It is that time of year again – when we are all getting ready to head to Orlando to learn about all things Microsoft. I am excited about next week and hoping to make the most of things while in Orlando! I’ve listed all the details for my sessions below and I would love to meet more of the community, so if you want to sync up, leave a comment or find me on twitter (@jennifermason) and we can set up a time to meet in the community lounges.
Here is a quick list of the sessions I will be presenting and where you can find me next week:
Pre-Day (Sunday) : The SharePoint mobile and intelligent intranet: Empowering you, your teams, and your organization
Join the SharePoint product group and top MVPs for a deep dive into best practices for building an intranet with SharePoint that empowers you, your teams and your organization. Understand how team sites, communication sites, personalized experiences and mobile apps can be used to support collaboration, communication and engagement. We cover the “big picture” so you can make informed decisions about how to best drive digital transformation with SharePoint and related technologies including OneDrive, Office Delve, Microsoft PowerApps, Microsoft Flow, Yammer, Power BI, Outlook Groups and Microsoft Teams.
Wednesday 12:45 pm W205: Understanding your collaboration options in Office 365
Have you noticed that you now have multiple ways to connect and collaborate in Office 365? Teams, Groups, SharePoint, Yammer, email – how do you provide guidance to your users so that they can make good choices? Too much choice can lead to chaos, while not enough choice can create too much friction for effective collaboration to happen. This session provides guidance and a framework to help you make the right choices for your organization to help your users get real work done in a hyper-connected world. We look at some of the metrics that matter, aspects of your culture to evaluate, and how to manage the type of content each method of collaboration supports.
Thursday 10:20 am – Expo Theater 1 : Building a unified experience across Office 365
This session explores creating a unified collaboration experience using Microsoft Teams, Groups and Sites. There are so many different ways that a team can collaborate and work together. With so many options, how do you know what to use, and when? Sometimes the greatest results can be found when you use the best of all of them. We cover:
- Using a Group Calendar to track major milestones and deadlines
- Using Planner to manage large team projects and efforts
- Using Teams for persistent, searchable team conversations and discussion
- Using Modern Document Libraries to organize and structure reusable templates
- Using Teams to jump into additional products (Planner, Power BI, SharePoint Libraries)
I hope to see you there!
