Community Manager

Have you ever had a question about a product or feature, and you wished you could get an answer straight from the source? With the AMA (Ask Microsoft Anything) events we host across the Tech Community, you get a chance to engage with product engineers and team members for a live hour of Q&A. During this hour we get to dive deep into product updates and the newest features being released.

 

Recently we held a  Microsoft Exchange AMA, and before that, we hosted a live hour with folks from the Microsoft Information and Protection team. We believe connecting you directly to the people who build the products you use every day increases transparency, earns trust, and cultivates a healthy community for everyone.

Those answering your questions have found great value in it as well! Laurie Pottmeyer from Microsoft Teams stated “As a community manager, it’s awesome for me to have opportunities like this to connect our community-at-large directly with our engineering team – this time is invaluable for our internal team.  Not only do they get to answer questions and share information on their own area of expertise, it gives our team insight into what our users are saying.”

Curious about how you can contribute to our next AMA? Simply join us during the hour and ask your question by starting a new conversation. Our Tech Community team partners with the product team to ensure each question is looked at and discussed.


Our next AMA will be a Microsoft Teams AMA on December 12th at 9:00AM PT! Will you be there?
