This course covers Office 365 Teams for Administrators. Delegates will learn the following including hands on labs

  • Office 365 Teams Features and Functionality
  • Office 365 Teams planning and deployment considerations
  • Office 365 Teams Administration tools and role models
  • Office 365 Teams Meetings functionality and administration
  • Office 365 Teams Messaging and Channels
  • Office 365 Teams Security and Compliance features
  • Office 365 Teams migration, upgrades and co-existence
  • Office 365 Teams Reporting
  • Office 365 Teams calling features and administration

Delegates should have a basic understanding of what Office 365 is and basic computer skills. Note this course is for people involved in Office 365 Teams Administration, not end users.

Whilst this is not a powershell course, as powershell is one of the core administrative tools within Microsoft 365 products - there will be powershell steps referenced within the course and used in the labs. Where powershell is used in the labs Students can either copy and paste the instructions, or in most exercises use a GUI alternative method (though sometimes a GUI alternative is not available). A high level understanding of what powershell is would be very beneficial, but not absolutely essential for this course.
