WRK106 - Office 365 Feature Explosion: What should you be using?

The pace of change in Office 365 continues to accelerate. Over the last few years we've seen the introduction of a multitude of new features and offerings like Teams, Groups, PowerApps, Stream, and now Forms. All these new icons in the Office 365 App Launcher provide both a promise and a challenge for organizations. Some of the new offerings appear to overlap or replace existing offerings and in some cases there are so many new icons available in the Office 365 App Launcher that many users are wondering which they should be using. In this workshop we will review each of the icons presented in the average App Launcher. We'll demo the all but the most common apps, discuss the business case for their use, and explain the administrative controls available for controlling their usage. Here is the list of offerings that will be explored: • Yammer • Groups • Teams • Delve • Sway • Planner • PowerApps/Flow • Stream • Video • Forms • ToDo • Kaizala

TMS103 - Teams AND Yammer? Yes Please! A case study.

“What to use when?” is a phrase so often used when talking about Office 365 that it may have set the record for blog posts, conference sessions and heated debates. Many thought that Microsoft had moved on from making big bets on Yammer given the significant focus and attention on Microsoft Teams in recent years, so the announcements about “the new Yammer” at last year’s Ignite conference may have come as a surprise. Almost instantly the “when should I use this versus Teams” started up again. As an organization, AvePoint is heavily reliant on Teams for it’s day to day operations, but this session will go deep into the “why” and “how” AvePoint made the decision to move it’s thriving and active knowledge communities from Teams to the new Yammer. Attendees will learn the logic that prompted the decision, the steps taken to get there, and how Yammer was configured and managed to create a broader and more effective knowledge-sharing mechanism that is relied on throughout the organization. Just as important, we’ll detail how the organization created internal clarity for users to understand the hand-offs and co-existence of these two conversational platforms within it’s everyday collaboration
