View the webinar recording below that includes live demonstrations of Microsoft Teams an extensive Q&A session. After viewing the webinar recording, please fill out our Webinar Evaluation Form.

Given the extensive use of Skype, Skype for Business, Yammer, Slack, WhatsApp, Sharepoint, and other group collaboration tools in the nonprofit sector, what does Microsoft Teams offer? In this webinar we will enjoy a presentation by, and conversation with, the Microsoft Teams product group.

Topics to be covered and questions to be answered:

  • The messaging/groupware/collaboration platform space is crowded: A short intro on where Microsoft Office 365 Teams fits in.
  • If your nonprofit is new to this space, where do you start?
  • For nonprofits already committed to the Microsoft platform, how do they plan their migration to Microsoft Teams? What to embrace, what to retire?
  • Mobile First: Group collaboration does not stop when we leave the office and the PC/Mac; how to continue the work on the road with iPhone, Android and other mobile devices?
  • Many NGOs and their IT staff suffer from sheer product exhaustion–so here’s another tool–what are the advantages that will drive folks to adopt? Is it time consuming, and expensive to migrate a global team?
  • Success stories in the nonprofit space: Many international NGOs work in resource constrained environments (poor connectivity). Is Microsoft Teams a solution here?

Join us on March 1 to get answers and join the discussion!
