Be a Meetings Champion!

2019/08/05

Today was the MN Office 365 Users Group meeting and I had the honor to talk about being a Microsoft Teams Meeting Champion. During the presentation we reviewed a bunch of demostrations and more. But I wanted to give a quick outline to those who might download the before mentioned deck with some guidance.

Level Set

All too often people overlook the different types of meetings. Each has a specific purpose within an organization and not understanding why you might want to schedule a meeting in one particular way verses another can be difficult. So in the first section we discussed Scheduled vs Channel vs Ad-Hoc meetings. And because it is fun, we threw in the fourth type, Live Events because it is a type of meeting just very different.

The Demo

Here we go through the mechanics of the meeting. Here is the general outline I followed:

Pre-Meeting

  • Chat
  • Files
  • Meeting Options
  • Limitation (Meeting Guest) ..* If had a guest account, then could use that instead ..* Do not see the thread, even after they joined

During Meeting

  • Blur
  • Recording
  • Meeting Options
  • Chat
  • Live Captions
  • Whiteboard ..* No whiteboard for guests either!
  • Share (Including System Audio)
  • Notes ..* Guests can not see meeting notes during
  • Meeting Companion with Mobile Client

Post Meeting

  • Chat
  • Files
  • File Recording

What is New

Here we just reviewed what was demonstrated at Enterprise Connect, updated on Users Voice and other items that I knew we could discuss.
