Picture this: it’s January 2019, and you’ve made a resolution to be more tidy this year. You’ve just hidden a bunch of old chats in Microsoft Teams, but alas! You need to reference one of them and cannot find it again for the life of you. Fear not! We’ll walk through how to hide and unhide chats in this blog post.
One very cool feature I recently discovered was the ability to send snippets of code in Microsoft Teams where the formatting is preserved and even enhanced with syntax highlighting, the option to wrap text, and more!
Don’t forget! Skype for Business is being replaced with Microsoft Teams over time. Please see the following Microsoft articles for more information:
You can specify the “Coexistence Mode” for Teams and S4B for your organization by accessing the Teams & Skype for Business Admin Center (more on that in the previous blog post)–or access it directly by going to admin.teams.microsoft.com.
Microsoft has begun to move MS Teams’ Settings over to its administration portal, accessible from the Office 365 Portal or directly by navigating to https://admin.teams.microsoft.com after logging into the Office 365 Portal.
One of my favorite new [to me] discoveries in Microsoft Teams is the Planner. The Planner was clearly designed with collaboration in mind, giving you the ability to assign owners to different tasks. However, It works JUST as well as a personal or non-collaborative planner, and I’ve actually started to use it heavily for my own work. I love it! If you’re interested in giving it a spin, keep on reading.
Back in October, I wrote a post about Microsoft Teams guest access/access for external users. Previously, you could only add guests whose email was associated with an Office 365 account, which really limited the Guest feature. I was so pleased to see that they recently announced that FULL guest access is rolling out to all organizations beginning March 5! This means that any user–whether they use Outlook.com or Gmail.com or their own domain–can be added as a guest to Microsoft Teams. No Office 365 account required!
To enable this feature and find out how to add guests to a Team, please check out this post from a few months back.
