Introduction to Microsoft Teams

Office 365 Teams is a new way of communicating and storing files. Instead of having to search a shared drive for files, or your whole mailbox for information, Teams provides a way to collaborate and share by project or by working group. This means that everything that happens in relation to a team or project is in one place, making it easier to find the information you need and to keep this up-to-date.

This half-day course is an introduction to working with Teams and covers setting up Teams and how to structure them, as well as using Channels, Chat, Files and Meetings.

This course can be delivered in the classroom or remotely via GoToTraining. Contact us for availability and pricing, or see our Live Online Learning page for our interactive 90-minute webinars that cover specific sessions.

The room was not ready with the screen project. Did not start until 11am. Find it difficult to understand Edo at times. I think the course was rushed.

Coronavirus Update

Due to current government guidelines we have temporarily closed our training centre in London. All of our staff are now working remotely, and all classroom training has been postponed until 29th May.

We have developed a fantastic range of interactive webinars delivered by our experienced facilitators, Live Online Learning. We understand that for many people this will be the first time that they have worked from home and so we have developed short 1.5-2 hour sessions to help you adjust to this new situation. You can see details of our IT Skills live online learning sessions here and our Personal Development sessions here – or we can adapt any of our classroom training into webinar format for you.

For the latest government guidance, please visit the gov.uk website.

We will continue to monitor the situation and will advise all clients if the situation changes.

If you have any questions or concerns, or would like to arrange some online training, our friendly team are available Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm. You can leave a message on 020 7375 7300 or email us at hello@happy.co.uk.
