As you adjust to the new normal of working from home, take heart—you’re not alone. Entire companies are doing the same thing, including one of technology’s biggest: Microsoft.
The major difference between your kitchen office and a global computing firm is that the pivots Microsoft makes are good news for all of us. Their Teams platform is a great tool for teleconferencing all on its own, but add compatibility with Outlook and you get a new favorite among business professionals in any number of fields. That’s why it’s more crucial than ever to get familiar with what these popular platforms can do.
Together, Teams and Outlook are greater than the sum of their parts, as you’ll learn in the Essential 2020 Microsoft Teams Training Course. Even if you’ve never opened a single video chat or Outlook email, this e-learning bundle will get you up to speed in time for your next meeting. It includes a full course on both Microsoft tools, highlighting what they can do to streamline business communication, no matter where your workforce is.
The training course on Teams covers online and desktop versions of the software. Within minutes, you’ll be able to find your way around the interface and set up your first online meeting; you can customize access for different Team members, set agendas, and seamlessly take notes during the meeting, easily and securely.
In the Outlook course, even longtime users will learn shortcuts that can make their inbox a lot more productive. Look for tips on flagging important emails and blocking spam. And, most importantly for the new remote workplace, you’ll be able to set up calendar items with direct links to Teams meetings.
