the meeting is going to be held (and easier search and find the content after the meeting).</P> <P>On the second part of the session, there was also very great information covered on <STRONG>Whiteboard</STRONG>.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="microsoft whiteboard.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159574i369502444E902AA6/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="microsoft whiteboard.png" alt="microsoft whiteboard.png" /></span></P> <P>The Whiteboard enables users to transform a real picture or physical whiteboard into editable digital ink structure. They can use eraser to erase some content and collaborate like they are on a real physical whiteboard. It is digital by nature and it is saving automatically. The users can share it with just one touch and use reactions (as thumbs up – recently implemented option). Whiteboard can be launched in the meeting and users can contribute with just one touch. The great thing about the Whiteboard is that the user can choose with which people the Whiteboard is going to be shared: with the whole team, or just a couple of team members. The users can also create as many Whiteboards as they need.</P> <P>This session included a <STRONG>customer case</STRONG>, which was presented by Pauli Kongas from KONE. This organization is a global leader in elevator and escalator business, has more than 57.000 employees and communicates with more then 450.000 customers. KONE organization is actively using Microsoft Teams app as a collaboration tool in their day-to-day team collaboration and chat communication and they are especially using Teams meetings feature. During just one day in this organization, there are more then 150.000 messages exchanged within the Teams application, where people from over 60 countries are communicating in one centralized place. They have also close to 1 million meetings a year in Microsoft Teams, which I can say that it is a pretty great number. They are usually posting the meetings agenda before the meeting, as well as some document files, so the team members can get ready and contribute more during the meeting. KONE organization is also using Whiteboard, so during the workshops everyone can contribute to the meeting by drawing the ideas.</P> <P>At the end, James Skay closed this session with a great slide on 10 reasons why to host your meetings in Microsoft Teams:</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="why teams.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159575i19381F20791F5763/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="why teams.png" alt="why teams.png" /></span></P> <P>You may check the video and demo of this session <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">here</A>.</P> Mon, 02 Dec 2019 19:59:04 GMT https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/ignite-live-blog-mtg10-get-the-most-out-of-meetings-with/ba-p/1041813 Gorana Konevska Jankoska 2019-12-02T19:59:04Z Ignite Live Blog: TMS40 Managing Microsoft Teams Effectively https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/ignite-live-blog-tms40-managing-microsoft-teams-effectively/ba-p/1037258 <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Anne4.jpg" style="width: 973px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159267i553880388B6B0A2F/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Anne4.jpg" alt="Anne4.jpg" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Full Session Recording:&nbsp;<A href="#" target="_self">https://myignite.techcommunity.microsoft.com/sessions/81821</A></STRONG></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Managing Microsoft Teams Effectively is the fourth session in the <EM>Journey to Teams</EM> learning path. It was the one I’d wanted to blog about when MVP’s were presented with the opportunity to do so. Why? I strongly believe in the effective management of Microsoft Teams - but also because I knew Anne Michels was delivering the session. For anyone who has seen Anne live, they’ll know that she is one of the most passionate and engaging speakers in Microsoft - and I personally saw her knock it out the park in a Teams Architecture session back in Berlin last December during Microsoft Ignite the Tour.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Over 2000 IT pros turned up to this one. That’s around 7% of everyone who attend Microsoft Ignite.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Managing Microsoft Teams Effectively is all about what administrators need to know regarding what controls are available to customise and regulate Teams within their tenants. Effective management of Teams ensures the best experience for end users. It ensures the best experience for IT. It ensures the best experience and greatest return for the organisation.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>There are three key areas here<STRONG>: architecture</STRONG>, <STRONG>security and compliance</STRONG> and <STRONG>manageability</STRONG></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="B1.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159242i0C928E946E2F774A/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="B1.png" alt="B1.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Architecture</STRONG></P> <P>What are the building blocks of Teams? Where is data stored?</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>From an architectural perspective Teams brings together <STRONG>Office 365 services</STRONG> (I.e. SharePoint, OneDrive for Business), <STRONG>the Intelligent Communications Cloud</STRONG> which enables communications capabilities such as chat, meetings and calling and <STRONG>Teams Services</STRONG> - defined as the orchestration layer bringing all the components together. Everything is built upon <STRONG>Azure</STRONG> and the <STRONG>Teams Clients</STRONG> - the Desktop, Web and Mobile clients - sit across it all, directly interacting with other services for optimal performance and user experience.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="B2.png" style="width: 966px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159243iA856290C4B8B7913/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="B2.png" alt="B2.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>In terms of where the data within Teams is stored - this is dependent upon the entity. For example, Teams Files are stored in SharePoint whereas personal files are stored in the user’s OneDrive for Business. Similarly, whilst all chats are stored in Azure, private chats are ingested into the user’s mailbox whereas Team conversations are ingested into the shared mailbox associated with the Office 365 Group. It is critical to understand where all this data is stored in order to plan for, and execute, the correct security and compliance controls as well as the optimal lifecycle and administration policies.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="B3.png" style="width: 995px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159244i3F6338FFEADF42FE/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="B3.png" alt="B3.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Changes to Teams architecture has occurred through the introduction of <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><STRONG>Private Channels</STRONG></A> - focused spaces for collaboration within teams where only users who are owners or defined members are authorised to access. Information shared within private channels are stored differently to regular channels. Each private channel has its own SharePoint site collection which means files within it are inaccessible to unauthorised users. Since site collections are expected to rise significantly with the use of private channels Microsoft has <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><STRONG>raised the tenant limit of site collections from 500,000 to 2 Million per tenant</STRONG></A><STRONG>. </STRONG>In addition to this, chats within private channels are no longer stored within the Office 365 Group mailbox - they are within the mailboxes of the members of that private channel. The ability to create private channels can be determined either at the tenant level or at the Team level. Guests can be added if they are already within the Team. Session <STRONG><A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">THR1080</A></STRONG> is recommended for an in-depth look at private channels and information protection.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="B4.png" style="width: 956px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159245i590B4A7BEA61838D/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="B4.png" alt="B4.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Security &amp; Compliance</STRONG></P> <P>In order to manage Teams effectively, the administrator needs to know about Security and Compliance controls in order to protect data and meet compliance requirements. Teams is a <STRONG><A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Tier D</A></STRONG> compliant application, meaning industry-leading compliance commitments are enabled by default. It includes the following standards: ISO 27001, ISO 27018, SSAE16 SOC 1 and SOC 2, HIPAA, and EU Model Clauses (EUMC). Since security and compliance has always been a focus for Teams whose users expect high levels of security following other Microsoft 365 apps such as Exchange and SharePoint, there is already a wide range of controls available today and configurable through the Office 365 Security and Compliance centre. These include Data Loss Prevention (DLP), Supervision, Retention Policies and eDiscovery.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>A number of new security and compliance controls announced at Ignite include</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <UL> <LI>1 Day Retention Policies</LI> <LI>Information Barriers for SharePoint Online files in Teams</LI> <LI>Sensitivity labels for Teams</LI> <LI>Advanced Threat Protection Safe Links</LI> <LI>eDiscovery support for threaded conversations</LI> <LI>Audit log support for messaging events</LI> </UL> <P><STRONG>&nbsp;</STRONG></P> <P>These features will be rolled in over the coming months and can be tracked on both the <STRONG><A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Microsoft 365 Roadmap</A></STRONG> and the Message Centre.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="B5.png" style="width: 937px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159246i54087E6068C98E06/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="B5.png" alt="B5.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Manageability</STRONG></P> <P>In order to manage Teams effectively, the administrator needs to know what controls can help them during onboarding and the day-to-day management. This begins with understanding where these controls are. Administrators can use GUI's such as the Microsoft Teams Admin Centre, the Microsoft 365 Security and Compliance Centres and the Azure AD Admin Centre, or they can use CLI’s such as Powershell or the Graph API.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="B6.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159248i94560A08D57972AC/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="B6.png" alt="B6.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>As opposed to being reactive when Teams is in flight, effective management should begin right from the outset of the onboarding. This includes preparation of the environment (I.e. deployment, checks and the configuration of service dependencies), preparation of the network with Network Planner to support different kinds of traffic such as audio and video conferencing, and the configuration of different clients for users based upon their needs, roles and work styles. This list is not exhaustive. It can also include administrator training via <STRONG><A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://aka.ms/successwithteams</A></STRONG> which provides the team with best practices and where they become best placed to support end users. It can also include leveraging role based access control (RBAC) to assign administrators the correct Teams administrator permissions for what they need to do. Azure AD roles are especially effective for larger organisations which typically have multiple administrators managing the service or a specific workload.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="B7.png" style="width: 966px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159249i81D894F48EBCAC2D/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="B7.png" alt="B7.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Mapping and tracking all of these considerations and tasks at the onboarding stage as mentioned above may be difficult or cumbersome for some IT teams. Yet this pain can be circumvented with the new <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><STRONG>Advisor for Teams</STRONG></A>&nbsp;which is in preview today. The Advisor is set within the Teams Admin Centre and is a tool which deploys a dedicated Team offering step-by-step guidance through the process in a logical and optimal manner. This can be managed on a workload by workload basis if required. &nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="B8.png" style="width: 981px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159250i28228F6BD3E6C9BC/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="B8.png" alt="B8.png" /></span></P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="B9.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159251iF8465CD2C4F6D860/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="B9.png" alt="B9.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Administrators should also look to get familiar with <STRONG>settings </STRONG>and <STRONG>policies </STRONG>in the Teams Admin Centre as soon as is possible. Settings and Policies are both collections of configuration elements grouped by modality. The difference here is that whilst settings are typically set on a per tenant basis, policies can be set on both a tenant and user basis. The ability to set policies on groups is coming soon. Common Teams settings and policies that administrators are likely to engage with early in the onboarding will include Org Wide Settings, Messaging and App Permission Policies.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="B10.png" style="width: 960px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159252iBB753C0A9EB07BA8/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="B10.png" alt="B10.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Due to the flexibility and granularity of Teams, there are multiple settings and policies at the administrator’s disposal. A new control called <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><STRONG>Policy packages</STRONG></A> - collections of predefined policies and policy settings which can be assigned to users who have similar roles, can simplify, streamline, and help provide consistency when managing policies for groups of users across the organization. This can also make it significantly easier for IT to assign permissions when onboarding new users or when users change roles.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="B11.png" style="width: 903px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159253i3DC1C7688ED41D28/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="B11.png" alt="B11.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Moving onto the management of devices, the ability to manage them should not be a difficult experience for the administrator, nor far removed or separate from the central administration experience. <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><STRONG>The ability to manage Teams Rooms systems within the Teams Admin Centre</STRONG></A> will soon be possible, including the ability to update, restart, monitor or assign configuration profiles.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="B12.png" style="width: 986px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159254iEC1CE7CFBFB01F53/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="B12.png" alt="B12.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Finally, to cap an amazing session jam packed with new controls, effective management comes with rich reporting and analytics capabilities. Administrators need to know what is going on within their environment so they can best make decisions and give users the best experience possible. Teams has a growing number of usage reports within the Teams Admin Centre. They can also be surfaced within the Microsoft 365 Admin Centre and the Adoption Content Pack. The newest reporting available is <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><STRONG>Per Team and Cross Team Analytics</STRONG></A><STRONG>. </STRONG>Per-team analytics gives users a more granular view of usage data for a specific team. This includes temporal-based charts for active user and message counts plus deeper breakdowns of user types and activity trends. Cross-team analytics gives users a broad overview of usage data for all teams that they are a member or owner of in a single list view. This includes active user and message counts and trend lines for team activity.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="B13.png" style="width: 935px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159255i13662BF527AC408D/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="B13.png" alt="B13.png" /></span></P> <P>Overall, it's been another fantastic tour de force by Anne which has given the 2000 plus attendees a lot to think about, and a new set of controls to make the management of Teams more effective.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H3><STRONG>Session Rating </STRONG></H3> <P>5/5 - A must watch</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H3><STRONG>More About Anne</STRONG></H3> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Anne2.jpg" style="width: 483px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159256i332455B9F57D1AD3/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Anne2.jpg" alt="Anne2.jpg" /></span></STRONG></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Anne leads the Industry &amp; Firstline team for Microsoft Teams.

Many participants in the session use and administer Microsoft Teams. So they came into this session with questions and a lot of experience, as one of the participants told before the beginning of the session. He hoped that the speaker would respond to many practical challenges and give advice on how Microsoft handles the product. The expectations were therefore already clearly defined.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Main_BRK3221.jpg" style="width: 400px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/158899i93FBEFE51BB84B39/image-size/medium?v=v2&amp;px=400" role="button" title="Main_BRK3221.jpg" alt="Main_BRK3221.jpg" /></span></P> <P>Jamie Stark started with a short, but powerful agenda. He spoke about the Team Admin Center, about users, policies and settings, about the Microsoft Teams Lifecycle and of course about planned future functions and the roadmap.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Microsoft Teams Admin Center</STRONG></P> <P>The Admin Center, built with React as a single page application, supports 40 languages:</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="picture_1_BRK3221.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/158886i761047A12CD066E9/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="picture_1_BRK3221.png" alt="picture_1_BRK3221.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">Interesting is the structure of the Microsoft Teams Admin Center, which is offered worldwide in different regions including Europe and Asia. Technologies such as Azure CDN and Azure Blob Storage for the Admin Portal UI are used, as well as various backend services that bring the Admin Portal to life. This includes of course PowerShell, but also the Calling Analytics API or the Microsoft Graph.</P> <P style="text-align: justify;"><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="picture_2_BRK3221.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/158887i4B911030CDF12DCA/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="picture_2_BRK3221.png" alt="picture_2_BRK3221.png" /></span></P> <P style="text-align: justify;">This means that more and more functions can be implemented in the Microsoft Teams Admin Center. These includes, for example, the App Policies announced on Ignite 2019 to give the administrator the opportunity to decide which Apps will be made available for his company and which will not. However, the functions of the Admin Center also include Team Lifecycle Management and Org wide settings for external/guests.</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">The speaker pays special attention to the Role Based Admin Control (RBAC). Which was developed as an Azure Active Directory function across Office 365 to harmonize management and usability.</P> <P>There are four roles for this:</P> <P style="text-align: justify;"><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="picture_3_BRK3221.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/158889i453E97A8CEC5CCB7/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="picture_3_BRK3221.png" alt="picture_3_BRK3221.png" /></span></P> <P>and explanations of the different roles:</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="picture_4_BRK3221.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/158890i82B64F568972D8E7/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="picture_4_BRK3221.png" alt="picture_4_BRK3221.png" /></span></P> <P>This sheet was one of the most shot with the smartphones of the participants for later secured foil.</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">In the next part of the presentation, the speaker talked about <STRONG>policies and attitudes</STRONG> and went into more detail about user management. By addressing both creation, license assignment and login control. One focus was on Teams polices:</P> <P style="text-align: justify;"><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="picture_5_BRK3221.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/158891i59CAE58573280C5B/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="picture_5_BRK3221.png" alt="picture_5_BRK3221.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>and Meeting &amp; Calling:</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="picture_6_BRK3221.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/158892i31CF1EDEC351E133/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="picture_6_BRK3221.png" alt="picture_6_BRK3221.png" /></span></P> <P style="text-align: justify;">In this respect, unified calling and meetings with Microsoft teams are of great interest to many IT administrators. An administrator of an enterprise company told me at this point that just the calling and the implementation of meetings is now after over a year of using Microsoft Teams, a main point.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">He was therefore very pleased that the speaker spoke about the collection of guidelines on this topic and presented and also demonstrated the simplified possibilities. So the speaker explained and showed the current scope of news, meetings. Live events and calls.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">He also showed a draft version of the new meeting policies regarding the connection to the Office 365 Group.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="picture_7_BRK3221.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/158896i40081C8051277E84/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="picture_7_BRK3221.png" alt="picture_7_BRK3221.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>and presented the matching new PowerShell cmlets, which of course I don't want to withhold from you:</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="picture_8_BRK3221.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/158895i2FF5E580F33CF203/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="picture_8_BRK3221.png" alt="picture_8_BRK3221.png" /></span></P> <P>all participants often discussed topic. The speaker reported on his experiences and customer feedback on this topic. He introduced the Microsoft Teams Lifecycle Management:</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="picture_9_BRK3221.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/158893i0B1752A7491924ED/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="picture_9_BRK3221.png" alt="picture_9_BRK3221.png" /></span></P> <P style="text-align: justify;">In order to implement this effectively in his own tenant, the speaker introduced the Policies and Attitudes. With these, meaningful settings such as the creation of private channels can be controlled at team level. He demonstrated this and showed how easy and uncomplicated it is to control per Team whether private channels can be created in this Team or not.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="picture_10_BRK3221.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/158894i1C286531B7517667/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="picture_10_BRK3221.png" alt="picture_10_BRK3221.png" /></span></P> <P style="text-align: justify;">Before the roadmap James showed us the new "Advisor for Microsoft Teams". The goal of this advisor is to simplify the rollout of Microsoft Teams within the company. Using an Advisor Team with ready-made tasks in Planner, the important points from Microsoft's point of view are pointed out. The <STRONG>Advisor is currently in the private preview and will go into the public preview in H1 2020</STRONG>, so that you can all test this new tool.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Also new is the "<STRONG>Network-Planner</STRONG>" for Microsoft Teams. This should help you to plan Microsoft Teams on the level of the network and not to have to make quick adjustments to the network after the rollout. The Network Planner contains the experiences of Microsoft and its customers to make the calculation as accurate as possible:</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="picture_11_BRK3221.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/158897iF4A992D1BDA3F733/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="picture_11_BRK3221.png" alt="picture_11_BRK3221.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Finally, Jamie gave a brief overview of the roadmap for Microsoft Team management.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="picture_12_BRK3221.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/158898i0BE9B5B7D54C382F/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="picture_12_BRK3221.png" alt="picture_12_BRK3221.png" /></span></P> <P>and showed us what we can look forward to in the coming months.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>In summary, this session was extremely informative, lively and enlightening. He showed that Microsoft understands the wishes and suggestions of its customers in this area and that the innovations address them.

Viele TeilnehmerInnen in der Session nutzen und administrieren Microsoft Teams. Sie kamen also mit Fragen und vielen Erfahrungen in diese Session, so wie einer der TeilnehmerInnen mir vor Beginn der Session erzählte. Er hoffte, dass der Sprecher auf viele praktische Herausforderungen eingeht und Hinweise gibt, wie Microsoft das Produkt händelt. Die Erwartungen waren deshalb schon einmal klar definiert.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Main_BRK3221.jpg" style="width: 400px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/158899i93FBEFE51BB84B39/image-size/medium?v=v2&amp;px=400" role="button" title="Main_BRK3221.jpg" alt="Main_BRK3221.jpg" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Jamie Stark begann mit einer kurzen, aber inhaltlich gewaltigen Agenda. Er sprach über das Teams Admin Center, über User, Policies und Einstellungen, über den Microsoft Teams Lifecycle und natürlich auch über geplante zukünftige Funktionen und die Roadmap.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Microsoft Teams Admin Center</STRONG></P> <P>Das mit React als Single Page Applikation gebaute Admin Center unterstützt 40 Sprachen:</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="picture_1_BRK3221.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/158886i761047A12CD066E9/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="picture_1_BRK3221.png" alt="picture_1_BRK3221.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Interessant ist der Aufbau des Microsoft Teams Admin Center, welches weltweit in verschiedenen Regionen darunter auch Europa und Asien angeboten wird. Zum Einsatz kommen Technologien wie Azure CDN und auch Azure Blob Storage für die Admin Portal UI, sowie verschiedene Backend Services, die das Admin Protal zum Leben erwecken. Hierzu gehört natürlich PowerShell, aber auch die Calling Analytics API oder der Microsoft Graph.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="picture_2_BRK3221.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/158887i4B911030CDF12DCA/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="picture_2_BRK3221.png" alt="picture_2_BRK3221.png" /></span></P> <P style="text-align: justify;">Somit lassen sich immer mehr Funktionen im Microsoft Teams Admin Center realisieren. Dazu gehören zum Beispiel die auf der Ignite 2019 angekündigten App Policies, um dem Administrator die Gelegenheit zu geben zu entscheiden welche Apps für sein Unternehmen zur Verfügung gestellt werden und welche nicht. Zu den Funktionen des Admin Centers gehört jedoch auch das Team Lifecycle Management oder auch Org Wide Einstellungen für Externe/Gäste.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">Ein besonderes Augenmerk legt der Sprecher auf die Role Based Admin Control (RBAC). Welche als Azure Active Directory Funktion über Office 365 hinweg entwickelt wurde, um Management und Benutzerfreundlichkeit in Einklang zu bringen.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Hierzu gibt es vier Rollen:</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="picture_3_BRK3221.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/158889i453E97A8CEC5CCB7/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="picture_3_BRK3221.png" alt="picture_3_BRK3221.png" /></span></P> <P>und deren Erläuterungen, was diese delegierten Rollen im Bereich Microsoft Teams können:</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="picture_4_BRK3221.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/158890i82B64F568972D8E7/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="picture_4_BRK3221.png" alt="picture_4_BRK3221.png" /></span></P> <P>Diese Folie war eine der meist fotografierten mit den Smartphones der TeilnehmerInnen.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">In dem nächsten Abschnitt des Vortrages sprach der Sprecher über Policies und Einstellungen und ging tiefer auf das User Management ein. Indem er sowohl die Erstellung, Lizenzzuweisung und Login-Kontrolle ansprach. Ein Schwerpunkt waren neben den Policies in Teams:</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="picture_5_BRK3221.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/158891i59CAE58573280C5B/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="picture_5_BRK3221.png" alt="picture_5_BRK3221.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>auch das Calling &amp; Meetings:</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="picture_6_BRK3221.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/158892i31CF1EDEC351E133/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="picture_6_BRK3221.png" alt="picture_6_BRK3221.png" /></span></P> <P>In diesem Bezug ist für viele IT-Administratoren gerade Unified Calling und Meetings mit Microsoft Teams von hohem Interesse. Ein Administrator eines Enterprise Unternehmens sagte mir an dieser Stelle, dass gerade die Telefonie und die Umsetzung von Meetings nun nach über einem Jahr Nutzung von Microsoft Teams in seinem Unternehmen, ein Hauptpunkt ist.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Deshalb war er sehr froh, dass der Sprecher über die Sammlung von Richtlinien zu diesem Thema sprach und die vereinfachten Möglichkeiten darstelle und auch demonstrierte. So erläuterte und zeigte der Sprecher den aktuellen Umfang von Nachrichten, Meetings. Live-Events und Anrufen.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>So zeigte er auch eine Entwurfsversion der neuen Meeting Policies in Bezug auf die Verbindung zu der Office 365 Group</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="picture_7_BRK3221.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/158896i40081C8051277E84/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="picture_7_BRK3221.png" alt="picture_7_BRK3221.png" /></span></P> <P>und präsentierte die passenden neuen PowerShell cmlets, die ich euch natürlich nicht vorenthalten will:</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="picture_8_BRK3221.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/158895i2FF5E580F33CF203/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="picture_8_BRK3221.png" alt="picture_8_BRK3221.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">Das nächste Thema war <STRONG>Microsoft Teams Lifecycle Management</STRONG>. Ein äußerst interessantes und für alle TeilnehmerInnen oft diskutiertes Thema. Der Sprecher berichtete über seine Erfahrungen und das Feedback der Kunden zu diesem Thema. Er stellte dazu das Lifecycle Management vor:</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="picture_9_BRK3221.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/158893i0B1752A7491924ED/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="picture_9_BRK3221.png" alt="picture_9_BRK3221.png" /></span></P> <P>Um dies auch effektiv im eigenen Tenant umzusetzen, stellte der Sprecher die Teams Policies und Einstellungen vor. Mit diesen lässt sich auf Team Level sinnvolle Einstellungen wie die Erstellung von private Channels steuern. Dies demonstrierte er und zeigte wie einfach und unkompliziert es ist auch pro Team zu steuern, ob in diese private Kanäle erstellt werden können oder nicht.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="picture_10_BRK3221.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/158894i1C286531B7517667/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="picture_10_BRK3221.png" alt="picture_10_BRK3221.png" /></span></P> <P>Vor der Roadmap zeigte James uns noch den neuen „Advisor für Microsoft Teams“. Dieser hat das Ziel den Rollout von Microsoft Teams im Unternehmen zu vereinfachen. Mittels eines Advisor Teams mit vorgefertigten Aufgaben in Planner werden die aus Microsoft Sicht wichtigen Punkte aufgezeigt. Der Advisor ist aktuell in der private Preview und wird in H1 2020 in die Public Preview gehen, so dass ihr alle dieses neue Werkzeug austesten könnt.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Dazu kommt auch neu der „Network-Planner“ für Microsoft Teams. Dieser soll euch dabei unterstützen Microsoft Teams auch auf der Ebene des Netzwerkes planen zu können und nicht erst nach dem Rollout schnell Anpassungen am Netzwerk machen zu müssen. Der Network Planner enthält die Erfahrungen von Microsoft und seinen Kunden, um die Berechnung so genau wie möglich zu machen:</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="picture_11_BRK3221.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/158897iF4A992D1BDA3F733/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="picture_11_BRK3221.png" alt="picture_11_BRK3221.png" /></span></P> <P>Als Letztes gab James noch einen kurzen Überblick über die Roadmap für das Management von Microsoft Teams</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="picture_12_BRK3221.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/158898i0BE9B5B7D54C382F/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="picture_12_BRK3221.png" alt="picture_12_BRK3221.png" /></span></P> <P>und zeigte uns somit, auf was wir uns in den nächsten Monaten freuen können.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Zusammenfassend</STRONG> war diese Session äußerst informativ, lebendig und aufschlussreich. Er zeigte, dass Microsoft die Wünsche und Anregungen der Kunden in dieser Thematik versteht und durch die Neuerungen diese angeht. Auch nach der Session nahm der Anregungen auf und beantwortete Fragen und erklärte die Hintergründe warum und wieso bestimmte Kontrollen so funktionierten.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Herzlichen Dank Jamie für diese wunderbare Session!</STRONG></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> Wed, 27 Nov 2019 18:07:44 GMT https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/ignite-live-blog-de-brk3221-a-deep-dive-into-managing-microsoft/ba-p/1032619 Raphael Köllner 2019-11-27T18:07:44Z Ignite Live Blog - BRK2381 – DE -Information Protection, Security and Compliance in Microsoft Teams https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/ignite-live-blog-brk2381-de-information-protection-security-and/ba-p/1034868 <P>Es gab nur wenige freie Stühle in dieser Session und die drei Sprecher begannen direkt mit ihrer Session, die mit einer hervorragenden Agenda ausgestattet war, dazu aber später mehr.&nbsp;Die Sprecher wechselten sich je nach Thema immer wieder ab, so dass sehr geschickt der Wechsel der Stimmlage und des Sprachtempos die Aufmerksamkeit der TeilnehmerInnen immer wieder auf die Session lenkte. Eine sehr gute Idee um die vielen Inhalte durch diesen Kniff über 60 Minuten sehr gut zu vermitteln.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK2381_3.jpg" style="width: 400px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/158904iD38C237504B76D05/image-size/medium?v=v2&amp;px=400" role="button" title="BRK2381_3.jpg" alt="BRK2381_3.jpg" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">Aber nun zurück zu den Inhalten der Session.&nbsp;Nach einer kurzen Einleitung mit Basisinformationen zur Transformation des Arbeitsplatzes und Microsoft Teams wurde die Agenda näher vorgestellt.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK2381_4.jpg" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159054i7CE42C416FF9186D/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="BRK2381_4.jpg" alt="BRK2381_4.jpg" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Diese Session behandelte die Herausforderung von Compliance und Sicherheit im Microsoft Teams Universum. Daraus abgeleitet gibt es fünf (5) Kernthemen, die betrachtet werden müssen. Damit war auch zugleich die Agenda geboren und dargestellt:</P> <OL> <LI><STRONG>Identity &amp; Access Management</STRONG></LI> <LI><STRONG>Information Protection</STRONG></LI> <LI><STRONG>Discover and respond</STRONG></LI> <LI><STRONG>Data governance</STRONG></LI> <LI><STRONG>Manage Risk</STRONG></LI> </OL> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>1. Identity &amp; Access Management</STRONG></P> <P>Das Identity &amp; Access Management ist der erste wichtige Schritt zur Absicherung von Microsoft Teams. Im Hintergrund ist natürlich Azure AD mit Erweiterungen wie Multi-Faktor-Authentifizierung und Windows Hello für die Sicherheit des Nutzeraccounts inklusive des Zugriffs verantwortlich. Es wurde ebenfalls darauf hingewiesen MFA auch für Microsoft Teams zu nutzen, da dieses Werkzeug 99% der Angriffe auf den Account abwehren kann.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK2381_5.jpg" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159056iD521DCC69DEA635D/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="BRK2381_5.jpg" alt="BRK2381_5.jpg" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Dazu gehört auch Conditional Access (Azure AD P1), welches mit Microsoft Teams, aber auch dem SharePoint im Hintergrund eingesetzt werden kann. Die Sprecher erläuterten den Zusammenhang von Conditional Access mit Microsoft Teams und welche Möglichkeiten bestehen, um den Zugang zu begrenzen:</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK2381_6.jpg" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159057iEBDF1CB4926C6942/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="BRK2381_6.jpg" alt="BRK2381_6.jpg" /></span></P> <P>An einem Beispiel demonstrierten die SprecherInnen, wie die Policies in Zusammenhang mit Microsoft Teams, Azure AD und Conditional Access wirken:</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK2381_7.png" style="width: 400px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159058i325EBA29F42DCD79/image-size/medium?v=v2&amp;px=400" role="button" title="BRK2381_7.png" alt="BRK2381_7.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Zwei sehr gute Beispiele wurden für den Einsatz gezeigt. So der Schutz des Zuganges zu Microsoft Teams von einem nicht durch das Unternehmen verwalteten Gerätes. Der Zugang kann für den Nutzer bestehen, aber nur von verwalteten Geräten. Dies schützt nicht nur vor Datenabfluss, sondern auch vor unberechtigtem Zugriff, wenn der Account durch Dritte gehackt werden sollte.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK2381_11.png" style="width: 400px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159061iBD6DC5B9E45ECA8A/image-size/medium?v=v2&amp;px=400" role="button" title="BRK2381_11.png" alt="BRK2381_11.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Als zweites Beispiel zeigten Sie den Schutz des Zugriffes auf Microsoft Teams von einem anderen Ort als dem üblichen Arbeitsplatz. Hierbei wird versucht von einer anderen IP Adresse auf Microsoft Teams zuzugreifen und diese wird abgewiesen.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK2381_8.png" style="width: 400px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159059i7A1542AF5DEDAB50/image-size/medium?v=v2&amp;px=400" role="button" title="BRK2381_8.png" alt="BRK2381_8.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Als Nächstes sprachen die Sprecher die Team Kollaboration mit Gästen an. Ein äußerst wichtiges Thema, wie mir auch die TeilnehmerInnen in meiner Nähe in der Session bestätigten. Ein Teilnehmer erzählte mir, dass in fast 80% aller Teams in seinem Unternehmen Gäste vorhanden seien. Die Zusammenarbeit mit Gästen ist essenziell wichtig, so dass das Sprecherteam einen Usecase von BR nutzte, um die Thematik zu erläutern und dem Publikum zu erklären:</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK2381_10.png" style="width: 400px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159060iA1323E409EC7F21F/image-size/medium?v=v2&amp;px=400" role="button" title="BRK2381_10.png" alt="BRK2381_10.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK2381_12.png" style="width: 400px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159062i6A9E658968C10359/image-size/medium?v=v2&amp;px=400" role="button" title="BRK2381_12.png" alt="BRK2381_12.png" /></span></P> <P>Sie erläuterten, dass zunächst einmal der Zugang von Gästen generell eingestellt werden kann und dann auch pro einzelnem Team. Dabei erläuterten sie auch die verschiedenen Wege des Zuganges von Gästen zu Microsoft Teams und als Beispiel die Federation:</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK2381_13.png" style="width: 400px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159064iD5FBBCC8D56B0398/image-size/medium?v=v2&amp;px=400" role="button" title="BRK2381_13.png" alt="BRK2381_13.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>2. Information Protection</STRONG></P> <P>Als nächstes Thema ging es um die <STRONG>Information Protection</STRONG> in Microsoft Teams. Dabei erläuterten Sie den Zusammenhang von Microsoft Teams mit Data Loss Prevention (DLP), das zum Beispiel den Abfluss von Inhalten verhindern soll. Es nutzt Monitoring Funktionen, um dann Policies anzuwenden, um zu verhindern, dass ein Nutzer bestimmte Inhalte in Microsoft Teams postet. Der Nutzer erhält dann die Meldung, dass die Nachricht geblockt wurde:</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK2381_14.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159063i4F1E67D66310AAD5/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="BRK2381_14.png" alt="BRK2381_14.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>3. Discovery and respond</STRONG></P> <P style="text-align: justify;">Im Anschluss folgte das dritte Thema, welches aus meiner Sicht nicht weniger wichtig, aber oft vernachlässigt wird. Es handelt darum, wie effektiv man Daten im Unternehmen finden und sichern kann. Dies ist nicht nur für die IT, sondern gerade auch für die Rechtsabteilung von Bedeutung. Deshalb ist es wichtig Werkzeuge wie die eDiscovery zu kennen und einzusetzen.&nbsp;</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">Nach den Statistiken von Microsoft wurde im Markt über 3 Billionen an eDiscovery Software ausgegeben, wobei 57% der internen Rechtsabteilung&nbsp;planen diese Ausgaben noch zu erhöhen. Dazu kommt, dass 71% der Rechtsabteilungen planen IT Technologien einzusetzen, um rechtliche Abläufe im Unternehmen zu optimieren.</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">Diese Zahlen kann ich selber bestätigen, gerade der Bereich von Legaltech ist in Deutschland massiv gesteigert worden und auch diese Abteilungen eines Unternehmen stehen in der Digitalisierung nicht immer hinterher. Das Interesse der eigenen Rechtsabteilung an Werkzeugen gerade aus Microsoft 365 wächst.&nbsp;</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">Als Werkzeuge werden eDiscovery und Legal Hold in dieser Session vorgestellt. Diese dienen dazu sowohl Daten zu sammeln, als auch zu analysieren und festzuhalten, um diese später an interne oder externe Stellen (z.B. Kanzleien) weiterzuleiten.</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</P> <P style="text-align: justify;"><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK2381_15.png" style="width: 400px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159065i73AB70A4EA6A064D/image-size/medium?v=v2&amp;px=400" role="button" title="BRK2381_15.png" alt="BRK2381_15.png" /></span></P> <P style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">Als Demo zeigen sie den Einsatz von eDisvovery an einer Conversation in einem Kanal in Microsoft Teams. Es ist deutlich zu erkennen, dass der Chatverlauf inklusive aller Nachrichten und auch Gifs zu sehen ist:</P> <P style="text-align: justify;"><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK2381_16.png" style="width: 400px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159068i7CE34D3FA4733688/image-size/medium?v=v2&amp;px=400" role="button" title="BRK2381_16.png" alt="BRK2381_16.png" /></span><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK2381_17.png" style="width: 400px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159067iCAA452FCA16BD95F/image-size/medium?v=v2&amp;px=400" role="button" title="BRK2381_17.png" alt="BRK2381_17.png" /></span></P> <P style="text-align: justify;">Weiterhin ist es dann möglich diese Inhalte zu redigieren.

