Getting the Most out of Microsoft Teams

The need to enable remote work has never been more important than it is today.


After viewing the webinar recording below, please spare a few seconds of your time to help us make these webinars even better. Many thanks!

The need to enable remote work has never been more important than it is today. Microsoft Tech for Social Impact is holding a special webinar with Nethope members to review best practices, upcoming features, advanced use cases, and answer any questions you have to ensure you are getting the most out of your Teams deployment.
NetHope Member questions addressed in this session:

  • Breakout rooms functionality
  • Does Teams have a limit of 250 users on a single webinar/meeting?
  • Can we have Teams show more than 4 video participants at once?
  • Demonstrate various Search functions and shortcuts to increase productivity and findability (e.g., using slash commands, @filtering, bookmarking, etc.).
  • Could we see Microsoft produce more NGO-related use cases.  For example, how to best configure a Team for a global multi-country project?  Here is an example from our FASTER CoP who adopted Teams quickly and has pushed us on functions like External Guests, Private Channels & Privatizing content, and team configuration (e.g., Channel for Each Country vs. a Team for each country?) – they opted for Channels but it was a big discussion other project teams grapple with.
  • Instant Polls within the Chat stream of a meeting  (not just in a Channel)
  • Easy meeting break-out sessions function (we're using work-arounds)
  • More Teams Admin training e.g., best practices for managing a Team site (especially for complex sites like the example above with global multi-site teams)
  • Previously, Private Channels. Thank you!

Q&A Document

  • Since more questions were asked during the webinar than there was time to answer, a Q&A document was generated. Should you have additional questions, fee free to contact Jeremy Pitman at Microsoft
