“We plan to use Microsoft 365 Learning Pathways for Office 365 user training; do we still need VisualSP?” This is the question companies have recently been asking.
The answer is yes.
To ensure that employees learn and actually use Office 365, even if you are using Microsoft 365 Learning Pathways, you still need to install VisualSP to provide in-context one-click help to your employees. VisualSP ensures successful user adoption of the platform.
Let's explain how.
Employees will not abandon their current favorite tools and adopt SharePoint on their own; they have to be driven.
How To Build And Maintain An Effective Online Compliance Training Program
One of the hottest trends in the digital age across industries is the growing complexity of regulation. Whether the topic is online privacy, harassment, record retention, sanctions compliance, anti-trust, anti-money-laundering, or a host of other areas – organizations must continually revise policies and educate their users to understand the relevant laws and policies so they can make the right day to day business decisions.
When it comes to comes to getting the most out of the SharePoint platform, there are two major hurdles many companies encounter when following best practices to boost adoption:

In addition to the out-of-the-box workflows, SharePoint and Office 365 enable the creation of custom business workflows and a variety of no-code automation solutions.
Many companies build these computing processes to help employees easily and duly perform repetitive tasks. But, many of these solutions are often either ignored or abandoned.
There is a better approach to these initiatives.
During the keynote at #SPC18 last week, the MS team re-assured the attendees that SharePoint is seen as a 'foundational service' for Office 365, along with OneDrive and Exchange. Microsoft has seen a 200% growth in SharePoint storage used in O365. Out of all active SharePoint seats – 70% of them are for SharePoint Online (as opposed to on-prem). Their strategy has 4 pillars that are defining the dev work they are doing day in and day out. Here's a summary of those pillars and what features we're seeing happen for each of them.
In this instance, "training" means "transferring knowledge to an end-user"; and, “helping" means "guiding an end-user through steps while completing a task".
Helping works better than training because mastery is attained at work, not in classrooms. In other words, learning on the job is the superior way.
Team collaboration, task automation, data security, employee productivity, and return on investment are the common business pursuits. Toward those goals, companies have deployed SharePoint and Office 365.
However, all these business goals are only attainable to the extent that employees actually use the platforms. At the same time, SharePoint and Office 365 adoption remains a major challenge to organizations of all sizes. The idea of "build it; they will come" seldom translates into reality.
