Microsoft Teams is a chat-based hub for workgroups that is also the replacement for the Skype for Business Online client. Before you get started with voice and video communications, you must first create a framework for users to work within Teams. Setting up teams and channels is easy enough, but to run a successful deployment, you’ll need to know if you should limit who can create new teams, how to understand who's doing what inside teams, audit teams, whether to expire and archive old teams, and how to report Teams usage. Microsoft has some answers to help, but you might need to consider coming up with your own solutions. This session helps you understand the problems and come up with solutions that work for your company.
Like any technology, it takes people some time to understand its strengths and weaknesses and how best to manage a deployment. After 22 months in the wild, we should know what we are doing with Teams. What I want to do in this session is help you put some structure and control around your deployment of Teams so that you maximize the benefits that the technology can bring while minimizing the heartache. And believe me, if you don't pay attention to structure, Teams can become one big chaotic mess very quickly - and we don't want that, do we?
