As a Xylos Digital Coach, I’m often on the road to assist our customers. My schedule is managed by our Planning Coordinators through a system that synchronizes with my Outlook calendar. And while this method works, I’d prefer to be made aware of every new item they put on my schedule.

My colleague Kurt came up with an excellent solution: a Power Automate flow (or MS Flow) which sends out a Teams message whenever someone adds an appointment to my Outlook calendar. This flow only takes about 15 minutes to set up.

Ask your co-workers for approval with the Approvals app!

Imagine you’ve created a document that needs to be approved by 5 people. If you’re like most people, you’d probably contact these colleagues through e-mail or Teams to request their approval.

The downside of this method is that if one person doesn’t respond until 3 weeks later, you’ll have spent 3 weeks needlessly keeping this task in the back of your head, on top of everything else you’re working on.

Fortunately, Microsoft has come up with a helpful solution: the Approvals app.

You can add it to your Teams apps and pin it to request all future approvals through it. After you’ve installed the app, you can open it and view all your sent and received approval requests.
