ShortCut Shari

You might say I’m a cross between Dear Abby…and the Crabby Office Lady…I miss the Crabby Office Lady!  While my crabbiness varies depending on the day…my passion for helping you to work smarter and not harder only grows with the knowledge I gain every single day.  So STUMP me!  Ask me questions!  It’s my opportunity to learn, too.  Having said that, I might now just opened a can of worms, but I welcome the challenge.

They call me ShortCut Shari because I love keyboard shortcuts, but there are so many other ways to get from A to B more quickly in your daily job…so let’s get to work!

O365 Update: Microsoft Teams is ready for your Organization

Microsoft has announced that Microsoft Teams is now complete with the equivalent meetings and calling capabilities offered in Skype for Business as part of Office 365. This means that Teams now meets the messaging, meeting, and calling needs of most Office 365 customers. We encourage you to upgrade at this time.

They have released tools that will make it easy for you to upgrade your users to Teams. You can access them in the Microsoft Teams & Skype for Business Admin Center.

How does this affect me?

Microsoft Teams offers private and group chat, voice, video and meetings, as well as file sharing, the ability to co-author documents and more, all within one application. Teams is becoming the core communications client in Office 365, replacing Skype for Business over time.

Once upgraded, Teams will become your organization’s default client for chat, voice, video and meetings in Office 365.

What do I need to do to prepare for this change?