Data Governance</STRONG></P> <P>In diesem Teil wurde die Aufbewahrungs- und Löschregeln (Retention + deletion policy) vorgestellt und demonstriert. Somit können auch Unterhaltungen in Kanälen und auch Chats (z.B. 1 zu 1) mit diesen Regeln belegt werden.&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Ihr könnt diese Einstellungen im Security und Compliance Center von Microsoft 365 unter Aufbewahrungsregeln finden. Hier wählt ihr als Location die Unterhaltungen und Chats aus und könnt dann im Wizard die Einstellungen vornehmen.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK2381_19.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159069i88FBC708CB0843C4/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="BRK2381_19.png" alt="BRK2381_19.png" /></span></P> <P>Im Rahmen dessen erzählte mir ein Teilnehmer der Session, dass er nun auch endlich alle Nachrichten nach einem Tag löschen kann. Dies sei für deinen Usecase äußerst wichtig, wenn sie kurzfristig mit Externen sprechen würden.&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>5. Manage internal risk</STRONG></P> <P>Das letzte Thema war "Manage internal risks" und wurde ausführlicher besprochen und vorgestellt. Laut der Sprecher hatten sie viele Fragen zu dem Thema in den letzten Monaten bekommen, so dass sie gespickt mit Neuerungen das Thema etwas größer darstellen.&nbsp; Sie stellten vor, dass das interne Risiko nicht zu unterschätzen ist und diese Personen oft schwer zu finden sind.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK2381_20.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159070i1C0267F84971CB9E/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="BRK2381_20.png" alt="BRK2381_20.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">Eine Möglichkeit zur Lösung wäre es die neuen <STRONG>Information Barrier</STRONG> (IB) als Informationsbarriere und ethische Mauer zwischen Abteilungen einzurichten. So könnte man den Fluss der Informationen besser kontrollieren, eine Quarantäne für Informationen aufbauen und den Zugang zu Informationen begrenzen. Eine urprünglich für Banken entwickelte Funktion lässt sich auch entsprechend einsetzen. Sie zeigten den Aufbau und erläuterten die Struktur der Funktion:</P> <P style="text-align: justify;"><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK2381_21.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159073iC96F60F2120DEB0A/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="BRK2381_21.png" alt="BRK2381_21.png" /></span></P> <P style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">Wenn die Information Barrier einmal durch Policies im Microsoft 365 Compliance Center eingerichtet wurden, können Abteilungen und auch MitarbeiterInnen dieser nicht mehr miteinander in Microsoft Teams kommunizieren oder auch an Meetings teilnehmen.</P> <P style="text-align: justify;"><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK2381_22.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159076iECD675B145DDD06C/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="BRK2381_22.png" alt="BRK2381_22.png" /></span></P> <P style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">Hier einmal das 1 zu 1 Chat Beispiel und der UI Hinweis, dass diese Person nicht zu finden sei und man sich beim Admin erkundigen sollte.&nbsp;</P> <P style="text-align: justify;"><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK2381_23.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159075iD058F3D7935BD91C/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="BRK2381_23.png" alt="BRK2381_23.png" /></span></P> <P style="text-align: justify;">Sie zeigen auch Gruppenchats zwischen Abteilungen, wobei zwar die Abteilungen ohne Barriere miteinander chatten konnten, aber es ist nicht möglich die abgeschottete Abteilung hinzuzunehmen auch wenn die Dritte Abteilung theoretisch mit allen chatten könnte.&nbsp;</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">Gleiches gilt auch für Meetings in Microsof Teams. Ein Eintreten in das Meeting ist nicht möglich:</P> <P style="text-align: justify;"><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK2381_24.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159077iC70A27C8BC31BC7B/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="BRK2381_24.png" alt="BRK2381_24.png" /></span></P> <P style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">Für mich besonders interessant war die Frage nach Personen, die eine Abteilung wechseln und hinter die "Mauer" ziehen. Diese werden sobald diese in das Team hinter der Mauer wechseln automatisch zum Beispiel aus den Chats entfernt. Gleiches gilt dann auch für den SharePoint im Team, auch hierzu haben diese MitarbeiterInnen dann keinen Zugriff mehr.</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">Als nächstes Werkzeug wird die <STRONG>"Supervision"</STRONG> vorgestellt. Bei diesem Werkzeug wird Unternehmen die Möglichkeit gegeben in der Microsoft 365 Umgebung die Einhaltung von Compliance Regeln zu kontrollieren und durchzusetzen. Es beinhaltet ein Risikomanagement und einige Regulatorien erfordern genau diese Aufsicht, wie in den USA zum Beispiel SEC und FINRA.&nbsp;</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">Mit Supervision könnt ihr nun die Kommunikation in Microsoft Teams, Exchange und Skype for Business monitoren:</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</P> <P style="text-align: justify;"><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK2381_25.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159078i173F614ADE1816E3/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="BRK2381_25.png" alt="BRK2381_25.png" /></span></P> <P style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">und diese dann auch Verstöße hin auswerten:&nbsp;</P> <P style="text-align: justify;"><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK2381_26.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159079i65B177919F036E4E/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="BRK2381_26.png" alt="BRK2381_26.png" /></span></P> <P style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">Als nächstes Werkzeug sind die <STRONG>Audit Logs</STRONG> zu nennen. Microsoft Teams ist ein Teil der Microsoft 365 Audit Logs. So können verschiedenste Parameter, wie die Erstellung von Teams, ausgelesen werden. Als Beispiel zeigte das Sprecher Team eine Suche nach einem Mitglied, welches Mitglieder einem Team hinzugefügt hat:&nbsp;</P> <P style="text-align: justify;"><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK2381_27.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159080i23B920DBCAD8D61C/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="BRK2381_27.png" alt="BRK2381_27.png" /></span></P> <P style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">Die Audit Logs waren nicht das letzte Werkzeug zum internen Risikomanagement. Es folgten noch zwei Weitere unter der E5 Lizenzierung. Es handelt sich um <STRONG>Microsoft Cloud App Security (MCAS)</STRONG>&nbsp;und <STRONG>Advanced Thread Protection (ATP)</STRONG>.</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">Microsoft Teams steht der <STRONG>MCAS</STRONG> Überwachung offen zugänglich, so dass ihr dieses Werkzeug auch zum Risk Management nutzen könnt.&nbsp;</P> <P style="text-align: justify;"><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK2381_28.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159081iA42F8756F87BC6E0/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="BRK2381_28.png" alt="BRK2381_28.png" /></span></P> <P style="text-align: justify;">Ihr erhaltet über das Dashboard direkten Zugang zu Microsoft Teams und könnt zum Beispiel erweiterte Alarme konfigurieren. Ebenfalls können diese mit Policies unterstützt werden, so dass ihr zum Beispiel seht, wenn ein Nutzer viele Kanäle oder Teams löscht oder wenn externe Nutzer zu einem Team hinzugefügt werden.&nbsp; Letzeres zeigten die Sprecher an einem Beispiel und auch die Konsequenzen, dass dieser Nutzer zum Beispiel geblockt wird und sich nicht bei Teams anmelden kann.</P> <P style="text-align: justify;"><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK2381_29.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159082iE9F36253B67E9B01/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="BRK2381_29.png" alt="BRK2381_29.png" /></span></P> <P style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">Das letzte Werkzeug war die<STRONG> ATP für Microsoft 365</STRONG> und Teams.&nbsp;Zugleich stellten Sie die Ankündigung von der Ignite 2019 vor, dass eben Safe Links und auch Safe Attachments nun auch für Microsoft Teams kommen.&nbsp;</P> <P style="text-align: justify;"><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK2381_30.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159083iB9DC4B3F0289077A/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="BRK2381_30.png" alt="BRK2381_30.png" /></span></P> <P style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">Als Beispiel zeige ich euch hier den Screenshot für die noch kommenden Safe attachments in Microsoft Teams:</P> <P style="text-align: justify;"><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK2381_31.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/159084iAD6BD994C98855FF/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="BRK2381_31.png" alt="BRK2381_31.png" /></span></P> <P style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">Zusammenfassend war diese Session mit vielen Neuigkeiten und Erläuterung von schon bekannten sehr gut gefüllt worden. Die drei Sprecher zeigten ihre Leidenschaft für das Thema, beantworteten Fragen und zeigten erste Screenshots von Ankündigungen. Als IT Administrator und Compliance Berauftragter habe ich einen guten Überblick erhalten und freue mich darauf, die gezeigten Funktionen nun selber auszuprobieren.</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">Vielen herzlichen Dank für die tolle Session!&nbsp;</P> <P style="text-align: justify;">Hugo Ferreira, Praveen Vijayaraghavan, Christopher Bryan</P> Wed, 27 Nov 2019 18:06:32 GMT https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/ignite-live-blog-brk2381-de-information-protection-security-and/ba-p/1034868 Raphael Köllner 2019-11-27T18:06:32Z Ignite Live blog: THR1094 Learn how to use Shifts in Microsoft Teams https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/ignite-live-blog-thr1094-learn-how-to-use-shifts-in-microsoft/ba-p/1033474 <P><STRONG>Speakers: </STRONG>Keara James &nbsp;- Microsoft; Andrew Friedman&nbsp; - Microsoft</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>During this session we had an opportunity to hear more about using Shift in Microsoft Teams. This great feature incorporated within Microsoft Teams application allows first line workers (anyone doing job in shifts) staying connected, because it brings schedule management capabilities into the Teams.</P> <P>It was great to watch a demo about Shifts, since there are users which need this app and they still haven’t tried it, so the demo in this session shows how the end users can start using it from the scratch.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Shifts</STRONG> can be accessed in the Microsoft Teams app, on the left side pane, under the three dots. When you click on the Shifts icon, you will be able to see your week’s schedule with the dates and members on the team listed. You can use completely new schedule by clicking on the New schedule button or you can also import some existing schedule from Excel file.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>When you are <STRONG>creating new schedule from the scratch</STRONG>, you have a couple of options to fullfill regarding the schedule, such as: add a person, notes, dates, add additional activity. When you save the activity, it will be visible within your calendar, but it is not shared with your team. So, if you would like to share it, there is a share button where you can decide to share the new schedule with the whole team or just a couple of team members which are affected by this schedule.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="clipboard_image_1.png" style="width: 400px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/158968i475FDD9FA7D9363A/image-size/medium?v=v2&amp;px=400" role="button" title="clipboard_image_1.png" alt="clipboard_image_1.png" /></span></P> <P>Since you have shared the new schedule, the notification will be sent to the team members.</P> <P>Another great thing is that you can <STRONG>copy your schedule</STRONG>, so there is no need to re-open a new schedule every week or every month. You can just copy the schedule and assign new dates and include or exclude the additional information (as activities). You may copy the schedule on the copy button which can be found on the right upper corner of the screen.</P> <P>If you need to export the schedule(s) you can do that by clicking on the three dots for more options which can be seen on the right upper corner right next to copy button.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>According to the user preferences, the <STRONG>view of the schedule</STRONG> can be set by day, week or month. You can also view the schedule by team members or by shifts. There is also an option to switch between different teams and different shifts, so the users can always stay connected.</P> <P>In Shifts you can add <STRONG>Time Clock set up</STRONG>, so every member can manually Clock in and Clock out for the beginning and ending of the shift. Here, there is an option for exporting the clock data in Excel, so you can count the working hours.</P> <P>Printing a schedule to a <STRONG>PDF file</STRONG> helps users to have a copy of the schedule and share it.</P> <P>Many first line workers usually use mobile devices in order to access the Teams application, so Microsoft are expecting the mobile application to be used in a most case scenarios for Shifts. And the UI of the mobile app is very familiar to the users.</P> <P>In order to find a <STRONG>Shifts button</STRONG>, you will need to swipe up the app and here you can choose the app, as shown on the picture:</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="clipboard_image_2.png" style="width: 400px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/158969iB2395427FB44D53B/image-size/medium?v=v2&amp;px=400" role="button" title="clipboard_image_2.png" alt="clipboard_image_2.png" /></span></P> <P>For easier access, the IT admin can configure the icon of Shifts to be present always on the bottom.</P> <P>When you click on the Shifts you will see all the shifts that you are a part of for that day. Here you have an option to send a request for a change of the shift, see the open shifts and clock in/clock out.</P> <P>While you are on the shift you can take and sent pictures, join a video call, a meeting, and communicate with your fellow members.</P> <P>One feature that is coming soon in Shifts is <STRONG>Off-shift</STRONG> access which needs to be enabled by the administrator in your organization. This feature sends a customizable notification to first line worker which tries to access the app when he or she is out of the working hours.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="clipboard_image_3.png" style="width: 400px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/158967i74F8C666C874509C/image-size/medium?v=v2&amp;px=400" role="button" title="clipboard_image_3.png" alt="clipboard_image_3.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>And that is not all, there are also additional new features coming soon such as <STRONG>Delegate User Management, </STRONG>the option which allows the First line managers to manage user credentials via the MyStaff portal. <STRONG>SMS Sign-in</STRONG> is a great option for first line workers to sign in to Teams application using one-time SMS as an authentication method. <STRONG>Global sign out</STRONG> is very useful option since users on a shift can use one shared device. So, with this option, at the end of the shift the user can globally sign out from any application or browser session which was using during the own shift.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>This session was very useful one and I really recommend it, especially if you are considering to start using Shifts within your organization. If you would like to watch the full session including the demo, you can do that <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">here.</A></P> Tue, 26 Nov 2019 18:48:39 GMT https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/ignite-live-blog-thr1094-learn-how-to-use-shifts-in-microsoft/ba-p/1033474 Gorana Konevska Jankoska 2019-11-26T18:48:39Z Ignite Live Blog #THR2198: How to Select the Right Microsoft Teams Device Across Different Spaces https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/ignite-live-blog-thr2198-how-to-select-the-right-microsoft-teams/ba-p/1028532 <P>My Summary of Ignite Session "<A href="#" target="_self">How to select the right Microsoft Teams device across different devices?" </A></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;Microsoft Teams devices and the certification program (lead by Principal PM Lead Albert Kooiman) want to ensure that participants on the other side of the call also have an excellent meeting experience. So it`s not enough that the owner of a headset enjoys high quality audio. Behavior of certified devices should predictable, support is joined by hardware vendor and Microsoft and now portfolio is richer with new video solutions. So all benefits of Skype for Business certification still exist plus new Microsoft Teams capabilities around notification, voice skills and invocation.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="THR2198.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/158600i2EF0FAF16096F28A/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="THR2198.png" alt="THR2198.png" /></span></P> <P>Another significant benefits and values are:</P> <UL> <LI><STRONG>Easy:</STRONG> Start meetings in seconds</LI> <LI><STRONG>Inclusive:</STRONG> Everyone gets a seat at the table</LI> <LI><STRONG>Scalable:</STRONG> Configurations for any space</LI> <LI><STRONG>Ready:</STRONG> Deploy and manage at scale</LI> </UL> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Folie6.PNG" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/158601iC57D087CC058EAFF/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Folie6.PNG" alt="Folie6.PNG" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Microsoft Teams Partners like Jabra, Poly, Sennheiser and Yealink have introduced new Microsoft Teams Buttons at Ignite.

The session was mainly focused on policies and the governance in Microsoft Teams creation using School Data Sync.</SPAN></P> <H1><SPAN>The agenda:</SPAN></H1> <P><SPAN>&nbsp; </SPAN></P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="clipboard_image_0.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/157093iBEECCA15C181DD25/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="clipboard_image_0.png" alt="clipboard_image_0.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Below link shows you a presentation of a collection of links that provide greater detail to subjects discussed at Microsoft Ignite 2019 around Teams for Education.</P> <P><SPAN><A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://aka.ms/TeamsEDUIgniteResources</A></SPAN><SPAN>.</SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>If you want to join the Microsoft Teams for Education community, please use the form in the link below:</P> <P><A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://aka.ms/JoinTeamsEDUCommunity</A></P> <H1><SPAN>What is Microsoft Teams for Education?</SPAN></H1> <P><SPAN>Tosin started the session with a brief overview about what Microsoft Teams for Education is. It is the digital hub that brings conversations, content, assignments and apps together in one place. It comes with out of the box with 4 different kind of team templates:</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <UL> <LI><SPAN>Class – discussions, group projects and assignments</SPAN></LI> <LI><SPAN>Professional Learning Communities (PLC) – educator working group</SPAN></LI> <LI><SPAN>Staff – school administration and development</SPAN></LI> <LI><SPAN>Other – clubs, study groups and after school activities</SPAN></LI> </UL> <P><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="clipboard_image_1.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/157095i0383669FF32C00B6/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="clipboard_image_1.png" alt="clipboard_image_1.png" /></span></P> <P>The Class template comes by default with a Class Notebook (OneNote) and with assignments. Educators can create and assign the assignments to students. Students work on the assignments and are able to hand them in. The assignments can be graded and feedback can be given by the educator.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>The Professional Learning Communities (PLC) template is used to create a collaboration space for educators. It allows them to communicate and collaborate on subjects around the school or classes. It comes with a PLC Notebook (OneNote) by default, which is focused on team collaboration between educators.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>The Staff template is used to create a collaboration space for staff leaders and members. It comes with a predefined Staff Notebook (OneNote) to get you started quickly.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>The Other template can be used to create other kind of teams, which are not really related to education.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Tosin pointed out that Microsoft Teams has a great momentum and is the fastest growing business application in the Microsoft history. Below slide gives more insight in the usage of the application:</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="clipboard_image_2.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/157094i55DCD86AA7EF1D2B/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="clipboard_image_2.png" alt="clipboard_image_2.png" /></span></P> <H1><SPAN><BR />User policy assignment</SPAN></H1> <P>After this Nick went on about user policy assignment.&nbsp;<SPAN>He recommended that you configure the default policies as the policies you would want to be assigned to students. These are often the most restrictive settings. We do this because we want to make sure that users to get additional capabilities before the intended policy gets assigned to them with one of the policy management techniques.</SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Nick showed two announcements which will help in the user policy assignment management. The first announcement is policy packages for EDU:</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="clipboard_image_3.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/157096iB3C4675084D1782F/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="clipboard_image_3.png" alt="clipboard_image_3.png" /></span></P> <P>A Policy package is a collection of predefined and settings that can be customized and be assigned to a group of users that have similar roles within your organization. This way you can assign 5 policies in a single action. It’s adviced to review the packages and customise them to your own <A title="Manage policy packages" href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">requirements</A>.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><SPAN>The second announcement is the ability to assign policies at a large scale:</SPAN></P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="clipboard_image_4.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/157097i6877DDAE8375A85B/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="clipboard_image_4.png" alt="clipboard_image_4.png" /></span></P> <P>This will really help in big EDU environments. The assignment of the policies are executed in the service and will create a report with the results. It can both be used for user level policy assignments as of policy packages. You are also able to assign policies to a group of users. You can set the group priority, when groups have overlapping user groups. Thing to note here is that individual assigned policies will always take priority above policies set on a group. Group based policy assignments and large scale policy assignments<SPAN>&nbsp;are expected to be available in PowerShell by the end of the calendar year.</SPAN></P> <H1><SPAN>Allowing Team creation</SPAN></H1> <P>Nick asked the audience who would allow the creation of teams to everyone. He stated that it could really help in the usage of Teams to let everybody able to create a team. If educators, staff members or students can’t create a team easily, they will use other ways to collaborate (shadow IT). Good governance and policies is needed. A lot of IT organizations will likely turn off team creation. When you do this, make sure you check the user interface changes this will bring and make sure everyone understands the user experience:</P> <P><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="clipboard_image_5.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/157098i515BE0F348CD4664/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="clipboard_image_5.png" alt="clipboard_image_5.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>A naming convention could be really helpful in distinguishing your teams (faculty, region, department, etc.). You could also setup a list of blocked words, which cannot be used in team names. Next to this you could also add a link to your organization’s guidelines. This can contain some rules to create a team (when, what kind, responsibilities as an owner, etc.).</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="clipboard_image_6.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/157100i3EA57D9C439E27CF/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="clipboard_image_6.png" alt="clipboard_image_6.png" /></span><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="clipboard_image_7.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/157099i6B78372E7CB44E08/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="clipboard_image_7.png" alt="clipboard_image_7.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>A common fear heard within organizations is sprawl.

De sessie ging vooral over de policy’s en de governance in Microsoft Teams.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>De agenda:</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Picture 1.png" style="width: 939px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156829iB1142550E19B504F/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Picture 1.png" alt="Picture 1.png" /></span></P> <P>Alle resources voor het onderwijs zijn beschikbaar via de volgende link: <SPAN><A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://aka.ms/TeamsEDUIgniteResources</A></SPAN><SPAN>.</SPAN> En met deze link kun je ook deelnemen in de onderwijs community: <SPAN><A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://aka.ms/JoinTeamsEDUCommunity</A></SPAN></P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Picture 1.png" style="width: 939px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156830i3A2FD4A1820A38C8/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Picture 1.png" alt="Picture 1.png" /></span></P> <P>Wat is Microsoft Teams voor het onderwijs?</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Picture 1.png" style="width: 939px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156831iB170CC04F9DE91E6/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Picture 1.png" alt="Picture 1.png" /></span></P> <P>Microsoft Teams voor het onderwijs bestaat uit verschillende onderdelen. Je kan samenwerkingsteams maken voor de verschillende klassen. Hier wordt dan direct de desbetreffende OneNote bij gemaakt en kunnen de verschillende opdrachten voor de studenten aangemaakt worden, waarbij de student zijn opdracht doet en inlevert.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>De PCL’s zijn samenwerkingsomgevingen, waar docenten met elkaar kunnen communiceren over zaken die gebeuren in de school of klas.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Dan is er nog een mogelijkheid om standaard teams aan te maken voor de stafmedewerkers, waar zij kunnen communiceren zonder de extra onderwijs modules, die ze op dat moment niet nodig hebben.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Picture 1.png" style="width: 924px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156850iA86E8C178BA79A46/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Picture 1.png" alt="Picture 1.png" /></span></P> <P>Microsoft Teams heeft een groot momentum en is de snelst groeiende applicatie in de geschiedenis van Microsoft. Bovenstaande getallen geven een inzicht in het gebruik van de applicatie.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Wanneer je als school begint met Microsoft Teams is het belangrijk om te beginnen met de policy’s. Denk hierbij aan de policy’s die je aan studenten zou toekennen. Deze zijn vaak zo streng mogelijk. Dit doe je om ervoor te zorgen dat gebruikers extra mogelijkheden krijgen, wanneer de juiste policy aan hun wordt toegekend, met een van de policy managementtechnieken.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H1>Policy Packages voor onderwijs&nbsp;</H1> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Picture 1.png" style="width: 939px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156852iBAD44371556F01AE/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Picture 1.png" alt="Picture 1.png" /></span></P> <P>Net gereleased, de policy pakket voor onderwijs. De policy’s zijn te zien in het teams admin portaaL. Je kan via de policy package in een keer 5 policies toewijzen. Maar nog belangrijker, je kan ze ook per rol toepassen. Zo heeft een student een andere rol dan een docent of stafmedewerker. Wanneer je ze gaat toepassen kijk dan altijd naar de instellingen die je doet in de policy en klik niet zo maar wat aan.&nbsp;<A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Meer informatie over de policy package vind je hier</A>.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H1>Grote schaal toepassen van policy’s</H1> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Picture 1.png" style="width: 939px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156854i42B3F935EB391B8F/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Picture 1.png" alt="Picture 1.png" /></span></P> <P>Binnenkort het op grote schaal toepassen van policy’s:</P> <UL> <LI>Batch policy’s tot 20.000 gebruikers per batch. Hierdoor kun je in grote omgevingen veel eenvoudiger groepen een bepaalde policy geven.</LI> <LI>Draaien en creëren van een rapport.</LI> <LI>Makkelijk voor User level policy opdracht. Je kan altijd per gebruiker level een policy toekennen.</LI> <LI>Support opdrachten policy packagemaker. Eventueel kun je ook je eigen policy package gaan samenstellen.</LI> </UL> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Groep basis policy opdrachten:</P> <UL> <LI>Assign policy to group of User. Ken een policy toe aan een groep of gebruiker.</LI> <LI>Set group prioriteit om te overlappen. Zet de groep prioriteit om bepaalde policy’s te laten overlappen.</LI> <LI>Wanneer je een policy op een individu zet krijgt deze altijd prioriteit.</LI> <LI>PowerShell komt einde van het jaar uit. Daarna komt de UI pas. Alles gaat eerst vanuit Powershell werken. In de toekomst komt de mogelijkheid om dit vanuit de UI te doen oftewel de webportal.</LI> </UL> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H1>Team creatie&nbsp;</H1> <P>Wie mag er teams creëren? Dit een vraag die veel voorkomt in organisaties. Veel IT organisaties zullen in eerste instantie alles dicht willen zetten. Maar het zou beter zijn om hier een goede governance op te zeten, zodat je bepaalde teams niet kan maken. Wanneer je teams creatie uitzet, kan het bovendien overkomen of er iets niet klopt voor de gebruiker, zie onderstaande screenshot:</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Picture 11.png" style="width: 939px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156855i042ADE23D0933400/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Picture 11.png" alt="Picture 11.png" /></span></P> <P>Het is beter dat iedereen een team kan aanmaken en dat je door een policy op zet. Dit voorkomt een hoop ellende.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Picture 1.png" style="width: 939px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156856i8CA61DA8DCE223A8/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Picture 1.png" alt="Picture 1.png" /></span></P> <P>Naamgeving is een van de dingen die je via een policy kan ingeven. Geblokkeerde woorden kun je opnemen en zelf toepassen. Je kunt ook een link opnemen bij het aanmaken van een team waar de handleiding staat. Daar zet je in wat de regels zijn om een team aan te maken.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Picture 11.png" style="width: 939px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156857i254C0A9B97608285/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Picture 11.png" alt="Picture 11.png" /></span></P> <P>Veel organisaties zijn bang voor de hoeveelheid teams die gecreëerd worden, maar de realiteit is:</P> <UL> <LI>Elke organisatie kan meer dan 500.000 teams aanmaken. Je kan er zelfs inmiddels 2 miljoen aanmaken.</LI> <LI>Teams zijn verborgen voor de adreslijst, dus je ziet ze ook niet terug in Outlook.</LI> <LI>Gebruikers zien alleen teams waar ze lid van zijn.</LI> <LI>Gebruikers kunnen zelf max 250 teams maken.</LI> </UL> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Picture 12.png" style="width: 939px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156858i7EDCE7D06B1F9382/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Picture 12.png" alt="Picture 12.png" /></span></P> <P>Hoe kunnen we de ongebruikte teams opschonen?</P> <UL> <LI>Expiratie policy maken die je op groepen zet. Het advies is 180 dagen.</LI> <LI>Automatisch vernieuwen bij actieve groepen. Wanneer groepen actief zijn merken gebruikers niets van de vernieuwing.</LI> <LI>Team eigenaren krijgen een e-mail, 30 dagen voordat het team weggehaald wordt.</LI> <LI>Team eigenaren en IT kunnen teams terughalen binnen de eerste 30 dagen na het verwijderen.</LI> </UL> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Picture 1.png" style="width: 939px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156863i0E30BF20824C87FD/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Picture 1.png" alt="Picture 1.png" /></span></P> <H1>Automation of school data sync</H1> <P>De SDS automation kan automatisch teams aanmaken door een ander systeem te koppelen. Informatie uit het SIS wordt gebruikt en komt in de active directory en vervolgens in Office 365.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Picture 11.png" style="width: 939px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156865iFB7642B5493134FA/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Picture 11.png" alt="Picture 11.png" /></span><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Picture 12.png" style="width: 939px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156864iA07467F16628AB38/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Picture 12.png" alt="Picture 12.png" /></span></P> <H1>School data sync</H1> <P>Deze service is gratis voor scholen en kan uit 70+ systemen importeren. Je kan altijd SDS van Microsoft gebruiken voor de integratie. Meer informatie kan je hier vinden: &nbsp;<SPAN><A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://aka.ms/sdssupport</A></SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Het is ook belangrijk dat informatie van studenten ook naar de ouders of voogd gesynchroniseerd kunnen worden. Ze krijgen dan een korte samenvatting van wat de student heeft gedaan.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Picture 1.png" style="width: 939px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156866iAEE2D7F26C09F7A8/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Picture 1.png" alt="Picture 1.png" /></span></P> <H1>Lock/Pending Teams</H1> <P>Deze instelling komt er binnenkort aan. Wat er dan gebeurt is dat het team klaargezet kan worden en de studenten kunnen worden toegevoegd. Alleen krijgen de studenten hier nog geen bericht van.</P> <P>Als het team klaar is voor gebruik met de studenten, dan kan het team geactiveerd worden en krijgen de studenten een bericht dat ze in team kunnen gebruiken. Ook is het mogelijk om een team klaar te zetten en dat het op een bepaalde datum beschikbaar is voor studenten, bijvoorbeeld trimester 1 etc. Wanneer het team klaar is, dan kan het team gearchiveerd worden. Als een team gearchiveerd is, dan kan er nog wel in gezocht worden.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Picture 11.png" style="width: 939px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156867iCE0DFBB931256999/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Picture 11.png" alt="Picture 11.png" /></span></P> <P><SPAN>Het was een interessante sessie met een aantal nieuwe zaken die het onderwijs en de inzet van Microsoft Teams een stuk makkelijker maken.&nbsp; <A href="#" target="_self">De sessie kan je hier nog een keer&nbsp;bekijken</A></SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> Mon, 18 Nov 2019 18:55:44 GMT https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/ignite-live-blog-session-brk1065-how-to-manage-governance-and/ba-p/1005633 paul keijzers 2019-11-18T18:55:44Z Ignite Live Blog: BRK2161 Top 10 Microsoft Teams adoption best practices https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/ignite-live-blog-brk2161-top-10-microsoft-teams-adoption-best/ba-p/1013821 <P><SPAN>Teams is a chat-based workspace that brings together <STRONG>chat, meetings, calling, and Office 365, all-in-one</STRONG>.

It's easy to get lost in all the excitement. When you're considering your move to Microsoft Teams, and what it can do for your organisation, it pays to take a few moments and consider the following:</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <UL> <LI><STRONG>Consider where you are today </STRONG>- What does your organisation look like today? Are you using multiple applications for different purposes? Is the culture change-adverse? Use this time to evaluate if your organisation is ready for this chance.</LI> <LI><STRONG>Multiple phases are preferable when running a project</STRONG> - Trying to do everything in a big bang approach is hard! Think about how you'll handle training, change management, and adoption.</LI> <LI><STRONG>Collaboration may not be the business driver </STRONG>- Many organisations don't have budget allocated to collaboration. Funding for telephony and meetings may be an easier route instead, so consider leveraging this instead.</LI> </UL> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><FONT size="5"><STRONG>Understanding co-existence modes</STRONG></FONT></P> <P>Co-existence can be confusing. As of today., there's 6 different co-existence modes to consider when making the move between Skype for Business and Microsoft Teams:</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <UL> <LI>Islands Mode</LI> <LI>Skype for Business Only mode</LI> <LI>Teams Collaboration Mode</LI> <LI>Teams Collaboration with meetings Mode</LI> <LI>Meetings first Mode</LI> <LI>Teams only</LI> </UL> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Keep in mind too that you can set each of these modes on a per-user basis.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><FONT size="4"><STRONG>Islands Mode</STRONG></FONT></P> <P>Islands mode is where you are by default. If you haven't changed anything within the Office 365 portal, your users will be assigned this co-existence mode by default.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>The Good </STRONG>- You get all the functionality of both Skype and Teams</P> <P><STRONG>The Bad</STRONG> - You get all the functionality of both Skype and Teams</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>That's not a typo! Having full functionality is great, but consider how it may confuse your end users.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Recommendation:</STRONG> Only use islands if you have a plan to get to Teams only mode.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><FONT size="4"><STRONG>Skype for Business Only Mode</STRONG></FONT></P> <P>Exactly as it says on the tin. Consider the fact though that Skype for Business in Office 365 will be end of life in a few years time.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG><FONT size="4">Teams Collaboration Mode</FONT><BR /></STRONG>A fun tongue twister: This mode turns Teams into the Teams part of Teams</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>With this mode, only collaborative chats are enabled. That may seem like a simple change, but the reality is that this change will have the biggest impact to your business, and will have the largest adoption curve and cultural change. Users will have to learn to share drafts of documents and messages that both the boss and team members can see at the same time - a big cultural shift for a lot of people.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG><FONT size="4">Teams Collaboration Mode with Meetings</FONT><BR /></STRONG></P> <P>Exactly the same as above, but you enable Teams Meetings too. Note that there is still no private chat or calling in Teams in this mode - those features remain with Skype for Business.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>In this mode, you're giving users the best meeting experience through Teams, whilst still maintaining Skype for Business for all other workloads.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>If you're using this co-existence mode consider getting PSTN audio conferencing licensing, and supported meeting room hardware (either using your existing meeting room investments via a Cloud Video Interop service, or via Teams Meeting Room devices).</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><FONT size="4"><STRONG>Meeting First Mode:</STRONG></FONT></P> <P>This mode is very similar to Teams collaboration with meetings mode, but with the Teams button on the side rail hidden.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Chat and voice stays with Skype for Business server, The Outlook Skype for Business button will be replaced with the Teams button and meetings will be migrated from Skype for Business to Teams automatically via the Meetings Migration Service.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>If you're a Skype for Business environment but you're not ready for Teams, consider deploying this mode which gives you all the benefits of cloud meetings without cutting over fully to Teams.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><FONT size="4"><STRONG>Teams Only Mode</STRONG></FONT></P> <P>Finally, Teams only mode is exactly what it says on the tin. All modalities within Teams is enabled. Calling, IM, collaboration and meetings. Skype meetings still work in this mode - users will just join via the Skype for Business application which will be sitting in the users system tray.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><FONT size="5"><STRONG>A Quick note on telephony in Teams</STRONG></FONT></P> <P>Adding PSTN connectivity to Microsoft Teams is simple, and is well suited to both knowledge and mobile workers.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>To achieve this, you can either bring your existing carrier in via a Session Border Controller and Direct Routing, or you can purchase telephony directly from Microsoft.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Device-wise, there are IP phones available from various manufactures today: AudioCodes, Yealink, Crestron and Poly.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><FONT size="5"><STRONG>Goals</STRONG></FONT></P> <P>To ensure the success of your Teams rollout, it's important that clear goals are set from the outset.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Ensure that you have business aligned goals, and ensure that the project is aligned with those goals. Align the "Why are we doing this" with the business goal.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Ensure that the project gets business sponsorship from the right people too. Get the c-suite onboard early, and get them excited for the change.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Once the rollout has progressed, ensure you talk about how the rollout has affected business in a positive way. "The sales teams " is far better than "80% of users are now using Teams"</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><FONT size="5"><STRONG>Governance</STRONG></FONT></P> <P>Alright, governance isn't something to get super excited about, but it is important.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Ensure you have a written governance standard. How are you handling guest access, where is data stored, how is it stored, who has access to it? Who owns what teams? These are all great questions to ask and have a written answer for.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><FONT size="5"><STRONG>Measuring Success</STRONG></FONT></P> <P>There are many ways to measure success, but here's a few ideas:</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <UL> <LI>Use office 365 reporting</LI> <LI>Third party reporting available</LI> <LI>Tell the business the success story</LI> <LI>Look for areas to improve</LI> <LI>Gather user feedback</LI> </UL> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>And most importantly: Use this info to adapt your approach!</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><FONT size="5"><STRONG>Teams is never "done"</STRONG></FONT></P> <P>Teams is not a "one and done" project.

