Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about Microsoft Teams:
Teams meetings or calls can be recorded to capture video, audio, and screen sharing activity. The recording takes place in the cloud, and it is saved so you can share it with other members of your team or across your organization. While recording is in progress, you’ll see no more than four peoples’ video streams at one time. In order to take advantage of recording and video playback capabilities in Teams on mobile devices, users should update to the latest version of the Teams app for iOS and Android.
Starting in Q1 of 2021, Teams meeting recordings will no longer be saved to Microsoft Stream. Moving forward, they will be saved in OneDrive and SharePoint. If an administrator at your company has set a policy for saving to Microsoft Stream, you will need to accept it before the recording begins. The person who initiated the recording will receive an email notification when the recording is available to view. It also shows up in the meeting chat, or in the respective channel conversation.
If you’re a team owner, you can remove someone from your team at any time. You may need to ask your IT administrator to reassign the team roles if you want to remove a team member. In order to begin this process, click on the team name in the sidebar of your Teams app. Then, click More Options > Manage Team > Members. From here, you’ll see a full list of members and just click the X to the far-right side of the person’s name you want to remove.
Note: Removing someone from a team does not remove them from the organization entirely. They will still have access to Teams, Office, and other parts of your subscription. An administrator has the ability to remove someone from the application as a whole via Microsoft 365 dashboard.
There are steps you need to complete if you want to transfer and join meetings across multiple devices. First, remain in the meeting on the device you are already using – there’s no need to hang up and lose your progress. Then, log into the Teams app on the device you wish to transfer that meeting to. Upon log in, you should see a banner pop up which prompts you to join the meeting.
You will have the option to either Add this device or Transfer to this device. If you choose to Add this device, you can be present in the meeting from two separate devices – this is known as Companion Mode. The mobile client will automatically disable video, microphone, and speaker to prevent feedback into the call. Once you’ve connected into the meeting using Companion Mode, you have a variety of functions at your disposal to combine the experience between the PC and mobile device.
Breakout rooms in Microsoft Teams allows you to create sub-meetings within your Teams meetings for smaller groups to collaborate and have more meaningful discussions. You must be a meeting organizer in order to access and manage the breakout room option. Breakout rooms can only be created after the meeting has started and you can add up to 50 breakout rooms for a single meeting.
Polly: With Polly, users can create polls inside of their Teams channels and view real-time results and analytics as they come in. All you need to do is mention @polly in your designated chat and customize your poll.
Karma: Karma is a peer engagement and recognition tool that records “kudos” you give to your fellow employees. It helps to promote good behavior and best practices, and acts as an internal scoring system where people can give each other points and move up leaderboards.
Trello: Trello Connector allows team members to collaboratively manage to-do lists and tasks. Everyone is kept in the loop on their work and can fully engage with Trello’s tools without leaving the Microsoft Teams interface.
Wiki: Wiki is a default app in Microsoft Teams, included automatically when you create a channel, which can be used as a dedicated workspace for members to record notes. It is a great central knowledge repository, as well as an FAQ resource.
ScrumGenius: ScrumGenius is a way to keep track of recurring meetings and the progress associated with meeting goals. Every day at a set time, the ScrumGenius bot prompts team members with a series of questions on what they accomplished yesterday, what they plan to do next, and any blockers they encountered.
