getting started with Microsoft Teams

A great way to get started with Teams is to pilot the platform within an IT department. Doing so enables IT employees to better understand Teams so they can evangelize the platform and help other employees get started with it.

For example, a successful pilot program could include creating an overarching “IT Department” team within the platform, which would then have several channels dedicated to different IT needs, such as:

Z

General

This channel could be led by the IT manager or CIO as a general place to post IT announcements.

Z

Infrastructure

This channel could contain documentation on network infrastructure that IT employees can refer to as needed, along with providing a way for employees to communicate about infrastructure-related needs.

Z

Cybersecurity

This channel could contain documentation of a company’s information security policies, along with providing a secure way for employees to alert one another about vulnerabilities, communicate about cyber awareness initiatives and more.

Z

Help Desk

This channel could be used by IT employees to communicate and collaborate on help desk issues such as open tickets and Wikis.
