Office 365 Productivity Tips “February Fray”

The 19th webinar in the Office 365 Productivity Tips series was recorded on February 24th, 2020 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 “February Fray” 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
