Office 365 Productivity Tips “November Tussle”

The 18th webinar in the Office 365 Productivity Tips series was recorded on November 26th, with myself and Tom Duff (@duffbert) once again going head-to-head to share some of our favorite personal and team productivity tips from the tools and workloads available within Office 365. Here is a quick summary blog of the latest episode that we called the “November Tussle” with links to each individual tip, as well as the entire video and slides.

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 (if you enjoy this content, then 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. Pinned Channels in Teams [5:11]
  2. Weather and World Clock web parts on SharePoint Online pages [9:34]
  3. Button and Call To Action web parts on SharePoint Online pages [15:05]
  4. Sensitivity Labels in Teams, Groups, and SharePoint [21:13]
  5. Control who can email a channel in Teams [27:08]
  6. Dark Mode in the Outlook mobile app [31:46]
  7. Adding Comments to non-Microsoft files in SharePoint Online and OneDrive [36:05]
  8. Translate your emails in Outlook [41:35]
  9. Cleaning up conversations in Outlook [47:09]
  10. Version History on Office files shared in SharePoint and OneDrive [52:28]
