Sketchnote from Office 365 Saturday Melbourne

This past Saturday I presented at Office 365 Saturday in Melbourne, Australia on the topic of “how to make all the Office 365 components work for you”. This was similar to the presentation given at the Digital Workplace Conference in Sydney a few weeks back, but with a few improvements and tweaks.

During the presentation, Rebecca Jackson created this amazing sketchnote of my key points that I simply had to share:

Why the big fuss about guest access in Microsoft Teams?

I’ve spent a fair portion of my time this week using, covering, and discussing guest access in Microsoft Teams.

A number of customers I work with had previously been reluctant to implement Teams as their logic (which I don’t disagree with) was that it simply introduced another tool – which while a more streamlined and integrated interface, still relied on users switching back to their current tools when communicating with external parties.

However now that guest access is available that last roadblock is gone.

Reflecting on a number of conversations with customers, fellow MVPs, and other IT pros – I wrote a piece on the AvePoint blog site explaining how big of a deal guest access in Microsoft Teams really is.
