Is actually your third appearance, here. Today isn't it my, third appearance yes the, podcast studio oh. Yeah. That's right you drag me into drag. Me to talk about this stuff at, Enterprise Connect that's right that's right but no one knows who I am so. They. Know who you are that's me but, for the 10, or 20 people out there who don't know who you are please, tell us what. You do here at Microsoft and how long you've been here doing it so, my name is Jamie Stark I've. Been, at Microsoft for, 12. Years and I. Started off in sales. Organization. Helping. Customers you, know figure out what they need to do with with different technologies. Pretty. Quickly found my way into marketing, and then, spent a good chunk of time looking, after the voice workload, for Skype for business and, before that it was called Lincoln before that it was called office communication server before that, live. Communications I was, I was there doing that that timers right right of the red the Delta between kind. Of live communication, server and the first office communication, server I got to I got to hop on to those so the crazy train, and. Then about a year ago, came, over to the engineering organization to. Start. Building stuff now. I'm in the Microsoft, team's engineering, organization, and a part of the group, that thinks about all the suffering, pros. You. Know we spend a lot of time with teams, kind. Of thinking, about the end user experience and. How how it can help with productivity and, I could help with groups and and it's just it it, really is transformational. Like there's just there, is so much that that you can do with this product and I happen, to work with that with a development organization, that is located in Vancouver and Canada and, so everything, that we do all of our specs all of our work all of our all. Of our you know kind of questions. About how to think, through stuff our collaboration, with the broader organization all. That happens through teams but, obviously. We, needed provide, for, admins, the ability to kind, of policy, and to manage and to look after all. That capability. Because different, companies are going to have different kind. Of business requirements, for the way that these tools operate, within there within the organization, and so that's. The set of tools that that, we're building or for IT pros to, be able to come in and kind, of policy and administer and manage and, do all the stuff that they need to do so, that way, teams works best for their org so, when you guys are writing your specs and designing. This new experience. What, are the problems, that you and pain, points that administrators. Have that you want to help solve you know probably the biggest thing that you, know from from a teams perspective, that we look after is. That you. Know in the past with teams, you. Would have the, ability to make changes, to the way the teams operates, but, those changes, are across. The entire tenant, earn across, the entire organization. So. If. You, for, example wanted, to add. The. Ability to let. People do fun you know jiff messages, in their in their chats and stuff you, could turn that on but it would be on for everybody and that may not be appropriate for your business right you may want to say oh hey I want to have you, know some folks have one experience and other folks have a different experience that's.

One Of the key things that were that we're bringing into the. New administration. Experience, here with Microsoft teams in Skype for business admin Center is to, be able to allow. Be. Able to allow customers to to. Really tune that experience, down, to a per user level, so instead of having settings, kind of always operate, at the tenant now we can say hey the lawyers in New York they, need to have a different, set of experiences than, the, developers, in Canada yeah, perfect. And so this new modern experience, or. Update experience, for administering, portal, can be applicable, down. To a person, or, a group of people an, organization. Etc yes totally so yeah so I can say stuff like hey, I want to have a policy that, that, impacts everybody, and that's kind of a default or a global policy and then I want to you know extract, you know from that group. Of users and I'm going to treat them differently and I'm gonna have a different kind of experience for that for, that group and so we're still very early on in, the in what, we're doing with the with the new admin Center but we're really excited about it and there and there's a ton of capability, that that. We've already brought. Severe, and, much more that's going to be that's going to be coming down the lines okay good, now what about so that's administering. And setting policies, on the user basis, what about reporting, does is a reporting, isolated, yeah so so today there's. A bunch of different tools that that, that are there for reports in an office 365 you, can have reports, in the office 365 admin, Center there's there's, kind of specific. Call quality reports, that, we put out for both Skype for business and teams and then, specifically. If you wanted to look into a single, call there's a call analytics. Capability. As well so, all of these disparate, kind. Of reporting solutions, exist in different places we're, working to bring all of those together within, the within, the new admin console we're not there quite yet we're. You know we're reporting is one of the things we're going to be looking at next but. The end goal is that you know whether it's kind, of manageability, or, administration, or, kind. Of monitoring, your your your tenant over time we want to have all of those functions, be, available in a single place the single, pane of glass is, that the, kind of the. Commentary. That that's used around the industry and. That's and that's really what we want to we want to provide you. Know there's there's, some sensitivity, of course to make sure that like things, that are kind of common across office, 365, those, still exist in the office 365 admin, Center but, anything that you need to do with respect to teams or Skype for business we, should be able to have that operational. Within the within the new admin Center ok perfect, well let's get into the show and tell portion, of. Graciously. Accepted, my request to give us a demo of what the admin portal looks like and so take. It away ok so. This. Is this is when I kind, of log in so the new admin portal this is what you're going to see I. Roll, into a dashboard now the dashboard is is. Pretty slim down at this point but the idea is over time we, want to have lots of of data, elements so we want to have lots of different types of reporting that are available within the dashboard. But. Today I've got the ability to to, kind of see some basic information about my organization, I can do. A quick, search across my tenant for users and I've got some down here at the bottom some links out to, some great help articles, and training for administrators, about what.

