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.
As an HR, marketing or operational team member, you may have been confronted with situations where you need to set up individual Teams sessions for a series of colleagues.
Wouldn’t it be nice if you could just create and describe those sessions in an Excel table and use that table to create all sessions automatically in Teams at the push of a button?
Well… you can! Power Automate makes it easy to set up automations like this one.
Woops! You’ve just noticed a glaring typo or sent wrong information in a Team or chat. Don’t panic – you can still correct the error.
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.
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.
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.
Not all information in a SharePoint Team site is useful or should be accessible for all members of a team in MS Teams. A solution for this would be to expand the Team site with extra libraries that are only accessible for certain members.
