Microsoft Teams for Team Owners Training

This Microsoft Teams course is designed for "Team Owners", which is anyone that creates a team or has been given that role in an existing Microsoft Team. Team Owners have access to settings and capabilities that members do not see. This training will discuss how best to create a Microsoft team, choose settings based upon your needs, and manage the team throughout its existence and as it grows. We will also go over best practices for organizing all of the aspects of group work that should be taken into consideration before team creation even begins to maximize a group's ability to effectively communicate and collaborate.
