Community Feedback on Which #M365 Tool & When

One of the ongoing questions that MVPs, community experts, and partners have been hearing for years is “Which tool should I use, and when should I use them?” The question really arose after Microsoft’s acquisition of #Yammer a few years back, when people were confused over when to switch between SharePoint (which had some basic social capabilities at the time) and Yammer communities. With the expansion of OneDrive, the launch of Stream, and the amazing growth and success of Microsoft Teams, this question became more and more common. For this month’s #CollabTalk tweetjam, we wanted to discuss “Are Customers Still Asking ‘Which Tool & When’?” and break down the underlying issues of this question. We had another amazing panel of experts, MVPs, and RDs joining in on the discussion.

With the M365 Virtual Marathon event happening this week, turnout was less than we had hoped — but regardless, we had solid stats, with 268 tweets, 2 million impressions, and reaching 393k profiles. You can check out the full stats for the event at

Following the tweetjam, I was able to grab some time with fellow RD and dual MVP (Office Apps & Services + Azure) Martina Grom (@magrom), CEO of Vienna-based consultancy atwork GmbH, and discuss her takeaways on the topic. Check out the interview here:


Thank you again, Martina, for taking a break in your afternoon to connect and share your thoughts in both the live event and this interview. Also thanks to AvePoint (@AvePoint) and tyGraph (@tyGraphTweets) for their sponsorship of these tweetjams, and to tyGraph for the amazing stats that they provide each month. If you are planning an event and would like to include similar stats, please contact them!

The #CollabTalk TweetJam will return on May 12th at 11am Pacific in conjunction with the Teams Nation online conference (registration is FREE) for a community discussion on “Improving Productivity Within the Enterprise.” I’ll share updates soon, so please follow me on Twitter or LinkedIn for the latest news. Thanks
