If you are using the Windows Virtual Desktop Spring 2020 release with Azure Resource Manager objects (in Public Preview at the time of writing) then click here for details about how to connect this to your Sentinel workspace as the process and logs differ.

Whiteboarding and Brainstorming in Microsoft Teams

Most projects have a cycle – from initial idea or problem to solution design, implementation, and completion. In the solution design phase, getting to the best outcome requires keeping an open mind, getting feedback as broadly as you can, and then systematically evaluating and iterating towards the best solution. Towards this end, bringing stakeholders together into a room to brainstorm, sketch ideas, or do sticky-note exercises to gather feedback can be useful for getting a bigger picture. In a remote working environment, many software tools can provide similar support, with the additional benefits of being digital – and that includes being connected with conversations and closely available within Microsoft Teams. As you tackle projects in a remote working environment, experiment with different tools to collect and operationalize ideas, brainstorming, and feedback.