Happens With with Microsoft teams and so for, example with the user search if. I really quickly, want to, want. To do a substring, search you, know here I can I can very quickly type. In somebody's name and I can have them and I can have them come up and I can bang on to their their, user account and then I can instantly, drop into into. Their user account and then if, I head back to that dashboard you'll. See that my recent, search results, are there or I can go and I can drop into the, whole list of users that I have in the tenant one, of the things that we heard from from, customers is that hey, I want to reduce friction, in, in having you know really common tasks, and so one of those common tasks may be hey I want to get into a user and I want to you know and see what their configurations, about and so this is one way that I can that can really quickly go. And do that so if I if. I go and do a search for Molly again. Molly shows up you know super quick and then I can I can bounce right into this, is her. Detail. Page that kind of shows all, the information, that we have about her as a user yeah so in the case of like maybe a very high profile, person. In the organization you. Can. Quickly look them up look, at their policies and, make. Changes to that particular user right on the fly absolutely. Absolutely, so one of the things that one things I did when we when. We first started off here as I kind of hid the navigation, bar to kind of give a little more space to the main to the main area but I can go ahead and and blow, out that navigation, bar as well and, then, you can kind of see all the different all the different functions, that are available within. The within the admin console, right here so this is our dashboard and, if I want to go click on users you know so this is the list of all the users that I have in the tenant now I clicked, into users and they just showed up instantly, like, that's because it's cached it's because you know I was, cooking around here earlier and, so when, when you're you know often, doing this for your own tenant, yeah they'll be a little spanner and you'll probably see the spinner in some other areas here as we're, going and getting data from the backend and then having that and, having that rendered up here we also have a have. A great, substring. Search up, here too, so. If I just if, I just type a couple characters let's, try, Alex. That. I can you know again vo very quickly go, from all the users in my tenant down to the one that I am that I'm interested, in or all the users, that have the work name Alex, in on, their name out so absolutely. Okay, yeah so let me see if I can if I can get one that that, has a, substring. Search right, where I hit a couple people and. No. It looks like everybody has kam in their in their title that's funny let's. Try make. American, that's. Right. Yeah. So, I probably, am NOT going to get lucky at guessing, but one of the other cool things that, we do across this search is that will also do, searches across phone numbers too you, know so all the different data elements that you see on the screen like, those are all available for, us to be able to do searches on in, addition, if. I just want to try to grab a cohort, of users now, I've got the ability to take my, entire user list and then filter it as well and so, the the filtering is actually pretty robust where I can where, I can go and I can set up a bunch of different a, bunch of different areas within a, bunch of different data elements that we have yeah within that within the data structure and then, have, that being had that be filtered out to where I can just get the list of folks that I need so I can go in and look for all the Smythe's, in. California. Yeah right exactly, or I could look for all. Of the all the users in New York who have a particular policy assigned to the US right yeah totally so it's, a way to it's. A way to be sensitive to the fact that we. Know that we've got, customers. That have tons, of users in their ten and you want to be able to have a really quick way to, get to the right users or to get to the right groups. And the right code that's great so this is a great segue to policy. Management tell me how do I create a policy how do I apply them to a user or to a group of you yeah totally, so I'm gonna flip over to messaging policies, and so the first thing is that we're. Gonna have policies, that cover. Nearly. Every aspect of teams right so generally. We think about it and from a workloads perspective, or I think kind, of chatting messaging, and meetings and voice there. Are more policies, than that but those are kind of generally the big buckets that we think of the men yeah the, initial, release of the new admin Center is just focus, on on the, messaging, policies, today and.

