i speak with MVP and Digital Workplace expert Rebecca Jaskson. Rebecca is fascinated by what makes people and organisations tick. She specialises in the digital workplace, employee experience and change management. We do a deep dive into the main collaboration tools that Microsoft provides such as SharePoint, with an especial focus on the value of the modern Intranet.
There is also a round up of the latest Microsoft Cloud news at the front of the episode.

It’s about time we revisited what Microsoft Teams is all about and how to get the most from this major service in Microsoft 365. Join us for a deep dive into what Teams is and how to make the most from it in your business. I’ll warn you that it probably going to challenge the way you think about collaboration. There is also plenty of news that I’ll cover as well as open Q and A for any questions you may have.
You can register for the regular monthly webinar here:
A New conversation button has appeared for me inside my tenant both on the desktop and on the web as shown. This is very much like the button you in the mobile experience of Teams.
One of the major challenges with conversations or chats in Teams was the simplicity that you could create new conversation threads. This simplicity was its own worse enemy unfortunately, because what you’d find is that people would post new message threads rather than posting to the current or existing one. Many users didn’t notice that fact and you ended up with many, many disjointed conversations. That reduced Teams chat benefits and effectiveness.
This New conversation button will ensure that any existing reply will stay in the existing thread and you’ll only get a new conversation by pressing that button. It also makes the interface between, desktop, mobile and web more consistent.
Look out for the New conversation button coming to your Teams environment soon.
In this episode I speak with MVP Megan Strant all about adoption. However, in this discussion we focus on the human side of adoption and change management which can be really challenging for many organisations to successfully manage. Megan shares her experiences and provides some handy insight into how we can improve our chances of successful adoption of Microsoft 365.
Of course, there is always Microsoft Cloud news which I’ll bring you up to date with. We will be expecting a whole lot more once Microsoft Ignite starts, so stay tuned here for all the latest!