This was a high demanded feature which is now live in all Microsoft 365 Tenants.</P> <P>The scenarios for private channels are broad, the most common one is around closed communication within a Microsoft Team were Team members do not want to create a separate Team for that. Sometimes the desire for closed communication within a Team creates a usecase for a private channel. With this new functionality users are able to stay within one Team and have some private channels in their Team. The default setting is still standard channels.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="clipboard_image_0.png" style="width: 400px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/157324i346AAFABDDEFF761/image-size/medium?v=v2&amp;px=400" role="button" title="clipboard_image_0.png" alt="clipboard_image_0.png" /></span></P> <P>Many organizations were afraid about the Teams proliferation that happened in their tenants. With Private channels they can get less Teams and more organization within their Teams. Administrators are still in control who can create private channels – these are policy settings. Also the Team owner can control via setting if members can create private channels. Each Team can contain up to 30 private channel – in addition to the 200 standard channels. A lock icon shows the private channel.</P> <P>The purpose of a private channel is a focused private collaboration space within a Team. Private channel owners can add members and guests to a private channel. You can only add existing members of the Team to your private channel. Be aware: the current limit of persons who can be member of a private channel is 250!</P> <P>The Administration of private channels runs through the Teams Admin portal and is available through PowerShell and Microsoft Graph.</P> <P>Be aware that if a private channel becomes ownerless, another member of the private channel will be promoted to an owner of the private channel. The owner of the Team is also still in full control of the Team, that means:</P> <UL> <LI>If a member is removed from the Team, it will be removed from the private channel</LI> <LI>If the owner of the Team deletes the Team, also the private channels in the Team are deleted</LI> <LI>Sitecollection changes can be done with PowerShell</LI> </UL> <P>Apps in private channels must be installed before they can be used in a private channel. Bots and messaging extensions are currently not supported. Support for Planner, Stream and Forms will come at a later stage.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="clipboard_image_1.png" style="width: 400px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/157323iFE12CA36B75A2A86/image-size/medium?v=v2&amp;px=400" role="button" title="clipboard_image_1.png" alt="clipboard_image_1.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H2>Where are files stored in private channels? How does it work with SiteCollections?</H2> <P>Every private channel gets its own site collection. Access is only available to members of the private channel. The private site collections are hidden in the SharePoint Admin center. Please keep in mind that members of private channels will be synced between the SiteCollection and the private channel.</P> <H2>Information protection, compliance</H2> <P>eDiscovery, Retention &amp; Hold on group (team) does not automatically apply to private channels in the team, Retention applies. Content in the group mailbox – every member of the private channel gets a copy of the messages in their private mailbox – not the groups mailbox.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="clipboard_image_2.png" style="width: 400px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/157322iFE304FFFBC9FE916/image-size/medium?v=v2&amp;px=400" role="button" title="clipboard_image_2.png" alt="clipboard_image_2.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H2>Further reading</H2> <UL> <LI><A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Private channels in Microsoft Teams</A></LI> <LI><A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Theater session recording and slidedeck</A></LI> </UL> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> Fri, 15 Nov 2019 19:12:56 GMT https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/microsoft-ignite-live-blog-thr1080-overview-of-private-channels/ba-p/1010261 Martina Grom 2019-11-15T19:12:56Z Ignite Live Blog:THR2079 Demystifying Licensing Options for Microsoft Teams w Microsoft Phone System https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/ignite-live-blog-thr2079-demystifying-licensing-options-for/ba-p/1004267 <DIV id="tinyMceEditorclipboard_image_18" class="mceNonEditable lia-copypaste-placeholder">&nbsp;</DIV> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="clipboard_image_21.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156772i85880597A76EC879/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="clipboard_image_21.png" alt="clipboard_image_21.png" /></span></P> <P>As you know theater’s sessions needs to cover all the content in about 20 minutes, good time to get people attention but would it be enough to cover a topic like the one Josh Blalock selected.

Diese Funktion ist besonders wichtig, wenn durch die automatische Speicherung von Microsoft Office ein Dokument fälschlicherweise überschrieben wurde.<BR /><BR /></LI> <LI><STRONG>Teilen von Dokumenten mit externen Partnern</STRONG><BR />Das Teilen von Dokumenten ist Teil der OneDrive und SharePoint Konfiguration. Dies muss man wissen, wenn man mit Microsoft Teams arbeitet. Wenn Sie eine Dokument in einem Microsoft Teams Chat teilen, so wird das Dokument in OneDrive gespeichert und für die Chat-Teilnehmer freigegeben. Wenn dieser Chat externe Teilnehmer hat, so muss das externe Teilen von Dokumenten aktiviert sein.&nbsp;<BR /><BR /></LI> <LI><STRONG>Einheitliche Benutzererfahrung in Windows Explorer</STRONG><BR />Das Anwendungsbeispiel Windows Explorer ist der persönliche Favorit von Alistair Pugin. Die nahtlose Integration von OneDrive IntegraThe in Windows Explorer erhöht die Akzeptanz und Nutzung des OneDrive Clients und damit automatisch Modern Workplace Erfahrung und das gleichzeitige Bearbeiten von Dokumenten.<BR /><BR /></LI> </OL> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="THR1023-OneDrive-Windows-Explorer-Integration-DE.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/157134iB066A6CA3F6BCED0/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="THR1023-OneDrive-Windows-Explorer-Integration-DE.png" alt="OneDrive Integration in Windows Explorer" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">OneDrive Integration in Windows Explorer</span></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>In dieser 20-Minuten Theater-Session habe ich Neues über die Anwendungsbeispiele über OneDrive gelernt. Alistair Pugin hat eine ganz eigene unterhaltsame Art der Präsentation und hat sein Publikum mit auf eine schnelle Reise zu den wichtigsten Punkten von OneDrive und SharePoint genommen. Er weiß, wie man ein Publikum begeistert. Die fünf gezeigten Anwendungsbeispiele haben noch einmal die Wichtigkeit von OneDrive als Synchronisationslösung für Unternehmen gezeigt.

The session was very well attended even though the session took place in the afternoon hours on the last day of the Ignite conference.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="THR1023-Audience.jpg" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156419i8BB51332FE3C7A92/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="THR1023-Audience.jpg" alt="Alistair Pugin presenting the five top use cases for OneDrive and SharePoint document synchronization" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Alistair Pugin presenting the five top use cases for OneDrive and SharePoint document synchronization</span></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Alistair Pugin gave real-life examples for the five top uses cases based on his consultant experience. OneDrive is not just dumb cloud storage. It provides features for the modern workplace that are controlled by the IT department.</P> <P>The top five uses cases are:</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <OL> <LI><STRONG>Backup user profiles</STRONG><BR />The Known-Folder-Move Feature helps you to protect the user profile folder contents and simplifies, e.g., the migration to new devices. At the same time, your users can access personal folders from any device they log on to.<BR /><BR /></LI> <LI><STRONG>AutoMount document libraries</STRONG><BR />Use the AutoMount feature to preconfigure selected (mandatory) SharePoint document libraries for automatic synchronization, instead of having your users to manually synchronize libraries.<BR /><BR /></LI> <LI><STRONG>Rollback to previous versions of files</STRONG><BR />With OneDrive file versioning you can simply revert to previous versions of the same document. This is can be very important due to the auto-save functionality for synchronized Office documents.<BR /><BR /></LI> <LI><STRONG>Share content with external users</STRONG><BR />The sharing of documents is part of the SharePoint and OneDrive sharing configuration. This is very important to understand when working with Teams. When you share a document in a Microsoft Teams chat, the document is stored in OneDrive and shared to the chat participants. If your chat contains external participants, you must be able to share content externally.&nbsp;<BR /><BR /></LI> <LI><STRONG>Keep consistent user experience in Windows Explorer</STRONG><BR />Windows Explorer is Alistair's favorite use case. The OneDrive integration into Windows Explorer enhances the adoption of the OneDrive client itself and the modern workplace experience with sharing and multi-user editing of documents.<BR /><BR /></LI> </OL> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="THR1023-OneDrive-Windows-Explorer-Integration.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156421i814D1897AE9E08D7/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="THR1023-OneDrive-Windows-Explorer-Integration.png" alt="OneDrive Windows Explorer Integration" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">OneDrive Windows Explorer Integration</span></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>This 20-minute theater session introduced me to new use cases for OneDrive synchronization. The way how Alistair Pugin presented this session was very entertaining as he knows how to engage the audience. The five uses cases show the importance of OneDrive as an enterprise synchronization client.

This is welcome news as it previously felt that Surface Hub’s integration with Teams was a little disjointed, we’ll learn on how this has changed as a result of this cross-Microsoft BU partnership.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Together both Sandhya and Greg are focused on Microsoft’s overall vision for how customers unlock communications, teamwork and collaboration with their employees. Across individual and group workspaces.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="Picture 1.png" style="width: 800px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/157028i1BE2282ABA7174CE/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Picture 1.png" alt="Picture 1.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>We hear about the changes to Microsoft’s rigorous certification program (I know about this first hand!), these new changes to the program, known to partners as version 4, now include both Teams and Skype for Business. Once change of which is reflected by a Teams button on USB peripherals, this in turn provides users with easy access to quick Teams actions such as joining a meeting or even returning a missed call.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="Picture 2.png" style="width: 800px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/157029i393AF8D9435CFDFA/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Picture 2.png" alt="Picture 2.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>New speakerphone pucks are on show from Jabra, Poly, Sennheiser and Yealink – all including their respective Teams buttons. Headsets have also started going through the same treatment, with devices available for open office, on-the-go and personal desktop environments.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Next up, desk phones. These are commonly regarded as devices that are on the decline, we see evidence from analyst Synergy Reports that this is in fact untrue. This category is growing by 5% YoY with 20.5 million desk phone sales in 2018. Also, conference phones are growing by 30% YoY with 500k sold in 2018. The other interesting point being that phones rather than being swapped out every 10 years are now being refreshed every 1-3 years.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>The good news for customers moving to Teams is that their existing investment in Skype for Business phones can either be upgraded to Teams (where Android-capable) or (where Linux-based) can leverage the Microsoft Teams voice gateway until mid-2023.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>The next slide shows a new range of native Teams phones from Poly the “CCX Portfolio”, with a 400, 500 and 600, these are starting to ship in December 2019. A new option here is the ability to order the 500 or 600 without a handset, therefore saving desk real-estate for end users that prefer to go handsfree and leverage a headset or the embedded speakerphone.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Microsoft’s Teams IP Phone software offers some new features with hotdesking coming later this month, this gives users the ability to switch a phone from a common area profile to their own identity and then back to its original state once they’re finished. Also coming soon is Dynamic E911 and emergency calling via the lock screen – giving users the ability to make emergency calls without the need to unlock the device.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Call out to the Teams devices catalogue available via <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Office.com/TeamsDevices</A>. Next up we learn more about a new category of devices, collaboration bars for Microsoft Teams. A simple way for customers to add Teams Meetings to any room, easy to install on any display and manage within the Teams Admin Center. These devices are an all-in-one solution, which include the compute, mic/speaker and camera. These Android-based devices can be controlled via touch, remote, or wand control. Devices are announced from Poly (X30 and X50) and Yealink (VC210). This new set of devices will be great for exec, huddle and small room scenarios.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>We now transition over to Greg, for shared room devices. He starts off by explaining the key tenets for shared room devices and the Microsoft Teams Room platform. We’ll learn how this has evolved since last year.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="Picture 3.png" style="width: 800px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/157030iDAF6C06BF230BCDD/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Picture 3.png" alt="Picture 3.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Microsoft Teams Room has been in market for a few years now, previously known as Skype Room System V2, this platform has seen a number of iterations. Initially the compute was housed within a dock with a Microsoft Surface Pro, then additional center of table compute and audio-integrated devices came to market. More recently the compute can now be situated within the front of room screens with a separate table top controller used to drive meetings. It should also be noted that the Microsoft Teams Room devices still continue to be the only device capable of natively joining both Skype for Business and Teams meetings.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Focus here continues to be on one-click join and ease of use, rooms can be invited to the meeting or by leveraging your own identity by bringing your own device and joining via proximity.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Rooms have needed to scale, in the past this wasn’t easy to achieve, this has now changed and is a thing of the past. This is addressed via ceiling mic solutions, call out to Sennheiser’s TeamConnect Ceiling 2 and a cinematic camera solutions, the Eagle Eye Director 2 from Poly.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="Picture 4.png" style="width: 800px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/157031i2B2EA2C3A0EAA810/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Picture 4.png" alt="Picture 4.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>We also learn about new Microsoft Teams Room devices from Crestron, Logitech and Yealink all of which fall into the category whereby the compute is located at front of room.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>We can now see a full list of features including three of which are coming soon.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="Picture 5.png" style="width: 800px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/157032iEC1651603A1D5061/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Picture 5.png" alt="Picture 5.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Greg gives us a look at proximity-based meeting join and intelligent (analog) whiteboard content capture, we saw this initially at Enterprise Connect earlier this year, both of which are now GA, and are killer features that make Microsoft Teams Room an extremely attractive proposition. Digital inking is also available providing a consistent whiteboarding experience across both MTR and Surface Hub.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>We then see how FootLocker, a well-known sneaker store within the US, had branded both their front of room displays and controller. The latter being previously possible, then removed and due to be added back soon – it was good to see that this did not detract from the MTR UI.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Microsoft is also adding a set of control extensions for room control, in the past this user experience was controlled by the room control vendors. But often this led to a confusing and in-consistent experience not to mention some A/V chap had to perform all kinds of UI programming, it’s great to see Microsoft’s investment in this area!</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="Picture 6.png" style="width: 800px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/157033i1DF1300AFAF0F8DB/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Picture 6.png" alt="Picture 6.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Now on to the big MTR announcements!</STRONG></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>“Direct Guest Access for 3<SUP>rd</SUP> party meetings”, initially for WebEx and Zoom. This reminds me of when Apple announced support for iTunes on Windows, I recall their use of the term “Hell has frozen over”!</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>This WebRTC-based solution provides users with a click-to-join experience when MTR systems receive invitations for WebEx and Zoom meetings. When these meetings are invoked a Chromium application provides a native WebRTC experience for each respective UC provider. Even room controls continue to function via HID integration – this really is a tri-party partnership. We see a demo that runs flawlessly, Greg calls out that this WebEx meeting demo failed to work on the day prior, but I’m pretty sure it did work but the chap from Cisco had his audio and video turned off, woops! We expect more UC players to be added in the future.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Available beginning of 2020, web join will also be adopted on web-cable Cisco endpoints and Cisco will offer a CVI solution for older SIP and H323-based VTCs. I can’t help but feel Cisco got a better deal here, but time will tell!</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Second big announcement is Microsoft Teams Room device management, this is soon to be added to the existing device management within the Teams Admin Center. This is a big deal and is long overdue, as with the Teams IP Phones Intune is leveraged and provides customers with the ability to see usage data, trigger updates and get system health data. We see an example of how you can drill down into a single system, see devices that are connected and their health, the UI is extremely clean, and I really like the use of device product pictures.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>One function within the management portal which caught my eye was how certain cameras would include people counting, this is reflected within the room activity tab – very cool!</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="Picture 7.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/157035i8CB42E9819C4E263/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Picture 7.png" alt="Picture 7.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>For IT departments that want to outsource this capability, Microsoft will now provide a managed version of this service, whereby customers will see an operator-only view of this console. I spent some time getting a demo of this at the Microsoft booth, it was extremely impressive and is due to cost $50 per room per month. We learn that a new role-based access control is being added that allows IT admins to delegate device-only management rights to their respective IT team.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>The final announcement is an integration between MTR and Surface Hub, as mentioned previously this is a new inter-org partnership and a new feature, “Coordinated Meeting Join”, is the first fruit of this labor. This allows customers that have both MTR and Surface Hub 2S within the same room to automatically join both devices to the same meeting without any audio or video interference, so the Surface Hub can be used for what it does best, collaboration/inking and the MTR providing the audio and video experience. Proximity-based meeting join is leveraged to deliver this and even delivers in the scenario whereby a Surface Hub is wheeled into the room post meeting join – very smart!</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Thanks again to the Microsoft Teams team (notably Sandhya/Greg) for letting me cover their session, it truly is awesome to see such growth within Teams devices ecosystem.

While building and managing trust takes time, Microsoft offers a shortcut to expedite adoption of Teams apps within enterprises through the Microsoft365 Publisher Attestation and Certification programs.</P> <P>In this theater session, <STRONG>Bill Bliss, Microsoft Teams Platform Architect</STRONG>, informed about the Microsoft offering to raise visibility and trust in Apps on Teams.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="20191106_165810903_iOS.jpg" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155655i36FD115C065871AD/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="20191106_165810903_iOS.jpg" alt="Bill Bliss - THR2130 - Raising Visibility and Trust in Apps for Microsoft 365" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Bill Bliss - THR2130 - Raising Visibility and Trust in Apps for Microsoft 365</span></span></P> <P><SPAN style="font-family: inherit;">Naturally, enterprises have processes to approve new LOB apps. The platform flywheel includes the developers, who are building apps, decision makers who are enabling users with apps and end users who discover apps and start using them. As the following graphics show, there are usually many tasks involved to deploy an app or a solution to the organization´s end users, consuming a lot of time till the app can be used.</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN style="font-family: inherit;"><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="teams-apps-1.png" style="width: 800px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155656i0A86809EA3CCA173/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="teams-apps-1.png" alt="The platform flywheel" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">The platform flywheel</span></span></SPAN></P> <P>Often, large enterprises turn apps off or don´t deploy them or they have security and privacy reviews that require weeks. Such processes are often magnified by the number of apps and enterprises which is an inefficient system.</P> <P>To speed up these processes, Microsoft offers app certification to build trust and to improve transparency and between Teams app developers and Enterprises.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="teams-apps-2.png" style="width: 800px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155658iA661A13D70936C07/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="teams-apps-2.png" alt="Trust is the foundation of every relationship" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Trust is the foundation of every relationship</span></span></P> <P>Trust must be earned and is the foundation of every relationship, also in business processes and apps. So, Microsoft´s goal is to support organizations implementing trusted apps with the <STRONG>Microsoft 365 Certification Program</STRONG>.</P> <P>In the <STRONG>Microsoft 365 Publisher Attestation</STRONG>, Microsoft verifies an Office or Teams app with 90+ vectors of security and compliance, checks data handling, consistent format, and is testing the app even beyond Teams such as the compliance with the Office Apps such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and Web APIs. Also, the app is added to the Microsoft´s Cloud App Security Broker service (CASB). This automatically integrates the app in CASB for all customers! Learn more about at Microsoft Cloud App Security <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">here</A>.</P> <P>The <STRONG>Microsoft 365 certification</STRONG> is a “Pilot for Teams apps”. It includes penetration tests, how the vendor does patching and scanning for vulnerabilities, data handling, if the app works with least privilege design, compliance claim checks, if it complies with industry standards such as SOC2, PCIDSS, ISO27001 and so on.

Further helping users to rapidly transition into a new way of working, Eileen has been leading the effort of understanding Engineering personal’s healthy teamwork scenarios and evolving the pilot and practice&nbsp;across Microsoft.&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Microsoft Teams plays an important role in the Digital Transformation and the journey of transformation now brings in a lot of dynamics while the ability to cope with technological changes and disruption that come along. One of this is the new Microsoft internal program carried out by Eileen Zhou where the study is directed to see on how we can use Microsoft Team for improving Engineering’s teamwork experience while our focus is to make Microsoft Team a center platform for healthy team collaboration instead of using multiple tools whereby to achieve more with Microsoft Teams.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Hence the concept of making Teams healthy and strategically needle to compass the changes, surely setting a pace for these changes, Microsoft is using Microsoft Teams to cut through the fabric of the Engineering life circle and optimizing production in a digital workplace. What defines a Healthy Team? How do we know if our Workgroup is getting the most out of their interactions and how do we measure productivity gains? Maximizing Microsoft Teams offering to create healthiest team environments, measurements and a culture that defines productivity.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="clipboard_image_0.png" style="width: 728px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156523i4F32A9703530D345/image-dimensions/728x326?v=v2" width="728" height="326" role="button" title="clipboard_image_0.png" alt="clipboard_image_0.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <DIV>Looking back at Microsoft internal Teams-only upgrade journey last year, users <STRONG>GOT STARTED</STRONG> on Teams, and month down the line, most of users may still use Teams like Skype for business, especially the private chat, meeting and calling functions, as on the learning curve. Will this state that this all of Microsoft Teams, Hail NO. There are others teamwork hub capabilities rightly built into Microsoft team. We need to Shift and <STRONG>GET MORE ENGAGED</STRONG> by using its channels and guided conversations which eventually bring in a leap to drive the next value that is <STRONG>GETTING PRODUCTIVE</STRONG> by using Microsoft Team as a driver to teamwork transformation through the workload automation and increasing value that Microsoft will bring when comparing to investment put in.</DIV> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="clipboard_image_0.jpeg" style="width: 726px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156946iB863795370FDDF01/image-dimensions/726x391?v=v2" width="726" height="391" role="button" title="clipboard_image_0.jpeg" alt="clipboard_image_0.jpeg" /></span></P> <P>In order to be very sure and not take a decision prematurely on the outcome of the research about the slow space of users to take the opportunity that Microsoft Teams, Office 365 and others offer, we need to know the meaning of Teams in the mind of the people. Eileen’s team used the industrial standard to benchmark on what a healthy team will look like, from industrial Guidance it was right concluded that a Healthy Teamwork is central focus on the people, the people want to have the ability to have the following:</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <OL> <LI>They want to be bold and brave to talk in front of people</LI> <LI>Ability to seamless share knowledge</LI> <LI>Being more Engaged</LI> <LI>Having the ability to transparently access information</LI> <LI>Want to feel connected</LI> <LI>The incentive to share knowledge</LI> </OL> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="clipboard_image_2.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156522i0BB2D151D03411A3/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="clipboard_image_2.png" alt="clipboard_image_2.png" /></span></P> <P>Taken this further from the users perceptive, Eileen’s team took the next step to perform user experience research with Microsoft internal users and see from their view how Microsoft Teams can help them to be more productive. Looking closely at the 2 personals engaged for the research (Sales and Engineering), it was discovered that they both need more streamlined ways to collaborate with fewer tools. We can rightly see from the feedback from various teams that teams can still go a long way to steer the opportunity right embedded in the innovation integrated into the Team core features</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="clipboard_image_3.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156527i84AEF7CB2286EB4F/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="clipboard_image_3.png" alt="clipboard_image_3.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>At this point a solution will become inevitable, Microsoft internal Core Services Engineering and Operation has come up with a four-core area. Taken the Engineering personals as a sample, this four-focus investment area is:</P> <UL> <LI><STRONG><U>Set up the Hub for DevOps</U></STRONG> – Research indicated for us the increase in requesting for automation and integrations. All these requests can only be achieved if we set up a common and practical foundation, which is aligning the channels to the product lifecycle for the Engineering personals. That will encourage each role upon the DevOps workflows to connect with teammates smoothly.</LI> <LI><STRONG><U>Workflow Automation (Apps)</U></STRONG> – Instead of re-inventing the wheel, integrating Teams into the existing workflows through the Applications will create efficiencies.</LI> <LI><STRONG><U>Change Management</U></STRONG><STRONG> – </STRONG>It is essential to drive clarity and structure through change management. As Eileen shared, one of the key success factors for Microsoft internal Teams migration was having a change management strategy which fostered awareness, drove readiness, managed organizational leads’ and users’ expectation, and performed pilot before roll-out to ensure the adoption quality.</LI> <LI><STRONG><U>Product Engineering</U></STRONG> – Identify the minimum lovable product capabilities and experience blockers when engaging the product group to close</LI> </UL> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="clipboard_image_4.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156525i11EFF794FE0979E5/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="clipboard_image_4.png" alt="clipboard_image_4.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>The first investment area which is built on the DevOps process looking into using the process to develop a solution and orchestrating an environment where knowledge can be shared, and collaboration will be seamless between the channels various team members that are cross-department before any of the products is launched. To be more elaborate the persistent chat makes team members be more engaged because of the following of the conversations, files and videos are readily available making the engagement not time-bound but a continuous process. The basic thing here is that if we build a good Hubs that build the team and the channels to align with the DevOps process irrespectively of Users team, using an example of the research carried on Engineering department in Microsoft, in respectively of your group or department the process will be easier for collaboration if we can set up the Teams and channels properly with DevOps process, product or project can easily be developed. The language will be common using any project approach either Agile approach or whichever approach, the Team environment makes easy to continue to engage.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="clipboard_image_5.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156526iD07A7E6A24B50DBA/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="clipboard_image_5.png" alt="clipboard_image_5.png" /></span></P> <P>The above is an example of using Shiproom channel, where users can conduct channel meetings when reviewing product roadmap and status, load the collaborative dashboard easily from Tabs, get benefits of referring to the centralized meeting notes and conversation history.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="clipboard_image_6.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156529i807456D57F253487/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="clipboard_image_6.png" alt="clipboard_image_6.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Another Investment area which Microsoft will focus on to increase productivity is the Automatic workflow scenarios. The issue of who uses the DevOps process will not come in because apart from the developer’s other team down the ladder also want a collaboration platform for proper teamwork. Taken one scenario as the sample - the team starts a conversation to start a discussion</P> <OL> <LI>Chat – discussion starts from here and the persistence nature makes it a reference point. After the discussion what is next is to create a backlog item as turning what’s discussed to follow-up action item(s).</LI> <LI>Talk to Azure App for Teams - In order to speed up the task, Azure Boards for Teams as installed on the team initiates the wizard to guide the backlog item creation to Azure DevOps on the channel within Teams. It also lays the ground for you to refer to the linkage between the applications as described in the example.</LI> <LI>Save users’ time of switching across applications - The linkage makes the 2 applications connect with each other and it supports users to having more focus time on the backlog items and close the collaboration loop.</LI> </OL> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>There are tons of opportunities of automating/ integrating workflows using the applications for Teams. Teams for Engineering not only enhance engineering’s team collaboration capabilities but support building new capabilities for Teams within the organizations or/and for the worldwide Team user communities.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="clipboard_image_7.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156531i5020E48249BB9975/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="clipboard_image_7.png" alt="clipboard_image_7.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG><U>Change Management:</U></STRONG> become inevitable because of the need to pilot various scenarios to distinguish the specific use cases of leveraging Microsoft Teams for improving teamwork experience and productivity per roles/ personal.

Vor der Session warteten bereits einige hundert Teilnehmer auf den Einlass zum Teams-Architektur Vortrag.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="pic1.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155073iA71D2F0A0535C447/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="pic1.png" alt="Full interest in Teams architecture" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Full interest in Teams architecture</span></span></P> <P><SPAN style="font-family: inherit;">Bill Bliss ist der Plattform Architekt für Microsoft Teams und Gründungsmitglied des Microsoft Teams-Teams. Wer könnte also besseren Einblick in die Architektur von Microsoft Teams geben als Bill selbst?</SPAN></P> <P>Microsoft Teams basiert auf Azure-Diensten, Azure AD, Office 365 Groups, Microsoft Graph und bietet die gleiche Sicherheit, Compliance und Verwaltbarkeit auf Unternehmensebene wie der Rest von Office 365. Teams besteht im Wesentlichen aus den folgenden Komponenten:</P> <UL> <LI>Der <STRONG>Teams-Client</STRONG> als Frontend, als Desktop-App, Web-App und als mobile App</LI> <LI>Die <STRONG>Teams Services</STRONG>, welche die wichtigsten Backend-Services bereitstellen</LI> <LI>Die <STRONG>Intelligent Communications Cloud</STRONG>, die alle Mediendienste versorgt</LI> <LI>Die <STRONG>Office 365-Plattform und -Dienste</STRONG></LI> <LI>Natürlich laufen alle Komponenten auf <STRONG>Microsoft Azure</STRONG>.</LI> </UL> <P>"Ohne Azure könnten wir kein Microsoft Teams liefern", erwähnte Bill. Alle Komponenten erfordern die Sicherheit, Compliance und Agilität der Cloud-Plattform.</P> <P>Beginnend mit dem Team-Client gibt es viele Technologien, die in der Desktop Electron App enthalten sind. Das Fundament ist in Typescript und Node.js gebaut und verwendet Frameworks wie jQuery, Lodash und Angular. In Zukunft wird Angular in Zukunft durch React ersetzt (welches bereits heute teilweise enthalten ist). Außerdem enthält die Electron App - je nach Plattform - native Codeteile.</P> <P>Die mobilen Apps werden in den nativen Programmiersprachen der Plattform, in Swift für iPhone und iPad sowie in Java für Android entwickelt. Beide Architekturen sind auf Agilität optimiert. Die folgende Abbildung zeigt diese Technologien.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="teams-architecture-1.png" style="width: 800px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155017i4091C65F2200B30B/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="teams-architecture-1.png" alt="Teams client architecture" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Teams client architecture</span></span></P> <P><SPAN style="font-family: inherit;">Das "Middle Tier" von Teams besteht aus einer Sammlung von Mikroservices. Dies reduziert die Komplexität und ermöglicht effiziente und flexible Services, die für evolutionäre Veränderungen optimiert sind. Hinter den Front-End-Servern befinden sich eine Reihe von Diensten wie Identity, Konfiguration, Teams-Management, Compliance, Benachrichtigungen und Erweiterbarkeit. Für diese Dienste verwendet Microsoft ein ähnliches "Ringsystem" wie für die Teams Clients, um bei Bedarf neue Dienste zu entwickeln, zu testen und bereitzustellen.</SPAN></P> <P>Die Intelligent Communications Cloud bietet im Wesentlichen Messaging, Calling- und Meeting-Funktionen in vielen Varianten, je nach Aktion. Es nutzt die Dienste von Skype for Business und übernimmt die Funktionen für VoIP- und PSTN-Anrufe und Konferenzen und zeigt weiters die Präsenz an. Der "Trouter" ermöglicht Benachrichtigungen über Firewalls hinweg, um sicherzustellen, dass die Nachrichten ihr Ziel erreichen.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="teams-architecture-2.png" style="width: 502px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155061i585DD9646D9476A8/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="teams-architecture-2.png" alt="Intelligent Communications Cloud" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Intelligent Communications Cloud</span></span></P> <P>Von der Office 365-Plattform aus nutzt Teams die Funktionen anderer Office 365-Workloads, wie etwa Exchange, Office 35 Groups, SharePoint, Stream, OneDrive for Business, Information Protection und Power-BI für Daten und Analysen. (Web-)Anwendungen, die verwendet werden, sind OneNote, Power Apps, Planner, Power Point, Excel und Word. Die Vision der Teams Produktgruppe ist, ein App-Hub für Office 365 zu sein, um die besten Fähigkeiten zusammen zu bringen.</P> <P>Azure ist die Kernplattform, auf der Teams aufgebaut ist. Die Azure-Plattform ermöglicht einen umfassenden Support, einen globalen Einsatz, Redundanz und Disaster Recovery sowie Compliance out of the box. Die folgende Grafik zeigt einige Azure-Dienste, die von Teams genutzt werden. Azure kapselt die gesamte Komplexität der einzelnen Services und erledigt viel Arbeit für Teams.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="teams-architecture-3.png" style="width: 555px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155062i4119EC1DB93013EB/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="teams-architecture-3.png" alt="Teams and Azure services" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Teams and Azure services</span></span></P> <P><SPAN style="font-family: inherit;">Ruhende Daten (data at rest) können in verschiedenen Regionen liegen. Ursprünglich startete Teams mit drei Regionen: Amerika, EMEA und APAC. Seitdem haben Kanada, Großbritannien, Japan, Indien und Australien eigene Data Cener Regionen und es gibt drei weitere Regionen für die US-Regierung. Microsoft speichert Daten im Ruhezustand nur am Standort des Kunden und nimmt die Datensicherheit sehr ernst.</SPAN></P> <P>Um sich einen Eindruck von der technischen Komplexität der Teams zu verschaffen, zeigt die folgende Folie einen Überblick über die Komponenten, die zur Bereitstellung der Funktionalität erforderlich sind. Die Farben identifizieren den Typ des Services.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="clipboard_image_5.png" style="width: 800px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155057i86F07E4D59CD453E/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="clipboard_image_5.png" alt="clipboard_image_5.png" /></span></P> <P>Nachrichten werden von den Team-Clients zu den Backend-Services transportiert und an abonnierte Client-Systeme gesendet. Konnektoren und Mikroservices, in den Grafiken unten, sorgen dafür, dass Daten zu anderen Systemen fließen. Wenn ein Benutzer also beispielsweise eine Nachricht schreibt, erzeugt diese Nachricht einen Thread oder wird zu einer Reply-Chain hinzugefügt. Die Nachricht selbst wird im "Roster" gespeichert. Die Nachricht wird an die darunter liegenden Dienste weitergeleitet und andere Endpunkte werden darüber informiert, dass es etwas zu aktualisieren gibt oder einen Trigger auszulösen ist.</P> <P>Die Synchronisation von Nachrichten ist keine leichte Aufgabe. Wenn beispielsweise Benutzer A eine Nachricht sendet, muss sie über den Chatdienst mit Benutzer B synchronisiert werden. Wenn Benutzer B bereits an einem anderen Gerät angemeldet, aber inaktiv ist, muss eine „long poll“-Nachricht an diesen Client gesendet und andere Teilnehmer informiert werden. Bei iOS-Geräten wird über iOS Push eine Benachrichtigung gesendet, bei Andorid Geräten an das Google-Benachrichtigungssystem. Im Hintergrund kann der Exchange- und Information Protection Schutz gestartet werden, Suchindizes werden neu gefüllt, der Activity-Feed muss aktualisiert werden, Audit-Protokolle werden geschrieben, Aggregationsdienste werden neu gestartet und so weiter. So löst ein einfacher Nachrichten-Post Trigger für eine Reihe anderer Dienste im Backend aus.</P> <P>Die folgende Grafik zeigt, wo Daten im Ruhezustand gespeichert sind. Version 2 des Chat-Dienstes wird zukünftig Cosmos DB im Hintergrund verwenden. Bilder werden im Azure Blob-Speicher gespeichert, andere Dateien in SharePoint und OneDrive for Business, Kalendereinträge in Exchange und so weiter. Giphys etwa werden nicht gespeichert werden, sondern ihre URL. Es können auch andere Cloud-Storage-Anbieter eingesetzt werden.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="clipboard_image_6.png" style="width: 800px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155004i3F391766B9916717/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="clipboard_image_6.png" alt="Data Entity Storage" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Data Entity Storage</span></span></P> <P>Für die Telemetrie werden alle Aktionen in Teams anonymisiert aufgezeichnet. Dies ist Teil des Office 365-Versprechens. Das Gleiche gilt für detaillierte Fehlerprotokolle. Microsoft legt großen Wert auf Datenschutz und Datensicherheit.</P> <P>Hinter den Kulissen optimiert das Teams-Team verschiedene Dienste, wie z.B. die Kalender-Middleware, die Exchange Connectors für Gespräche mit verschiedenen Versionen von Exchange, das Speichern verschiedener Metadaten für Outlook und Teams, das Senden von Sprache und Medien an den Media Mixer-Dienst usw. So passieren viele Aktionen auf der Serverseite des Teams. Wenn eine Besprechung aufgezeichnet wird, führt ein "Call-Recorder-Bot" die Aufzeichnung durch und sendet die Daten an die Azure-Mediendienste, welche die Transcodierung durchführen. Danach wird eine Nachricht mit einem Link an den Benutzer gesendet, um ihn darüber zu informieren, dass die Aufzeichnung in Stream verfügbar ist.</P> <P>Echtzeitkommunikation (RTC) wird an die iCall-API gesendet und dann in verschiedenen vertikalen Kanälen verarbeitet, je nachdem, ob es sich um einen Desktop-Anruf, einen mobilen Anruf oder einen Anruf über Web-Technologie handelt. Für Desktop- und Mobilgespräche übernehmen die SlimCore-Bibliotheken die Arbeit. Für Web RTC kommt viel Javascript zum Einsatz, bevor die Gesprächsdaten an Relays, an einen Registrar, verschiedene Call Controller, Conversation und Media Controller gehen.</P> <P>Microsoft arbeitet auch an Teams für VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure). Ziel ist es, eine performante VDI-Implementierung bereitzustellen, die für mehrere Partner nahtlos funktioniert. Jedoch kann nicht alles remote erfolgen. Zum Beispiel, wenn eine Virtuelle Maschine kein Mikrofon in einem Serverraum besitzt, ist die Idee die Fähigkeiten von anderen Smart Devices so weit wie möglich zu nutzen. Die Version des VDI-Teams ist ein anderer Teams-Client (MSI-Paket) und erfordert die Ausführung einiger PowerShell-Befehle, um sie zu installieren. Auf der VDI-Seite müssen sich Partnerimplementierungen um die Anwendungssituationen kümmern, z.B. ein Benachrichtigungsfenster, das oben auf dem Team-Client angezeigt werden muss.</P> <P>Die Compliance-Boundary stellt sicher, dass Kundendaten nur im zulässigen Umfang und in der vorgegebenen Richtung verarbeitet werden. Beispielsweise können keine Daten von Außen an Teams oder E-Mails von Teams nach Außen gesendet werden.