In The. In the coming quarter we're going to be rolling out meetings. And voice as well to where you'll. Be able to have the ability to create, policy, and assign those to users at. A at, a per user basis, so let's. Bring up this this. Exec messaging. Policy, and so you, see this, is one that's already been. Created in the system I can give, it a quick description and, then near all the different, settings. That are that, are around. The concept of messaging, right, so for example here with our executives. We. Are saying that they're allowed to use jiffy's and conversations, but right now their, content rating is set, to is set to moderate, right you know so so maybe, those. Of you that aren't familiar I'm. Old and so jiffy's are I'm, probably you know the pronouncing, it wrong or, you know but Jeffy's our our our Jeff, images, that you can have. In, your chats, right, and they're and they're kind of funny and they're fun for you know kind of team. Feeling, like you, know, inside. Jokes it like for me it's just adding personalities. Your, station so. I think gifts. Express. So, much more than words can that's right and and and and because they can express the, totality, of the human experience we. Want to we want to be able to have some some ability, to provide, IT pros. Some. Some. Sense to be able to policy, that and so, you, can have that be very strict meaning the. Content, that that you're allowed to have in gifs is safer. For all different types of audiences. Rating. G right, yeah. It's. A us-centric, I, think that I think that the rest of the world is slightly, different movie ratings but yeah yeah absolutely so this is this is more appropriate for all audiences right. Moderate. Is you know probably getting a little racy but I guess, we're gonna trust our execs here and we're going to say that that. Our execs have no restrictions, and they they can use some. Some more interesting, gifs, and fully Express what their, what they're looking to write resonated great form and, so when you notice when I when I tickle that setting, that the, apply button came, on and so now I can hit apply now, I'm going to go and make that setting in the back end and you see hey success. This items been successfully, updated so. That way when I go back into into. Exact I can see yep alright great jiffy's are not restricted, that's great so now every time we have a new executive come onto the leadership team as part, of his user, administration, we can assign him the, executive. Chatting. Polish to do that so let's go on here and let's set.

