Interactive Guide on Office 365 Groups

Posted by Asif Rehmani on Jan 25, 2017

I'm a big fan of helping users get used to an application by getting down and dirty into it. Yes, they might end up breaking small things here and there sometimes. However, as long as they are in a safe environment with little to no impact on core business, the advantages of user adoption far outweigh the risks.

Announcement from VisualSP CEO Asif Rehmani:

As many Office 365 users know, Microsoft Office 365 is an amazing offering, and it has been growing leaps and bounds in the last year. Many small to large organizations around the world are taking advantage of this platform.

Office 365 consists of many useful applications such as Mail, Tasks, SharePoint, Office Online, Planner, Yammer, OneDrive, Delve and so much more. They are all shifting and changing as time goes by and as Microsoft is adjusting to market demands and rolling out constant updates to it all. Things are starting to get complicated real fast as this offering is coming of age.

So what do end users and administrators currently do when they are looking for answers?

One of the following two things:

1) Search for answers online and sift through results on Microsoft sites, MVP articles, Forums and YouTube videos
Challenge with No. 1: There is too much information out there about certain things and it’s easy to get lost or get the wrong answers. On the flip side, there is not much information about other things and you feel equally lost.

2)  Click on the ? button at the top right of the screen. I don’t see too many people having faith in this method anymore, but those that still do are presented with the following screen:
