When to choose a SharePoint Site, a Teams Channel, or a Yammer Community

There are so many collaboration tools in Microsoft 365. So how do you decide which one you need to use? What are the use cases for SharePoint Online sites?

From Zero to Hero: how to successfully apply Microsoft Adoption tools to your project

It has been common knowledge for a long time, that the rollout of a technology tool or solution is more successful and drives higher ROI if it gets widely adopted by the business. Since the release of Microsoft Teams a few years ago, the topic "Adoption & Change Management" has enjoyed renewed focus. Microsoft has invested heavily in the creation of fantastic content to drive Adoption. The treasure trove of Microsoft Adoption tools can be found at https://adoption.microsoft.com/. It is free and there is plenty!

In a perfect world, we could apply all of them, but in the real world of resource, time, and awareness constraints it is important to know to pick the right tools to be successful. So where should one start?

During this session, Antje Lamartine is going to do a deep dive into the key Microsoft Adoption tools, the key aspects of Change Management, and provide examples when to use which Adoption tool based on her many years of experience accompanying technology implementations. You will walk away with her top 3 pro tips that will help you become your organization's Adoption hero. Your manager will thank you for the increased ROI you will have helped achieve!

Bringing together search, classification and retention in Office 365

Refinable search is one of the most valuable features in O365. Search is dramatically improved by the use of metadata and an organisational classification model. Records management is also dependent on these things.

This session presents a unified information architecture model which coordinates classification, search and retention labels - and shows you how it's configured. This session is essential if you want to do records management in O365 or give your search a boost. The same information architecture applies for native information management in O365 using retention labels or if you plan on using third-party records management solutions such as provided by AvePoint, RecordPoint or Gimmal.

This session is targeted at solution and information architects, information & records managers, and business stakeholders responsible for information strategy.

Boost Company Training & Knowledge Share with Stream

It is hard and very expensive to send users to training. Between getting behind on their day to day tasks, they have to deal with the email and phone call interruptions when issues arise they don’t get to truly focus and retain the content. Online training is an easier solution as the users can block small pieces of time for the sessions but they can still be rather costly and the content is generic to train the masses and not focused on any one type of organizations usage. However, what if you could build your own training site, videos and your users are already familiar with the look and feel of the application or system the video pertains too? You can utilize Stream to provide these options to your organization and much more.

This session will be jam packed with the ins and outs of Microsoft Stream, how to utilize in the new era and classic SharePoint sites. We will begin by setting up Stream channels, uploading videos, recording videos, ensuring they are accessible to the right individuals, setup a training site and watch the magic all unfold. However, we won’t stop there as there are plenty of other use cases for Microsoft Stream to be discussed and demoed like end user knowledge sharing along with the most impressive Live Events!! Come join the fun and let’s figure out great ways to make training and knowledge sharing easy and impactful.