Their, Team's. Messaging, policy, on to exec we. Hit apply and so, now this user, that I that, I clicked into now. They're now, their policy is excited, successfully. So the structure of product marketing now, they get to Jiffy, with the exact, nice. Great. So, there's there's, there's lots of information that's, here on the on the user detail card I can, just directly drop into a phone call an email or, send a chat via directly, from the links up here I see, the users assigned phone number I see their email address this. Directory, status user created, online all, that means is if, the users, if, the users object at office 365, was born, in the cloud was initially, created in office 365, or that. User was originally. Created in an on-premises. Active Directory and then synced, up to office 365 this. Particular, user happens. To have their their, conference, bridge information. Set up and so we, can go and we can configure the way that their conference bridge. Stuff. Happens okay, and so you can see here I've got the I've got the user they're currently set up in Anchorage and if I wanted to I could go and I could change them to any of the other phone numbers that are that, are set up within. The conference bridge and then and then similarly, you. Know there's, there's. The ability within conferences. To dial out to, external, parties and. So if I don't, want to allow those dial outs or I want to allow those just for domestic. Versus domestic international, calls right. So then those, policies, that not only allow you to say what they can do but it can else you you control your costs particular, users absolutely. Fantastic. So I love, the fact that we can do this what are some other the what, are some of the other capabilities, that we can do so we talked about some. Of the conference bridge capabilities so I'm going to go and jump into that so. One of the things that's important to remember is that this, is the admin Center for both Skype, for business and for Microsoft teams and, there's. A lot of shared. Fundamental. Infrastructure, between these two products and dial-in, conferencing is one of those and so I know, audio conferencing is near and dear to your heart yes and so here, is where we have all of the different numbers. That are that are set up for dial-in conferencing and. Then I can go, and configure, the settings, for. The bridges for. The bridges broadly, meaning, and setting the pin and, whether, or not when. Somebody exits, whether, we're speaking the name of the person who's entering, or exiting or, just providing a tone so, that's a setting that that exists across all, the different island bridges but I can also go and let. Me find a. Dedicated. Bridge, here I can also because this bridge is dedicated, I can change around the language information for, for the bridge so. Essentially. What this means is when, somebody, goes and calls in to the bridge initially. They'll be they'll. Be greeted in English but we can also set up some some. Alternate, languages, as well for. Folks that that dial in here so let's see what's do, let's. Go down to the bottom of the list here what's do Arabic. Chinese and Turkish and so that way when, somebody dials in to this bridge initially, they'll be greeted in English but these alternate, languages, will also be available for use, with that bridge as well and you, know one of the one of the kind of cool things about about. This model with the admin Center is that there's, a lot of kind, of consistent, controls, and and shared, experiences, across. The admin Center so anytime you see a table you, have the ability to customize what that table has in it so, if. I'm not interested, in seeing that language information, in. This table that I can turn that off that, language information goes away and then we remember. That customization, the, next time you come into the portal, right so, that way if, I've customized. You, know my view, of these tables, or I've customized, my dashboard or I've customized other, aspects, within the within the admin Center those. Customizations, are remembered, and reflected when you when, you log back in later nice okay. Great, so, let's see what else is we got here, org wide settings, these. All talk, about, different. Capabilities for. For. Folks that, that. Exist across the, across, the the, whole tenant right and so, we've, been talking a lot about the. Cases where you've got. We've. Got policy.

