I had a lot of fun writing the last blog on approvals. So I'd thought I would double down and use the Forms app with Flow and Lists which we can surface into Teams and then push out to Yammer by the way of conditions and approvals. I thought it would just be cool to cover a real world scenario which you could apply, customise to your needs to take parts and use them in your own flow. Rather unusually given the length and amount of apps involved I haven't got much to say - I really hope you really enjoy this one
With Teams, we have a number of things we can do to keep our Team up to date. This includes group chats, conversations in channels, meetings, notifications, mentions, and adding content to the Wiki. Another way is by leveraging what are called connectors to deliver content from apps such as Twitter and Yammer into the conversation tab of the Team channel. Twitter, for example, is used by millions for posting and interacting with messages. Yammer is an enterprise social networking service for broadcasting one to many communications within the business. Both are places users and organisations post news and status updates first. Now, the benefit of setting up connectors to Twitter and Yammer is that members of the Team no longer have to scour them and jump around between all these different Twitter pages and Yammer groups to get the updates they need - we can simply bring them all into a feed! A great time saver.
I think it's fair to say that a lot of people will do this exam because of Microsoft Teams. Teams is, after all, the fastest growing app in Microsoft history. At the time of writing there are over 500,000 organisations using it. 91% of the Fortune 500. At the time of writing (May 2019) there has been lots of functionality introduced this year or coming in the next few months. It's hard to keep up - even for those administering it every day.
