Be a Meetings Champion!

Posted on August 05, 2019 by Richard Brynteson in Microsoft Teams Skype for Business

Today was the MN Office 365 Users Group meeting and I had the honor to talk about being a Microsoft Teams Meeting Champion. During the presentation we reviewed a bunch of demonstrations and more. But I wanted to give a quick outline to those who might download the before mentioned deck with some guidance.

Level Set

All too often people overlook the different types of meetings. Each has a specific purpose within an organization and not understanding why you might want to schedule a meeting in one particular way verses another can be difficult. So in the first section we discussed Scheduled vs Channel vs Ad-Hoc meetings. And because it is fun, we threw in the fourth type, Live Events because it is a type of meeting just very different.

The Demo

Here we go through the mechanics of the meeting. Here is the general outline I followed:


  • Chat
  • Files
  • Meeting Options
  • Limitation (Meeting Guest) ..* If had a guest account, then could use that instead ..* Do not see the thread, even after they joined

During Meeting

  • Blur
  • Recording
  • Meeting Options
  • Chat
  • Live Captions
  • Whiteboard ..* No whiteboard for guests either!
  • Share (Including System Audio)
  • Notes ..* Guests can not see meeting notes during
  • Meeting Companion with Mobile Client

Post Meeting

  • Chat
  • Files
  • File Recording

What is New

Here we just reviewed what was demonstrated at Enterprise Connect, updated on Users Voice and other items that I knew we could discuss.


These are just some random thoughts and ideas from a Microsoft MVP. We might cover everything from Development, to Teams, to Skype and might even through in a random bit of Azure and AWS
