During the Microsoft 365 Conference 2023 in Las Vegas, Microsoft announced many new features for SharePoint, OneDrive, Lists, and other M365 products. SharePoint stole the show with the huge list of upcoming features and changes. Here are my 8 favorite features announces during the conference.
The latest update for SharePoint Lists enabled integration between Lists and Approvals in Teams. It’s available in a dedicated list template and you can use it to trigger Teams approvals directly from a list item. You can enable it for a selected list and let your users work directly from the Teams Approval application. Let’s go and check how to enable it and work with it.
Avatars are finally in Teams! Will avatars significantly reduce the number of people without cameras or is it just a gadget? Time will tell. Microsoft has released a preview version and now we can test it out in practice and see if it makes sense. In this post, I will show you how to enable Avatars and how to start using them.
Last week Microsoft released a preview version of Loop. It’s a dedicated tool for collaboration. You can use it for notes, task management, or meeting summaries. You can add colleagues and work together using workspaces or even embed them into Teams. Today I will show you how you can enable Loop Preview and how to work with it.
Let’s talk about the next set of features in Teams Premium – webinars. The latest features reshaped it significantly and right now it’s really a competitive webinar solution. Among the new features are enhanced presenter functions, a new attendees management process, and the addition of a “green room.” These new features aim to provide a professional and streamlined experience for both presenters and attendees. In this post, I will guide you through the process of configuring and enabling these new features. I will explain how presenters can leverage Teams to enhance their webinar experience.
You can use apps in meetings for some time now. It’s a great way to quickly share content more interactively or to add additional features to a meeting. Add a poll or share a task from a task management tool. The feature was limited only to scheduled meetings but now you can use it in channel meetings too!
The new Bing is available as a limited Preview and I got a chance to play with it. It has been released in a few weeks and got a lot of attention. A totally new search experience with AI chat is something that could change the future of how we search. I found it very useful in certain scenarios, but some areas require significant improvements.
Video Filters in Teams meetings are now available in the Public Preview channel. With the feature, you can modify your video stream from your camera. Want to make your video Black and White or add some balloons? You can do that!
Let’s go and enable it in Teams and try to test the effects on the video.
End-to-end encryption – a new feature that helps you protect Teams meeting data is available in the Teams Premium trial license. Using this feature you add an extra protection layer to your meetings and minimize potential attacks. It supports the most important meeting features, and you can enable/disable it using Teams policies.
Let’s go and check how it works and how to use it.
We share many different types of content during Teams meetings, for example, offer documents, Excel with budget data, system architecture, or a diagram with the financial flow. Many documents contain sensitive or even highly confidential information. To protect such data you can use a brand-new feature introduced in the Teams Premium license – Watermarks.
In this post, I will show you how to enable Watermarks and how to use them in a meeting.