When components are brought into Microsoft Teams, something magically happens: Users have one place for their apps, they can share information and have conversations about data, directly where they are working. So, the idea of Telstra was to enhance productivity with easy-to-use solutions for solving enterprise processes.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="telestra-0.jpg" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156382i1C0C04CFFE71B3F9/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="telestra-0.jpg" alt="Pete, Richard, Evan and Nathan" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Pete, Richard, Evan and Nathan</span></span></P> <P>Pete and Evan from Microsoft informed about the platform features and how to integrate the Power Platform in Teams. Richard and Nathan from Telstra demonstrated their Power Platform solutions and how they empower users to collaborate within their organization and with customers.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="clipboard_image_1.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156374i62B6CCC5E8C393D1/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="clipboard_image_1.png" alt="The “Big-T” organization and their showcase" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">The “Big-T” organization and their showcase</span></span></P> <P><SPAN style="font-family: inherit;">Richard gave some insights of his organization. Telstra is Australia´s number one broadband provider that is also operating in 20+ countries, offering telecommunication services. Telstra, often referred to as "Big-T", directly employs more than 29,000 people. Australia is about the size of the United States, so they have a huge geography to serve. On their path to their digitalization journey, they were rolling out Office 365 and equipped their co-workers with tablets and smartphones. By using the Microsoft Power Platform, all company members can work with easy-to-use tools to improve their day-to-day work.</SPAN></P> <P>With the Microsoft Power Platform, thousands of first-line employees get scalable digital solutions. This flattens the hierarchy through improved collaboration and engagement, delivering real financial gains and improving customer outcomes. The Telstra solutions are named Technician Plus and Team Leader Plus. These apps provide a bunch of functionalities, such as managing tickets with description, location and photos and to get detailed reports out of the data as shown in the photos below. The Teams apps can be controlled on a very granular level. Also, Teams provide the perfect platform for live meetings and recordings when meetings have been missed – one place for all essential data.</P> <P>Nathan, who calls himself a Citizen Developer, showed the Technician Plus solution. Technicians use this solution having all required data and functionality for their daily job.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="clipboard_image_2.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156373iB585616E52417215/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="clipboard_image_2.png" alt="The Technician Plus solution" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">The Technician Plus solution</span></span></P> <P><SPAN style="font-family: inherit;">Of course, it took some time and iterations to develop the final solutions. The Power Platform is ideal for such implementations to get a quick result. Personal data comes from Azure Active Directory, the rest comes from various other data sources. On the client side, integrated location services and photos help to document local issues as the following demo shows.</SPAN></P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="clipboard_image_3.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156377i4F10A788AC1EE42E/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="clipboard_image_3.png" alt="Integrated location services and photos help for documentation" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Integrated location services and photos help for documentation</span></span></P> <P><SPAN style="font-family: inherit;">For example, technicians can also hand over their tablet to customers informing about the current configuration such as the customer´s products and the device serial number and to offer additional services as the following photo shows.</SPAN></P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="clipboard_image_4.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156376i05E282C6D2EEAAF4/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="clipboard_image_4.png" alt="Customer status and offers" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Customer status and offers</span></span></P> <P><SPAN style="font-family: inherit;">The Team Leader Plus app delivers insights about the data in various forms: as PDF report, as Power BI dashboard, and it provides other apps as the following photo shows.</SPAN></P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="clipboard_image_5.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156378i8FA88098ECF79EEB/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="clipboard_image_5.png" alt="The Team Leader Plus app" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">The Team Leader Plus app</span></span></P> <P><SPAN style="font-family: inherit;">The app integration in Teams is making it easier for all users to work with these solutions without ever leaving Teams.</SPAN></P> <P>At the end, Evan showed how Power Apps and Power BI can be integrated in the Teams client: You can simply download a Power App and install the app in Teams, pin the app to the left side, and integrate Power BI by copying the URL and paste it in a Teams tab configuration. All these actions are now much easier accessible than before. As final demo, Evan presented a flow that posts a message in a Teams channel when a new member is added to the team to welcome the new user and to inform the other team members about the new employee. The last slide sums that up.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="clipboard_image_6.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156379i46F77B2F66935D05/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="clipboard_image_6.png" alt="New Teams and Power Platform features coming" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">New Teams and Power Platform features coming</span></span></P> <P><SPAN style="font-family: inherit;">The speakers delivered real world scenarios implemented with the Microsoft Power Platform integrated in Microsoft Teams to inspire Power Platform users how solutions can be developed effectively.

Er erklärte nicht nur, wie die empfohlene Netzwerkinfrastruktur aussieht, sondern demonstrierte ausführlich, warum gängige Netzwerkkonfiguration in Unternehmen für die Nutzung von Microsoft Teams problematisch sind.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>In Zeiten der Cloud-Nutzung haben sich die technischen Anforderungen für IT-Netzwerke stark verändert. Viele Unternehmen vertrauen aber auf eine veraltete Netzwerkarchitektur, die den neuen Anforderungen für die Nutzung von Cloud-Diensten keine Rechnung trägt.&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="THR3044.jpg" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156780iE47C997413CB8C48/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="THR3044.jpg" alt="THR3044" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">THR3044</span></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Johan stellte sehr deutlich klar, dass gerade die Nutzung von zentralisierten Internetzugängen für VPN-Nutzer und Niederlassungen für Performance- und Funktionseinschränkungen verantwortlich sind. Die Bereitstellung von zentralen Internetverbindungen hat direkte Auswirkungen auf die Benutzererfahrungen&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Das folgenden Diagramm zeigt die Verbindung zu einem Cloud-Dienst über eine zentrale Internetverbindung für VPN-Anwender mit Nutzung von Proxy-Server und Firewall.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="THR3044-VPN-Access-to-Microsoft-Teams.png" style="width: 886px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155831i7E8C4E2840CA8D00/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="THR3044-VPN-Access-to-Microsoft-Teams.png" alt="THR3044-VPN-Access-to-Microsoft-Teams.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Johan erklärte den Teilnehmern, dass Proxy-Server und schlecht konfigurierte Firewall-Systeme die Hauptgründe für Leistungs- und Funktionseinschränkungen bei der Nutzung von Microsoft Teams sind. Die Nutzung von solch Cloud-basierten Diensten erfordert nicht nur eine gut funktionierende DNS- und Routing-Einstellungen, sondern auch richtig konfigurierte Firewalls. Proxy-Server wiederum bieten keine relevanten Sicherheitsfunktionen für Cloud-Dienste und sich als unnötige Netzwerkkomponenten zu betrachten. Johan stellte klar, dass der Verzicht auf Proxy-Server alleine noch keine ausreichende Lösung darstellt, da oftmals eine falsch konfigurierte Firewall notwendige Verbindungen trotzdem blockiert. Der Hauptgrund hierfür ist meist, dass die Firewall nicht für alle erforderlichen Office 365 TCP- und UDP-Ports konfiguriert ist.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Das folgende Diagramm zeigt eine Firewall, die den Datenverkehr zu Office 365 blockiert.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="THR3044-Fix-Proxies-and-Firewalls-for-Microsoft-Teams.png" style="width: 886px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155832i720FFC59A9659799/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="THR3044-Fix-Proxies-and-Firewalls-for-Microsoft-Teams.png" alt="THR3044-Fix-Proxies-and-Firewalls-for-Microsoft-Teams.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H2>"The Road to Happiness"</H2> <P>Die Lösung für eine gute Netzwerkarchitektur, die eine exzellente Benutzererfahrung und Produktleistung ermöglicht, sind die folgenden fünf Punkte, die Johan als "The Road to Happiness" betitelt:</P> <OL> <LI>Proxy-Ausnahmen</LI> <LI>Korrekte Firewall-Konfiguration</LI> <LI>Split VPN-Tunnel</LI> <LI>Reduzierung der Roundtrip-Verzögerungen / Lokale Internetverbindung</LI> <LI>Konfiguration von Quality of Service (QoS) / Interner Firewalls&nbsp;</LI> </OL> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H2>Links</H2> <P>Weitere Informationen über Netzwerkanforderungen für Microsoft Teams finden Sie hier:</P> <UL> <LI><A title="Cloud Voice Guidance - Evaluate my environment" href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Cloud Voice Guidance - Evaluate my environment</A></LI> <LI><A title="Prepare your organization's network for Microsoft Teams" href="#" target="_self">Prepare your organization's network for Microsoft Teams</A></LI> <LI><A title="Office 365 URLs and IP address ranges" href="#" target="_self">Office 365 URLs and IP address ranges</A></LI> <LI><A title="Network Assessment Tool for Skype for Business and Microsoft Teams" href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Network Assessment Tool for Skype for Business and Microsoft Teams</A></LI> </UL> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Die Datails zur Theater Session, inklusive der PowerPoint Präsentation und der Aufzeichnung, finden Sie hier:</P> <UL> <LI><A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://myignite.techcommunity.microsoft.com/sessions/79459</A></LI> </UL> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H2>Über den Sprecher</H2> <P><STRONG>Johan Delimon</STRONG></P> <P>With over 20 year of experience with Microsoft Solutions, I started my own company idelimon BVBA six years ago, mainly working for large International System Integrators and Hosting Companies.

That tool was the topic of this session: “BRK2165 - Transform end user training using Microsoft Teams and Microsoft 365 Learning Pathways” presented by <LI-USER uid="27835"></LI-USER>, Director, Customer Advocacy Group, Microsoft Teams Engineering.</SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H2><SPAN data-preserver-spaces="true">What is Microsoft 365 Learning Pathways?</SPAN></H2> <P><SPAN data-preserver-spaces="true">Microsoft 365 Learning Pathways is a free, on-demand training solution built on a Modern SharePoint site template that installs within your own Office 365 environment. It is easy to customize and able to host your company content while delivering training on Microsoft 365 workloads like Microsoft Teams, Outlook, PowerPoint, and others.&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN data-preserver-spaces="true">And in this session, we learned how to increase the use of this solution by integrating it into Microsoft Teams.</SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="LP_what.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156428i99EFC45BB6CA88C3/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="LP_what.png" alt="LP_what.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><SPAN data-preserver-spaces="true">It is a great, and free, tool to use in user adoption project, and anywhere else where there is a need for up to date end-user training. This is something that Karuana has wanted to do for the last 20 years, and now they are finally doing it.&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN data-preserver-spaces="true">&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <H2><SPAN data-preserver-spaces="true">Embracing training partners</SPAN></H2> <P><SPAN data-preserver-spaces="true">Microsoft is also working together with partners that soon will be able to deliver their content on this platform. Karuana was very clear on this; they are embracing training partners to expand the offer. She also pointed out that you should respect your trainers, it’s a skill and a profession and nothing you do in your spare time.&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="LP_partners.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156429i25F3D92AD738391D/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="LP_partners.png" alt="LP_partners.png" /></span></P> <P> </P> <P><SPAN data-preserver-spaces="true">Training content is streamed on-demand from support.microsoft.com:</SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><SPAN data-preserver-spaces="true">&nbsp;<span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="LP_stream.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156430iFCCCFAA5E1B5D11E/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="LP_stream.png" alt="LP_stream.png" /></span></SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><SPAN data-preserver-spaces="true">Then a huge bug came up on stage and freaked Kaurana out a bit.

A good way is to get your private Office 365 tenant and start playing around with all the exciting stuff. And you will want to learn Teams and SharePoint together, not individually, #bettertogether is key.</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN data-preserver-spaces="true">&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <H2><SPAN data-preserver-spaces="true">How to get started with Learning Pathways</SPAN></H2> <P><SPAN data-preserver-spaces="true">Microsoft 365 Learning Pathways are provisioned by the Provisioning SharePoint services. For that you need to have an app catalog, if you don’t, it is easy to create one. Make sure you wait at least 2 hours after the app catalog is created before provisioning the Learning Pathways.&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN data-preserver-spaces="true">A piece of good advice is to install two instances, one as s staging environment and the other one for production. The actual provisioning usually takes about 15 minutes, up to one hour. It will send a confirmation email when done.&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN data-preserver-spaces="true">URL to the provisioning site:&nbsp;</SPAN><A class="_e75a791d-denali-editor-page-rtfLink" href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><SPAN data-preserver-spaces="true">https://aka.ms/M365LPprovisioning</SPAN></A></P> <P><SPAN data-preserver-spaces="true">&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <H2><SPAN data-preserver-spaces="true">What’s new</SPAN></H2> <P><SPAN data-preserver-spaces="true">Learning Pathways are just out of beta, and with this new version 3, you get a “Get started with the admin success center” that will help IT admins onboard Learning Pathways.</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN data-preserver-spaces="true">If you have provisioned a previous version of Learning Pathways, the recommendation is to wipe that installation and start fresh. If you don’t want to do that there are update instructions in the readme file found here:&nbsp;</SPAN><A class="_e75a791d-denali-editor-page-rtfLink" href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><SPAN data-preserver-spaces="true">https://github.com/pnp/custom-learning-office-365/blob/master/README.md</SPAN></A></P> <P><SPAN data-preserver-spaces="true">&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <H2><SPAN data-preserver-spaces="true">Integrate Learning Pathways into Teams</SPAN></H2> <P><SPAN data-preserver-spaces="true">There are two ways to integrate Learning Pathways into Teams; you can pin specific pages or playlists in relevant channels.

Adam wasted no time jumping right into the content and really showed me some great ideas to try in my Teams tenant.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="IMG_5031.jpg" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156469i85BBD5F755ACD151/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="IMG_5031.jpg" alt="IMG_5031.jpg" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>1. Order Teams and channels</STRONG></P> <P>Teams can clutter up very quickly, so you can hide the Teams you aren't actively working with via <STRONG>... &gt; Hide</STRONG>. This organizes your Teams list into Your Teams and Hidden Teams. Bonus tip you can drag and drop Teams to order them how you like, which only affects your view of Teams</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="1.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156459iF70CFFD0B49F2834/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="1.png" alt="1.png" /></span></STRONG></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>2. Filters</STRONG></P> <P>A new feature that you can access by clicking the filter icon on the top right and then type the Team, Channel, Person, etc. you want to filter on. This feature is similar to search but unlike searching it shows you the navigation path to the item as well.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="2.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156456i6425CE9C302A8BFD/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="2.png" alt="2.png" /></span></STRONG></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>3. Cross channel posting</STRONG></P> <P>To post to multiple channels all you have to do is click the formatting icon on your message and then click <STRONG>Select Channels</STRONG> and add as many as you'd like. All of the channels will get your post!</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="3.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156457i8ADE5A1BA2611388/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="3.png" alt="3.png" /></span></STRONG></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>4. Announcements</STRONG></P> <P>Another related feature is the ability to make an official announcement. To do this you click <STRONG>New Conversation &gt; Announcement</STRONG>. Announcements include a nice stylized headline with a background color or image. The announcement gets sent to the channels and Teams even puts a little megaphone icon on it.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="4.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156458iB77E2B62945E5D49/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="4.png" alt="4.png" /></span></STRONG></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>5. Channel moderation</STRONG></P> <P>Restrict who can post in a channel (perhaps a good feature for announcement channels). Simply click <STRONG>... &gt; Manage Channel</STRONG> which gives you some basic options for who can start a new post but also allows you to turn Channel moderation on and off. With channel moderation on, you can assign moderators and control who can reply and submit in the channel.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="5.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156460iC01D6063701E4E1B/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="5.png" alt="5.png" /></span></STRONG></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>6. Channel notifications</STRONG></P> <P>It’s easy to get lost in all the things happening at once in Teams. Channel notifications allow you to control the noise. Access the setting from <STRONG>... &gt; Channel Notifications</STRONG>. From there you can decide whether to see All new posts, replies, or mentions and control how the notifications appear.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="6.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156461iB5A88B878C366B97/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="6.png" alt="6.png" /></span></STRONG></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>7. Emojis in channel names</STRONG></P> <P>Chalk this one up to something I had no idea you could do throughout Windows 10.

The master team uses channels and associated tabs as convenient directory listings of other teams used for Departments, Projects, or other larger Organizational team collaboration initiatives.&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Steven highlighted 3 methods that can be used to format the directory listing of teams available in the organization. In addition to richly formatted information about the team, the listing can also include a 'link' in the master team directory so that end-users can navigate to the team they need with one click.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>1) Leverage the "Wiki" tab</P> <UL> <LI>The Wiki can be used to format a directory listing of teams with rich meta data (such as purpose, background, etc..), and links to those teams.</LI> </UL> <P>2) Use a SharePoint List</P> <UL> <LI>A SharePoint list can be highly customized and added as a tab</LI> <LI>It can be used to trigger flows or embed PowerApps for more functionality or automation such as implementing an approval workflow for teams creation</LI> </UL> <P>3) Use a Custom Tab</P> <UL> <LI>Similar to the first two options, a custom tab can host a web site or web app that is formatted in way that best meets describes the teams in the organization, and can be used for integration into other applications</LI> </UL> <P>The screenshot shows an example of a logical organizational teams structure for a fictious Shopping Mall operation. There is a root 'Master' team named "Starcourt Mall" that acts as a richly formatted directory with links to other subordinate teams by using channels and formatted tabs.&nbsp; In this example, the right hand pane is using SharePoint List to provide the customized directory listing.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Blog Entry Teams Pic.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156204iC9C4D725DAD89A1D/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Blog Entry Teams Pic.png" alt="Blog Entry Teams Pic.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>A side benefit to making teams and the associated information more easy to find is that it creates an environment where people feel they don't have to create even more teams.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H2>Use Policies to Automatically Govern the Herd</H2> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>The second pillar Steven highlighted to meet the challenge of team sprawl is to use several Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) features and policies and to automatically govern some aspects of the creation and life-cycle of teams. Four capabilities were highlighted:</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>1)&nbsp; Using an Azure AD Security Group to limit Who can Create a team</STRONG></P> <P>Organizations can natively enabled or disable self-service team creation which either allows all end-users to create a team, or no end-users to create a team. One feature of the Azure AD P1 license (which comes with EMS license) is the ability to restrict the ability to create team to the membership of a an Azure AD security group.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>The membership could be a group of people such as a senior support personnel, department or project leaders, or members of the IT staff.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>2) Azure AD Office 365 Expiration Policies</STRONG></P> <P>Azure AD group expiration policies are an effective method to clean up teams that are not being used. Administrators create and apply an expiration policy to Office 365 groups associated with teams. A policy expiration period is set, and at the end of that period, group owners are sent an email to renew the Office 365 group.&nbsp; If they do not, the group and associated team and resources will be deleted. The group and team can be recovered up to the first 30 days.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>A recent improvement to this policy is that any groups that are being actively used are automatically renewed. Activity is defined by specific actions in the applications that use the associated group.&nbsp; See <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Office 365 Group Expiration Policy</A> for more information.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>3)&nbsp; Azure AD Naming Policies</STRONG></P> <P>When a Teams deployment has a large number of teams, a good naming policy can make finding individual teams easier, and can also prevent team names that violate corporate standards. Naming policies are an Azure AD P1 license feature which allow Administrators to enforce a naming policy on Office 365 groups that can either add a Prefix or Suffix based on the value of an AD attribute to the group name, or block certain key words (for example, “CEO, Payroll, HR”).</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>The policy is applied to the Office 365 group associated with the team and enforces the same rules on the team name in the Teams client.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Steven highlighted a common scenario which is prefixing the group name with the department from the person who created the team.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>See <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Enforce a naming policy on Office 365 groups in Azure Active Directory</A> for more information on Azure AD naming policies.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>4) &nbsp;Classification</STRONG></P> <P>Classification labels can be created and applied to individual teams. The classification labels are created with the Azure AD PowerShell module, and then assigned to individual teams by team owners. The classification information then appear as extra information for that team in the Teams client, and can help end-users and administrators understand why a team exists, and what it should be used for.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H2>Summary</H2> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>This was a valuable 20 minute session Steven delivered. With the rapid growth of Teams usage, it is more important then ever to put some order and guard rails before too many teams becomes a real usability issue for organizations.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>More helpful articles can be found on Steven's blog at <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://regarding365.com/@smcollier</A>.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> Tue, 12 Nov 2019 03:19:45 GMT https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/ignite-live-blog-thr2063-maintain-order-while-enabling-self/ba-p/1000274 Curtis Johnstone 2019-11-12T03:19:45Z Ignite Live Blog: THR3044 - Top 5 things you need to know to optimize your network for MS Teams https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/ignite-live-blog-thr3044-top-5-things-you-need-to-know-to/ba-p/991972 <P>In this theater session, Johan Delimon showed us the importance of a properly configured network infrastructure when using Microsoft Teams. Besides only explaining the recommended network configuration he demonstrated why some common network configurations in enterprise networks are problematic.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>In the cloud era, the technical requirements for functional network infrastructures have changed dramatically. Many enterprises still rely on classic network infrastructure designs that do not adopt best practices for modern cloud service usage.&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="THR3044.jpg" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/156780iE47C997413CB8C48/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="THR3044.jpg" alt="THR3044" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">THR3044</span></span></P> <P><EM><FONT size="2">Johan Delimon talking about&nbsp;Top 5 things you need to know to optimize your network for Microsoft Teams</FONT></EM></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Johan pointed out that especially the approach for centralized internet connectivity for VPN-users and branch offices faces performance and functionality issues. A headquarter based internet breakout affects the end-user experience directly.</P> <P>The following diagram illustrates the connectivity for a VPN-user to the cloud service via a central proxy and firewall configuration.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="THR3044-VPN-Access-to-Microsoft-Teams.png" style="width: 886px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155831i7E8C4E2840CA8D00/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="THR3044-VPN-Access-to-Microsoft-Teams.png" alt="THR3044-VPN-Access-to-Microsoft-Teams.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Johan explained to the attendees that proxy servers and badly configured firewalls are the reasons for performance and connectivity issues. The use of cloud-based services requires not only a good working name resolution and network routing, but also correct configured firewalls. In a cloud era, a proxy is an unnecessary network component without providing any real value to network security.</P> <P>But even when you remove the proxy server from the infrastructure, Johan mentioned, the firewall might still block access to cloud services. The main reason for this is that the firewall is not configured to allow traffic to Office 365 for all required TCP and UDP ports.</P> <P>The following diagram shows a firewall blocking connectivity to Office 365.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="THR3044-Fix-Proxies-and-Firewalls-for-Microsoft-Teams.png" style="width: 886px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155832i720FFC59A9659799/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="THR3044-Fix-Proxies-and-Firewalls-for-Microsoft-Teams.png" alt="THR3044-Fix-Proxies-and-Firewalls-for-Microsoft-Teams.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H2>The Road to Happiness</H2> <P>The solution for a proper network infrastructure configuration for excellent end-user experience and performance are the following five major topics, referred to as <STRONG>"The Road to Happiness"</STRONG> by Johan:</P> <OL> <LI>Proxy Exceptions</LI> <LI>Proper Firewall Configuration</LI> <LI>Split VPN Tunnels</LI> <LI>Roundtrip Delay / Local Internet</LI> <LI>Quality of Service (QoS) / Internal Firewalls&nbsp;</LI> </OL> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H2>Links</H2> <P>Find more information about networks for Microsoft Teams here:</P> <UL> <LI><A title="Cloud Voice Guidance - Evaluate my environment" href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Cloud Voice Guidance - Evaluate my environment</A></LI> <LI><A title="Prepare your organization's network for Microsoft Teams" href="#" target="_self">Prepare your organization's network for Microsoft Teams</A></LI> <LI><A title="Office 365 URLs and IP address ranges" href="#" target="_self">Office 365 URLs and IP address ranges</A></LI> <LI><A title="Network Assessment Tool for Skype for Business and Microsoft Teams" href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Network Assessment Tool for Skype for Business and Microsoft Teams</A></LI> </UL> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Find the detailed session information here:</P> <UL> <LI><A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://myignite.techcommunity.microsoft.com/sessions/79459</A></LI> </UL> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H2>About the Speaker</H2> <P>Johan Delimon</P> <P>With over 20 year of experience with Microsoft Solutions, I started my own company idelimon BVBA six years ago, mainly working for large International System Integrators and Hosting Companies.

They combined a good introduction on this platform story with the the admin tools involved, and talked about a great set of features coming.</P> <P>If you'd rather watch the recording, you can find it on <A href="#" target="_self">the Microsoft Ignite website</A>.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H2>Teams as a platform</H2> <P>You can extend Teams in a couple of different ways to improve the productivity of your team. There are 4 main pillars to Teams as a platform:</P> <UL> <LI><STRONG>Ready made solutions</STRONG> &gt; use the Teams store to download and integrate hundreds of applications from Microsoft or partners&nbsp;</LI> <LI><STRONG>Automating tasks and low code solutions</STRONG> &gt; integrate the tools from to Power Platform (like Power Apps, Flows and Power BI dashboards)</LI> <LI><STRONG>Reference solutions</STRONG> &gt; targeted to professional developers, <A href="#" target="_self">these reference solutions (also known as App Templates)</A> can be used as-is or used as a head start for your own custom development.</LI> <LI><STRONG>Custom built apps</STRONG> &gt; use your well-known developer tools (like Visual Studio Code) to bring customized experiences inside Microsoft Teams</LI> </UL> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="BRK2160 Ignite - Managing App Lifecycle with Microsoft Teams Admin tools.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155837i8F07EBEF733C1CE4/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="BRK2160 Ignite - Managing App Lifecycle with Microsoft Teams Admin tools.png" alt="BRK2160 Ignite - Managing App Lifecycle with Microsoft Teams Admin tools.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Your custom built apps can be a Tab, a Bot or a Messaging extension using Adaptive Cards, Task modules or Notifications. These can connect to new or existing back-ends like web API's, web experiences, Azure or Microsoft 365 services.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="BRK2160 Ignite - Managing App Lifecycle with Microsoft Teams Admin tools.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155838iB41E654E95043FE5/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="BRK2160 Ignite - Managing App Lifecycle with Microsoft Teams Admin tools.png" alt="BRK2160 Ignite - Managing App Lifecycle with Microsoft Teams Admin tools.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Some sample cases by HAVI, Telstra and Craft Worldwide show some incredible productivity boosts when they integrated their existing experiences into Teams. In the case of HAVI, their onboarding time improved from what would typically take 4-5 hours to just 40 minutes. That's impressive!</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H2>App lifecycle</H2> <P>During the lifecycle of an app, different types of people get involved. All of them have different needs:</P> <UL> <LI><STRONG>Developer</STRONG> &gt; they need tools, documentation and a good understanding of the approval and certification process</LI> <LI><STRONG>Decision makers</STRONG> &gt; they need a good understanding of how things work regarding store, licensing, security, permissions to make well-informed decissions</LI> <LI><STRONG>IT Pros</STRONG> &gt; they're responsible for the actual role out of an app, the license assignment, configuration and customization options</LI> <LI><STRONG>Users</STRONG> &gt; finally, they can discover apps and try them</LI> </UL> <P>Ritika and Joey discussed on the improvements that will help developers and IT pros with their tasks during the app lifecycle.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H3>Developers</H3> <P>Major improvements are made with regards to the developer tools and resources to get a developer confident in building applications for Teams:</P> <UL> <LI><A title="New training modules on Microsoft Learn" href="#" target="_self">New training modules on Microsoft Learn</A>, specifically for Teams</LI> <LI>A new developer-focused exam currently in beta &gt; <A title="Exam MS-600: Building Applications and Solutions with Microsoft 365 Core Services (beta)" href="#" target="_self">Exam MS-600<SPAN style="font-family: inherit;">: Building Applications and Solutions with Microsoft 365 Core Services (beta)</SPAN></A></LI> <LI><SPAN style="font-family: inherit;">A <A title="Teams content pack" href="#" target="_self">Teams content pack</A> that loads sample data for Microsoft Teams into the Microsoft 365 E5 developer tenant you get when you join the <A title="Microsoft 365 Developer Program" href="#" target="_self">Microsoft 365 Developer Program</A>.</SPAN></LI> </UL> <P>Besides that, a new consent model is announced: the resource-specific consent. When building your own application, it might need to access data inside of the teams it is used in (through Microsoft Graph). This used to be an all or nothing consent, even allowing your app access to resources in other Teams, because it needed Groups.ReadWrite.All scope.

As an MVP I have been helping out in the Teams booths at Microsoft Ignite. A lot of questions were about how to integrate with the on-premises environment and what is the best practice when moving from Skype to Teams. This is a highly popular topic and is a shift from previous years where the questions were more about why.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="20191107_090039.jpg" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155876i7334CBE5A9903215/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="20191107_090039.jpg" alt="20191107_090039.jpg" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>They started the session head on to tackle the coexistence scenarios. The moment you assign a Microsoft Teams license to a user, you are in a coexistence mode. Island mode can be a confusing mode to be in because you have overlapping capabilities such as presence and chat. When you start a chat in Teams it lands in the receiver person's Teams and not in Skype for Business and so on.</P> <H2><STRONG>The modes available for good coexistence </STRONG></H2> <UL> <LI>Collaboration only in Teams, chat, federation, telephony, meetings and presence in Skype for Business</LI> <LI>Collaboration and meetings in Teams, chat, federation, and telephony stays in Skype for Business</LI> <LI>Teams only mode, chat, federation, telephony, and meetings are all moved to Teams <UL> <LI>The Skype for Business client is still installed on your computer, but it is only a meeting join client, in case you get invited to an external Skype for Business meeting</LI> <LI>Teams Only refer to the experience of a user who has been upgraded from Skype for Business to Microsoft Teams</LI> </UL> </LI> <LI>Read more about the coexistence modes at <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">docs.microsoft.com</A></LI> </UL> <P>The coexistence experience in Teams only mode for federation you need the latest click to run or the two months old MSI version of Office. That is when screen sharing buttons work correct in the interop scenario and you get proper notifications that the other party is using a different client then you are.</P> <P>A common question Bryan gets asked is; when will you make desktop sharing natively available in Teams? His answer is; get to Teams, then it will be native, these modes are only made to be a step on the way, the end-goal is to get to Teams.</P> <P>Before moving to the Teams features, think about your capabilities such as video interop, telephony, devices, and end-user training. László pointed out that you should not move the users to teams only experience unless they are ready for that experience. He recommended to go and see the adoption sessions available at Microsoft Ignite.</P> <H2><STRONG>Two options for telephony in Microsoft Teams</STRONG></H2> <P>The two options you have for telephony in Teams are either Calling Plans, numbers delivered by Microsoft, which works the same as it is in Skype for Business Online. If you have this deployed today, no change is required to get calling in Teams.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>The second option is using Direct Routing. Hybrid Skype for Business with telephony for online users through your on-premises environment, does not work in Teams. In those scenarios Direct Routing is the option, you use a certified SBC to connect a sip trunk to Teams.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Before they opened to the floor for an extensive Q&amp;A they shared their main key takeaways.

There are many ways that developers can deliver even more productivity to users by extending the out-of-the-box Teams experience. Messaging Extensions are one particular type of custom development that can be used to enhance the conversational experience to create a deep integration to line of business applications.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>In this theater session Wictor Wilén dived into the technical implementation to show us how to get started developing these Messaging Extensions, some tips and things to watch out for. Wictor has been a driving force in the community in the area of Teams development and is the person behind the popular <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Yeoman Generator for Teams</A>.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Messaging Extensions covers three different ways that Teams behavior can be enhanced:</P> <OL> <LI>Search Commands</LI> <LI>Action Commands</LI> <LI>Link Unfurling</LI> </OL> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Wictor concentrated on Search and Action commands in his demo where he was able to build tighter integration with Planner by developing:</P> <UL> <LI>A Search Command that enhanced the compose experience making it possible to search for a Planner task and insert the task as an Adaptive Card in the Teams channel.</LI> </UL> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="search-compose-extension.png" style="width: 400px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155751i2FAF04E82432C608/image-size/medium?v=v2&amp;px=400" role="button" title="search-compose-extension.png" alt="search-compose-extension.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <UL> <LI>An Action Command that allowed a user to create a Planner task from a chat message and then created an Adaptive Card (linking back to the Planner task).</LI> </UL> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="action-extension.png" style="width: 400px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155752iD3E12E805142786B/image-size/medium?v=v2&amp;px=400" role="button" title="action-extension.png" alt="action-extension.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="action-dialog.png" style="width: 400px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155753i2FF6476130897724/image-size/medium?v=v2&amp;px=400" role="button" title="action-dialog.png" alt="action-dialog.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>For both Search and Action commands the Bot can request that Teams displays a web page (URL) in a dialog. This provides the extension the ability to take full control of the user experience in the dialog and allows for a very rich custom experience. The Yeoman Generator for Teams is the fastest way to get started and through its interactive questions you can specifically create an app and have it scaffold up the pieces needed for a messaging extension.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>An important architectural concept to grasp when getting started with developing messaging extensions is that they require a Bot to respond to the events that are happening in Teams. Both search and action commands result in a series of requests being sent to a Bot (that is registered via a Teams manifest) to handle the extension. The Bot responds to these various commands with an appropriate JSON response. This flow of requests and responses between the Teams client and the backend Bot is not direct, rather it flows through the Microsoft Bot service. This means that during development the Bot needs to be available on a public URL. To fill this requirement Wictor discussed the&nbsp;<A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">ngrok</A>&nbsp;utility that can be used on a development machine to expose your localhost on a public URL. Ngrok also provides a great way to inspect the messages being sent between the Bot framework and your Bot while developing. The ngrok inspector is available while ngrok is running on the development machine and by default can be accessed on <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://localhost:4040</A></P>

<P>&nbsp;</P> <P>The source code used for the demo is available on GitHub <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://askwictor.com/THR3040-demo</A> and serves as a great reference for how to:</P> <UL> <LI>Implement a search command that displays a custom dialog (task module)</LI> <LI>Implement an action command that displays a custom dialog (task module)</LI> <LI>Perform an authentication/authorization flow within a messaging extension</LI> <LI>Creating an Adaptive Card in a Teams channel as a result of interactions with both the search and action commands</LI> <LI>Utilize an open source middleware library that Wictor has created that makes it far easier to handle the incoming request commands in your Bot and create the correctly formatted responses</LI>

