I would like to introduce you to Kathrin. Kathrin works in a medium-sized company called Spectrum Inc and has a computer department that has “booked a plan” at Microsoft based on current conditions and information researched on the internet.
Now at Kathrin’s workplace there is Teams installed and it starts every time the PC is powered up. She has also received some meeting requests, made ad hoc video calls and seen that new teams are obviously forming at the left edge of the screen — almost every day the list grows. There is also talk of channels.
Somehow, she finds the user interface confusing. Finally, she waited for an information and at some point asked her colleague where it would stay. He then said “I sent you that in the team.” By the time she found it, the info had already lapsed. So now she had two places where information was stored on the same subject. This annoyed her, because Teams should help organize information and find content everywhere. But somehow it didn’t work.
What Kathrin has already stated: If the network strikes, nothing works. Teams notizes: They are offline. Rien ne va plus, finito, game over. No content, no chats, no channels.
So after Kathrin has gained her first experiences, she would really like a training. Unfortunately, there was only one non-binding information from the computer. “The application is intuitive” — that didn’t really help. Good — then just self-study in the home office.
Join Kathrin on her journey through Teams and learn step by step with her!
The secret: Slash!
Kathrin’s colleague Alfred has been working with Microsoft Teams for a long time and has become an in-house insider tip. He always tells everyone who has questions about Teams: Did you ask the slash? He always smiles meaningfully. When she first heard this answer, she looked at him in disbelief: “The slash?” Alfred said: “Enter the slash at the top of the search box. Then you know what I mean. ”
Said, done. The result is surprising:
