Celebrating 10 Years as a Microsoft MVP

Back from my vacation, I am thrilled to share that I have been awarded the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) award for the 10th consecutive year. In addition to being recognized as an expert within Teams, I am have also been recognized as an expert with Microsoft Copilot. This means a lot to me.  Being an MVP has been an incredibly rewarding journey, both personally and professionally. It has provided me with countless opportunities to grow, learn, and connect with like-minded professionals who share a passion for technology and innovation.  The award is not just a title; it's a testament to the hard work, dedication, and contributions to the tech community. It's a privilege to be part of such an esteemed group of individuals who share the same love for technology, and sharing their knowledge about it.  As I reflect on the past decade, I am thankful for the experiences and knowledge I've gained. This recognition motivates me to continue sharing my expertise, mentor

The new Yammer in Teams has landed

The new Yammer app has landed in Teams for most tenants. Using this app Teams allows users to easily access Yammer and it's community discussions. The new app in Teams is based upon the new Yammer look, where you get a lot of the new features announced at Ignite 2019. The app can be added by admins through policies, or users may add them directly themselves.

If you have not deployed Yammer to your organization, you might want to tell users not to use this app, or hide it from the store.

To access the new app, just click the app icon at the bottom of the left rail, search for "Yammer" and the application called "Communities"

Users may discover that the app does not allow you to switch networks (yet), and they will have to switch to a browser version to do so.
