Hello my Friends... Spring is here in Seattle and are looking forward to our Champion's calls today at 8am and 5pm PST. As always our links for the calls are the same:
https://aka.ms/O365ChampsCallAM for the 8am PST call
https://aka.ms/O365ChampsCallPM for the 5pm PST call
This month we'll be discussing the new Training for Office 365 including the Custom Learning site template which was just published. Looking forward to seeing you there!

Hi there @Karuana Gatimu
Is there somewhere I can sign up for notifications about these meetings, and have them scheduled in my diary without having to check the Champions Corner each month?
(P.S. I am in Brisbane, Australia, so may have to watch replays, but it would be good to have reminder in my calendar!)

There is a new feature on the page to subscribe to the upcoming events, thanks @Karuana Gatimu !

Karuana - do we need to have all Modern SP sites in order to use the Custom Learning site template? I thought it was only if you were installing the website and you're installing the whole site you can be in Classic.
Has anyone installed it yet?

@karenwI tried to install it, but it failed the first time, i tried again and it worked. It is a Modern site. The instructions state " Help your organization get more from Microsoft services by implementing Custom Learning for Office 365. This digital, customizable, learning solution streams on-demand content for Office 365 services to your end users. The convenient playlist format allows employees to improve their skills on their timetable and at their pace. The modern SharePoint Online site also allows you to add your own content to create a complete modern training portal."
More details are at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office365/customlearning/

@Dean Gross Thanks Dean. I got the site installed and it worked fine in our environment. My question was regarding classic vs modern sites - our SharePoint intranet is created in classic and a couple of people had told me we couldn't install the Custom Learning site unless we converted to modern, which isn't the case. Right now I'm customizing it and just about ready to launch!

@karenwglad I could help.
FYI, you can mix and match classic and modern sites in a Tenant. In fact, you can create modern pages in a site that was originally created with classic team site template. Be careful when someone tells you that something can't be done. With the rapid pace of change, things that could not be done last year may very well be doable now.
If you need a second opinion, and you will, just post your questions in the appropriate group in this network and someone will usually answer
Hi @Karuana Gatimu This Champions page does not seem to be very regularly active-is there a more active page I can direct my Champions to so that they can keep up to date with the Champions calls and other new resources being posted?
