A woman is sitting on her desk, looking very exhausted by screen fatigue These days, and much before the pandemic I mainly work from home, I love it since I can do a lot more without spending time commuting to clients. And best of all, I don’t spend time in pointless meetings, all my meetings are precise to the topic of the current project we are preparing. Great! Expect that seeing and talking to people is a basic need and I am an extrovert so I actually get a kick out of discovering new people all the time. This is why I regularly join some virtual groups, where we all work on our separate t ..read more

Post in French this time – or for bilingual people who may have the same issue. And no.. no solution yet :-(. Un bug très très énervant sur Microsoft Teams: si vous utilisez plusieurs langues, il vous faut changer la langue parlée pour chaque réunion, ce qui est vraiment ridicule! Please please Microsoft, fix this tiny weeny setting! #CannotBeJustMe #multilingualTeams #MSTeamsLangues Microsoft “UserVoice” Feedback Portal has a few requests to improve this, but clearly, we need more people to vote for them.

I have just uploaded a new tip on my YouTube channel. In part 1 of this experiment, I was mainly focusing on just “joining” a meeting and not so much on the webcam. This is a follow-up video and response to a question in the comments. “can I add another device during a meeting, so that I use the webcam from that device?” Yes yes .. and here is how.

MS Teams: Can I invite a guest to a channel without giving access to the whole team?
Francois

Right now, we can’t! Any user needs to be a member of the parent team to be a member of a channel, but this is changing soon. It’s getting rolled out for Q2 2022! .. well Microsoft announced it in March 2021, “Microsoft Connect Shared Channels” are coming. Shared Channels are the answers to a question that always comes up when I train on Microsoft Teams ins and outs: “I don’t want my supplier to access our project team, but just files in their own channel” or “I want all my contractors to discuss in the same channel and our employees to see all the channels including the contractors one”.

? How to keep metadata when deleting a SharePoint list item
Francois
by Francois

During one of my coaching sessions, I had an interesting scenario from a user. They have thousands of items in a SharePoint list and when one item is deleted, for instance, because the item is no longer in their catalogue, they wanted to keep an archive of that item, either before or after deletion. Further discussion with the user, I realised that the scenario was just not being taken from the right angle. Instead of telling users to delete, they should make them change metadata and then do the expected process in the backend… via Power Automate. Let’s see how to do that in less than 6 minute ..read more
