Working from home with Microsoft Teams

While the world has been adapting to unprecedented changes due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, I’ve been counting my blessings. My family and I are all OK (so far at least!) and I have a job I love where I was already working from home. I was interviewed for the job using Skype for Business, and now my team works almost entirely using Microsoft Teams.

So at my manager’s suggestion, and in accordance with the internally published company policies on social media, my teammates and I decided to pitch in and share our favorite tips for working from home with Microsoft Teams. These are not official videos from Microsoft; they’re from some Microsoft employees acting as members of the community with a sincere desire to help out.

I made a playlist of our videos and am pleased to share it here. I’ll continue to add to this list over the coming weeks. All videos are short – 2-8 minutes – so if you’re busy but hungry for knowledge, you can just stop by for a snack-sized nugget and when you’ve had enough, put it aside and come back later.

(NOTE: Embedded YouTube videos don’t seem to work reliably in some mobile clients, so I replaced the embed with the image above, which is linked directly to YouTube.)

If you like these videos, please check out our individual YouTube channels:

  • April Dunnam– April is an expert on the Power Platform (Power Apps, Power Automate, and Power BI), especially as it relates to Microsoft Teams. These tools empower low-code developers to build amazing solutions in SharePoint, Teams, and beyond
  • Rob Gates – Rob may be new to YouTube, but he’s no newbie when it comes to Microsoft 365 and Teams. He covers the breadth of the possibilities in Microsoft Teams, and brings a deep expertise in voice and Teams adoption. Check out his video on External vs. Guest access – such an important topic finally made clear!
  • Kevin Martins – Kevin is a Teams and Security expert whose videos focus on authentication, phishing prevention, and more. He also takes a unique perspective on helping partners build their business, and recently published a video/blog combo showing partners how to drive business with webinars
  • Matt Soseman– Matt is an expert on Microsoft cloud security, especially relating to Office 365 and Microsoft Teams. His videos cover a range of topics including Azure Active Directory, compliance, Cloud App Security, and more

And of course my YouTube channelis mostly on Office 365 development but lately I’ve included some Teams tips as well.

Thanks and I hope this is all very helpful!
