We have switched standard teams call recordings to Onedrive from Classic Stream in advance of the New Stream rollout over the coming year.
A problem we are hearing is that some of our users are now finding content management very cumbersome. With the Classic Stream shared Storage platform and channels some of our R&D and Marketing teams liked the ability to tag their "teams recordings" within channels which gave them the ability to share content easily.
With the new approach of Storage being on an individual user basis and recordings now being held in different "OneDrive" folders -dependant on the user whom organised and initiated the recording -our teams are struggling with content being in multiple places and the additional time that is required to manage that content and share with specific teams and individuals.
We have offered solutions like users uploading content into their Stream channel but in the current working from home scenarios - due to the pandemic - users often find that video content can take a significant time to upload to shared Stream Channels due to fluctuating broadband upload speeds. Home based working is therefore causing even more impact to our users.
Whereas previously users just had to tag their videos to Stream channels they now have either the option of a timely upload to Stream or sending share links for Onedrive for the given content.
As different users are recording the meetings and multiple onedrives now form the data pool for team video content management is now a chore.
Would it be possible for Classic Stream (pre Stream V2) to have the option to have onedrive pointers/links added into channels - or other mechanisms - so that the OneDrive content can be surfaced from the one centralised Streams Channel as was the case with the centralised storage model? Team members OneDrive Recordings Folders could have links added into one or more channels
I understand that going forward these maybe some of the options in Stream V2 as Stream serves as a layer to the underlying 365 applications and content.
In the interim though we are in situation where our users have now lost functionality as a result of the platform changes and the data migration that is required.
Several of our users have advised they now have the additional burden of several hours of content admin to perform their roles and R&D and marketing are losing Insights and valuable information as data is now difficult to centralise and be shared so easily with multiple stakeholders/consumers.
