#GettingBackToTheBASICS | The Top New Features in MS Teams (video timestamps included below).

As we all adjust to the new norms in our virtual workplace, we have witnessed colleagues struggle with adapting to remote solutions. In response, #BASICSLLC is launching a new #GettingBackToTheBASICS series. As part of the series, we’ve been polling our network to understand their challenges with common platforms or products. To date, the majority of the questions have been about #MSTeams, which is a great topic since MS is in the process of rolling out some great new features. So, to kick off the series, we thought we would share the YouTube video of OUR go-to resource, Kevin Stratvert, highlighting some of these features. Kevin is a former employee of MS and produces some of the best step-by-step tutorials.

We really recommend subscribing to Kevin’s YouTube channel! 📹🥇