THR1079 - Streamline Business Processes w/Microsoft Teams & Power Apps https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/ignite-live-blog-thr1079-streamline-business-processes-w/ba-p/990003 <P>Yesterday at Ignite I attended an awesome session delivered by Matthew Bolanos and Pete Daderko where they reviewed some cool new ways you can rapidly create apps in PowerApps and publish them to Teams for your organization to start using.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="OoppejNa (1).jpeg" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155446i3AA57FF527BF93C5/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="OoppejNa (1).jpeg" alt="OoppejNa (1).jpeg" /></span></P> <P>The presentation was kicked off by Pete to introduce what would be covered and then he handed off to Matthew to do the demo of creating an app in PowerApps for processing returns for a retail company and adding the app to the left bar in Teams.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="sUFSeZ2V.jpeg" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155444i05DBE0B1811FAAAB/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="sUFSeZ2V.jpeg" alt="sUFSeZ2V.jpeg" /></span></P> <P>Matthew started by demoing how to create an app from scratch using the PowerApps canvas studio which he compared to a combo of the ease of use of PowerPoint with the power of Excel. He quickly created a header at the top of the app using the WYSIWYG interface and then clicked the data source tab to open an Excel document that was living in his OneDrive. His Excel document has a table in it for recording each return record.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="image1.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155430iDD1FFD4B8505FF90/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="image1.png" alt="image1.png" /></span></P> <P>Once he added the data source, he was able to use it in a form and select which fields to show in the app, including the product title, price, comments, etc. which all showed up in a nice preformatted data entry form.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="image2.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155431i2175BBC490FC6489/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="image2.png" alt="image2.png" /></span></P> <P>Next, he added a submit button using IntelliSense in the formula bar at the top (like you would in Excel) to control what happens when the button is clicked to allow the user can submit their entries from the form. &nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="image4.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155433i8CBA5B3E42FFD8BE/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="image4.png" alt="image4.png" /></span></P> <P>One of the cool things about PowerApps is that there was no compiling needed, the app was being created in the background and just needed to be previewed. In preview mode he was able to fill out the form and hit submit and then he jumped over to Excel and we saw the table update with the new entry in real time… pretty cool for about 5 minutes of work and zero code.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Next, Matthew enhanced the app by using the AI Builder feature with a trained object detection model (that he built before the session and swapped in like a cooking TV show does with the fully baked cake) to accept a photo of whatever is being returned and auto-fill the form based on what the AI sees in the photo. He then showed a demo of the enhancement by uploading a photo of a camera filter and then the AI auto-populated the return form with camera filter details for him!</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="image6.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155436iB9EC39FAF77200D3/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="image6.png" alt="image6.png" /></span></P> <P>Lastly, Matthew published the app into Teams super easily by clicking the app in the PowerApps apps list, selecting his app and then clicking the Add to Teams button at the top. He followed the on-screen instructions, which downloaded an app file to load into Teams.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="image7.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155434i414369399EDD96E2/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="image7.png" alt="image7.png" /></span></P> <P>He then switched over to Teams and opened his list of apps. From there (if your admin has enabled it) you can simply click Upload a Custom App and upload the file that was downloaded from PowerApps.&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="image8.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155435i5C83552047A5B0D0/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="image8.png" alt="image8.png" /></span></P> <P>And then boom, the app is loaded on the left bar directly in Teams… couldn’t be easier.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="image9.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155438iAAFB04D9E3AA2A53/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="image9.png" alt="image9.png" /></span></P> <P>To learn more about adding a PowerApps app to Teams see the recently published blog post: <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/add-your-canvas-apps-to-teams/</A></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Watch the session recording here:&nbsp;<A href="#" target="_blank">https://myignite.techcommunity.microsoft.com/sessions/83760?source=sessions</A></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Randy Drisgill – Product Manager - <A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Rackspace</A></P> <P><A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">My Blog</A></P> <P><A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">My Twitter</A></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> Wed, 13 Nov 2019 21:36:57 GMT https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/ignite-live-blog-thr1079-streamline-business-processes-w/ba-p/990003 Randy Drisgill 2019-11-13T21:36:57Z Microsoft Ignite Live Blog: BRK3215-Microsoft Teams architecture update https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/microsoft-ignite-live-blog-brk3215-microsoft-teams-architecture/ba-p/983346 <P>At Ignite conference you get the latest information right from the experts and the product groups. Microsoft Teams is a hot topic and some hundred attendees formed a large crowd to get in the Teams architecture session in the morning.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="pic1.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155073iA71D2F0A0535C447/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="pic1.png" alt="Full interest in Teams architecture" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Full interest in Teams architecture</span></span></P> <P>Bill Bliss is the Platform Architect for Microsoft Teams and a founding member of the Microsoft Teams team. So, who else could better deliver insights of the Microsoft Teams architecture than Bill himself?</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="clipboard_image_1.jpeg" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155055i77ED19C3DD3CA49F/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="clipboard_image_1.jpeg" alt="Bill Bliss is the Platform Architect for Microsoft Teams" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Bill Bliss is the Platform Architect for Microsoft Teams</span></span></P> <P>So, let´s get started.</P> <P>Microsoft Teams is built on Azure services, Azure AD, Office 365 Groups, Microsoft Graph, and has the same enterprise-level security, compliance, and manageability as the rest of Office 365. On a very high level, Teams consists of the following components:</P> <UL> <LI>The <STRONG>Teams client</STRONG>, as frontend that comes as desktop app, web app and mobile app</LI> <LI>The <STRONG>Teams Services</STRONG>, providing the core backend services</LI> <LI>The <STRONG>Intelligent Communications Cloud</STRONG> powering all media services</LI> <LI>The <STRONG>Office 365 platform and services</STRONG></LI> <LI>Of course, all components run on <STRONG>Microsoft Azure</STRONG></LI> </UL> <P><EM>“Without Azure, we could not deliver Microsoft Teams”</EM>, Bill mentioned. All components require the security, compliance and agility of the cloud platform.</P> <P>Starting with the Teams client, there are a lot of technologies wrapped in the Desktop Electron app. The foundation is built in Typescript and Node.js, using frameworks such as jQuery, Lodash and Angular, while Angular will be replaced by React (which is already partly included) in future. Also, the Electron app includes native code parts, depending on the platform.</P> <P>The mobile apps are developed in the platform´s native code languages, in Swift for iPhone and iPad, and Java for Android. Both architectures are optimized for agility. The following slide shows that visually.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="clipboard_image_2.png" style="width: 800px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155053i7AD687EFD6FBF9A6/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="clipboard_image_2.png" alt="Teams client" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Teams client</span></span></P> <P>The “middle Tier” of Teams consists of a collection of microservices. This reduces complexity and allows efficient and flexible services, optimized for evolutionary changes. Behind the front end servers, there are a couple of services used such as Identity, Configuration, Team Management, Compliance, Notifications, and Extensibility. For these services, Microsoft is using a similar “rings” system to develop, test and deploy new services when needed.</P> <P>The Intelligent Communications Cloud provides basically messaging and calling and meeting functionality in many flavors, depending on the action. It leverages the Skype for Business services, handles the VOIP and PSTN calling and conference functionality and shows the presence. The “Trouter” enables devices behind firewalls to discover and communicate with each other.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="teams-architecture-2.png" style="width: 502px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155061i585DD9646D9476A8/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="teams-architecture-2.png" alt="Intelligent Communications Cloud" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Intelligent Communications Cloud</span></span></P> <P>From the Office 365 platform, Teams leverages the features of other Office 365 workloads, such as Exchange, Office 35 Groups, SharePoint, Stream, OneDrive for Business, Information Protection, and Power-BI for data and analytics. (Web) Applications used are OneNote, PowerApps, Planner, PowerPoint, Excel and Word. The vision of the Teams team is to be an App hub for Office 365 to bring together the best capabilities.</P> <P>Azure is the core platform that Teams is built on. The Azure platform allows massive scale support, a global footprint, redundancy and disaster recovery and compliance out of the box. The following graphics shows some Azure services that are used by Teams. Azure encapsulates all complexity of the single services and does a lot of work for Teams.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="teams-architecture-3.png" style="width: 555px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155062i4119EC1DB93013EB/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="teams-architecture-3.png" alt="Teams and Azure services" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Teams and Azure services</span></span></P> <P>Also, data at rest can be deployed to various data residencies and regions. Originally, Teams started with three regions: America, EMEA and APAC. Since then, now Canada, UK, Japan, India, and Australia have their own datacenter regions, as well as 3 US government cloud regions. Microsoft stores data at rest only within the customer´s location and they take data security very seriously.</P> <P>To get an impression of the technical complexity of Teams, the following slide shows an overview of components that are required to deliver the functionality, the colors identify the type.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="teams-architecture-4.png" style="width: 800px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155063iF394756BC0649880/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="teams-architecture-4.png" alt="Teams architecture" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Teams architecture</span></span></P> <P>Messages are transported from the Teams clients to the backend services and sent to subscribed client systems. Connectors and microservices, in the graphics at the at the bottom, take care that data flows to other systems. So, for example, if a user writes a message, that message generates a thread or is added to a reply chain. The members of a chat are stored in the “Roster”. The message is passed to the services beneath and other endpoints are notified that there´s something to update or to fire a trigger.</P> <P>Message synchronization is not an easy task. For example, if user A posts a message, it must be synced via chat service to user B, but if user B is already logged in at another device, but inactive, a long poll over TCP/IP is performed by the client and eventually, other subscribers must be informed. For iOS devices, a push notification is sent to via iOS Push, for Android to the Google notification system. In the background, Exchange and Information Protection can start, Search Indexes are re-populated, the Activity feed needs to update, Audit Logs are written, Aggregation services restart and so on. So, a simple message post triggers for a bunch of other services in the backend.</P> <P>The following graphics shows where data at rest is stored. Version 2 of the Chat service will use moving over to Cosmos DB. Images are stored in Azure Blob storage, other files in SharePoint and OneDrive for Business, calendar item sin Exchange and so on. Just to mention, Giphys are not stored, but their URL. Other cloud storage providers can be used as well.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="teams-architecture-5.png" style="width: 800px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155067iB94157A3DD3E8765/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="teams-architecture-5.png" alt="Teams storage" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Teams storage</span></span></P> <P>For telemetry, everything is recorded, but all is stripped out with random identifiers. This is part of the Office 365 promise. The same will be valid for detailed error logs is and Microsoft is very serious about data privacy and data protection.</P> <P>Behind the scenes, the Teams team is optimizing various services, such as the Calendar middle tier, the Exchange Connectors to talk to various versions of Exchange, storing different metadata for Outlook and teams, sending Voice and media to the media Mixer service etc. So, a lot of actions happen on the Teams server side. When a meeting is recorded, a “call recorder bot” does the recording and sends the data to the Azure media services that does the transcoding, then a message is sent to the user with the link to notify that the recording is available in Stream.</P> <P>Realtime Communications (RTC) is sent to the iCall API and then handled in different vertical channels, depending on whether it´s a Desktop call, a mobile call, or call via web technology. For Desktop and mobile calls, the SlimCore libraries do the work. For web RTC, a lot is done with Javascript before the call data goes to Relays, to a Registrar, various Call Controllers, Conversation and Media Controllers.</P> <P>Microsoft is also working on Teams on VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure). The goal is to create a performant VDI implementation that will work seamlessly for multiple partners. Well, not everything can be remoted, for example, if a machine does not have a microphone as a VM in a server room, but the idea is to use capabilities of smart devices as far as possible. The VDI Teams version is a different client (MSI package) and it requires to run some PowerShell commands to install it. On the VDI side, partner implementations must take care of the application situations, for example a notification window that must be shown on top of the Teams client.</P> <P>At the end, the compliance boundary ensures that customer data is processed within the allowed scope and in the predefined direction only. For example, you cannot send data to Teams from outside, or send emails from Teams. The last slide visualizes such data flows.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="teams-architecture-6.png" style="width: 800px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155069i0A58DB572F61386C/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="teams-architecture-6.png" alt="Compliance boundary" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Compliance boundary</span></span></P> <P>Also, Teams enables Office 365 Information Protection with all the tools such as eDiscovery, Legal Hold, Compliance content search, Retention and Audit Logs. So, the Teams architecture relies on trusted services.</P> <P>Bill did a great session informing about the complexity, challenges and latest updates of Microsoft Teams. Once the session is available online, the link will be added here.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Find out more about Microsoft Teams at the following resources:</P> <UL> <LI>BRK3215 - Microsoft Teams architecture update session (link will follow)</LI> <LI>Administration for Microsoft Teams:<BR /><A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/teams-overview</A></LI> <LI>Microsoft 365 developer training modules on Microsoft Learn:<BR /><A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://aka.ms/M365DevTrainin</A><A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">g</A></LI> <LI>Become Microsoft 365 Certified (Exam MS-600):<BR /><A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/learn/certifications/exams/ms-600</A></LI> <LI>Join the Office 365 Developer Program:<BR /><A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://aka.ms/IgniteO365DevProgram</A></LI> </UL> <P>&nbsp;</P> Wed, 06 Nov 2019 20:49:24 GMT https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/microsoft-ignite-live-blog-brk3215-microsoft-teams-architecture/ba-p/983346 Toni Pohl 2019-11-06T20:49:24Z Ignite Live Blog: Session BRK3215 Microsoft Teams Architecture Update https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/ignite-live-blog-session-brk3215-microsoft-teams-architecture/ba-p/985262 <P>Last year, during Ignite 2018, I also did a blog about the Microsoft Teams Architecture session. This year, I was really looking forward to the “update” session. I am getting asked a lot of questions about Teams Architecture from customers and in the community. A knowledge update is always good then.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>The session this year was presented by Bill Bliss. Bill is the Platform Architect for Microsoft Teams and one of the founding members of the Microsoft Teams team within Microsoft. A long time ago, Bill was also one of the founding members of the Outlook team, so ironically Bill is disrupting himself :)</img></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>The session started with an update about the client architecture. The architecture focuses on client agility and was designed with auto-update in mind. As you can see in the diagram below, the web and desktop clients share a lot of code. The desktop clients also use some native code for calling &amp; meeting.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK3125_3.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155029iB8CF28C85E02A3E1/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="BRK3125_3.png" alt="BRK3125_3.png" /></span></P> <P>Next topic was Teams Services, the middle tier of Teams. This consists of many micro services that handle the communication where Teams is depending on other services in Office 365. The diagram below shows these services. For example, synchronizing user information with Azure Active Directory, or enforcing data retention policies.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK3125_4.png" style="width: 400px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155030iF115E85F847D4E3B/image-size/medium?v=v2&amp;px=400" role="button" title="BRK3125_4.png" alt="BRK3125_4.png" /></span></P> <P>The next diagram shows the Intelligent Communications Cloud, basically the next-generation Skype services.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK3125_5.png" style="width: 400px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155032iC3A726CE01E8E8F1/image-size/medium?v=v2&amp;px=400" role="button" title="BRK3125_5.png" alt="BRK3125_5.png" /></span></P> <P><SPAN>This is,&nbsp;</SPAN>for example,&nbsp;<SPAN>where PSTN calling integration is located. </SPAN>The P<SPAN>ersonal </SPAN>E<SPAN>xpression service is </SPAN>used for <SPAN>emojis and stickers. </SPAN>The <SPAN>Experimentation config </SPAN>service is used to enable or disable certain features in the various deployment rings that exist for Teams. Think of rings for development, one for testing, one for preview, one for generally available (there are more rings, but those are the most important ones). The Experimentation service is also used for A/B testing of new features to discover which design is most effective.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Teams is not aiming to reinvent the wheel. Instead it leverages many existing Office 365 services and features. The following diagram shows the various services that Teams uses:</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK3125_6.png" style="width: 400px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155033i8B5E84AE9E03C3E0/image-size/medium?v=v2&amp;px=400" role="button" title="BRK3125_6.png" alt="BRK3125_6.png" /></span></P> <P>For example, Exchange is used to store messages for information protection purposes. Modern Groups (Office 365 Groups) are used for membership and owner definition. SharePoint and OneDrive for Business are used to store files. Stream is where all meeting recordings are stored. And for Information Protection, Teams uses the existing capabilities of eDiscovery, audit logging and retention policies. PowerBI is used for analytics, but that's for internal Microsoft use only. All data that is collected is stripped of any customer identifiable information.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Finally, Teams is using <SPAN>many Azure services. Not everything, but a lot. </SPAN>For example, n<SPAN>ot Quantum Computing, yet :)</img></SPAN>.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Teams uses in-region or in-country data residency for Teams chats, conversations, images, voicemail, contacts and for all SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business files. <SPAN>If a tenant is provisioned in Australia, Canada, the European Union, India, Japan, the United Kingdom, or the United States, then all the abovementioned Teams data is stored in that same region or country.</SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Below you’ll find a high level architecture overview of Teams, one level deeper than we just discussed:</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK3125_7.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155034i18595203F21249E9/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="BRK3125_7.png" alt="BRK3125_7.png" /></span></P> <P><SPAN>The Teams client communicates with underlying services directly, there is no middle tier, beside the Team Services we talked about before.</SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Here’s an overview of the messaging service:</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK3125_8.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155035i81758C8AE1051FD3/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="BRK3125_8.png" alt="BRK3125_8.png" /></span></P> <P><SPAN>Real-time notifications use long poll over </SPAN>TCP<SPAN>/</SPAN>IP<SPAN>. A Roster is where the members of a chat are stored. The Aggregation </SPAN>s<SPAN>ervice fetches messages in bulk when you have not connected to a chat or channel for a while.</SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>When it comes to storage of Teams related data, the following diagram is very useful:</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK3125_9.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155036iE92A460544BF88B9/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="BRK3125_9.png" alt="BRK3125_9.png" /></span></P> <P>As you can see, messages and images are stored both in Azure services and in Exchange. Like I mentioned before in this article, the ingestion in Exchange is for compliance reasons. The diagram shows that message storage is moving to CosmosDB. In fact, for 1-on-1 chats and group chats, that is already the case. Channel messages will follow later.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Next in this session, we switched gears a bit and we moved to meetings, calendar and presence. Interestingly, what Bill told us, Teams uses a Calendar middle tier in the calendar architecture to communicate with Exchange, because this middle tier layer provides support for Exchange on-premises as well.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><SPAN>When </SPAN>it comes to meetings, it’s very interesting to know that when <SPAN>a user starts a recording in a meeting, a recorder bot is added to the meeting which starts the recorder and will post a message with the link to the recording in the chat after the recording has been published to Stream.</SPAN> The flow looks as follows:</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK3125_10.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155038i1DEBB2AE4B8608EA/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="BRK3125_10.png" alt="BRK3125_10.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>The calling architecture is explained in the following diagram:</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK3125_11.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155040i9382A7EB63BCF6A5/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="BRK3125_11.png" alt="BRK3125_11.png" /></span></P> <P><SPAN>In the client calling stack, the </SPAN>C<SPAN>all </SPAN>C<SPAN>ontroller handles transfers,</SPAN> pick-ups and hang-ups, and<SPAN> renegotiate</SPAN>s<SPAN> when you hang up in the web and switch to </SPAN>PSTN<SPAN> for example</SPAN>. The policy store is used to check what policies apply to a user. "Is a user allowed to call to external phone numbers?" for example.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>The next topic of this session was about Teams on Virtual Desktop Infrastructure environments. Teams now supports VMware and Citrix environments. More platforms might follow later. What Microsoft has done together with their partners, is quite ingenious. Microsoft has created a number of WebRTC functions that override the client functions in order to create connections in the Thin Client instead of on the VM. This enables A/V to stream directly between the remote client and the thin client. Also, some intelligent element occlusion takes place. When a people card or a Teams notification popup is shown, the VDI partner needs to cut the overlay out of their window in order to see the popup window. Also, the partner software needs to keep track of the order of windows, to show the correct one on top. Interesting how this works and how this is solved!</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>The VDI version of Teams is a separate MSI package. If Teams is already installed in the VM environment, you have to uninstall Teams first before you install the VDI version. Also, for now, updates are a manual process (uninstall and then reinstall), but Microsoft is working on automating that. You have to install the client using the per-machine mode.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>You can find the VDI versions here:</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>X86 version: <SPAN><A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://teams.microsoft.com/downloads/desktopurl?env=production&amp;plat=windows&amp;download=true&amp;managedInstaller=true&amp;arch=x86</A></SPAN><BR />Install with: msiexec /i Teams_windows.msi /l*v msi_install.log ALLUSER=1<BR />Uninstall with: msiexec /passive /x Teams_windows.msi /l*v msi_uninstall.log</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>X64 version: <SPAN><A href="#" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://teams.microsoft.com/downloads/desktopurl?env=production&amp;plat=windows&amp;download=true&amp;managedInstaller=true&amp;arch=x64</A></SPAN><BR />Install with: msiexec /i Teams_windows_x64.msi /l*v msi_install_x64.log ALLUSER=1<BR />Uninstall with: msiexec /passive /x Teams_windows_x64.msi /l*v msi_uninstall_x64.log</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>After this, we came to the last topic of this session, the compliance boundaries of Microsoft Teams. The following diagram shows a very useful overview of how Teams communicates with the outside world:</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK3125_12.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/155041iD528AE7411620301/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="BRK3125_12.png" alt="BRK3125_12.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>That’s it! Thank you very much Bill Bliss! This was a great session, with a lot of great content.</P> Wed, 06 Nov 2019 19:25:32 GMT https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/ignite-live-blog-session-brk3215-microsoft-teams-architecture/ba-p/985262 Maarten Eekels 2019-11-06T19:25:32Z THR1091 - Microsoft Teams: Finding your teams' formula for success https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/thr1091-microsoft-teams-finding-your-teams-formula-for-success/ba-p/271255 <P>In this <A href="#" target="_blank">theater session</A>, Gorana Konevska Jankoska leads us through the process of introduction of all of the great features and capabilities which Microsoft Teams members can achieve using this application, and how can you as a user find your teams’ formula for success if you implement and use Microsoft Teams within your organization.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Gorana_THR1091.jpg" style="width: 907px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/56378i63DB0955EF11BC15/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Gorana_THR1091.jpg" alt="Gorana_THR1091.jpg" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>First, it has to be mentioned that today the information is the most important component for success. Success is achieved with good organization, collaboration, filtering and sharing in-time the most important information with your team members. And having one centralized space where you can do all the co-working with the fellow team members, saves time-effort and gives the employees safe environment for the team activities, such as: co-working on a document, following third party services, scheduling meetings, recording meetings and many more.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="THR1091_Teams.jpg" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/56379i62E972AAFDA21F82/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="THR1091_Teams.jpg" alt="THR1091_Teams.jpg" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Chat is just one part of the collaboration space this service offers, and which can be divided into channels. Channels are separate places within one team, where team members can collaborate on different topics. And this is wonderful because your fellow colleagues will not search where some question has been posted, where was the document attached or where to collaborate on a certain project. People do not use this service just for chat and meetings – they use it for find information, work on a document, presentation or a project. There are so many external connectors and applications you can add to your team, so it will be rich with content and your team members will always come back here.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>And that is not all! That is just the beginning! The meetings now offer the customers full experience, sharing applications and desktop, as well as recording. Why we mention this as success for teams? Because even if some of the employees cannot attend the meeting, he or she will be informed by the recording posted into that channel where the meeting was held. There will be no misunderstanding, no delay of information, and every note taken during the meeting will also be available.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Another feature is Teams live events which enable users to communicate with larger audience, up to 10.000 people. This brings successful sharing of content with audience inside as well as outside the organization.&nbsp;Every step of the session we see that Microsoft Teams is a service that offers full productivity set to customers.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>In this session Gorana recommends using Microsoft Planner and other Office 365 applications which can be integrated with Microsoft Teams. Microsoft Planner can be used as an add-on to one team for bringing more productivity. The team members will save time and effort without leaving the team in order to work on a plan.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Of course, there is also integration with Outlook, where even if your Teams app is not opened, you will still receive messages in your Outlook from your collaboration environment. So, the success story here is that you will never miss anything!</P> <P>Use bots and use app store for enriching channels and giving your team best collaboration space! The following slide shows why the customers have great success and great experience with Microsoft Teams:</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline"

successfully build excellent collaboration environment.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="THR1091_Next_Steps.jpg" style="width:

Communications Server 2007 へのアップグレードや、Office Communications Server 2007 + Live Meeting 2007 から Lync Server 2010 へのアップグレード、あるいは Lync Server 2010/2013 から Skype for Business 2015 へのアップグレードのような比較的単純なものとは異なり、検討しなくてはならない課題の多いプロジェクトとなります。<BR /> <BR /> これは、後者のアップグレードは、突き詰めればサーバーとクライアントのアップグレードであるのに対し、S4B からTeams への移行は、業務の進め方・考え方そのものの転換が必要となるからです。<BR /> <BR /> もちろん、この二者には共通項もたくさん存在します。しかし、多くの組織にとって、Microsoft Teams の導入はとりもなおさず、新しい働き方への転換を意味します。この転換を成功に導くためには、チェンジ マネージメントの考え方を採り入れる必要があるのはそのためです。</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>このセッションの開催場所として Debbie Arbeeny 氏が割り当てられたのが、オープン ホールウェイ シアターであったことは幸運だったと思います。このような形式の開催場所を嫌がる向きもありますが、以下の写真でもわかるように、3 階バルコニーにまで及ぶ多くの聴衆が集まりました。</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><EM><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper

<P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Arbeeny 氏はまず、チェンジ マネージメントと育児の類似点から話を始めました。チェンジ マネージメントも育児も、一晩ですべてが終わるというものではなく、継続的な変化をもたらすためには、支援とともに、対象が伸びる環境の醸成、そして導きが必要であるところが共通しています。<BR /> <BR /> <STRONG>【具体的なメリットを打ち出す】</STRONG><STRONG><BR /> </STRONG>Skype for Business から Microsoft Teams への転換を成功させるためには、まずはペルソナとユースケース シナリオの理解、バリュー メッセージの打ち出し方といったところから始める必要があります。<BR /> <BR /> ただ単に 「Skype から Teams にアップグレードします」 ではなく、「皆さんのチームの働き方と、あとは 《具体的なメリット》 があるので、この部署は Skype for Business から Microsoft Teams に移行します。移行することで、こんなことができるようになりますよ、こんなメリットがありますよ」 という姿勢を打ち出すことが重要です。</P> <P><BR /> <STRONG>【…しかし、やり過ぎは禁物】</STRONG><STRONG><BR /> </STRONG>Skype for Business から Microsoft Teams への転換は、単純にルック・アンド・フィールが変わる程度の変更ではなく、もっと抜本的な変更であるため、Arbeeny 氏は 「あまりにいろいろ変え過ぎないようにすることも大切」 と説明しました。同氏によると、Teams への転換と同時に発生することが考えられる変化 (別のテクノロジーやプロセスへの移管、デバイスのアップグレードやオフィスの移転なども含めた物理的な変化など) も一緒に考え、あまりに大きな変化が同時に発生しないように配慮することも重要であるとのことです。<BR /> <BR /> <STRONG>【多様性に対応できる、重層的なサポート体制を】</STRONG><STRONG><BR /> </STRONG>同氏はまた、変化を成功させるためには、アウェアネス キャンペーン、トレーニング、サポートなどを重層的に用意することの重要さを強調しました。これは、同じ組織に所属はしていても、働き方や物事の捉え方、学習の方法などは個人によって異なるためである、との説明が加えられました。</P> <P><BR /> <STRONG>【ピア チャンピオンはなぜ重要か】</STRONG><STRONG><BR /> </STRONG>もうひとつ重要なポイントとして同氏が指摘したのは、変化やその内容、心構えについてチームメイトたちに伝えてくれるピア チャンピオンの助力を仰ぐことの大切さでした。<BR /> <BR /> IT 部門やマネージメント層が、組織のひとりひとりのレベルまできめ細やかな変更対応策を用意することは、現実的にいって困難なものがあります。「上から」 では手の届かない細やかさで、一般ユーザーと同じ目線で考え、同じ現場に立つチームメイトとしての立場から仲間を支えることができるピア チャンピオンの存在は、この意味で非常に貴重なものといえます。</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="THR1043 4.jpg" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/56027i9C5421360603E3DF/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="THR1043 4.jpg" alt="THR1043 4.jpg" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>同氏はまた、Skype for Business から Microsoft Teams への転換によってもたらされる変化は、企業・組織が手に追えるレベルのものでなくてはならない、と強調しました。<BR /> <BR /> 例えば、初日から 「はい、これが変更点全部です」 とばかりにトレーニングを行うのは避けるべきです。そのかわり、現在ユーザーが Skype for Business をどのように利用しているかを把握し、Microsoft Teams ではそれらのアクションをどのように実行できるか、という観点からトレーニングをスタートさせるほうがはるかに有益です。このような観点でトレーニングを行うことで、変化が大きすぎて戸惑うユーザーの負担を軽くすることが可能になります。</P> <P><BR /> このようなチェンジ マネージメントの実例として、同氏は実際に顧客が実施したトレーニング“LyncNation” について解説しました。このプログラムでは、エンド ユーザーは毎週新しい課題を与えられますが、課題のクリアには 「やったことのないアクションを一つだけ実行する」 だけで充分と設定されました。結果、エンド ユーザーには 「トレーニングがこんなに単純=使うのが簡単なツール」 との印象を与えることができ、利活用率は期待を大きく上回るものとなりました。</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>【フィードバックを重視し、シャドー </STRONG><STRONG>IT </STRONG><STRONG>を防ぐ】</STRONG></P> <P>Arbeeny 氏は、フィードバックのループをしっかりと確立し、導入を担当するチームにユーザーの声が届くような環境の重要さについて説明しました。ユーザーのフィードバックを導入に反映することができるようなコミュニケーション体制の確立は、ユーザー エクスペリエンスの向上ばかりではなく、使用量と突き合わせて 「ユーザーは Microsoft Teams の利用をどのように捉えているか、使って便利だと思っているか」 を実際にデータ化することにも役立ちます。<BR /> <BR /> また、経営層やマネージメント陣に先陣を切って Teams を使ってもらい、脱メール/Skype for Business を実現する 「リーダー先行型」 の変化が有効である場合もあります。</P> <P><BR /> ただし、「Teams 以外のオンライン ツール」 にユーザーが流れていってしまい、その結果としてシャドー IT の拡大などの事態が起きないよう、注意しておく必要はあります。このような事態は、ユーザー エクスペリエンスの低下と、場合によってはデータロスなどのインシデントの火種となり得るからです。</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>【事前準備の大切さ】</STRONG><STRONG><BR /> </STRONG>Arbeeny 氏はセッションの締めくくりとして、変化をポジティブなものとして提示すること、サクセス ストーリーを共有することの重要さに触れました。「他社・他部署にはこの変化の結果、こんなメリットがあった」 という、「同じ目線」 でのサクセス ストーリーの共有は、エンド ユーザーの間に 「自分たちにもできそうだ」 という雰囲気づくりにつながります。</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>また、登場する新機能について 「こんなこともできるようになる」「こんな便利な機能が出た」 と、ポジティブな情報を発信することも重要です。3-5年に一度変更があるかないかであったオンプレミス版とは異なり、オンライン版では数週間おきに機能変更が発生するからです。<BR /> <BR /> 最後に同氏は聴衆に向け、前もって準備をしておくこと、そして登場する新機能について知っておくことの重要性について力説しました。機能を知っておくことで、ユーザーへの情報発信やサポートも適切に行うことができるようになります。</P> <P><BR /> <STRONG>【おわりに】</STRONG><BR /> 全体として、同氏の提案は Microsoft Teams への転換だけではなく、組織で起こるどのような変化にも適用できるものでありつつ、Skype for Business から Microsoft Teams への転換を成功させるためには絶対に抑えておきたいポイントを示してくれた、と感じました。</P> Thu, 11 Oct 2018 14:31:08 GMT

BRK3230 Learn how Microsoft does IT: The journey from Skype for Business to Teams https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/ignite-live-blog-brk3230-learn-how-microsoft-does-it-the-journey/ba-p/269620 <P>Most people don’t have to figure out how to migrate 220,000+ users from Skype for Business to Microsoft Teams, then share their process with the world.&nbsp; But that’s just what Pouneh Kaufman and her team of 10 had to do.&nbsp; She, and three of her team members, spoke at the Microsoft Ignite 2018 conference in Orlando this week, explaining just how they did it.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Pouneh, who is responsible for End User Services Engineering for Team Productivity, shared the stage with Sara Bush, Anas Shaikh, and Dan Benedict.&nbsp; They took turns explaining their process.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>They took a three part approach to their upgrade journey.&nbsp; First, they evaluated technical readiness.&nbsp; Was the product mature enough to meet users’ needs? Second, they planned for user adoption, which incorporated internal communications, training focused on common user scenarios, and extensive listening for feedback. Third, they relied heavily on a network of change agents spread world-wide to amplify their efforts.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Their goals in migrating to Microsoft Teams were also threefold:</P> <UL> <LI>Meet the needs of the modern workplace. It’s all about productivity gains.&nbsp; Putting communication and collaboration tools together into a single user experience makes people more efficient. Using Teams as the front end to the entire Office 365 toolkit, especially when, as part of user adoption, you are streamlining business processes that rely on collaboration and communication, can lead to dramatic productivity wins.&nbsp;</LI> <LI>Simplify meeting and calling experiences</LI> <LI>Provide better call quality (for both voice and video) and meeting quality and better reliability.</LI> </UL> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>They established six guiding principles</P> <UL> <LI>Listen using telemetry and feedback to make sure users are happier as a result</LI> <LI>Avoid disrupting their sales staff and finance department during key times such as end of month/quarter/fiscal year</LI> <LI>Focus on the productivity wins</LI> <LI>Use the controls the service provides to effectively manage the tenant</LI> <LI>Leverage the local IT Managers (ITMs) in each geography</LI> <LI>Establish end-user confidence through transparency and honesty about end user experiences</LI> </UL> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Migrating from Skype for Business to Teams is about focusing on the communications workloads: calling, live events, meetings, and messaging.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>How do you measure the success of the migration?&nbsp; They count the ways.&nbsp;</P> <UL> <LI>Number and severity of support tickets <OL> <LI>They carefully monitor the support tickets and escalations. They also provide a “white glove” upgrade experience to executives to ensure executive backing for their efforts.&nbsp; Microsoft IT does have the advantage of direct access to the Teams product team to report bugs.&nbsp; If you are not Microsoft, you can report bugs by opening a ticket in the Office 365 Admin site.&nbsp; Feature requests can be provided through the Feedback button in the Teams app and submitting or voting up suggestions in User Voice at <SPAN><A href="#" target="_blank">https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com</A></SPAN>,&nbsp; &nbsp;</LI> </OL> </LI> <LI>Number of users who request to defer upgrade</LI> <LI>Percent of calls that get a 2 star or less rating is below a target level</LI> <LI>Percent of healthy calls (no call issues) is above a target level</LI> <LI>Percent of healthy meetings (meetings that have no issues) is above a target level</LI> <LI>Measures of end-user sentiment, including surveys, Yammer feedback, user voice feedback, and feedback from champions</LI> </UL> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Upgrading is all about moving end users into “Teams Only Mode.”&nbsp; This means they stop using Skype for Business and send and receive all IMs, Calls, and Meetings in Teams except they can still join Skype for Business meetings scheduled by others or that they had previously scheduled.&nbsp; Other users still using Skype for Business can IM or call a user in Teams Only Mode, and the user in Teams Only Mode will receive the IM or call in Teams.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>How do we identify users that are ready to be upgraded?&nbsp; If they are in Skype for Business online, have not opted to defer, and do not have any business restrictions that would interfere.&nbsp; Users could opt to defer by filling out a survey, but in the survey, they must explain why they needed to defer. The survey data is analyzed to identify common roadblocks that need to be overcome.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Microsoft offers its end users two webinars in using Teams. The first one is called “Art of Teamwork:&nbsp; Get Productive”.&nbsp; It is for new Teams users and helps users get oriented and become productive.&nbsp; The second class is called &nbsp;“The Art of Teamwork: Design your Toolkit.”&nbsp; This one is about creating and managing Teams. They also provided snackable videos, which you can find at <SPAN><A href="#" target="_blank">https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLfXJ1GA7BJR3KtI9-i5xL9f28q4f4kCA_</A></SPAN>.&nbsp; Pouneh’s team also noticed a great downstream effect of training: for every person that attends training, about 6 more have increased and sustained usage.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>A communication and marketing effort was a key part of their upgrade process.&nbsp; They promoted Teams and their training for it in their Yammer network and on their intranet.&nbsp; They promoted their Champions and the snackable videos.&nbsp; They used physical and digital signage to get the message out. They shared success stories.&nbsp; They posted conference room upgrade information both in each conference room and on their intranet.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Another key success factor was their use of a Champions program to create and maintain a network of influencers within the business that would promote the use of Teams.&nbsp; Keys to the Champions program include:</P> <UL> <LI>Champions are easily identifiable by end users. This was accomplished by giving them a badge on their profile picture and physical signage identifying a champion for a given office location as well as identifying them in communications.</LI> <LI>Champions are given training and a support group, the custom badge on their profile picture, and some promotional items. They are also given opportunities to engage with the Teams product team.&nbsp; If you are not Microsoft, the best way to engage with the product team is via Karuana Gatimu’s Champion’s Corner in the Microsoft Technical Community: <SPAN><A href="https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/Champions-Corner/bd-p/ChampionsCorner" target="_blank">https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/Champions-Corner/bd-p/ChampionsCorner</A></SPAN>. &nbsp;Also have your champions join Microsoft’s public Office 365 Champions program here: <SPAN><A href="#" target="_blank">https://aka.ms/O365Champions</A></SPAN></LI> <LI>Champions are asked to evangelize the use of Teams. Champions are trained to deliver the Art of Teamwork webinars.</LI> </UL> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>To summarize, their internal adoption program consisted of driving awareness, providing training, driving engagement, measurement, and management.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Watching the video of their session will help you:</P> <UL> <LI>Define your approach to upgrading from Skype for Business to Teams</LI> <LI>Define success and rollback criteria</LI> <LI>Define your support strategy</LI> <LI>Define your change management and adoption strategy</LI> </UL> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>As you watch, here are some acronym expansions and a definition that will help you understand the slides:</P> <UL> <LI>GESS is Global Employee Satisfaction Survey</LI> <LI>ITMs are IT Managers</LI> <LI>FED is Field Engagement Delivery</LI> <LI>ICM/SNOW is where they track their Help Desk and incident management tickets</LI> <LI>CSEO is Core Services Engineering and Operations</LI> <LI>MI is Major Incident</LI> <LI>RGS is Response Group Services, which is a group of on-call team members who respond to incidents that arise.</LI> <LI>Elite is a Microsoft internal opt-in early adopter program</LI> </UL> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Go watch it now:<A title="BRK3230 Video" href="#" target="_blank"><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="IMG_20180926_140031.jpg" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55978iC21D84A115C465C3/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="IMG_20180926_140031.jpg" alt="IMG_20180926_140031.jpg" /></span></A>&nbsp;</P> <P><SPAN><A href="#" target="_blank">https://myignite.techcommunity.microsoft.com/sessions/65523</A></SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H1>About the Presenters</H1> <H2>Pouneh Kaufman<span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-left" image-alt="Pouneh.jpg" style="width: 200px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55983i4ABC7836DA397C28/image-size/small?v=v2&amp;px=200" role="button" title="Pouneh.jpg" alt="Pouneh.jpg" /></span></H2> <P>Pouneh is Principal Program Manager of End User Services Engineering for Team Productivity for Microsoft Corporation.

