Microsoft Training Sessions

We would like to thank everyone that joined us and the Cleveland based Microsoft Trainers for our training sessions last week. Be on the look out for trainings in December and January!

We will post the recordings of the sessions once we receive them from the trainers. Thanks for your patience. In the mean time you can check out our Microsoft Training Sessions post.

Microsoft Updates

Did you know that Microsoft is constantly rolling out features for Office 365? Here are some of the newest and upcoming features you will see soon. We do not have any control when Microsoft releases updates.

  • New Microsoft Poll Feature in Teams: The new and improved polls in Teams are easier to use than ever before. Now, you can decide when to launch them during the session, how you will collect responses, and export your data from the polls.

These are just a few of the updates from Microsoft. Want to see more? Check out our Microsoft Updates post.
