Office 365 Productivity Tips “December Demolition”

In case you missed the webinar today with myself and Tom Duff (@duffbert) as part of our ongoing “Office 365 Productivity Tips” series, here is a quick summary blog of the latest episode that we called ‘December Demolition’ with links to each tip.

If you’ve not yet caught one of our live sessions or participated in our webinars, our template is straightforward: we share 10 different productivity tips from across the entire Office 365 platform and Microsoft Office productivity suite across 5 rounds of head-to-head productivity matchups. Neither of us know ahead of time what will be presented by the other, and the audience votes after each round. Most of what we share will eventually appear on Tom’s blog — — or here on my site.

Here’s the latest webinar via the CollabTalk YouTube channel (please subscribe!):

Additionally. our slides are always made available for download in SlideShare.

Quick Links to the 10 Tips

You may be familiar with a few of the tips, but there’s usually one or two (or more) that people have never seen nor heard of, so there’s always value in participating in one of our sessions. Here are the tips that we shared:

  1. Automatic suggestion for Alt-text in Word & PowerPoint [13:24]
  2. Reordering your tasks in Outlook [17:17]
  3. Using the organization chart in Microsoft Teams [21:20]
  4. Improved calendaring sharing in Outlook mobile [27:10]
  5. Microsoft Search in your results [32:48]
  6. Navigating forward and backwards in Microsoft Teams [38:51]
  7. The New Microsoft Teams Adoption Guide [42:09]
  8. Outlook Message Preview – changing the number of lines to show [46:11]
  9. Pinning email messages in Outlook Online on Office 365 [50:11]
  10. Create internal or external polls with Microsoft Forms [54:01]