Configured, And that policy applies either, at a global level or a per user level there's also a set of settings that, are always going to apply at a global, level guest, is a great example all, the guests were going to treat equivalently, when they come into our organization and, you'll. Notice here that the messaging. Settings. For guests are very similar to the messaging settings in the messaging policy there they're parallel, but this is again, appropriate. For our guests. And so similarly. Let's make sure that our guests don't get themselves in trouble and then let's make sure that they're jiffy's yeah, strictly. Controlled, and right go, and have that and have that updated awesome, so not. Only so. I'm, just kind of walking through so we can do this for the entire organization so we can set a policy now we can set for a user, yeah, absolutely. Or we, can now even set it up for our guests where now we can control can, they edit can they delete can, they. Absolutely. It's, really good to know because you want to be able to have. Fine. Level control. Over, who's doing what in your organization, especially if you have folks that are coming in and being a part of teams you know we want to give them some rules yeah absolutely guardrails. Totally, this set of capability, exists. Today in the office 365 admin. Center and and this is one of the things that were porting from the office 365 admin Center over into, the, new Skype, for business Microsoft, teams admin Center and. So one, of the things to be aware of is that the. New admin portal is going to consistently. Have new stuff being. Added to it I know we've been talking about this for a long time, I had an ignite session, that was now. Six months ago it's crazy, we're talking, about the you know what we're doing with the new admin portal. But. But now that we have it up and running now. We're going to be just consistently, adding more and more capabilities. And features into it over time yeah nice yeah so what about the old portal. If it still exists. Totally, old portals still around and so that's here you, have these these links down at the bottom here to the call quality dashboard tool to, the call analytics portal and to the legacy Skype for business admin. Center so so. Essentially, our, goal is to is, to move the functions, from each of these portals, into the. New admin center the. First one that we'll hit will be call analytics, and so call, analytics instead of having it as a separate. Tool that you have to go to it's actually going to be integrated, directly, within, this experience, and so that way when, I go and I and I want to I want to check out the users information we can actually, incorporate. The. Users quality. Information directly. Into, their. User detail, page right, so when, when, I go to look at a user not only am I going to be able to look at their configuration, and their policies but I'm also going to be able to look at hey well we're the last calls that they made what is their aggregate call quality over a period of time and. So you, know again the goal is I, shouldn't, as an admin have to have, to kind of jump around to all these you know random tools they're, all great they're all very useful tools but we want to have them thoughtfully. Integrated, into a single experience, it's similar, to how teams, is. Like. Teams is this kind of amazing front-end, to office 365 where. I've got all of these fantastic, office 365, services, come presented, to me in a way that is that is that adds greatest, utility, for the purposes, of doing teamwork and doing, collaboration, similarly. For the purposes of management. And the IT experience, we want to have all of those all those, functions present in the new happen portal - perfect. So I'd, love to transition, into looking, ahead and, you. Talked a little bit about. So. Paint the picture for me in terms of what the admin, experience are what we hope the. Types of experiences that we hope our admins, have yeah definitely, so so, the first thing to be aware of is that we've got our roadmap. For Skype for business and teams that. Is the roadmap that we're following so, as as new. Capabilities. Are lighting, up within, teams we're going to be lighting up those experiences, within within. The admin Center as well, in. The, next in, the next a little bit like I said we're going to be bringing a lot of policies, into. The end of the experience and we're going to be migrating. Over the settings for messaging. I'm sorry the met the settings, for meetings and the settings for voice, but. Kind of looking down the line obviously, within the, existing skype. Admin, Center you've got lots of capabilities around phone numbers, you've got lots of capabilities around, setting, up auto attendance, and call queues all of those functions we're, going to be building into, into.

The New admin center and so essentially. There's there's. Kind of reciprocal, access to the backend between the two different tools so. For example with respect to the conference. Bridge capability, yeah, conference, bridge today. Has. Has. It as a set of a set of functions that work, against, both Skype for business and Microsoft teams when we bring over the phone number management, and the call queue capability, that same sort of model will will will occur where, I'll be able to manage across. Both tools and then eventually when we have everything built out in the admin Center you'll. See that these that these links will fall away because we'll have all of these all, these capabilities but don't more naturally, integrate that experience. Exactly yeah yeah so. It's so there's, still a ton of work to do and that's you know exciting, for me being in engineering, is that knowing like you know yeah there's there's a lot of cool things we get to build out here first. Just. To have. All of the admin experiences, kind. Of be present within this within, the school then to think about new admin experiences, that we want to bring to the table as well so for example managing. Teams and channels, today. If you, manage teams and channels you're doing, that larger. Than the auspices of the team's client, so, if. I want to know how, many people are subscribed, to a particular channel, or if I want to know about what who's who's, a member of a team all that's within the team's client. We're doing this were setting, up an infrastructure, that provides, a way, for admins. To look across all of, the teams that are within a tenant, and. Then, once we do that then we'll be able to bring those experiences, into, this tool and, so then I as an admin won't have to be a member of a team in order to manage. It I will be able to manage all of the teams that I've felt yeah because sometimes as an owner of a team, I have trouble and I, might need some help and so it's great admin. Can help me in. My particular team without necessarily, having to be a part of my team and then the longer-term you know we think that there's a whole bunch of of kind, of key indicators, around, how a team can be successful. And there's a whole bunch of data and and kind of insights that we can get around oh this. This team, has a as. As kind of a great experience and it's and it's working really well and. We can compare that with the team that that may not be working quite as well and we can think about well what are the aspects, of that well-functioning, team, that we can then apply, to a team, that hasn't quite caught on as.

