Creating Future-Focused Collaboration with Office 365

Tuesday, December 8, 2020

Time: 11:45 - 1:15 PM

The Office 365 Tools – SharePoint, Teams, etc. – provide us with all the tools necessary to collaborate effectively, but with little to no guidance. In this session, we create the perfect collaboration environment for distributed teams by providing customized file sharing, easy navigation to essential tools, and communication channels that everyone will flock to. Office 365 requires strong governance and setup, and you will be given the tools to do exactly that. Learn about:

  • Creating Office 365 Groups and Controlling Permissions for Members
  • Setting up Effective Document Co-authoring
  • Creating Custom Views and Navigation in SharePoint
  • Embedding Useful Features in SharePoint Home Pages
  • Adding Custom Tabs to Microsoft Teams
  • Setting Up Channel-Based Communication Threads
