Keeping in Touch
Keeping in touch is going to be vital during the coming weeks.
Here are some tips on how to use the main Communication tools in Teams. Each heading links to a Microsoft Support page with a video for some of the features.
Why Chat is important?
A lot of remote workers find the thing they miss the most about the office is casual conversations. Chats keep us connected. Be deliberate about reaching out and connecting with your co-workers.
Think of chat messages as your virtual watercooler and set yourself a reminder to check in with people regularly. Emojis, GIFs, and stickers are a fun way to keep in touch.
Meetings in Teams include audio, video, and screen sharing.
Teams meetings are best when you create and join them from the Teams app. The PLD Team recommend creating meeting using the Calendar within Teams. The meetings synchronize with your Outlook Calendar.
In a Meeting
The first slider turns your video on or off, the second one blurs your background and the third is your audio.
Record your meetings in Teams to capture audio, video, and screen sharing activity. Team members wo aren’t able to join can watch the meeting later. That way, people can easily review anything they missed or need repeated.

In Microsoft Teams, you can show your desktop, a specific app, presentation, or any file while in a meeting.