We are all pushed back to change, because we want stability.&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>For people to adopt and use something new, there&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>has to</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;be a preparation process. Just because something is installed on their computer, doesn’t mean that they use it, or</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;that they even know how benefic</SPAN><SPAN>ial it is for them.</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>And change is not “one size fits all”. There are age groups, cultural differences and many</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;other points where people and organization distinguish one from another.&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>Consider what are the job roles and what value will bring Microsoft Teams to the people from marketing, sales or warehouse</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;department. How they communicate now and what do they need in the communication process</SPAN><SPAN>.&nbsp;&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>And this is a moment, where every company should make a good planning according to the main&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>differences because this adoption planning process will result with success or failure.</SPAN><SPAN data-ccp-props="{&quot;201341983&quot;:0,&quot;335559739&quot;:200,&quot;335559740&quot;:252}">&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>Planning and piloting: This phase is also very important because it gives correct direction where in the process of transition the company really is. And it is not just technical point of view important, but also some other aspects as: is the training working? Are the users ready to use this tool? Is everything set for launch?</SPAN><SPAN data-ccp-props="{&quot;201341983&quot;:0,&quot;335559739&quot;:200,&quot;335559740&quot;:252}">&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>During the whole process of transition, we have to keep on mind that this is ongoing process – not something that&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>happened quickly. The people need time to accommodate&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>on change (</SPAN><SPAN>research studies say that sometimes this process may go from 21 days up to 1</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;year).</SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG><SPAN>How to begin user planning for you upgrade to Teams</SPAN></STRONG><SPAN data-ccp-props="{&quot;201341983&quot;:0,&quot;335559739&quot;:200,&quot;335559740&quot;:252}">&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>The first thing to consider is how many changes in general are happening to your organization? Then the second question would be: are you upgrading the other applications, adding new devices?</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>Debbie advices to create “an umbrella&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>change</SPAN><SPAN>”.&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>This is such a wonderful advice because if there are&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>too many changes going on and you cover them under one “theme”, then the people will see not too many separate changes – but&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>they will see parts of one big change.</SPAN><SPAN data-ccp-props="{&quot;201341983&quot;:0,&quot;335559739&quot;:200,&quot;335559740&quot;:252}">&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>Another great tip is to see which functionalities do people use from Skype for Business,</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;and offer them the same functionalities in Microsoft Teams.</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;That way people will see the same benefits and will not feel like they miss something.</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>The most important thing in this stage is to see who will be early adopters</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;(champions)&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;and which people are slow adopters.

While firstline covers quite a few industries, retail is a huge employer with staff widely distributed across store estates. After an introduction from <STRONG>Keara James</STRONG> (Product Marketing Manager and part time lettuce wrangler impersonator), <STRONG>Bernd Diel</STRONG> and <STRONG>Hagen Deike</STRONG> from <EM>dm-drogerie markt p</EM>resented how they had successfully implemented Teams&nbsp;with now more than 20,000 monthly active users growing daily alongside Yammer, Exchange and other Office 365 components.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><EM>dm</EM> are a leading drugstore retailer in Germany and 13 other European countries with 40K employees in 1,920 stores in Germany alone.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>With the support of the <EM>dm</EM> board, their strategy was to empower their firstline workers with a perfect digital workplace. The logic was simple, their firstline workers are first with their customers, first with their products and first with their brand. While they know this isn’t something that can be measured, this means they serve their customers better, and so end up selling more lipstick, diapers and other products. <EM>dm</EM> were really clear that the struggles and frustrations of firstline staff using out of date technology impacts customers and so sales, a confident, well informed sales assistant is an independent entrepreneur in their business.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="20180927_165203768_iOS.jpg" style="width: 400px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55373i33A0E68E5557BC33/image-size/medium?v=v2&amp;px=400" role="button" title="20180927_165203768_iOS.jpg" alt="20180927_165203768_iOS.jpg" /></span></P> <P><STRONG>The Vision</STRONG></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="dmvision.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/54802iF01C31DC1DE3133B/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="dmvision.png" alt="dmvision.png" /></span></STRONG></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><EM>dm</EM> want their firstline staff to be digitally equipped wherever they are on their shop floor, being able to instantly contact other colleagues for example in a stock room or another store using a Teams chat or call. As the first brand ambassadors for their company they want them to have all the information they need, in the modern world where a popular YouTube review of their products can send large numbers of customers into a store they can instantly provide information to their colleagues to be ready and knowledgeable. They also use Yammer alongside Teams for border less communications between colleagues across their stores and offices to share knowledge and solve issues.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>The Project</STRONG></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>From the start the project team saw this as a change project rather than a technical project, and placed an emphasis on communicating and engaging with <EM>dm</EM> colleagues. It wasn’t about delivering features, focusing on empowering the employees with more abilities and skills. Their motto was that the rate of change should be less than the rate of adoption. The project team used Office 365 as eating their own dogfood, particularly Teams, SharePoint, Sway and Planner. The most common question ever heard from their users was “Which tool to use when?” for which they created their own video to position Teams and Yammer to share with their employees.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>The Foundations</STRONG></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><EM>dm</EM>&nbsp;chose to start by equiping 25,000 of their staff in their German stores with mobile phones as part of this initiative (other countries to follow), and had to build out the authentication, device management and network capability to support these well. By considering how and where their staff would use devices they identified that their existing WiFi didn’t reach all the back office locations where staff worked, so extended the range with additional access points.</P> <P>They also discovered that staff were experiencing some performance that was not adequate on their network. They quickly showed that this wasn’t the experience on other, simpler networks so did a thorough analysis of how their network controls influenced performance. The biggest simple solution was to bypass traffic around the layers of proxies and network inspection as their traffic left for the internet. There’s no point in scanning this content, they know it will contain company information and that they are about to save it into Microsoft’s cloud, why slow the experience by scanning it so thoroughly. In the fullness of time they would like to break out their internet connections locally to each office and store rather that routing through one point.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="dmnetwork.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/54803iC12FC496177A38BD/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="dmnetwork.png" alt="dmnetwork.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Questions</STRONG></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Q. Big investment in devices, what is the ROI?</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>A.This wasn’t really a big concern to <EM>dm</EM>, their objectives as a business to improve their colleagues satisfaction and hence the service they give customers was clearly worth it. It should also be noted that when you purchase 25,000 mobile phones you would be surprised how low a price you can get! This first batch has gone to staff in their German stores, and covers most staff however there are some roles that are maybe just a few hours a week that don’t qualify. They are soon to buy more to roll out to their stores in other countries.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Q. Are they concerned about bypassing traffic to Office 365 that might not be to their tenant?</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>A. They are big supporters of the zero-trust infrastructure approach. If content needs protecting it should be protected with encryption, not rely on where it is stored.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="20180927_170742108_iOS.jpg" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/54809i53168E12C54E6BF7/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="20180927_170742108_iOS.jpg" alt="20180927_170742108_iOS.jpg" /></span><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="20180927_165743470_iOS.jpg" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55374i80134C7850FB6641/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="20180927_165743470_iOS.jpg" alt="20180927_165743470_iOS.jpg" /></span></P> Wed, 10 Oct 2018 19:20:28 GMT https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/microsoft-ignite-live-blog-brk-2366-how-one-of-the-biggest/ba-p/263716 Steven Collier 2018-10-10T19:20:28Z Ignite: BRK3170 Enabling the Modern Workplace w/ #Office365 & #MicrosoftTeams w/ @Karuana (Dutch) https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/ignite-brk3170-enabling-the-modern-workplace-w-office365-amp/ba-p/266481 <DIV class="lia-message-body-wrapper lia-component-message-view-widget-body"> <DIV id="bodydisplay" class="lia-message-body"> <DIV class="lia-message-body-content"> <P><SPAN>Microsoft Teams is onderdeel van een grotere strategie voor het transformeren van uw bedrijf en het empowerment van uw gebruikers. </SPAN><A href="#" target="_blank">In deze sessie</A>, deelde&nbsp;<A href="https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/user/viewprofilepage/user-id/27835" target="_blank">Karuana Gatimu</A> <SPAN>bewezen tactieken op het gebied van adoptie door middel van Change Management.

Een aantal voorbeelden hiervan zijn:</DIV> <DIV class="lia-message-body-content"><BR />* Communicate - via chat, vergaderingen en gesprekken.<BR />* Collaborate - met geïntegreerde Office 365 apps.<BR />* Customize and Extend - met 3rd party apps, processen en apparaten.<BR />* Work with confidence - dankzij de veiligheid, compliance en beheersbaarheid op Enterprise niveau.</DIV> <DIV class="lia-message-body-content"><BR />Bovendien sprak Karuana, dat Microsoft Teams naast bovengenoemde punten, een oplossing kan zijn voor het oplossen van&nbsp;gefragmenteerde samenwerk ervaringen. In plaats van te hoeven springen tussen verschillende webbrowser tabbladen, applicaties en apparaten om uw werk gedaan te krijgen, maakt Teams het mogelijk om u werk meer te consolideren en in dezelfde applicatie te blijven. Maar hoe kun je ervoor zorgen dat de adoptie succesvol is?<BR /> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><SPAN class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" style="width: 999px;"><SPAN class="lia-message-image-wrapper"><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="ka.jpg" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55384iF46EE35E05D52702/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="ka.jpg" alt="ka.jpg" /></span></SPAN></SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P style="margin: 0in; font-family: Calibri; font-size: 11.0pt;" lang="nl">Karuana benadrukte dat adoptie gaat over relatie management.

Elk Office 365 abonnement komt in aanmerking voor toegang tot het FastTrack team, dat kan helpen om het proces te vereenvoudigen. Als het een ingewikkeldere adoptie is, kan Microsoft helpen om partners in uw regio te vinden.<BR />Karuana legde vervolgens de vijf stappen van een service adoptie framework uit:</DIV> <DIV class="lia-message-body-content"><BR /><STRONG>1.

MVP Loryan Strant also shares stories of how Australian companies have adopted Teams for job task scenarios.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Karuana starts the session by describing content switching. This is when you hop around to all those different experiences to get the job done. I am sure you have already experienced this. You start in Outlook to check your meetings for the upcoming day and catch up on email messages, then you go to a SharePoint site for department specific information and projects, then hop over to OneDrive to get to your personal files, and on and on and on. Microsoft Teams is the new center of gravity, it is designed to bring these things together.&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Many resources are shared at the start of the&nbsp; session and you will find these throughout this blog article.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Whether you are new to Teams, fairly familiar with the Teams or consider yourself an expert, this <A href="https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/Microsoft-Teams/ct-p/MicrosoftTeams" target="_blank">Teams Tech Community site</A> is one you may want to check from time-to-time.

You may want to start the user adoption journey by getting all potential team members to take the Teams Quiz. With 6 simple questions it helps you get quick insights into your collaboration style. Think of it as an icebreaker to start a conversation about Teams and drive curiosity and interest in usage. Find out what kind of Team Player you are by following <A href="#" target="_blank">this link</A>. Then share your results on Twitter with the hashtag #EmpowerEveryone.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>I took the quiz and learned many things about what motivates me, how I like to process information, work on projects and what I look for in a leader. Key takeaways for me were:</P> <UL> <LI>I'm motivated by solving issues and getting things done.&nbsp;</LI> <LI>I process information in a visual way.&nbsp; I visualize success and I'm ruled by a sense of accomplishment, not the clock.&nbsp;</LI> <LI>People around my age make up about 43% of the workforce.</LI> <LI>In a leader, I want honesty (71%), trustworthiness (58%), and the ability to inspire (54%)</LI> </UL> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="My Teams Quiz Results" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55715i3895011BA56C833E/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Teams Quiz Results.jpg" alt="My Teams Quiz Results" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">My Teams Quiz Results</span></span></P> <P>Knowing what motivates you and your fellow team members can definitely make a difference in how you communicate and visualize work. It might be grabbing attention by adding<STRONG>&nbsp;</STRONG>emojis, gifs and stickers to conversations. Pinning a document or a Power BI report to a channel so it&nbsp;is front and center for gathering quick insights and making quick decisions. It may also be the difference between an informal chat to how your host a live Teams web meeting.&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Other great resources for adoption and learning include:</STRONG></P> <P><A href="#" target="_blank">Success with Teams&nbsp;</A></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Success with Teams" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55694i8F1C3426D7A33AD0/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Success with Teams.jpg" alt="Success with Teams" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Success with Teams</span></span></P> <P><A href="#" target="_blank">Coffee in the Cloud</A> - snackable bite size learning videos</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Coffee in the Cloud" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55695iF2A01BE8EEA1BDDD/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Coffee in the Cloud.jpg" alt="Coffee in the Cloud" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Coffee in the Cloud</span></span>&nbsp;</P> <P>Karuana mentions FastTrack and how it can help you deploy Microsoft cloud solutions including Teams. If you have eligible subscriptions to Microsoft 365, Azure, or Dynamics 365 you can use FastTrack. Go to <A href="#" target="_blank">this site</A> for more information.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>You may want to consider starting an early adopters’ program. Look for high impact scenarios with low difficulty. Get those early adopters to volunteer to try these scenarios out and give feedback. Consider making the early adopters your champions. They can be your cheerleaders, help drive excitement and share the message for stronger adoption and usage. Connect your champions with the Champions Program found <A href="#" target="_blank">here</A>. They will get:</P> <UL> <LI>Email communications with the latest news, tips and resources.</LI> <LI>Access to champion-peer networking.</LI> <LI>Partnerships with Microsoft at events and meetups and access to Microsoft subject matter experts.</LI> </UL> <P>Once you assemble your team, you need to define strategy and scenarios to drive culture change with Teams. These scenarios start with a human need, not the technology. Start with simple scenarios mapped out by impact and difficulty. &nbsp;Highlight the wins – share the small with the business leader and business unit and ask what else you can help with – do this in small bites.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Not sure how to begin the design of a team? Remember to bring the tribe of people together in a team that has the right channels as topics. Try to not restrict teams from being created, you want these to form organically as much as possible. For teams that will be named to match a&nbsp;business unit such as Human Resources, Information Technology, or Finance, consider reserving these names by setting them up ahead of the rollout. You can also give these teams structure by setting up the related named channels.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Loryan Strant, an Office Apps and Services MVP from Australia, discusses examples of how Teams has helped companies work better together. His first example was the Regional Council in Victoria, Australia. They have 1,200 users and lots of paper files back to the 1990s. They were already using SharePoint and Skype for Business. He picked a couple of scenarios that he thought would work and a couple that would not work. He wanted to learn more about the ones he thought wouldn’t work. Interestingly, the oppressor was not the IT departments, it was the users themselves. They didn’t know how to fix the problem.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>When they were out in the field and needed to ask a question, they would call, get voice mail, and then hang up (thinking they can ask the question later). The Teams mobile app was a great solution for this. They could send question through with an @mention and be notified when a response is sent.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>For community events they managed, these could be turned into channels. Year-after-year, they can go back and look at the conversations, files, and other pinned content to plan and execute the event based on the historical data. &nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>The amount of work they had to do decreased and the amount of information they had available increased.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>For customer service, they started using @mentions in a channel almost like you might use a pager to get help at the front desk for a customer. By the way, in Teams @mentions can be used for a team, channel, and individual.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>There is a free <A href="#" target="_blank">QnA Maker bot</A> available for Teams. Loryan spent a few hours writing code, adding questions and answers specific to the organization. Team members ask the Q&amp;A bot questions and get the answers needed, sometimes the answer is in the form of transferring a call to the person that can help.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Karuana goes on to discuss a Microsoft 365 task and project management app called Planner. With this app you can create planning boards. Each board is structured in a Kan Ban column type structure with named buckets for organizing tasks. Tasks can have subtasks – a checklist, attached files, and more. Planner can also be pinned within a channel from the Tab Gallery. Getting usage of Teams is more than just conversations and meetings. If you take a look at the Tab Gallery, there are several tab areas you select, configure and pin them for collaboration. Things like a OneNote notebook, a pinned Excel Workbook, a Wiki, a SharePoint Site list or another SharePoint Site document library.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>She describes a user scenario based around trying to locate a missing banner needed for an event. Instead of emailing someone saying “hey, where is the banner?” or calling and leaving a voice mail message. You can create a task in Planner and assign it to the individual(s). They will get a notification and you can keep track of the task as it progresses.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Karuana likes to create a channel called Social Hub. Using connectors to pull in information from her favorite blogs, favorite RSS feeds, and more. Think of all those notifications that you get by email that you can turn into channel conversation updates instead. You get to choose the frequency of these notifications by configuring the schedule.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>An exciting announcement is made. Vishrut Shukla has built 96 different use case scenarios and 12 industry examples. Highlights of this include a sample industry - airlines. The scenarios are: Irregular Operations, Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul, Delay due to Deicing, Enterprise Reporting, Brand Loyalty, Flight Overbooking, and Yet Another Day. Engage with your Microsoft representative to gain access to these detailed industry specific scenarios.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>A new Custom Office 365 Learning site is available now. This is a site template that has all the Microsoft training materials in one place in a way that you can configure what you will be using. If you have an existing learning portal, you can download this web part and turn on the content as needed.</P> <P>To setup a learning site you will need to run a couple lines of PowerShell code. For this reason you need to be an Office 365 administrator to set this up. You can configure this to host your own custom content.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>The session ends with a call to action.

This makes people spending time&nbsp;and searching the information, and putting too much effort makes them be less productive. Therefore, having a centralized place to communicate and collaborate via team members is crucial for driving success.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;<BR /><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="Gorana_THR1090.jpg" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55660iAB22FEE0D96D222E/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Gorana_THR1090.jpg" alt="Gorana_THR1090.jpg" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>During this session, Gorana with her experience working on adoption process for Microsoft Teams with the business users, gave us some great points how to start and develop great collaboration environment. And everything starts with good planning – not directly into Microsoft Teams, but on the paper. If you create team directly into the app, then Office 365 group will be opened in the background, SharePoint Online team site also will be opened by default, and in the Outlook in the Groups section you will see new group, having the team name appearing on the list. So, you do not want to end up with test groups all around your tenant. Next advice is to decide who will be responsible to create a team, who will manage the team and how the team is going to be organized (channels, external connectors and add-ons). The next step in the adoption process will include: if your teams have same people collaborate on different projects: do not open new team, but open channel – place where all the team members will talk and collaborate on different topics.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="THR1090_FAQ.jpg" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55661i4F7B53C4BEF327F7/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="THR1090_FAQ.jpg" alt="THR1090_FAQ.jpg" /></span>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>The business users have some concerns on how to follow every activity within a team, and that is very easy with the Follow button. When a person follows the channel, then every information posted into that channel will make notification on the left side of the app, so you cannot miss anything. Next most frequently question is: Should they use Skype for Business Online or Microsoft Teams for meetings, and Gorana suggests that the experience working with small and medium businesses, somehow, spontaneously made users transfer to Microsoft Teams since there are the same capabilities as Skype for Business Online and additionally there are more benefits as: meeting and recording into the channel, sharing notes and documents, sharing the app and many more features which make Microsoft Teams center for a project and meeting collaboration. Some of the additional advices which lead to customer satisfaction in using Microsoft Teams is easy enabling and disabling user access, the privacy and sharing is all in the hand of the user, and the integration with the other Office 365 tools make this hub being really a center of everything users need to have in order to be productive, without the need to open multiple tabs or applications.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="THR1090_Additional_Questions.jpg" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55662i49E5289243E89909/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="THR1090_Additional_Questions.jpg" alt="THR1090_Additional_Questions.jpg" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>At the end of the session, Gorana shared some tips which made their customers’ experience great:</P> <UL> <LI>Get tools to support rollout or Teams (Customer Support Kit).</LI> <LI>Create a pilot group – this will be your guidance how should you develop your teams.</LI> <LI>Create On-Boarding space in Microsoft Teams – every new person will be informed here about the service, teams, collaboration processes.</LI> <LI>Educate your employees – people tend to avoid what they do not know – give them knowledge what are the benefits of this great service.</LI> <LI>Enrich the teams with add-ons – give your people as much information as you can, so they can always come on this place, this team and this channel to find everything they need.</LI> <LI>Install the application on app your devices so you can stay always connected.</LI> </UL> <P>Why Gorana’s experience was so great during delivering the Microsoft Teams to SMBs? Because with this good organization process of adoption, the customers realized and gave feedback that with usage of this application they really have everything on one place, the service is improving and updating constantly giving the users best experience, saves time and effort in collaboration process and the adoption stages are very easy and fast.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Speaker: <A href="#" target="_blank">Gorana Konevska Jankoska</A></P> <P>Blogger: <A href="#" target="_blank">Vladimir Meloski</A></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> Fri, 05 Oct 2018 21:35:32 GMT https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/thr1090-our-great-experience-on-delivering-microsoft-teams-to/ba-p/267667 Vladimir Meloski 2018-10-05T21:35:32Z Ignite Live Blog - BRK2189: Success with Teams Customer Panel – Best practices for deployments https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/ignite-live-blog-brk2189-success-with-teams-customer-panel-best/ba-p/267573 <P>If your organization is moving to Teams soon (or already has), <A href="#" target="_blank">this session</A> can help you find success with end user adoption and usage.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>At the start of the session, a 9-person panel spanning many industries around the world were asked, why did you choose to move to Teams? I thought the answers would all be similar, focused around communication or collaboration. Wow, was I wrong!</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Jacob Lindgren explained that his colleagues had thousands and thousands of emails and this was something he wanted to change. Carol Roberts described the new hire sprawl within her organization and that they didn’t know what to turn to, too many tools. Teams solved for that – to have one tool.</P> <P>When asked how Teams is improving collaboration? A panelist said it’s the one place users don’t feel lost. It’s the first platform that they get good file sharing for now. They have 8,000 1-to-1 chats per day.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>8,000 1-to-1 chats per day! &nbsp;I started thinking about this and the thousands of emails mentioned earlier. If thousands of daily email messages within an organization can be turned into Team channel conversations and private chats (1-to-1 and 1-to-many), the return on investment can be tremendous in so many ways:</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>To start, it can help with productivity. Team members share information quickly, ask questions and get answers quickly. They can be notified in many ways with team, channel and individual @ mentions. Have visibility to entire conversations as they are persistent, this means less time spent triaging their email inboxes and performing email cleanup/organization.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Knowledge sharing and searching are simplified. Tribal knowledge is shared in a space that team members and guests have access to over time and can easily search for key words topics within all Teams and channels they are a part of. &nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>For those administering Teams and Office 365 it means less mail to manage, simplified methods for archiving teams and taking teams offline.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>When the panelists were asked about scenarios or examples that help people adopt the tool, Bernd Diel said they introduced features in a small way, like chat. Cashiers and warehouse staff started using audio calling like a walkie-talkie to check stock inventory. When Microsoft looked at the call data they thought something was wrong because it was used in such a short calling type of a way. Something they didn’t think was possible. &nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>As the panel chat wrapped up, advice for other companies transferring current workloads to Teams were shared. Here are the key takeaways:</P> <UL> <LI>Plan but don’t over plan.</LI> <LI>The speed of change must always be slower than the speed of adoption.</LI> <LI>Don’t wait too long. Users will find other tools and go around IT.</LI> <LI>Collaborate – this is a whole new level of really understanding who you are working with in an organization and it really opens up who you are working with.</LI> <LI>Making sure your users understand the value. How does this impact my productivity? How does it make my day to day better? Progress, not perfection. Simplifying the experience for the user so that its intuitive, just like picking up the phone to make a call.</LI> <LI>If you can encourage your users to use it on the mobile app it becomes sticky and gets them to adopt it much faster.</LI> </UL> <P>Attendees had several questions for the panel. Here are the highlights:</P> <P>Question: Do any of you use Yammer? What to use when?&nbsp;</P> <P>Answer: Yes, we do. Yammer is the first took we introduced to the company and then later we introduced Teams. We made a 2-minute video to explain the outer loop - Yammer - to ask a question and get feedback, when in Teams have a faster conversation. Really it depends on how you want to work. Some colleagues need more guidance.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Question: What are some of the creative ways you have used Teams?</P> <P>Answer: Memeatropolis -we have lots of colleagues in their 20s and the memes were out of control. We created a space where the happy birthdays go, the fun responses and the noise is in one area. That team has 75 to 80 people.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Question: For anyone that was on-prep, did Exchange cause any issues or slow you down.</P> <P>Answer: Exchange is the last tool we are moving to the cloud. We should have started with Exchange.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Question: Do any of you have use cases for external communications?</P> <P>Answer: We are open federation as well.

These fall into: Room Systems, Phones, and Peripherals.</P> <P>&nbsp;<span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="1.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55638i0BB15A1B50CC2C78/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="1.png" alt="1.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Irena also announced a new hardware certification the certification is called Certified for Microsoft Teams.&nbsp; This new accreditation which allows for all the familiar items expected with Skype for Business certification, however now ensures that the hardware will work seamlessly and fully integrated into the Microsoft Teams solution.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="2.png" style="width: 251px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55639iB1ADB271B24597F1/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="2.png" alt="2.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>The Microsoft team has also put together a recommended shopping list depending on user requirement criteria.

It enables the team members ability to communicate differently (collaboration on document, scheduling and recording the meetings and many more assets). It helps people to get their work done from one place, so there is no need to open multiple windows or application – everything is simple and you have everything on one place. The wonderful thing is that everything is customizable and suits all different users’ needs. From the point of security, Microsoft Teams is built on top of Office 365, so it has the same security features as Office 365 - it is secured on the same way as Office 365.</P> <P>&nbsp;&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="karuana2.jpg" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55585iC2F7DF19844AFE7D/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="karuana2.jpg" alt="karuana2.jpg" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Modernizing the core scenarios</STRONG></P> <P>There are a couple of core scenarios, but it this session Karuana led us through the Project Management, because every one of us, no matter in which department or what kind of company/institution we work, we always have tasks, we always have projects which need to be accomplished, we always collaborate with other people.</P> <P>People spend so much time searching some document, or they send emails with large attachments and at the end they lose time to find the necessary information because they forget where it is stored. There is no need for sending files via email, there are Microsoft cloud storages as OneDrive and SharePoint Online, and they can really bring great benefits to the teams.</P> <P>The following slide shows the great things you can do when you move into Microsoft Teams. You do not need to do it all at once, it can be done in stages. But, at the end all of the users should definitely move every task and project into Teams. This hub enables team members to be updated with every information and conversation. It is great place for onboarding (it eliminates the need to resend a lot of information to new team members via email). It enables collaboration on a document (because the docs are stored in SharePoint Online), creating forms, working and collaborating on a project and managing tasks with Microsoft Planner.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="modern management.jpg" style="width: 945px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55587iF25C4E1602DB5F91/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="modern management.jpg" alt="modern management.jpg" /></span></P> <P>There are 3 versions of Teams: desktop version, web version and mobile version with very small differences, so we can all stay connected with our teams and projects.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Karuana advices to every organization to have Teamwork Champion Program. When you create a team you got general channel where you can talk for general topics, a file tab to store the document and WiKi which can be used for many purposes (example: storing some reference info for everyone in the team). This is great especially for new team members.</P> <P>Another great thing is that there is capability in Teams to import SharePoint Online team site. With this capability when you use the SharePoint Online team site attached to your Team then your team members will get information plus. You can customize it the way you need (for an example attach calendar for project meetings as a web part). You can also create a news article or status reports (customizable with all of the columns, pictures and information you want to show as PowerPoint presentation). Now, this is great for people who do not use SharePoint Online: there is SharePoint Online News connector, so every time there is a change into the site which is connected to the team, a team in Microsoft Teams will get an update information into the channel where the connector was added.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="sp news.jpg" style="width: 594px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55588i45E5709F8C3A1222/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="sp news.jpg" alt="sp news.jpg" /></span></P> <P>Another cool feature is creating a meeting into a channel. If your team is growing and you are adding people into your team, you do not have to worry that they have information about the meeting. Every one which is a part of your Team in Microsoft Teams will get invitation and can join the meeting or view the recording.</P> <P>Next thing that is very useful for team work is the connection between Microsoft Teams and Microsoft Planner. There are many places where you can create and store tasks, but when they are connected with your center of communication and collaboration-Microsoft Teams, it is win-win combination. Creating projects, plans and assigning tasks to the team members in Microsoft Planner is fantastic with Microsoft Planner. And the capability to implement that plan with your Team, into your channel, will boost the team productivity in the process of collaboration.</P> <P>All the items Karuana teaches during the session are available to Custom Learning for Office 365 site.</P> <P><A href="#" target="_blank">https://support.office.com/en-us/office-training-center</A> &nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;&nbsp;</P> <P>If you want access for more information on Office 365 and scenarios, Karuana strongly advices you to sign up and access all the benefits and trainings for Office 365 Champions Program:<span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="karuana1.jpg" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55589i15C3B9AC5600633C/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="karuana1.jpg" alt="karuana1.jpg" /></span></P> <P><A href="#" target="_blank">View the Session Recording</A></P> <P>Speaker: <A href="https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/user/v2/viewprofilepage/user-id/27835" target="_blank">Karuana Gatimu</A></P> <P>Blogger: <A href="#" target="_blank">Gorana Konevska Jankoska</A></P> Thu, 11 Oct 2018 18:45:02 GMT https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/thr2063-learn-about-modern-project-management-with-planner/ba-p/267350 Gorana Konevska Jankoska 2018-10-11T18:45:02Z Ignite Live Blog - BRK3138 - Managing Client Deployments and Updates for Microsoft Teams (German) https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/ignite-live-blog-brk3138-managing-client-deployments-and-updates/ba-p/267353 <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Ignite2018_BRK3138_Head.jpg" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55058i17DD1F9C29019F2C/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Ignite2018_BRK3138_Head.jpg" alt="Ignite2018_BRK3138_Head.jpg" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>In einem bis auf den letzten Stuhl gefüllten Raum präsentierte Ori Kashi sowohl Basics als auch Neuigkeiten zum Microsoft Teams Client in Bezug auf Updates und deren Verwaltung.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Client Optionen</STRONG></P> <P>IT Administratoren müssen die verschiedenen Clients von Desktop über Mobile bis hin zum Webclient via Policies über das Microsoft Teams und Skype for Business Admin Center oder via Powershell händeln.</P> <P>Der Microsoft Teams Desktop Client ist eine MSI Installation pro User, die aktuell noch als separate (.exe) Installation neben der Office Installation durchgeführt wird. In Zukunft wird der Microsoft Teams Client mit der Office Installation direkt mitinstalliert und ist in x86/x64 für Windows 7 aufwärts, OSX 10.11 aufwärts, verfügbar. Die X64 Version wird zur Nutzung empfohlen. Die Installation des Desktopclients unterstützt Gruppenrichtlinien, den System Center Konfigurations Manager oder diverse 3rd Party Deployment Werkzeuge. Aktuell gibt es noch keine Möglichkeit, den Client per Gruppenrichtlinien oder mit der Registry zu konfigurieren.</P> <P>Die mobile Microsoft Teams App für iOS und Android kann per Policies konfiguriert und mit MDM Werkzeugen, wie Intune, verteilt werden. Die Nutzer können den Client natürlich auch per Download aus dem Google Play oder Apple App Store runterladen.</P> <P>Der Webclient ist ohne Installation verfügbar und wird automatisch in der höchsten Frequenz im Vergleich zu den anderen Clients mit Updates versorgt. Dennoch sind die Funktionen und Werkzeuge im Webclient eingeschränkt.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Microsoft Desktop Client</STRONG></P> <P>Wenn Ihre Nutzer den Desktop Client nutzen, nutzen sie den Client mit der besten Nutzererfahrung. Dieser Client bekommt Updates in einer hohen Frequenz und werden automatisch installiert. Die Installation der Updates erfolgt während des Login-Prozesses bevor der Nutzer eingeloggt wird. Wenn die Installation der Updates erfolgt, startet der Client neu und der Nutzer wird per Notifikation informiert. Dies erlaubt es dem Nutzer Funktionen wie Ton und Video mit hoher Qualität zu nutzen oder neue Funktionen, wie die Aufnahme von Meetings zu nutzen.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Die Installationspfade/Verzeichnisse lauten wie folgt:</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Die Microsoft Teams Applikation wird in diesen Verzeichnissen installiert:</P> <UL> <LI>%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Teams</LI> <LI>%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\TeamsMeetingsAddin</LI> <LI>%AppData%\Microsoft\Teams</LI> </UL> <P>Das Verzeichnis für Updates lautet hingegen:</P> <UL> <LI>%LocalAppData%\SquirrelTemp</LI> </UL> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Wenn der Teams Client deinstalliert werden soll, kann man dies über den klassischen Weg tun. Microsoft hat, um alle Reste zu beseitigen ein Löschskript zur Verfügung: <SPAN><A href="#" target="_blank">https://aka.ms/AA2jisb</A>. </SPAN>Es wird empfohlen dann diesen Ordner zu löschen: %localappdata%\Microsoft\Teams .</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Update Management</STRONG></P> <P>Wenn ihr ein Update Management für Microsoft Teams plan, habt ihr einige Herausforderungen:</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK3138_1.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55590i614A6679130F83CB/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="BRK3138_1.png" alt="BRK3138_1.png" /></span>&nbsp;</P> <P>Der Microsoft Teams Client ist immer auf dem aktuellsten Stand, um die optimalste Nutzung zu ermöglichen. Dieser Service ist ein Rundumservice für IT Administratoren und Nutzer im Hinblick auf Security, Performance und Funktionserweiterungen durch Updates. Wenn der Microsoft Teams Client eine zu alte Version besitzt, dann wird dieser automatisch geupdated, wenn der Nutzer sich einloggen will und so im Login Prozess befindet. Die Version wird alle 15 Minuten geprüft. Wenn die Updates installiert wurden und der Client neugestartet ist, dann wird der Nutzer per Benachrichtigung informiert, so dass der Teams Client wieder genutzt werden kann.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Verbesserte Transparenz der Freigabe</STRONG></P> <P>In den Bestrebungen zu immer mehr Transparenz für IT Administratoren, die sich um den Microsoft Teams Client kümmern, wird es nun mehr Informationen im Microsoft Teams &amp; Skype for Business Admin Center geben.</P> <P>Ein Teil dieser neuen Informationen sind die Veröffentlichung von Release Notes für die verschiedenen Clients und deren verschiedenen Versionen direkt über das Dashboard des Admin Centers:</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Sie können in der neuen Liste der Release Notes auch ein Update auswählen und über einen Klick auf diese Release Note erhalten Sie noch detaillierten Informationen:</P> <P>&nbsp;<span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK3138_2.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55591iF4245B31204E0D85/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="BRK3138_2.png" alt="BRK3138_2.png" /></span></P> <P>Sie erhalten über die Detailansicht, welche neuen Funktionen verfügbar werden, welche Bugs behoben wurden und erhalten sogar Screenshots, um Änderungen der Benutzeroberfläche genauer identifizieren zu können.</P> <P>&nbsp;<span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK3138_3.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55592i78DFAF96E81FE5AE/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="BRK3138_3.png" alt="BRK3138_3.png" /></span></P> <P>Ebenfalls erhalten IT Administratoren genauere Informationen über wie bestimmte Funktionen administriert werden können und Zugang zu externen Ressourcen, so dass man nicht extra danach in der Dokumentation suchen muss.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK3138_4.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55593i0839D8362056F256/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="BRK3138_4.png" alt="BRK3138_4.png" /></span><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK3138_5.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55594i5FA76A4369DA4994/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="BRK3138_5.png" alt="BRK3138_5.png" /></span>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Was kommt als Nächstes?</STRONG></P> <P>In diesem Quartal werden noch mehr Optionen für die Microsoft Teams Clients für IT Administratoren zur Verfügung gestellt. Diese ermöglichen eine Verwaltung der Updates, so dass Unternehmen mehr Kontrolle über die Updates des Microsoft Teams Clients erhalten und wann dieses installiert wird. Diese neuen Optionen erlauben die Definition von Stages/Wellen und Office Hours, so dass der Client nur außerhalb der Geschäftszeiten sein Update erhält.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Fazit</STRONG></P> <P>Mit dem Microsoft Teams Client erhalten die Nutzer automatisch die neusten Updates zu jederzeit. Somit bekommen sie alle Sicherheits- und auch Funktionsupdates, um mit Microsoft Teams optimal inklusive der neusten Funktionen, wie die Aufnahme von Meetings, nutzen zu können. Neben mehr Informationen im Microsoft Teams und Skype for Business Admin Center erhalten IT Administratoren in Zukunft die Möglichkeit den Zeitpunkt der Installation von Updates besser zu bestimmen und somit auch mehr Kontrolle über den Client.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Sprecher:&nbsp; Ori Kashi</STRONG></P> <P>&nbsp;<span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK3138_6.png" style="width: 128px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55595iE785C8A7B50B5F1B/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="BRK3138_6.png" alt="BRK3138_6.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Principal PM Manager</P> <P>Ori ist seit 2011 bei Microsoft und leitet derzeit das Team, das die Verwaltung von Microsoft Teams und Skype for Business vorantreibt.

