Cloud Connect July 2018

Tips & Tricks:

It’s Friday, 4:59 PM. You mouse over to close your Microsoft Outlook for the weekend and head out of the door. One last email comes in. You know if you just type out a reply real quick, it will take just two minutes…so you start typing. Two paragraphs in, you feel your weekend slipping away – but you can’t step away now, you’ll have to wait until Monday to finish the draft!


No longer! With the latest version of Microsoft Outlook for iOS & Android, your drafts now sync to the Outlook client on your mobile device, and vice versa!


The question of the Month:

We frequently work with the same consultants or people outside our company. Can we add external users in Microsoft Teams?

Yes! Anyone with a business or consumer email accounts, such as, or others, can participate as a guest in Teams with full access to team chats, meetings and files. All guests in Teams are covered by the same compliance and auditing protection as the rest of Office 365 and can be managed securely within Azure AD.

Once they accept the invitation, guests can participate in chats, join meetings, collaborate on documents, and more. Teams with guests will be identified with text and icons throughout the Teams UI to give all team members a clear indication that there are guests on that team.


Product Spotlight:

Microsoft Whiteboard!

It’s a staple of the conference room – the ubiquitous, white dry-erase board. Every week, it seems like it’s updated with new, critical information, only to be forgotten and erased the following meeting and forgotten.

With Microsoft Whiteboard – not only is the information persistent every time anyone views the whiteboard, you can collaborate with your coworkers in real time. All on the same board, anywhere.

  • Give your ideas room to grow with Microsoft Whiteboard. Transform your work into professional-looking charts and shapes on an infinite canvas with an interface designed for pen, touch, and keyboard.
  • Bring your team together on the same virtual canvas, around the world and across devices.
  • Your whiteboards stay safe in the cloud until you’re ready to return to them, from the same or another device. No need to take photos of your whiteboards or mark them with “Do Not Erase.”
