Security awareness in Microsoft 365 starts with the user
Before the cloud era, corporate data were managed by trained IT specialists. Then came the cloud, which has led to a major change: today, the end users themselves are largely responsible for their own data. This shift does come with a downside – it wouldn’t be the first time that someone accidentally shares a document with the entire company when only the CEO was supposed to receive it.
It’s vital that employees are well informed about saving and sharing documents via cloud applications such as OneDrive, Teams or SharePoint.
Storing files in the cloud has its advantages: you can access them anywhere and it’s cheaper, safer and more reliable. Instead of e-mailing a file to 10 people, you can now share it and let 10 people edit it. They can even all edit the document at the same time!
But how do you make sure you don’t lose track of which files you’ve shared, and with whom?
We’ve all been there: while you’re chatting with some colleagues, you suddenly realise that one colleague isn’t in the conversation yet. You could add this person by using the @ function, but then they wouldn’t see anything that was said before they were added. Luckily, Teams can help you out here.
During our trainings for new Power BI users, we often notice that they don’t always realise how much creating a correct data model could help them. For example:
- Data are read quicker
- Calculations are executed faster
People often import data straight from the source into the model, map out the necessary relationships and start creating the visuals.
Say goodbye to copy-pasting text! Would you like to share information from an e-mail with your Team in a more efficient way? Just forward it to the Teams channel you’d like to share it in.
COVID-19 has impacted us all on a personal as well as a professional level. Over the past months, many organisations have actively started working online and rolled out Teams. Unfortunately, efficiently transitioning into a digital workplace often proves to be a challenge, and some of the advantages offered by the newly implemented tools remain unused.
Teams is available in three versions: you can install it on your PC, go to www.office.com and log in with your O365 account to access the Teams web app, or install the app on your smartphone of tablet.