Don't sweat it, Srividhya Chandrasekaran broke down the wall in her session on connecting Microsoft Teams to 3rd-party meeting room devices with Cloud Video Interop (CVI).</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>First, the partners:</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <UL> <LI>Polycom (available now)</LI> <LI>Pexip (announced, available October 19th, 2018)</LI> <LI>Blue Jeans (announced, available October 31st, 2018)</LI> </UL> <P>Here's a quick photo taken during the session with Office Lens to show an example of the Polycom solution:<span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="Teams CVI Example.jpg" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55446i5D2D8C083EC66414/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Teams CVI Example.jpg" alt="Teams CVI Example.jpg" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>When looking at Microsoft Teams for conferencing, one of the major blockers has and is that Video TeleConference (VTC) systems and rooms are expensive to upgrade. Microsoft's release of CVI solves this issue by providing a way for 3rd-party meeting rooms to join Microsoft Teams meetings. One thing to clarify, this solves the issue of having a 3rd-party VTC join a Teams meeting. This DOES NOT enable a Teams client to join a 3rd-party MCU.&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>In addition to the expense of upgrading VTC's, some other challenges that were pointed out were:</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <UL> <LI>How do you schedule the meeting? (mechanisms, plug-ins, etc.)</LI> <LI>The organizer doesn't (and shouldn't have to) know which endpoints are joining a meeting</LI> <LI>VTC's usually don't have a keyboard which makes it hard to type SIP URI's</LI> <LI>Content sharing across VTC's can be a challenge</LI> </UL> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Before you get started, it is important to consider the business impacts to your VTC's. If you only have a small handful of rooms, you may be better off simply upgrading to a Microsoft Teams native solution. <SPAN>Srividhya</SPAN> brought up many great Key Business Considerations during her talk such as:</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <UL> <LI>Do you have a 3rd party call controller in your organization?</LI> <LI>Do you plan on keeping your current call controller along side Microsoft Teams?</LI> <LI>Are you on a hosted video infrastructure or do you run your own?</LI> <LI>Are you planning to deploy Teams Room Systems, and if so, when?</LI> <LI>Do you have external companies joining your Teams meetings?</LI> </UL> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>After reviewing the business cases and deciding to move forward with CVI, it's important to know how it works. From <SPAN>Srividhya</SPAN>'s presentation, here is a quick reference architecture:<span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="CVI Reference Arch.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55445i9656FD3D4CCC8A2A/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="CVI Reference Arch.png" alt="CVI Reference Arch.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>A key takeaway is that the CVI providers are using a Teams Interop Bot to connect to the Microsoft Teams Infrastructure. This just goes to show how Bot's are going to impact our future with Microsoft Teams.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>At the end, we were given a guide for how to get started with CVI:<span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="CVI Plan.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55444i47969742B930538A/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="CVI Plan.png" alt="CVI Plan.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>With CVI, you get the security of knowing that the solutions are certified and supported by Microsoft because they were co-engineered with Microsoft. They are Enterprise Ready with HD Video (1080p) and Content Sharing via Video Based Screen Sharing (VBSS). CVI includes support for H.323 and SIP and is a gateway design instead of the traditional Virtual Meeting Room (VMR) type of solution. Lastly, because of the way it is architected (see the reference architecture above), it scales for the Cloud.&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><A href="#" target="_blank">Here's a quick link to the session on the Ignite website.</A></P> Thu, 04 Oct 2018 13:17:37 GMT https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/brk3122-connecting-microsoft-teams-to-3rd-party-meeting-room/ba-p/263226 Adam Ball 2018-10-04T13:17:37Z Ignite Live Blog: BRK2159 What's new in Microsoft Teams, The hub for teamwork https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/ignite-live-blog-brk2159-what-s-new-in-microsoft-teams-the-hub/ba-p/266780 <P>At this Breakout Session, Teamwork is the best word to describe what is a way to be more effective in a daily basis.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="1.jpg" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55470i1345638C52ADFC4E/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="1.jpg" alt="1.jpg" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Microsoft Teams is the hub for teamwork for all.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>The momentum was that now have:</P> <UL> <LI>329000 Organization use Teams</LI> <LI>87 of Fortune 100 use Teams</LI> <LI>44 Languages are supported in Teams</LI> <LI>54 costumers have more than 10000 active users</LI> </UL> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Microsoft Teams was made to help organizations that in present work has a Team inside a Team, that's why you can have a way to virtually be with your team to do conversations, share content, edit, call and be more productive in a central place everywhere.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>In this session we learned about:</P> <UL> <LI>Bring people to work together</LI> <LI>Have conversations about a theme</LI> <LI>Present content in real-time using also your phone</LI> <LI>Have video calls</LI> <LI>Do meetings</LI> <LI>Interoperations with many kinds of devices</LI> <LI>And many more, depending on how creative you can be</LI> </UL> <P>In Teams, you have Outlook, SharePoint, Yammer, Office Apps and many more applications.

Crestron room portfolio includes their existing room integration options.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>A new Microsoft Teams certification website for direct purchasing – peace of mind for finding the right certified solution for your business - <SPAN><A href="#" target="_blank">http://www.office.com/teamsdevice</A></SPAN>.<span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="Blog02.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55406i2D9A8A18CDFCBA99/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Blog02.png" alt="Blog02.png" /></span>Website incorporates the ability to customize your requirements by brand, room size etc. The purchase can be completed via the website or through your preferred channel partners.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Segway to peripherals, notification and invocation with Teams via new intelligent button. This button will light up when you have a missed call, scheduled meeting and in the future provide Cortana voice skills. This will be available across mobile and PC endpoints.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Next up mobile dock from Plantronics (Elara 60 portfolio), incorporates Teams button. Geared toward mobile-first workers, this transforms your mobile device into a desktop companion – wireless charging, headset and hard buttons that will drive the Teams mobile experience via Bluetooth HID control.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="Blog03.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55408i7CE799DA45F9B503/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Blog03.png" alt="Blog03.png" /></span></P> <P>Conference room phones, fantastic audio in the conference room via the native Teams IP Phone application.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Demo of Teams native IP Phones, one-touch to join a scheduled meeting – integrated with Teams cloud-hosted capabilities. Lots of excitement around Plantronics Mobile Dock with Qi wireless charger, adjustable stand for great video levelling, full dial-pad etc. Teams-edition puck, from Jabra, flashing Teams light is invoked by an inbound call. Jabra fully wireless earbuds were shown next – these met Microsoft’s Teams high quality audio bar.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Meeting room trends, video usage is growing due to cost of video room systems dropping substantially, shift toward software-based room systems that offer a native experience, this is the only way to connect to Teams meetings (unless you leverage CVI solutions from partners). The promise of cloud-based capabilities that will truly make meetings more intelligent – think cloud recording, incorporating transcription and persistence within project Microsoft Teams channels.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="Blog04.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55410i5F55DD571FCE77E8/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Blog04.png" alt="Blog04.png" /></span></P> <P>Cloud video interop solutions from Polycom, Pexip and Blue Jeans for existing customers. Reference to Polycom being the provider for both Skype for Business Online and now Teams support GA as of 24<SUP>th</SUP> September.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>More announcements, Logitech’s Rally System now includes two speakers and up to 7 satellite microphones. Shure and Sennheiser sound tiles certifications underway so table mics can be a thing of the past – pickup and clarity is great and is already in use by Satya and executive team within Microsoft.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Coming soon for both Teams IP Phones and SRS – a Microsoft Teams device management portal, including inventory management, zero-touch enrollment, CA enforcement, software update, config management and health monitoring – all via an Android-based Intune agent. This is awesome!</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="Blog05.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55411i00D78D63BE9B1C81/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Blog05.png" alt="Blog05.png" /></span></P> <P>Next up Matt Hempey from MSIT is providing his experience with SRS, focus on clutter-free deployment (ceiling mics and Crestron controller). The goal at Microsoft is to move all rooms above focus rooms, so 7500 rooms to SRS within 18 months -&nbsp;2500 will be done by end of CY18 which is a big ask for devices team. MSIT is a quarter of the way through this and achieved this within 2 years. Satisfaction rates jumping up considerably since SRS deployment.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Standard conference room configuration consists of Logitech dock and Polycom Trio. Larger rooms with Crestron SRS system. Exec conference room with dual screen, Logitech dock and Rally camera. Satya’s board room is a Lenovo with Polycom Eagle Eye Director II camera – the latter with two cameras tracking all folks within the room.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Shipping in October, the new proximity-based capability. Bring your own meeting via PC or Mobile – new join via room from Teams desktop/mobile client. Bluetooth beacon technology being leveraged for pairing capabilities Also the ability to “find a room” via directory of SRS-enabled rooms. This will then “nudge” the room system to accept joining the call from the touch controller. This is a killer feature met with an applause from the room!</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Couple more developments, Windows Collab Displays, new category multi-touch ink-enabled displays with speaker/mics and IoT sensors. Will be supported by Microsoft Teams room systems in H1CY19. Bringing inking capabilities to existing SRS solutions – nice!</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Surface Hub updates released the support Teams meetings, SurfaceHub 2S will incorporate the same experience. SRS v1 systems will be out of support in October, upgrade paths from Crestron (but only for RL2 systems). Hardware trade-in program for SMART SRS systems.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Call out for non-certified devices, they need to integrate with Teams meetings via Cloud Video Interop. Call out to Polycom, work is underway to provide an upgrade path for Trio customers with Visual+ kits.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Roadmaps updates below:</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="Blog06.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55412i34FCEAB20D323B1E/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Blog06.png" alt="Blog06.png" /></span></P> <P>Some very exciting functionality being planned!</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>The session then wrapped up with some Q&amp;A and folks flocked to get their hands on some certified audio devices!</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> Wed, 03 Oct 2018 19:37:17 GMT https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/ignite-live-blog-brk3168-intelligent-communications-across/ba-p/266444 Adam Jacobs 2018-10-03T19:37:17Z Ignite Live Blog: BRK3135 Learn more about security and compliance for Microsoft Teams(Dutch) https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/ignite-live-blog-brk3135-learn-more-about-security-and/ba-p/265618 <P>Bij deze Breakout sessie was Compliance&nbsp;een goed&nbsp;woord om te beschrijven hoe je effectief kan zijn op een dagelijkse basis.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><SPAN class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline"><SPAN class="lia-message-image-wrapper lia-message-image-actions-narrow lia-message-image-actions-below"><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="BRK3135_1.jpg" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/54944i0B29E116D0B612C1/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="BRK3135_1.jpg" alt="BRK3135_1.jpg" /></span></SPAN></SPAN></P> <P>Microsoft Teams is veilig binnen je Organisatie</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Het Momentum wat er nu is:</P> <UL> <LI>Security&nbsp;geïmplementeerd&nbsp;in Teams</LI> <LI>Compliance</LI> <LI>Privacy</LI> <LI>Controls</LI> <LI>Certificaten</LI> </UL> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Microsoft Teams is gemaakt om organisaties te helpen met het productiever kunnen samenwerken binnen een team van mensen.

key business scenarios &amp; success metrics, driving awareness and elevating skills across your user community.</SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><SPAN><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="k1.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55380i71D8618FFD4556F7/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="k1.png" alt="k1.png" /></span></SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Her focus&nbsp; was largely around influencing user behavior. How can you make users more open to Teams? What will get them excited to use its functionality instead of persistently sticking to Skype for Business and email?</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="k2.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55379i33BC328B5DD3A041/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="k2.png" alt="k2.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Karuana started off by going over the core advantages that come with adopting Microsoft Teams. Those included:</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <UL> <LI><STRONG>Communicate - </STRONG>through chat, meetings and calls.</LI> <LI><STRONG>Collaborate - </STRONG>with integrated Office 365 apps.</LI> <LI><STRONG>Customize and extend - </STRONG>with 3<SUP>rd</SUP> party apps, processes and devices.</LI> <LI><STRONG>Work with confidence - </STRONG>thanks to enterprise-level security, compliance and manageability.</LI> </UL> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Even more than those points above, though, Karuana spoke on how Teams solves the issue of the fragmented collaboration experience. Instead of having to jump between tons of different web browser tabs and devices to get your work done, Teams allows you to consolidate your workflow and stay more focused for longer periods of time. All of that said, how can you ensure that your adoption is successful?</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="ka.jpg" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55384iF46EE35E05D52702/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="ka.jpg" alt="ka.jpg" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Karuana emphasized that adoption is all about relationship management. Everything needs to be working from a technical standpoint, but what good is that if users don’t feel supported during the process?</P> <P><BR /><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="k3.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55377i629D202E1F67FD71/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="k3.png" alt="k3.png" /></span>&nbsp;&nbsp;</P> <P>Microsoft suggests engaging with them early for assistance. Every Office 365 subscription comes with access to a fast track team that can help get the process moving. If it’s a more complicated adoption, Microsoft can help you find reputable partners in your area.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Karuana then laid out the five steps of a service adoption framework:</P> <P>&nbsp;&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>1. Assemble Your Team</STRONG></P> <P>Tap into the technical and business change agents. Recruit multi-disciplinary teams of executive sponsors, technical talent, core stakeholders, change agents and champions</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>2.

Next, Wictor generated a Teams app with the Teams Yeoman generator (source is in the&nbsp;<EM>teams</EM> folder).</P> <P>&nbsp;<span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="2018-09-27_13-34-38.png" style="width: 233px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/54795i45DC3B3450D47EB2/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="2018-09-27_13-34-38.png" alt="2018-09-27_13-34-38.png" /></span></P> <P>Next, he updated the&nbsp;<A href="#" target="_blank"><EM>manifest.json</EM> file in the&nbsp;<EM>/teams/src/manifest/&nbsp;</EM></A>folder to include the unique Id and path of the SPFx web part (note that the URL will change when this capability goes GA):</P> <PRE> "configurableTabs": [ { "configurationUrl": "https://spoppe-a.akamaihd.net/files/sp-client-master_20180727.004/sp-teams-tab/sp-teams-tab.html?dest=/_layouts/15/webpart.aspx?openPropertyPane=true&amp;teams&amp;componentId=374bc334-0a1f-4cbc-82a6-4d87f71e6976", "canUpdateConfiguration": true, "scopes": [ "team" ] } ],</PRE> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Wictor was then able to build and deploy the same app as:</P> <OL> <LI>A web part in SharePoint, and</LI> <LI>An app in Teams.&nbsp;</LI> </OL> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H3>Reacting to the&nbsp;app context at runtime</H3> <P>In the main app code, Wictor wrote a quick method to check if the user context was in Microsoft Teams:</P> <PRE>private isInTeams(): boolean { return (&lt;any&gt;this.context.pageContext).teams !== undefined; }</PRE> <P>He then used this throughout the app code,&nbsp;performing some different actions at runtime if a Teams context was detected:</P> <PRE>if (this.isInTeams()) { // if we're in Teams we already know the channel channel = (&lt;any&gt;this.context.pageContext).teams.channelId; } else { // If we're not in Teams then use the channel submitted in the action channel = (&lt;any&gt;submitAction.data).channel; } </PRE> <H2>&nbsp;</H2> <H2>Takeaways</H2> <P>This is the first step in a very important journey for developers on the Office 365 ecosystem, including SharePoint and Teams but eventually extending to the rest of Office.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>With cross-pollination between SharePoint and Teams developer toolchains, developers can&nbsp;create great user experiences&nbsp;built on the Microsoft Graph and deploy them as SharePoint SPFx web parts and Microsoft Teams apps (tabs) from a single codebase.&nbsp; And these applications are context-aware, providing developers even more opportunities to delight end users by incorporating unique app context into the user experience.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H2>Resources &amp;

encrypted-media"></IFRAME></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Planning&nbsp;</STRONG></P> <P><SPAN>Disaster planning requires a team of people to get together who can visualize&nbsp;the many possibilities that occur during a disaster. The team needs&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>comprise&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>of people across the different services, who between them, have knowledge of all services, infrastructure and activities. They will need to envision ideas and in their planning, create processes that can be refined though feedback and preparedness exercises.&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>A Microsoft Team is used for the members to collaborate on procedures and policies, bringing through from ideation, to actionable steps.&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Simulation&nbsp;</STRONG></P> <P><SPAN>The second scenario is enacting the procedures in a disaster simulation. A Microsoft Team has been formed to capture the conversations and activities during the exercise. As you can imagine in a disaster, it may be that team members are unable to perform their role. They themselves may be victims of the disaster. Or the team may need to grow to cope with a higher than anticipated demand for coordination and action. You can quick add members to a Microsoft Team, from your desktop and even from a mobile in the field, to scale the members who will assist with the disaster effort. It’s incredibly important to have everyone working and communicating together and be able to quickly adapt as needs are identified and changed.&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>One of the greatest needs during a disaster is that everyone on the recovery team has the ability to maintain a high level of situational awareness. They each have a role to play and focus on. But knowing what is happening across the team can i</SPAN><SPAN>nform better decisions for resource assignment. In a disaster, this in turn can&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>save more lives and ensure m</SPAN><SPAN>ore</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;injured are cared for.&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>A</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;combination of events can create unexpected outcomes.&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>Microsoft Teams provide</SPAN><SPAN>s</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;focus for a team</SPAN><SPAN>. It can be organised to reflect</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;different roles and responsibilties, while also providing visibility across&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>different activities</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;and workstreams. Imagine a situation where Emergency Response Units have been deployed to a city block to carefully and quickly find people trapped in and under damaged buildings. During the course of a few hours, it was discovered that an event was on that day that meant most people in the city block were actually two blocks away, attending a large event. The Response Units need to be shifted two blocks over and their tools and resources moved too.&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>The information was discovered through a conversation from a frontline support worker talking with a local who was rescued, who provided more unexpected information. The frontline support worker for the Disaster Recovery Team can share that conversation quickly with the appropriate group within the team, to adapt and make the necessary changes.&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>The Microsoft Team used for Disaster Recovery can be structured using channels. Channels provide a place for a group of people in the team to focus their conversations, documentation, activities and information streams. Channels are also open within the team to any other team member</SPAN><SPAN>. This means a team member&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>c</SPAN><SPAN>an&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>visit</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;any channel in the team</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;and engage in conversations.&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>For example, a</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;channel for Fire and Police could mention someone from Recovery Coordination in conversation. They will receive a notification of the message and be able to&nbsp; read previous replies and surrounding conversations. This enables people to quickly get up to speed with the situation, because all conversations and activities are focused using channels.&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>A c</SPAN><SPAN>hannel</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;can be used to&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>focus high priority announcements and responses. T</SPAN><SPAN>eam members</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;can subscribe to the channel and receive those notifications, reading important messages that give the whole team a high level of situational awareness.&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>To make the message highly visible, mark with high importance, use a subject and at-mention the ‘High Priority’ channel.&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>Documents can be uploaded to the Files tab. But what really gives the document context is the conversation. When you attach a document to a conversation, the conversation stays with the document. When conversations and documents are together, important and timely content is easy to find. If a document is crucial to team operations and everyone needs to see it, it can be pinned as a tab in the channel. A spreadsheet may have been the document used to list the people that were assisted in an emergency. Pinning the spreadsheet makes it very easy to find and update.&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Running the disaster response exercise&nbsp;</STRONG></P> <P><SPAN>Practicing the procedures in a simulated emergency will allow the team to refine the processes and envision other scenarios and needs that may not have been conceived yet.&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><EM>Focus high priority conversations in a channel&nbsp;</EM></P> <P><SPAN>Our demo persona Alan start’s the disaster response exercise in the Microsoft Team set up to practice the exercise, by posting a new message in the High Priority channel, advising of a disaster.&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>He at-mentions the entire channel. Everyone can read it and reply or like to signal they have read it.&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>But also, Alan at-mentions other specific channels within the Microsoft Team, to start the procedures of specific roles and groups within the team. He has shared the live location of the emergency. Sharing links to other resources or sources will provide further information.&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><EM>Assign tasks and goals within the channel&nbsp;</EM></P> <P><SPAN>Alan visits each channel in the team to list the bullet points that are indicators of success. It’s important to have clearly listed goals, shared between team members. When it all feels chaotic, referring back to the indicators enables every team member who reads them, to get their focus back.&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>Alan pins a spreadsheet to each channel with a graphic, to show at a glance the status the team is maintaining with their goals.&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>This becomes a useful tool for discussing the assessment after the simulation exercise. The information can be displayed within a PowerPoint which makes it easily consumed and pinned to the channel.&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>Start a meeting in a channel. Keep conversation and documents together with the meeting</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>Within the channel, meetings can be started easily, to bring team members together. The meetings turn video on by default, so members can reduce the miscommunications during the exercise and during a real disaster event. Video can provide visual queues in the communication. It can be used to show the situation from a mobile camera, flipping it around to use the front camera. Any chat conversation in the thread stays with the meeting. Any documents attached to the conversation stay with the meeting. Coming soon to Government Microsoft 365, meeting recordings will be attached to the conversation thread.&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>By keeping the conversation responses, assets and decisions together, team members can quickly catch up or remind themselves of the outcomes, again lowering miscommunication in a time of crisis.&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><EM>Idea: How might Artificial Intelligence help make quick decisions during a disaster?&nbsp;&nbsp;</EM></P> <P><SPAN>To assist teams to pick up the main points quickly, cognitive services could be used to suggest question and answer pairing, decisions made or tasks assigned. When time means saving lives, anything that highlight information for quick decisions and action will be incredibly beneficial.</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Questions from the audience&nbsp;</STRONG></P> <P><STRONG>Q.</STRONG> Someone had&nbsp;recently&nbsp;joined&nbsp;a company,&nbsp;and as part of their induction,&nbsp;was sent a lot of SharePoint links&nbsp;to resources to review.&nbsp;There wasn’t a lot of context to the content.&nbsp;&nbsp;</P> <P><SPAN>Will&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>Microsoft Teams&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>replace SharePoint?&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN><STRONG>A.</STRONG> No.&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>SharePoint&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>is in the background</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;to facilitate sharing and collaborating on files. When we on-board, we need context to the resources and typically comes from conversation about and around the resource. This has traditionally been from email attachments. But they are difficult to retrieve and send new members.&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>When a team member, existing or new, wants to add more to the conversation, it is difficult to find and certainly not visible to inspire more creative thought.&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><SPAN>A list of highlighted conversations with most recent responses would help the team continue to refine a process or and idea through further discussion, that is easy to find. Consider using a web page in the SharePoint site of the Microsoft Team. Pin the page as a tab, with links to the conversations in the different categories. It would be useful to see a web part in the form of a card to highlight a conversation and the latest couple of responses.&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><SPAN><STRONG>Q.&nbsp;</STRONG>Can you invite people from outside your org, to the meeting?&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN><STRONG>A.&nbsp;</STRONG>Yes. They won’t get access to the rest of the content in the team. But you can add them as a guest.&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>Recording will come. We just have to wait till Stream</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;has been approved for use in Government Microsoft 365 tenants</SPAN><SPAN>. It wont bring in old meeting recordings.&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>Conversations are journaled over to Exchange. So you can trace and retain it.&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><SPAN><STRONG>Q.&nbsp;</STRONG>How do I access the Files from the mobile app?&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN><STRONG>A.</STRONG> Use OneDrive</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;app and mobile Office apps for a richer files experience on the mobile.&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><SPAN><STRONG>Q.&nbsp;</STRONG>Will Teams support current working styles in OneNote?</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P><SPAN><STRONG>A.&nbsp;</STRONG>Government 365 tenants don’t yet have OneNote tabs, because a component of the service sits outside the government perimeter.

This blog post recaps what is available today, some new announcements, and a quick overview of what to expect in the future for Microsoft Teams management.</P> <H1>&nbsp;</H1> <H1>Management Tools that Fit the Scenario</H1> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>A significant takeaway I had at Ignite 2018 was gaining an appreciation for the power of Microsoft applications being tightly integrated into the "Microsoft 365" infrastructure. The Microsoft Teams client is a shinning example of this. It leverages Office 365 Groups, Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, and many other Office 365 services to provide the end-user with a powerful one-stop collaboration experience.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Similarly, the Teams management experience benefits from Teams running on the M365 Infrastructure.&nbsp; As shown here, this infrastructure provides administration tools for managing the underlying pillars such as Office 365 Groups, the Microsoft Teams service itself, and Security and Compliance.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Teams Blog Pic 1.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55073i44667059EF695DF6/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Teams Blog Pic 1.png" alt="Teams Blog Pic 1.png" /></span></P> <H2>&nbsp;</H2> <H2>And Let's not Forget PowerShell!</H2> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Another huge benefit of a common infrastructure is the ability to use PowerShell for bulk administration and more advanced management needs in all the scenarios shown above. Isabelle demonstrated this by using the <A href="#" target="_blank">Azure AD PowerShell Preview module for Graph</A> to set a naming policy on Office 365 Groups.&nbsp; Teams will enforce any of the Office 365 group settings that are configured in the organization.&nbsp; The <A href="#" target="_blank">Get-AzureADDirectorySettings cmdlet</A> in the Azure AD preview module will show all of the configuration settings that can be used to manage the creation of the underlying Office 365 groups.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Likewise, administrators can use a remote PowerShell session to connect to Office 365 Security &amp; Compliance Center and set retention and eDiscovery policies and apply them to manage the messages in Teams Channels and Chat.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>A handy reference slide was presented during the session which detailed which management tool was available for the most common Teams management scenarios:</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Teams Blog Pic (reference).JPG" style="width: 990px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55081iAD1C0E45DB62AFF2/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Teams Blog Pic (reference).JPG" alt="Teams Blog Pic (reference).JPG" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H1>Administrator Roles for Microsoft Teams</H1> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H2>Four New Administrator Roles for Microsoft Teams</H2> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>One the significant new Teams manageability announcements was the introduction of new administrator RBAC roles specifically for Teams.&nbsp; There are four new roles:</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <OL> <LI>Teams Service Administrator</LI> <UL> <LI>This role is the classic all-inclusive service admin role that has broad rights to administer the Teams workload (much like the equivalent in Exchange Online, and SharePoint Online).</LI> <LI>Coming soon, users with this role will also be able to manage the underlying Office 365 Groups, including creating groups on behalf of users.</LI> </UL> <LI>Teams Communication <STRONG>Administrator</STRONG></LI> <UL> <LI>Can manage calling and meetings features</LI> <LI>This role grants administrators access to configure and manage the calling and meetings features.</LI> </UL> <LI>Teams Communication Support <STRONG>Engineer</STRONG></LI> <UL> <LI>This role provides engineers in the organization access to the necessary tools and all the associated data to diagnose problems (e.g. like Call Analytics).</LI> </UL> <LI>Teams Communication Support <STRONG>Specialist</STRONG></LI> <UL> <LI>This role is similar to the 'Teams Communication Support Engineer' but is meant more for a telephony helpdesk persona who is tasked with handling first-line type support requests for calling issues.&nbsp; Users with this role have access to a limited set of personally identifiable information (PII); information about the user whose call record was queried is visible, but not the information about any other participants in the session.</LI> </UL> </OL> <P>These roles can be viewed and set in the associated Azure AD (AAD) tenant portal.&nbsp; For any AAD user, the new Teams administrator directory roles can be managed as shown here:</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Teams Blog Pic 3.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55075i9CA7F6469F3CCEDD/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Teams Blog Pic 3.png" alt="Teams Blog Pic 3.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H2>Leverage Those Existing Office 365 Administrator Roles!</H2> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>The introduction of new Teams admin roles does not diminish the use of other existing Office 365 administrator roles.&nbsp; As Isabella Lubin described in her session "How to Manage Teams Effectively", Teams is built-on and benefits from the Microsoft 365 infrastructure; other roles such as Compliance Administrator enable the appropriate administrator privileges for other Teams enterprise scenarios such as compliance, security, and eDiscovery in the other management portals.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>The use of the new and existing roles will depend on size and needs of the Teams organization. Larger organizations typically require more granular administration roles for dedicated staff.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H1>Policies and Configuration</H1> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>As anyone who has managed Skype for Business Online or Exchange Online knows,&nbsp; policies play an important role.&nbsp; Teams is no different.&nbsp; Policies are available to manage the user experience, feature availability, and capabilities of Teams both at the user level and organization level.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Teams borrows from the Skype for Business policy administration model.&nbsp; Polices can be defined at an Organization and user level.&nbsp; The effective policy is the most granular; which is the user level policy (if one is set).&nbsp; This model allows for default organization-wide policies that govern Teams Meeting, Messaging, and Calling, and also per-user specific policies for groups and users where needed.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Here is a screen shot from the Teams &amp; Skype for Business Admin Center showing the creation of an example Meeting Policy:</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Teams Blog Pic 4.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55076i5900F27FE57ED93E/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Teams Blog Pic 4.png" alt="Teams Blog Pic 4.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;<STRONG>Configuration</STRONG> settings typically do not follow this model.&nbsp; Configuration settings such as whether to "Allow external apps in Teams" apply only at an organization level. Here is a sample screen shot of some Teams tenant configuration settings in the same Teams &amp; SfB Admin Center:</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Teams Blog Pic 5.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55077i44F943C28117CC61/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Teams Blog Pic 5.png" alt="Teams Blog Pic 5.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H2>New Polices to Manage Teams Application Permissions and Setup</H2> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Another new announcement was the future addition of two new application policies for Microsoft Teams:&nbsp; <STRONG>App Permission Policies</STRONG> and <STRONG>App Setup Policies</STRONG>.&nbsp; No date was given for their release but here is more information about each policy type.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <UL> <LI><STRONG>App Permission Policies</STRONG></LI> </UL> <OL> <OL> <UL> <LI>This policy will allow organizations to manage what applications users have access to.</LI> <LI>Applications will be classified as one of the following categories:</LI> <UL> <LI>1st party (Microsoft)</LI> <LI>3rd party</LI> <LI>LOB Apps (Tenant Apps)</LI> </UL> <LI>Administrators can set these restrictions for each type of application:</LI> <UL> <LI>Allow all apps</LI> <LI>Allow specific aps and block all users</LI> <LI><STRONG>Block specific apps</STRONG> and allow all others</LI> <LI>Block all apps&nbsp;</LI> </UL> </UL> </OL> </OL> <UL> <LI><STRONG>App Setup Policies</STRONG></LI> </UL> <OL> <UL> <LI>App Setup policies will govern how apps get pinned in the Teams client and show in the left navigation bar for users</LI> </UL> </OL> <P><LI-WRAPPER></LI-WRAPPER></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H1>The Staples of Management - Reporting &amp; Troubleshooting</H1> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Managing any service requires tools for reporting and troubleshooting.&nbsp; Teams is no different.&nbsp; The real-time nature of communication features such as desktop sharing and calling amplify the need for troubleshooting tools which provide support engineers the ability to drill down into specific user and session level data to identify and resolve end-user issues.&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H2>Troubleshooting</H2> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Starting with Microsoft Skype for Business Online, Microsoft introduced the Call Analytics and the Call Quality Dashboard (CQD).&nbsp; Both tools are used to monitor call quality and gain specific information about the call quality experienced by users, and troubleshoot issues when there is a poor experience.&nbsp; The Microsoft documentation on both tools provides an excellent description of what these tools do and how to use them:&nbsp; <A href="#" target="_blank">Call Analytics and Call Quality Dashboard.</A>&nbsp;&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <OL> <LI><STRONG>Call Analytics</STRONG> provides detailed, specific information about the call quality experienced by users.&nbsp; A Microsoft Teams support engineer or helpdesk agent can investigate the device, network, connectivity, and other factors related to calls and other modalities like desktop sharing.&nbsp; A great feature in the new Teams and SfB Admin Center is that the call analytics is directly accessible off of the "Call History" tab for any user - making it very easy to find a user through the new Search text box and drill-in to a particular users media session.&nbsp; More information about the integrated Call Analytics can be found here:&nbsp; <A href="#" target="_blank">https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/MicrosoftTeams/difference-between-call-analytics-and-call-quality-dashboard</A><STRONG>.</STRONG></LI> <LI>The <STRONG>Call Quality Dashboard (CQD</STRONG>) provides aggregate call quality information for the entire Teams organization and gives insight into overall call quality trends and patterns.</LI> </OL> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>During the Ignite session on managing Teams effectively, Isabella Lubin demonstrated how easy it is to drill into the Call Quality metrics of a specific user through the new User Search capabilities in the Teams Admin portal, and isolate a network issue causing quality issues.&nbsp; Here is a sample screen shot of the latest integrated user call analytics from the Call History tab:</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Teams Blog Pic 6.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55078i98684490FA3FF6F3/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Teams Blog Pic 6.png" alt="Teams Blog Pic 6.png" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>More detailed information about any given session including the media and networking statistics can be viewed my selecting any session as shown here:</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Teams Blog Pic 7.png" style="width: 656px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55079iE648C610499EC2B2/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Teams Blog Pic 7.png" alt="Teams Blog Pic 7.png" /></span></P> <H2>&nbsp;</H2> <H2>Reporting</H2> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Reporting on Microsoft Teams usage plays a vital role in understanding end-user adoption, and resource usage.&nbsp; Two basic reporting tools were highlighted at Ignite with a mention that more will be delivered in the future:</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <OL> <LI><STRONG>Teams Usage Reporting in the M365 Admin Portal</STRONG>.&nbsp; For years, basic summary usage reports for the major Office 365 workloads have been available directly in the Office 365 Admin Portal (not the M365 Admin Portal).&nbsp; Teams usage is available and provides insight into the number of active users, channel and chat messages, over 7, 30, 60, and 90 days.&nbsp; Administrators can drill-in and see these metrics per user, as well as last activity date, which helps identify active vs non-active users, and Teams resources that are no longer being used. Anne Michels has an excellent review of what Teams reporting is available in the Office 365 Admin Center in this TechCommunity blog post:&nbsp; <A href="https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/Microsoft-Teams-Blog/New-usage-reports-for-Microsoft-Teams/ba-p/132614" target="_blank">New usage reports for Microsoft Teams</A>.&nbsp;</LI> </OL> <P>&nbsp;</P> <OL> <LI><STRONG>The Office 365 Adoption Content Pack</STRONG>.&nbsp; For more in-depth analytics and user adoption data, the Microsoft Office 365 Adoption Content Pack leverages PowerBI and provides a very good perspective on Teams adoption versus the other Office 365 workloads. It does require some configuration and setup, but is well worth the investment to understand how Teams is being adopted, and can be customized to your organizations needs.</LI> </OL> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Microsoft will continue to evolve their reporting functionality, and organizations are encouraged to submit their reporting needs in the Microsoft Teams User Voice: <A href="#" target="_blank">https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/20168716-reporting-capabilities</A>.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H1>Future Teams Management Additions</H1> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Attending several Microsoft Teams management sessions at Ignite, it was clear Microsoft is committed to providing a complete set of management tools to manage all aspects of Microsoft Teams - whether it be on-boarding, adoption, service quality, and day-to-day management.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Details of future plans were not discussed in details, but the following areas were identified as being a priority going forward:</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <UL> <LI>Device Management</LI> <LI>Change Management</LI> <LI>Richer Security and Compliance</LI> <LI>Better Reporting</LI> </UL> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Given the huge progress in Teams management capabilities over the past year,&nbsp; the evolution will be exciting to watch.&nbsp; Stay tuned!</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P style="margin: 0in; font-family: Calibri; font-size: 11.0pt;">&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> Wed, 10 Oct 2018 19:05:30 GMT https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/microsoft-ignite-live-blog-brk4102-managing-teams-effectively/ba-p/264733 Curtis Johnstone 2018-10-10T19:05:30Z Ignite MVP Live Blog : THR2041 How Microsoft does IT: Best practices for your Champion program https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/ignite-mvp-live-blog-thr2041-how-microsoft-does-it-best/ba-p/264694 <P>This session gives you insights from Microsoft IT about how they use their internal Teams Champion program to drive collaboration and communication using Microsoft Teams. The session was delivered by <BR /><A href="#" target="_blank">Sara Bush</A>, Sr. Program Manager Microsoft Teams, Microsoft. Sara is a member of the Teams &amp; Voice team in End User Services Engineering, Sara is driving Microsoft Teams adoption internally through the Art of Teamwork Tour training program, the Teamwork Champions program and the EUSE change management effort to bring all Microsoft users into a deep understanding of how Microsoft Teams supports day to day work, increasing collaboration and productivity.</P> <P><A href="#" target="_blank">Pouneh Kaufman</A>, Principal Program Manager, Microsoft.

