Describe most common use cases, and best practices
I see that some people are already deep into MS Teams. However before we jump into MS Teams, we want to see some use cases and how to use Sharepoint, MS Office user groups, Skype for Business, and MS Teams in those use cases.
For instance a use case could be as follows:
The food processing plant wants to add 3 mixers. The plant manager needs to talk first with the CFO about its cost break even analysis and ROI, with purchasing about possible vendors and mixer costs, with plant people about installation, training and usage, and with the warehouse manager about increased storage needs.
How will IT use all its software tools to facilitate the collaboration and communication of this project?
In SP online, you could set up a team subsite for this project with a discussion forum, doc lib, team calendar, Office 365 user group, skype for business group with chat, etc.
Now comes MS Teams. How does it fit in? How to use it such that we keep structure in our information storage and collaboration. MS Teams looks a bit messy. SP online is more structured with subsites.
Thanks for your help. MS Teams is a very good start but MS Office 365 needs more structure. Tools all over like a workshop that is not well organized.
This is GREAT feedback. Thank you! We’re working on a blog series and we’ll be sure to include use cases, thanks to your feedback.
Meanwhile, please see this website for adoption and best practices for Teams: www.successwithteams.com
Let me know if you need anything else!
We currently represent a Government IT department (Provincial Parliament in South Africa). We are using Teams predominantly in our remote work scenario since Covid 19 took stage. We have had great success with introducing Teams as a vehicle to facilitate our Parliamentary Sittings and meetings for Members of Parliament and staff. It works very well but for a few feature issues:
Raise your hand feature:
• Very good feature which predictably organizes the sequence of input from meetings.
• Issue raised: For Attendees joining the meeting, there is no sequence of “raising the hand” to let the Chairperson know the order of input. The one solution is to make all the attendees presenters or participants in the meeting, but this is often very inefficient during a meeting. The sequential order should follow the list into the Attendees list to keep uniformity for input patterns.
So, have you published any use cases for "Teams" already?
Where can i find them?
Thanks a lot in advance!