Effectively, Yet and, so there's there's a bunch of those types. Of insights and a bunch of those types of of. Kind of best practices, that we can inculcate, within, the portal and, actually give to its, IT pros so that way they, can help be kind of agents of change and, help the, and, help the deployment, you know not just not. Just kind of operate, well but actually, fulfill. The needs of the business in the right way perfect. Ya know this is one. Stop yeah I mean there's there's a time here that we can do right yeah well, the future is certainly exciting, but, I have a couple questions for you but before we ask those questions. Let's. Take a quick break to go and see, a team's tip. Hi. I'm, Ann Michaels and welcome, to teams tips in this segment I will give you quick and easy tips for, how to use Microsoft, teams more effectively. Today. I will show you how, you can use, the chat functionality, in the most effective, way in Microsoft, tips I am here in my digital. Assets web channel and as you all know chatting, in teams is really easy all you have to do is, type, a sentence. A conversation, here, in the compose, box but, sometimes, their messages, where you want to make sure to draw more attention to, them in that case you can use the rich text, formatting, options that we have in team with, that you can add subject. For your messages, for example or, you can bold a part of your message or you, can also go ahead and hyperlink. A part, of your message what. I also always recommend, when you really have an important, message well then, use the functionality, that we have here and mark, that message, as important, because that will add this little read back to that message and make, it easier, for other people to see it that message, what, I personally, also like to do is that, I like to include stickers, in my messages that, helps, me on the one hand to add a little bit of a personal, touch to my messages, and with. Stickers you can also caption. Them so you can add an additional, message. To, that conversation as, well. Another. Functionality, that, we have recently, added is that you can now also reference. Items, from an app, directly. In your chat, conversations. So we have these little three dots here at the bottom and when you click on them then, you can see all the apps that you have made, available for, that functionality, and for, example there is a news article that I have been talking with my team about and now I can go in here click, on news directly. Search for that news article, and with, just one simple click I can, then include a reference, hyperlink. To that news article, into, my conversation so, that my team can easily, go, to that news article, that's. It for today, for, more teamstepps, follow us on twitter hashtag. Teamstepps. Alright. I hope you enjoyed that team's tip tip Jeeves, - sorry. Before. We go I have a couple of questions for you now you alluded, that the Skype for business portal, will eventually, go away but, when, will that happen I want to give some assurance to, our existing, Skype for business online cause yeah I know so the goal here isn't, isn't to have this go away before the capability, is is up.

