Are you getting the most out of your Microsoft 365 apps? During this 90-minute session, we will outline best practices for sharing, planning and collaborating.

We will then shift our focus to meetings, specifically how to share meeting information like agendas, meeting minutes and notes using a Wiki in a Microsoft Teams meeting in Outlook vs meeting in a Teams channel.
