The importance of Windows 10, OneDrive, SharePoint and Microsoft Teams together – session from Microsoft Ignite 2019

At Microsoft Ignite I presented a short session on something that I had been thinking for a couple of years as relatively obvious but from many conversations with clients it had become obvious to me that it was not so.

What I’m referring to is a feature called OneDrive Automount, and how this small setting can help with migrating files to SharePoint Online as well as the user experience when using Microsoft Teams.

In fact, back in June of this year fellow MVP Alistair Pugin and I discuss this small but important piece of functionality on our 365 Unplugged show:

In this session at Ignite, I talk through the dependences of Microsoft Teams on SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business, and at a minimum build 1709 of Windows 10.

I also demonstrate how using Microsoft Endpoint Manager (formerly known as Microsoft Intune) these can all be stitched together.

The session was actually repeated the following day due to the volume of registrations for the first session, so here is a link to the second session which is largely the same but probably a bit better as I had made some tweaks from the previous day’s session: https://myignite.techcommunity.microsoft.com/sessions/89229

 

365 Unplugged: Surface, Earbuds, and Microsoft Teams

In this episode, Alistair Pugin and I talk about the recent Surface event where Microsoft unveiled the new Surface Earbuds – and whether they (and other earbuds) are suitable devices for use with Microsoft Teams calls:

The video we’re referring to is this one, and you’ll note at the 0:45 mark where it refers to answering calls, the Microsoft Teams logo shows prominently before the other Office product logos appear together.