And Running in the new admin Center like that's that's the first thing I, look, at that, all that all the things that we do today in the sky from is Simon's Center that's like that's the baseline set, of capabilities that we need to support obviously, where we're taking the opportunity with, every, single one of the functions whether it's porting. Phone numbers or managing, them or call queues or whatever, whatever. We're talking about within. The existing admin center we're really being thoughtful around, is this, the right design is this the right flow is this the right set, of, set. Of steps we want to take an admin through and then doing a ton of user research to help validate those decisions, and then bringing those functions. Into the, new admin Center so only when that process is done are we are, we going to shut down the existing Skype, for business admin, center in office. 365 so it's. Going to be a little while I may be you know probably by the end of the year I expect. To have some, news that ignites that just seems like a reasonable, time to go. And talk about you know what are what our kind of future plans are here but the, most important, thing is that we're not we're, not going to take capabilities. That admins. Have access to today and and, and leave them without anything. Else like we're gonna be not only bringing over with a half today but, we're really working thoughtfully. To make this much much better perfect, well with your energy and passion. Well. And I hope too with, everyone, that's watching you, have an opportunity to go and check out the new admin Center I, happen. To hang out sporadically, on Twitter so no one hesitates. To. Provide feedback whether, within our own corporate, feedback mechanisms, whether it's over Twitter or whatever the case may be I, am more, than happy to hear, that and you know just feel. A lot of passion for the folks that do, a day-in, day-out basis. Are responsible, for managing maybe, their own office, 365, implementation. Maybe, implementations, of their customers, if their partners yeah I've, gotten a lot of feedback over the years on how we can make this better and and, ya know this is our thing so of course we want to make it awesome we want everyone to be excited about it it's cool now. Don't. Forget you can also submit a question in, the Q&A manager down below both. Jamie and I are answering, the questions. So, right. There. And. We also have some other experts, in the background answering the questions, the. Last question that I want to ask you about is Skype for business server, of. Course so. You, know we're showing this great admin, center portal, portal, will it work with Skype for business on-premises, so the short answer is that no so you're going to still, have a Skype, for business server, administration. Experience. And an office 365, administration. Experience that being said we've, started with the with the new release of the server that's coming out the end of the year we've, started to bridge. That divide in a lot of ways the, first one that we thought was going to have a bunch of value for folks is taking. The, kind of core. Quality. Data and, and and call information, and instead, of having that stored on premises, having, that being stored, up in the end of the cloud so you have an opportunity to essentially pipe, all of that kind of reporting data up into office 365 for, hybrid customers this makes a ton of sense right so now I can, do my reporting, I could do my call analytics, I could do everything, essentially. Across the, domain of both server and service. And. So that's that's kind of a first step there and. It, remains to be seen if we're going to take successive. Steps to say to, actually have an admin experience where I am where I'm kind of managing, policy, and I am and I'm doing things within the. The new admin center that that then impacts. The server that impacts an on-premises, deployment, so, happy, to take feedback on that if that's a direction that folks are interested in in having us going but we've already taken those we're, already taking those first initial steps and so with.

The New server you will be able to have you. Know the call quality dashboard looking, across both, stuff. That's happening online and stuff that's happening on premises, in a single view so. You, can kind of look at that as you know we're moving stepwise into into, that kind of consolidated, management. Across server and service. Having. Quite having quite made the call if that's how, far we're gonna go in that direction okay well looking, forward to learning more in the meantime. Are. There any documentation, or, links that you want to share how can our customers, and learn more about this new admin there, there's, probably at some point with, all the magic that's happened in this new recording. Stuff. The delando set up and involve the podcast, from or the the videocast from there's probably magic, like links that have already appeared below my face so, click on that and then you'll go off and you'll read some of the cool documentation, yeah those. Of you listening, podcast. You can go to This wraps up another week of teams, on air they bring you the chance to come back always. Know, we. Have an open mic policy, here I just. Gotta have some new stuff to show sweet.

This was a fun one. Love the enthusiasm of Jamie :p.

Can't wait to see the new portal...

Did Delanda forget who Jaime Stark was?

Jamie is a great guest to have on. He gets you pumped up on the products each and ever time.

Thank you for your kind words!

Today everyone that it’s part of a team is able to create a new team. I know there’s way to restrict office 365 groups creation. Will there be a function on the new admin center to restrict new teams creation to a security group? I work for a big company and this is one of our concerns.

I missed any update in this channel? it should be an update on this Wed?

Nice conversation

DONE add #TeamsTips to my favorites of Microsoft Edge, and add Twitter BOT for checking #TeamsTips on Microsoft Teams channel.

My channel is eligible to earn but has not received any emails from Youtube. What should I do?

Please add a way for Sysadmins to control teams easily! I have to wait for hours after adding myself as an owner to a team to help them with their files!!!!

We desperately need more admin and reporting around the actual team sites: names, owners, members, size, apps used, etc... this is vital to control sprawl and actually administer this for groups. It is a huge problem right now. Things are hidden and almost impossible to find. Please help!

We hear you! Make sure your voice is heard by adding ideas to our uservoice:

When we expect new version of skype for business on-premise server?
