Excellent! I'm an early adopter of the Surface Hub and we have (5) total right now, also looking to purchase 15-20 more in the next year with some pending features. We have (3) 55" and (2) 84" units, and we use them allll the time. The adoption rate of these units, compared to the typical "smart board" or VTC units in other rooms is crazy - people just walk up and start using it. There are some day-1 features that are lacking, and we are really hoping to get some updates soon on this as they are pretty significant in our workflow. Please (MS) don't take this as a dig, just as a serious point of interest if not a linchpin in getting our internal customers to purchase these things. Main item - whiteboard needs some additional functionality and needs to support bi-directional input from all attendees whether the other attendees are on Skype for Business (windows or mac, via that Whiteboard) or via another Surface Hub joined into the same SfB meeting with the whiteboard app. This is so powerful when in the room, but having a collaborative experience when you have other Surface Hub-enabled rooms, or even Surface Pro/Book/Studio attendees that also have touch/stylus capacity; it is just a major issue that needs to be addressed. There are also little nice-to-have features that would be nice in this Whiteboard app, such more colors in the palette, ability to expand the canvas or move it around with limitless scale or size, or change the brush size or type. Lots of nice-to-haves, but generally the basic out of the box is pretty great and we use it all the time. We also really want to see the use of MS built-in apps (like OneDrive for Business, PowerBI, etc.) to have the ability to logon with NFC, which other 3rd party apps are already supporting. This would be a huge benefit to saving and interacting with files stored elsewhere on O365 services. Again, not a deal-breaker - we can logon with the keyboard/mouse, but NFC would be a huge win and easy functionality to really Wow people with the ease of use. Those are my opening thoughts, but really I am psyched to see the MS Surface product group reach out and create a community base like this. Who else already has Surface Hubs, and what are you experiences like? Who is 'on the fence' and wants to know more about the capability and how it can deliver on the hype? I'm sure the community can share great stories with you about how they work in our daily lives already, but I'd love to hear what other people are thinking about the products as well. Cheers!

Is there a dummy guide to setup Surface Hub as we are struggling to get it working correctly.

Have managed to get this into Domain Join, but how do we set this up correctly with O365 so we can get the meeting acceptance working. 

 

Skype and Connect is working.

 

Ta!

Hi Hitesh, good day.

Have you tried following the steps in the Surface Hub Admin Guide? https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/surface-hub/

 

If you have, more information is needed from you to understand the errors you're seeing and the best way is to contact Customer Support to explain your case. Find information on how to contact here: https://www.microsoft.com/surface/en-us/support/contact-us-business-surface-hub

 

Thank you,

Nydia

We just installed our first three surface hubs and are looking for training resources.  Can someone recommend MS partners that provide Surface Hub training in the South Florida market?

Hi Ivan, great news!

The first thing to do is to download the "A Surface Hub Tour" app from the Microsoft Store. That will give your users a fun way to get started and learning from the Hub, I've just released an update to that yesterday. In terms of partners, my suggestion is to please contact Collabtech: Joey Morley CTG <joey.morley@collabtechgroup.com>.

 

Hope this helps!

Nydia
