Update to Microsoft Teams Makes Multi-Conversations Even Easier

By Ingram Leedy on July 13, 2020

Microsoft Teams, at its core, is a multi-tasking application. Whether you want to chat, conference, or maybe just share your screen with you coworkers and clients, Microsoft Teams includes all of this functionality in one place.  However, for an application that is built on multi-tasking it wasn’t until recently that it allowed you to view more than one screen at a time. Meaning in the past you had to click out of your current conversations in order to view a different one. Well those days are now gone and pop-out chats are here to let you view multiple conversations at once. For those of you who are daily users of Microsoft Teams, then you already know how much time this is going to save you.  For those who aren't so familiar with Microsoft Teams, let's just say this is huge improvement on the ease of use for the application.

By Ingram Leedy on July 6, 2020

In our previous video we discussed how the chat feature in Microsoft Teams is, what we believe, the best way to familiarize yourself with the application.  There is a lot more functionality inside of chat than meets the eye and the file transfer capability is one that should not be overlooked.

New to Microsoft Teams? Start a Chat

By Ingram Leedy on July 1, 2020

When we train our clients on how to use Microsoft Teams, we always tell them the same thing when it comes to getting started. Start a chat.  For many, the chat functionality in Microsoft Teams is identical to other chatting applications they use in their private lives, such as Whatsapp, Facebook Messenger, or even just texting from your phone. So, you can see why chat where we like to start.
