Posting code snippets to Microsoft Teams

image

If you want to post a snippet of code to Microsoft Teams go to the Conversations tab and then select the Format text icon as shown above.

image

From this expanded dialog box select the Code icon as shown.

image

This should display a new dialog like shown above.

image

If you select the options in the top right you will see a huge range of code selections displayed as shown.

In the above case, I have select PowerShell and you can see that it formats and colours the code snippet for me automatically making it much easier to read.

image

You can now post the result and that will be added to the Teams Conversations as shown above. You will see that it even automatically add line numbers, which is very handy.

Thus, if you are going to post code into Microsoft Teams Conversations, make sure you do it via the Format Text option so that it is formatted in a way that makes it more readable.

Teams resource information from SharePoint site

image

Hopefully you know that when you create a Microsoft Team you get a range of resources automatically provisioned, including a SharePoint Site, group mailbox and calendar, Planner and more.

If you mouse over the icon for the Microsoft Team in the SharePoint that was created as part of that Team you’ll see a nice summary of the Team’s resources as shown. Clicking on this small icon will take you direct to the Team, the Team inbox, calendar, notebook, SharePoint site, Planner, etc.

image

If you leave your mouse there for a little longer a more extensive card will appear, as shown above. You will notice the option to Follow in inbox at the the top.

image

If you scroll right to the bottom of this card you’ll find a Show more option which, when selected, will display even more information about the Team as shown above.

So to get some handy short cuts to all your Microsoft Teams resources, just roll your mouse over the icon.

Need to Know Podcast–Episode 189

This is our follow up episode with Marcus Dervine from Webvine speaking about Digital Transformation. We continue with the transformation pillars that Marcus has outlined in his as the road to successful adoption of technologies like Office 365. Of course Brenton joins me again to catch you up on all the cloud news. We’ve tried to keep the update as short as we can as we noticed that the episodes are getting longer. We’ll do a deeper dive into updates in the next episode as we wanted to make sure there was plenty of time for our guest.

Join my free Microsoft Team

image

A while ago I create a free Yammer network for people to see what Yammer is all about as well as share Microsoft Cloud information. Since then, Microsoft has announced that it is making a version of Teams freely available, so I thought why not do the same there as well.

So I have gone out and created a free Microsoft Team which you are more than welcome to join. All you need to do is send me an email (director@ciaops.com) and I’ll arrange an invite for you that will allow access.

I think making a free version of Teams is great move by Microsoft and will allow more people to see what Teams is all about without the need for Office 365.

Of course, you can go out and create your own free Microsoft Team but hopefully, if we can get some people into this free Team I have created, you’ll get a better idea of exactly how it works with a group of people.
