First Look: Microsoft Teams Connect Shared Channels - Coffee with the Cowbell Live Stream

In tonight's session, we showed a sneak peak of Microsoft Teams Connect Shared Channels, and talked through scenarios for both external and internal collaboration. I had a few glitches while I demo'd, tho afterwards I did figure out my mistake (stay tuned to the next session for the explanation).

What's this "cowbell" thing about anyway??

For those that may have been wondering why I put "cowbell" on my Microsoft Teams and SharePoint content, the mystery was finally explained on last night's #coffee4teams DECAF episode! ๐Ÿค“

If you're still confused or you're not a Will Ferrell fan, I may have to unfriend you. ;)

Live Stream: Coffee with the Cowbell - March 12 2022


We talk about Best Practices using Microsoft Teams! Today, we discussed integrating Power BI into Teams using a Tab, and also using the app pinned to the left-rail. We showed some of the advantages to using tabs. 

Then, we showed how to use Forms Polls in a Teams meeting! We pre-created the poll questions before the meeting started, then launched them during the meeting. We were also able to see the poll results real-time during the meeting as well as after the meeting ended.

[LIVE] Using Loop in Microsoft Teams - Coffee with the Cowbell

Today's live stream (Saturdays 11:30am EST) included my Twitter feed, as well as Twitch | Facebook | YouTube | LinkedIn

I demonstrated the use of Loop in Microsoft Teams chat. While the full vision of Loop is still rolling out, we explored the features and possible scenarios addressed with the current iteration. We looked at where the .fluid files are stored (OneDrive) and explored several of the different live component options available.
