Upcoming webinars to register for

Even though Microsoft Ignite 2017 finished up a few weeks ago, there’s still a lot of information for people to get through.

I’ve partnered up with a couple of very smart people for a couple of action-packed webinars.

On October 31st @ 10:30am AEST tune in for a Microsoft Ignite 2017 recap. This will largely be focused on Office 365 and surrounding technologies and will be co-presented by fellow MVP Darrell Webster.

And on November 7th @ 10:30am AEST tune in for a webinar busting the myths around Microsoft Teams and Skype for Business co-presented by Damien Margaritis who is a Microsoft Certified Master for Lync (the predecessor to Skype for Business).

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.