It is valuable and gives you good insights how a worldwide company with more than 220k employees adopt and implement IT. During my projects I see that there is not a lot of difference in IT planning among large enterprises. Microsoft IT shares insights which can be extremely valuable when you use that in your own enterprise.</P> <P>First Sara and Pouneh talked about why Microsoft moved form Skype for Business to Microsoft Teams. Microsoft Teams helps the organization to get all communication channels together in one place. To drive adoption Microsoft IT runs an internal adoption program around awareness, engagement, measurement, management.</P> <P>&nbsp;<span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="adoption.JPG" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55098iC50BA5C5D2BC9EE5/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="adoption.JPG" alt="adoption.JPG" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Success factors were defined in measurements, like collecting usage data, feedback to gain trust and awareness. The project scope was very clear:</P> <P>Get more than &gt;200k users to use Microsoft Teams and move away from Skype for Business.</P> <P>Success factors showed that it worked:</P> <P>over 55% of all chats happen in Teams, Teams meetings are widely used.</P> <P>Champions feedback measurements: 98% Program satisfaction, 88% Satisfaction Training support. 83% Satisfaction with monthly calls.</P> <P>&nbsp;<span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="results.JPG" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55101iF10C68CC75C55F68/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="results.JPG" alt="results.JPG" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>To drive adoption and usage Microsoft IT used a champions program. First champs came from passionate users which were found within their most active Teams Yammer participants. People wants to be in the know. Microsoft IT developed a training: <A href="#" target="_blank">Art of teamwork</A>. It is a level 100 training for end users, which is available to customers as well. More showcases are available <A href="#" target="_blank">here</A>. The best thing about a Champions program: Champions are bringing in other champions.</P> <P>So what are the Champions give and gets:</P> <P>Gives: Teamwork Training. Teams Yammer Group support. Champions List for organization. promote readiness.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="gives.JPG" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55099iB1775BBFDFA7EC70/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="gives.JPG" alt="gives.JPG" /></span></P> <P>Gets : Digital Profile Badge, Digital &amp; Physical Swag. Engage with SME’s and the Microsoft Product Group. “I see you, I recognize you, I need you”. access to monthly call with product group. Champions need to be visible to end users.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="gets.JPG" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55100i7DAEAD5DFE7DC392/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="gets.JPG" alt="gets.JPG" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;The results are impressive:</P> <UL> <LI>more than 650 Champions,</LI> <LI>45 Countries,</LI> <LI>90 Buildings</LI> </UL> <P>To find champions use the channels which are available – like Microsoft IT used the Yammer group. They make their Champions recognizable.</P> <P>Further ways to drive adoption worked through Gamification:</P> <P>A little friendly competition. Earn points by hosting internal training. Point system for users development. new badges for new levels.

The goals of new service were twofold:</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <OL> <LI>To democratise the ability to create a live event so practically anyone can easily produce a professional broadcast</LI> <LI>To give experts the tools the need to operate complex broadcasts</LI> </OL> <P>&nbsp;<span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="spectrum.PNG" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55060i147964E115503AC7/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="spectrum.PNG" alt="spectrum.PNG" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Microsoft see a spectrum of meetings starting with 1:1 and up to large scheduled meetings for up to 250 attendees in Teams, from this point on Teams live events take over to scale up to 10,000 global live viewers.&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>A lengthy set of demonstrations showed how live events can be scheduled within Teams as a Live Event meeting inviting the producers and presenters, then select the type of audience and whether to use the integrated Quick Start experience or an external encoder. &nbsp;For Quick Start meetings Teams then adopts a special ‘producer&nbsp; mode’ where the person running the event can select which video and content to send into the stream, controlling what’s next to go live in the left screen before the live broadcast in the right.&nbsp; This means the producer has more control, so for example can see if the presenters are ready, validate if there are any issues with video quality before sending the stream live. During the broadcast the producer can also see a live count of the number of people tuned in live.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Slide20.PNG" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/54998i3ED3BB81A3A3A62A/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Slide20.PNG" alt="Slide20.PNG" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Of significant note was the soon to be released live subtitling with automatic translation into 60+ additional languages, which wowed the audience with what seemed to be very accurate translations on a presentation which had a fair amount of jargon performed live by a colleague in Seattle.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>For events where a more professional crew are involved with multiple cameras, media clips etc they will mix and encode the session using a tool like Tricaster, OBS, Wirecast or others. Teams supports these external encoders send a stream directly using RTMP (Real Time Media Protocol), giving the best possible experience by removing additional steps.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Slide31.PNG" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/54999i2061FD4BE669B6C2/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Slide31.PNG" alt="Slide31.PNG" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Teams admin centre and PowerShell support Live Event Policies that can be used to control the fine permissions to start events per user or for your entire organisation. For example, allow most of your users to schedule live events that are only accessible by users within the company, but make an exception for staff in media relations so their events can be public.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Slide16.PNG" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55000iED1C82D6F6C6B386/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Slide16.PNG" alt="Slide16.PNG" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>The live events architecture exploits (without charge) the Azure Media Service platform and Azure CDN to ensure that all attendees are able to watch a reliable stream, and if organisations require similar CDN capabilities within their network they can exploit partner solutions from Kollective, Hive or Ramp.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>The audience were excited by the new features on display in the preview and specifically asked:</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Q. Will there be training available? HG – Certainly anticipate providing suitable training as the preview completes by end of 2018.</P> <P>Q. What thoughts are there for attendee dial in to meetings? HG – Thinking through this and the cost AP – Current version works great on mobile.</P> <P>Q. How is it determined where meetings are hosted? AP – Like Teams meetings the inner production meeting is hosted in an environment close to the first participant in the meeting, but for attendees it’s distributed by AzureCDN so effectively runs ‘everywhere’.</P> <P>Q. Can SRS devices be scheduled members of the internal meeting? AP – On the roadmap</P> <P>Q. How can videos be replayed with audio? AP – videos can be played though screen sharing, but audio support for this is in the roadmap.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Teams live events are available today in regular tenants (no go local, Government Community Cloud etc yet but coming) for people to try.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Additional Resources</STRONG></P> <P>User documentation - <A href="#" target="_blank">https://support.office.com/en-us/article/microsoft-teams-live-events-overview-d077fec2-a058-483e-9ab5-1494afda578a</A></P> <P>Admin documentation - <A href="#" target="_blank">https://aka.ms/TeamsLiveEvents</A></P> Sun, 30 Sep 2018 19:08:11 GMT https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/ignite-live-blog-brk-2169-reaching-broader-audiences-with/ba-p/264488 Steven Collier 2018-09-30T19:08:11Z Ignite Live Blog - BRK3138 - Managing Client Deployments and Updates for Microsoft Teams https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/ignite-live-blog-brk3138-managing-client-deployments-and-updates/ba-p/264655 <P>In a full packed room of hundreds of attendees Ori Kashi presenting the basics and news about Microsoft Teams Deployment.</P> <P>&nbsp;<span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Ignite2018_BRK3138_Head.jpg" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55058i17DD1F9C29019F2C/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Ignite2018_BRK3138_Head.jpg" alt="Ignite2018_BRK3138_Head.jpg" /></span></P> <P><STRONG>Client Options</STRONG></P> <P>IT Administrators can handle the Client Options on Desktop, mobile and Web via Policies configurated in the Microsoft Teams and Skype for Business Admin Center and via PowerShell.</P> <P>The <STRONG>Microsoft Teams Desktop</STRONG> Client is a MSI for IT-driven installation per User, currently via a separate installation (Standalone .exe) and in the <STRONG>future soon via Office 365 Pro Plus monthly</STRONG>.

Obwohl die Breakout-Session eine 400er Session war, fanden zahlreiche Teilnehmer den Weg zum Session Raum im Hyatt.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Damit Microsoft Teams Nutzer auch mit Teilnehmern kommunizieren können, die nur per Telefon erreichbar sind, ist eine Enterprise Voice Anbindung an das öffentliche Telefonnetz (PSTN) notwendig. Eine Möglichkeit ist die Nutzung der Cloud Telefonanlage (Cloud PBX mit Calling Plans) als Bestandteil des Office 365 Angebotes. Dieses Angebot steht allerdings nicht in allen Ländern zur Verfügung. Ebenso möchten Unternehmen vielleicht eine existierende Telefonanlage weiterhin verwenden oder, z.B. aus Kostengründen, eine PSTN-Anbindung mit der eigenen Infrastruktur umsetzen.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;<span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Nikolay presenting his Deep Dive session on Direct Routing" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55005iF562980D044B8050/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="BRK4014-Photo.png" alt="Nikolay presenting his Deep Dive session on Direct Routing" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Nikolay presenting his Deep Dive session on Direct Routing</span></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Direct Routing ermöglicht aber auch andere Einsatzszenarien. So ist es möglich Calling Plans und Direct Routing parallel zu nutzen. Mit dieser Möglichkeit können ausgehende Anrufe in eine Zielregion (z.B. +49) direkt über die Microsoft Cloud PBX realisiert werden und Anrufe in andere Regionen über Direct Routing an die On-Premises Enterprise Voice Infrastruktur übergeben werden. Der Betrieb von Direct Routing erfordert die Nutzung von zertifizierten Session Border Controllern (SBC). Nur so können die Anruffunktionen und die Anrufqualitäten sichergestellt werden.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Im Rahmen seiner 400er Session beschrieb Nikolay ausführlich die einzelnen Schritte für unterschiedliche Teams Direct Routing Anrufvarianten, z.B. für einen Anruf ohne und mit Media Bypass.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Bei<span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Example of Direct Routing without Media Bypass" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55004i86E047802676249B/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="BRK4014-CallWithoutMediaPass.png" alt="Example of Direct Routing without Media Bypass" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Example of Direct Routing without Media Bypass</span></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Nikolay empfahl eindringlich, nur zertifizierte Session Border Controller zu verwenden. Als Hauptgrund führte er die regelmäßigen Updates des Teams Clients und der internen Microsoft Teams Komponenten an. Die Servicing-Tests für neue Software-Releases erfolgen nur mit Session Border Controllern, die am Zertifizierungsprogramm teilnehmen. Ebenso gibt es einen direkten Support-Übergang im Bedarfsfall zwischen Microsoft und den SBC-Herstellern, von dem Kunden beim Problem profitieren können.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Aktuell steht für die Verwaltung keine grafische Oberfläche zur Verfügung.

Although the breakout session was a 400-session, many participants found their way to the session room at the Hyatt.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>In order for Microsoft Teams users to communicate with users who can only be reached by phone, the Microsoft Teams infrastructure must have an Enterprise Voice connection to the telephony network (PSTN). One option is the use of the Cloud PBX (with calling plans) as part of the Office 365 offering. This offer is currently not available in all countries. Likewise, companies may want to continue using an existing Enterprise Voice system or implement an on-premises PSTN connection for cost reasons.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;<span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Nikolay presenting his Deep Dive session on Direct Routing" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55005iF562980D044B8050/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="BRK4014-Photo.png" alt="Nikolay presenting his Deep Dive session on Direct Routing" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Nikolay presenting his Deep Dive session on Direct Routing</span></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>But Direct Routing allows for other options. It is possible to use Calling Plans and Direct Routing in parallel. With this capability, outbound calls to a destination (e.g., calling prefix +49) can be routed directly through the Microsoft Cloud PBX, and calls to other calling prefixes can be routed to the on-premises Enterprise Voice infrastructure using direct routing. The use of Direct routing requires the implementation of certified Session Border Controllers (SBC) to ensure call functionality and call quality.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>As part of this 400-session Nikolay described the individual steps for different teams direct routing call variants in detail, e.g. for a calls without and with Media Bypass.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Example of Direct Routing without Media Bypass" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55004i86E047802676249B/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="BRK4014-CallWithoutMediaPass.png" alt="Example of Direct Routing without Media Bypass" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Example of Direct Routing without Media Bypass</span></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Nikolay strongly recommended using only certified session border controllers. The main reason for this is the regular updates of the Teams Client and the internal Microsoft Teams components. Servicing tests for new software releases are only performed with Session Border Controllers participating in the certification program. There is also an optional direct support ticket transition between Microsoft and SBC manufacturers from which customers can benefit in the case of an technical issue.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Currently there is no graphical interface available for the administration of Direct Routing. All components and routes are configured using PowerShell. The implementation of a graphical interface is on the roadmap.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Example of a PowerShell configuration for connecting a local session border controller</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <PRE>New-CsOnlinePSTNGateway -Fqdn sbc1.contoso.com -SipSignallingPort 5068 -MaxConcurentSessions 140 -Enabled $true</PRE> <P>For a successful connection of the On-Premises Enterprise Voice infrastructure to Office 365, certain requirements must be met at Microsoft, at the telecommunications provider and, of course, at the customer side.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Requirements for a Microsoft Teams Direct Routing integration" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/55006i8091A79CBC56C1A4/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="BRK4014-CustomerSelfDeployedModel.png" alt="Requirements for a Microsoft Teams Direct Routing integration" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Requirements for a Microsoft Teams Direct Routing integration</span></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>The customer requirements are:</P> <UL> <LI>E5 or E3 licenses + Microsoft Phone System licenses</LI> <LI>SIP provider connection</LI> <LI>Supported Session Border Controllers (with support contract)</LI> <LI>Access to SBC public IP address(es) from Office 365</LI> <LI>Public IP address(es)</LI> <LI>Public resolvable DNS name (FQDN)</LI> <LI>TLS certificate</LI> <LI>SBC configuration for Office 365</LI> </UL> <P>In this technical deep dive session Nikolay explained the possibilities and functions of Direct Routing in detail.

Using the example of the German legal system and the communication of law firms with clients, and between law firms and courts, it became clear that digitization is only progressing very slowly. Even the special electronic mailbox (beA), which is mandatory for law firms, offers only a base security of communication and is not suitable for everyday use.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Raphael talking about the Microsoft Teams based solution for lawyers" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/54974i490B1BA15D33886E/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="THR2141-Photo.jpg" alt="Raphael talking about the Microsoft Teams based solution for lawyers" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Raphael talking about the Microsoft Teams based solution for lawyers</span></span></P> <P>Microsoft Teams provides the following benefits for secure communication and better job performance:</P> <UL> <LI>Optimized project management of lawsuits</LI> <LI>Simplified communication with clients and optional recording</LI> <LI>Clients always know the status of their case</LI> <LI>Working in a secured infrastructure</LI> <LI>No forwarding of documents</LI> <LI>Standardized encryption of communication and documents</LI> </UL> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="Example architecture for a Microsoft Teams based solution for lawyers" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/54976iAF3C594BF1B752DB/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="THR2141-Architecture.png" alt="Example architecture for a Microsoft Teams based solution for lawyers" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Example architecture for a Microsoft Teams based solution for lawyers</span></span></P> <P>The use of e.g. Unified Labeling and Azure KeyVault ensures that all documents are consistently categorized and encrypted with a unique corporate key.

Drive Digital Transformation through Apps in Microsoft Teams"</EM></STRONG></SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Yesterday at Microsoft Ignite 2018 I attended “BRK2453 - Drive Digital Transformation through Apps in Microsoft Teams” and took some notes as well as photos and videos to share a quick overview with the Microsoft Tech Community. Before the session started I went up to the stage and chatted with Jace Moreno from the Microsoft Teams about what he thought the biggest take away should be for the session. Jace talked about how he really wanted folks to start thinking of Teams as a platform for building out their business on Microsoft 365, and I think this session did a great job highlighting some interesting ways folks are currently using Teams to do new interactions with their users</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="20180925_200944406_iOS.jpg" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/54632i49BBB32DF5B4ACFD/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="20180925_200944406_iOS.jpg" alt="20180925_200944406_iOS.jpg" /></span>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>The session started with Jace giving us a tour of screenshots of real-world ways his team at Microsoft uses Teams to get their work done. He was excited to not show off a generic Contoso template with fake information, but he did have to blank out a couple areas of his screen to make sure not to reveal any top-secret Microsoft Teams team information! :smiling_face_with_smiling_eyes:</img></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>While showing off his Teams usage he highlighted how he was following specific channels to really focus on the information that is important to his work. From there he highlighted some of the more interesting ways his team was using tabs to bring in useful features of Microsoft 365.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="20180925_200936239_iOS.jpg" style="width: 749px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/54633iDDC482E3CB05FA9E/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="20180925_200936239_iOS.jpg" alt="20180925_200936239_iOS.jpg" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Some of the features they were using in Teams included a Planner tab for managing projects, an external team for sharing and getting valuable feedback from their MVP community (side note: as a Microsoft MVP myself… I love this feature!), a Trello board, OneNote for keeping notes, PowerBI for customer analytics, and even a custom developed internal Microsoft tool for approving expenses. Seeing all these surfaced quickly in his Favorites showed off the power of Teams for keeping one focused view of his work world.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="20180925_201958569_iOS.jpg" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/54634i6BA478F5B7607B78/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="20180925_201958569_iOS.jpg" alt="20180925_201958569_iOS.jpg" /></span>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Andrew Bybee from Microsoft brought up Kranthi Chiluka from Accenture to demo a universal assistant they have created for their employees to use to interface with ServiceNow for internal support. By leveraging Teams, they were able to consolidate their support services into a single point. They demoed their app and used it to request a new laptop from their internal purchasing process. Andrew then reviewed some of the new features in Teams like Personal Apps, Teams App Studio, adding apps to private chats, bringing SharePoint into Teams tabs, and lastly a new Rich Model Canvas for showing Cards in context.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;<span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="20180926_154026000_iOS.jpg" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/54636i88366531CB2BC9F9/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="20180926_154026000_iOS.jpg" alt="20180926_154026000_iOS.jpg" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Next, Andrew brought up Chris Gubata from GE to show off how GE created their OneGE Search &amp; Eddie News system in Teams. They demoed an app that gets 400k daily hits and allows users to find relevant GE news and push it out to wider audiences via sources like LinkedIn. Andrew then talked about how the Microsoft Graph is really the API that connects to everything in Microsoft 365 and how bots and cloud services could leverage the Graph.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="20180926_154146000_iOS.jpg" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/54637i2A62367605B9E516/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="20180926_154146000_iOS.jpg" alt="20180926_154146000_iOS.jpg" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>After that, Andrew brought up Ryan Fowler from Singlewire to show off how they integrated their Informacast alert system into Teams. They showed a cool demo where the audience was able to text a service and subscribe to severe weather alerts and then from Teams Ryan was able to send out a mass weather alert to all devices that had subscribed as well as send a visual and audible alert from hardware devices he had on stage. Lastly, Andrew talked about how apps can be enabled by IT pros and end users using the store and how the Office 365 Admin Portal can be used to control and analyze app usage and then he showed off highlights of Teams features that are available today.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="20180926_154119000_iOS.jpg" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/54638i7A436209B42DAD92/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="20180926_154119000_iOS.jpg" alt="20180926_154119000_iOS.jpg" /></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>View the recording of this session, here: <A href="#" target="_blank">https://myignite.techcommunity.microsoft.com/sessions/65534?source=sessions#ignite-html-anchor</A></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Randy Drisgill</P> <P><A title="My Blog" href="#" target="_blank">My Blog</A></P> <P><A title="My Twitter" href="#" target="_blank">My Twitter</A></P> Sat, 29 Sep 2018 02:25:39 GMT https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/ignite-live-blog-brk2453-drive-digital-transformation-through/ba-p/262897 Randy Drisgill 2018-09-29T02:25:39Z Ignite Live Blog: BRK2188 Microsoft Teams で実現する、インテリジェントな会議 (Japanese) https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/microsoft-teams-events-blog/ignite-live-blog-brk2188-microsoft-teams-%E3%81%A7%E5%AE%9F%E7%8F%BE%E3%81%99%E3%82%8B-%E3%82%A4%E3%83%B3%E3%83%86%E3%83%AA%E3%82%B8%E3%82%A7%E3%83%B3%E3%83%88%E3%81%AA%E4%BC%9A%E8%AD%B0/ba-p/264340 <P>Guest blog post by: <A href="https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/user/viewprofilepage/user-id/196067" target="_blank">Chisa Minoda</A></P> <P><SPAN>&nbsp;<BR /></SPAN></P> <P><SPAN>今回翻訳させていただいたのは、</SPAN><SPAN>Maarten&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>Eekels</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>氏のまとめによる</SPAN><SPAN>”</SPAN><A href="https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/Microsoft-Teams-Events-Blog/Ignite-Live-Blog-BRK2188-Intelligent-meetings-in-Microsoft-Teams/ba-p/263086" target="_blank"><SPAN>Ignite Live Blog – BRK2188 – Intelligent meetings in Microsoft Teams</SPAN></A><SPAN>”</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;</SPAN><SPAN>です。</SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;<BR /></SPAN><SPAN>&nbsp;<BR /></SPAN><SPAN>/</SPAN><SPAN>/////////</SPAN><SPAN data-ccp-props="{&quot;201341983&quot;:0,&quot;335559739&quot;:160,&quot;335559740&quot;:259}">&nbsp;</SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Microsoft Teams を利用したミーティングは以前から可能でしたが、ここ数か月で格段に 「インテリジェント」 の要素が取り入れられてきた印象があります。<BR /> <BR /> このセッションでは、Microsoft Teams Meetings Business のオーナーである <A href="https://gorovian.000webhostapp.com/?exam=t5/user/viewprofilepage/user-id/163916" target="_blank">Heidi Gloudemans</A> 氏、そしてTeams Meetings Experiences のプリンシパル グループ プログラム マネージャーである <A href="#" target="_blank">Amey Parandekar</A> 氏が登壇し、インテリジェントな会議に関連する興味深い機能を披露してくれました。<BR /> <BR /> セッションにおいて両氏は 「会議」 のライフサイクルを分析し、Microsoft Teams がより生産的なコラボレーションとインテリジェントなコミュニケーションにどのように貢献するかについての説明を展開しました。壇上にはデモ機として、少なくとも 6 台のデバイスがありました – でも、きっと問題なく動いてくれますよね?

A セッション、外部ユーザーに対するストリーミングにも対応しています。</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="snip_20180926211218.png" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/54954i091A1CDB81A87ED9/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="snip_20180926211218.png" alt="snip_20180926211218.png" /></span></P> <P><EM>Microsoft Teams </EM><EM>で開催できるリアルタイム イベント</EM></P> <P><STRONG><BR /> </STRONG><STRONG>安心して利用できる</STRONG></P> <P>統計によると、20% もの会議出席者は、モバイル デバイスを経由して参加しているとのことです。 Teams モバイル アプリは、「ビデオ接続を中止するかどうか/通常の電話回線を通じてかけ直すかどうかを確認するメッセージを表示」 等の機能で、接続状況の悪い環境にいるユーザーのよりスムーズな参加を可能にしてくれています。<BR /> <BR /> もちろん、ネットワークの速度と質も重要です。数千のロケーションで利用できる Microsoft の Azure Edge サービスは、参加者の場所から Microsoft ネットワークまでを最短でつなぐことを可能にします。トラフィックは Microsoft Azure ネットワークを経由し、エクスペリエンスの向上を保証してくれます。</P> <P><STRONG>【デモ】</STRONG></P> <P>6 台ものラップトップとモバイル デバイスを使いながら、Gloudemans 氏と Parandekar 氏は Teams で利用可能になる機能を披露してくれました。<BR /> <BR /> ・PowerPoint とデスクトップの両方で、制御の要求・制御の実行が可能になる</P> <P>・音声とコンテンツをそれぞれ別のデバイスから利用することが可能になる (Companion Join 機能)</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><EM><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-inline" image-alt="20180926_170728976_iOS.jpg" style="width: 186px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/54955i2C2501F115B6741E/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="20180926_170728976_iOS.jpg" alt="20180926_170728976_iOS.jpg" /></span></EM></P> <P><EM>Companion join in the mobile app</EM></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>【事例</STRONG><STRONG>: Air New Zealand</STRONG><STRONG>】</STRONG></P> <P>次に、Air New Zealand から参加した Wallis 氏による Teams の導入ストーリーが紹介されました。<BR /> <BR /> Air New Zealand は、導入を促進するためにデータを使用しています。同社では、利用率に応じてユーザーをベーシック ユーザー、アドプテッド ユーザー、チャンピオン ユーザーの 3 カテゴリーに分類しました。その結果、Teams と Teams 会議ロールアウトの対象となる 14,000 名のユーザーを、200 名のチャンピオン ユーザーがサポートし、利活用の促進に取り組むことになったそうです。非常に興味深い導入事例でした。もっと知りたい場合は、是非連絡してほしいとのことです。</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>【ロードマップ】</STRONG></P> <P>そしてセッションは、将来利用可能になる機能のスニーク プレビューで幕を閉じました。</P> <UL> <LI>Outlook Mac・OWA・Teams Mobile &amp;

For more general information about the session, please visit <SPAN><A href="#" target="_blank">https://myignite.techcommunity.microsoft.com/sessions/65527</A></SPAN>.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Last thing first! After the session one of the attendees approached me and said</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><EM>“Please let them know that before I entered this session, I was very skeptical to this whole Skype to Teams transmission, but this session really changed my mind. Thanks!”</EM></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>With that, let’s dive into this session blog!</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>The key enabler is Microsoft’s Global Network, which now is one of the top two global networks. That doesn’t mean that they are the second, but you know how it is in the cloud. When two providers constantly complete about being best, you may just call the battle even…<span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="Microsoft Global Network foot print" style="width: 800px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/54906i91B329857B742016/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="GlobalFootPrint.png" alt="Microsoft Global Network foot print" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Microsoft Global Network foot print</span></span>There is two key values is the global foot print and that it has been optimized for media.<span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="Key values from Microsoft Global Network" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/54907i0DF18C5151E7C301/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="GlobalNetworkValues.png" alt="Key values from Microsoft Global Network" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Key values from Microsoft Global Network</span></span></P> <P>In addition to this, the number of ports being used for enabling Voice and Video has been reduced and instead of using SIP, the service now communicates against REST endpoints.</P> <P>The rules to try keeping the routes short is still some of the most important parts of creating a great experience, and Microsoft has helped to make that possible by always opening the meeting as close to the attendees as possible. The figure below is an example of how the connection from Dublin looks like depending on what pool the meeting has been opened in.<span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="Quality in Microsoft Global Network" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/54908i942929204C63A529/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="OptimalRouting.png" alt="Quality in Microsoft Global Network" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Quality in Microsoft Global Network</span></span></P> <P>To get most of this, make sure to reach out to your ISP and ask them for Microsoft Peering. To learn more, see <SPAN><A href="#" target="_blank">https://peering.azurewebsites.net/Peering/Peering</A>.</SPAN> This is where we really see how Microsoft’s Global Network plays a crucial part of its success.</P> <P><span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="Example of how peering uses Microsoft Global Network" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/54909i6D45F45348B16749/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="TeamsMicrosoftPeering.png" alt="Example of how peering uses Microsoft Global Network" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Example of how peering uses Microsoft Global Network</span></span></P> <P>When a new Teams call, or video meeting, is connected it does intelligent routing to the closest Microsoft peering point, and from there uses the global network from Microsoft instead of traversing over internet. This is a solution that would have been costly to get deployed on your own premises, and especially for smaller organizations, when using Skype for Business pools. The figure below shows how this works in real life and is also a good example of why you shouldn’t use your corporate proxy solution for Microsoft Teams traffic.<span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="Shorten that internet connection as much as possible" style="width: 800px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/54910i7507D5E96955D68B/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="MinimizeInternetTrafific.png" alt="Shorten that internet connection as much as possible" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Shorten that internet connection as much as possible</span></span></P> <P>&nbsp;As you see from the picture above, the connection is first routed to the closest peering endpoint, and then the meeting is created in nearest data center.</P> <H1>The innovation</H1> <P>The figure below shows how it all builds on top of Microsoft Global Network, and the reality of Teams having been built cloud first, ensuring that every design decision is based on the idea and vision of always available, always evolving, and the end users need of being ubiquitous.&nbsp;<span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="How Teams is built on Global Network and born-in-Cloud" style="width: 800px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/54912i65C921CBAAEFA2BF/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Innovation.png" alt="How Teams is built on Global Network and born-in-Cloud" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">How Teams is built on Global Network and born-in-Cloud</span></span></P> <P>The session started with an explanation of the four pillars above, and showing the investments done.</P> <UL> <LI>High Quality Resilient AV</LI> <LI>Modern Operations</LI> <LI>Intelligent User Assistance</LI> <LI>Actionable IT Insights</LI> </UL> <H2>High Quality Resilient AV</H2> <P><STRONG>High Quality Resilient AV</STRONG> is enabled through the born-in-cloud and is all about making the best quality possible for the user, regardless of the surroundings. It’s a set of intelligent monitoring and actions configured into the platform, both on the frontend and the backend. Some of these features will be mentioned when going through the Intelligent User Assistance.</P> <P>One of the best improvements however is how the video stream now is handled. Before you would receive new reference frames more often, which is more likely to be experienced as freezing video when doing the call over unstable network. By using what they call long term reference frames, the Teams application can use them together with delta frames for a longer period, resulting in a way better video experience. Have a look at the video at [mm:ss] to see it in action.</P> <P>Another great feature that has been built-in, is that teams will help you to switch from IP to PSTN call just with a single click. This is perfect when you for instance just have a couple of minutes left of the call, and for some reason loses network for a long time.</P> <H2>Intelligent User Assistance</H2> <P><STRONG>Intelligent User Assistance</STRONG> is also heavily improved in Teams. Some of the features (se figure below) is well known from back in the day when we used Skype for Business, but the change is that they are more intelligent than ever before. One of my absolute favorites is that you now you don’t have to type that crazy digit conference PIN after clicking “Join by phone”. Maybe not that intelligent from a “Intelligent Cloud” perspective, but the engineer taking the task to implement it should definitively get a raise!<span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="Some of the improvements in user interface" style="width: 800px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/54915iB85C68820D094B92/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="UserFacingAlerts.png" alt="Some of the improvements in user interface" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Some of the improvements in user interface</span></span></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Low speaker volume</STRONG>: How many calls haven’t started with someone in the chat complaining about not hearing anything, and the presenter get’s all the blame! Now teams will identify more client issues and gives the end user a polite notification that there is a potential issue with their speaker, and maybe it is time to unmute the speaker.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Poor Network</STRONG>: Not completely new this either, but highly improved. First Teams will try to optimize the data stream for what it’s worth, but if the machine learning models still sense a bad connection, it asks the user to turn of video for now, and instead use the available network for voice. If all that fails, it even recommends the user to continue the call using PSTN, and frictionless transition the call.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Echo suppression</STRONG>: Ever been in a call with Echo? That’s horrible, and now Teams has built-in identification of echo, and will do mitigation against it. For instance, notifying the user that are making this noise, and try to remove it from the stream.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Device failure and switch</STRONG>: Ever experienced that your headset runs out of power, and you have pulled the plug of your headset by accident during a call? Before that would result in a call on hold, and you losing a lot of the conversation. Now, Teams can switch seamlessly into a new device, which normally would be your device built-in speakers and mic. So no more excuses about failing audio devices…</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Smart device selection</STRONG>: This is another great feature where Teams will identify the best available device for your call. So for example, if you are doing the call using built-in speakers and mic, and then docking your device, and a better device is detected (for example a USB headset), Teams would do a smooth switch over to that device, and continue the call there.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Speak-while-muted</STRONG>: Ever heard anyone say “Arh! Sorry! Had forgotten to unmute and was talking to myself there for a minute!”. Well, now Teams will be able to detect that your mic is muted in the call and give you a notification if you start talking too much to yourself. That’s just prefect, at least for me!</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Noise reduction</STRONG>: Ever experienced talking with someone with a bad mic, while they work from a public place? It’s not good! This is something that Teams now can detect as background noise and filter away from the stream. It sounds almost like the active noise canceling feature you have in higher end headsets and are just amazing! Again, the intelligence comes from machine learning and AI, which will identify your voice, and removing the rest. It even can identify if you get away from your mic, and then boost the mic volume! Again, have a peak at the video to hear it for yourself!</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Background blur</STRONG>: removes everything else than you. For instance, when you are working from home, you can “hide” your messy room, or anything else that you don’t want to show.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P><STRONG>Consistent experience</STRONG>: The experience form using Teams will be similar on any device. This way its simpler for the end user to use all the different devices supporting Teams. Have a look at it a bit further down in this blog post, and try it out yourself on mobile, PC, Mac and web browser.</P> <P>&nbsp;<span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="Familiar experience across devices" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/54916iCD52B5B8AA4906FE/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="FamilarExperience.png" alt="Familiar experience across devices" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Familiar experience across devices</span></span></P> <H2>Modern Operations</H2> <P><STRONG>Modern Operations</STRONG> is how Microsoft product group does its development of Teams. By constantly monitoring how the platform is operating, and with a well adopted DevOps strategy, that can constantly improve the service and improving the parts that really matter. This way we as end users gets new bits faster.</P> <P>By using microservice architecture to host the platform, and getting E2E metrics, the developer teams can take quick actions to any issues in the platform, and even on the end user side. Many of these metrics are also available for the IT admins, which you can read more about in next chapter. This, together with AB Testing and Machine Learning that automatically does a lot of the daily operations, Teams almost comes alive, giving us the best experience. For an example, have a look at the background noise feature in the video [mm:ss]<span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="Built-in noise reduction! See the recording to experience" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/54922iAE7A856733D205EC/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="NoiseReduction.png" alt="Built-in noise reduction! See the recording to experience" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Built-in noise reduction! See the recording to experience</span></span></P> <H2>Actionable IT Insights</H2> <P><STRONG>Actionable IT Insights</STRONG> is all about giving IT operations the best metrics possible to help guide users to use Microsoft Teams and mobile meetings the best way. Many users even only use video and voice from PC and mobile when not in the office, making them believe that the tool itself is the issue for why the experience is bad. By bringing these metrics out into the light and making them available for IT enables them to give the correct advice for their users. For example, don’t rely on your favorite coffee show network for the next meeting, or try to reduce the network load from other home devises when having the meeting with their team. Anther common issue is doing meetings with a laptop docked, where audio is coming from the screen, while mic is present below the lid on the other side of the desk…<span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="Identify issues using Call Quality Dashboard" style="width: 999px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/54923i78CED2799071E5D2/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="Call QualityDashboard.png" alt="Identify issues using Call Quality Dashboard" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Identify issues using Call Quality Dashboard</span></span></P> <H1>Microsoft Teams optimized devices</H1> <P>Microsoft Teams are also supported by a range of different devices, and for the optimal experience it’s highly recommended to get a device that is Teams certified. The figure below shows the range of what is available. Note that Cortana is not available for now but should be there soon. From the personal workplace you have when on the road, all the way into the office and your desk and finally into the meeting room. Teams again shows how it is built around the vision of creating the best collaboration experience possible.</P> <P>For a good overview, have a look at <SPAN><A href="#" target="_blank">https://office.com/teamdevices<span class="lia-inline-image-display-wrapper lia-image-align-center" image-alt="Teams are available on a range of devices" style="width: 800px;"><img src="https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/54924iAF07CD602927F23F/image-size/large?v=v2&amp;px=999" role="button" title="TeamsDevices.png" alt="Teams are available on a range of devices" /><span class="lia-inline-image-caption" onclick="event.preventDefault();">Teams are available on a range of devices</span></span></A></SPAN></P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <H1>Summary of features</H1> <P>It’s all about keeping thing as smoot as possible, giving the end users a great experience.
