One of the awesome collaboration options within Microsoft Teams is the persistent chats that can occur outside of a Team or Channel. These are good for having one off business conversations that don’t relate to a specific Team but also for building camaraderie and having a little fun around the virtual water cooler. As you are a part of more and more chats, it can soon become confusing as to the intent. How do you quickly find the exact chat you are looking for?Continue reading
I’m pretty stoked to have been selected to present at the MVP Days online conference on January 30, 2019. My talk “The First 5 Things to Getting Started with Team: IT Admin Edition” will give you tips on things to consider as you are rolling out.
I found that there is a ton of guidance for getting started with the Microsoft Teams application itself, but not a lot from an administrator perspective. I’d love to hear your thoughts on what should be added after hearing the first five.

When uploading files into Microsoft Teams, there are a few gotchas that I wasn’t aware of until I recently tried moving some data into a new Team. I thought sharing these may be of use to others as well.
- If you are moving lots of data, you can only upload 10 files at a time
- The files have to contain content…no empty text documents, for example (although not sure why you’d need these anyway.)
- By default in the Teams client, you will lose any folder structure if doing a wholesale move of files. You can manually create the folder before copying files or use a workaround
- The maximum file size is 15GB. More information about the storage limits can be found in Microsoft documentation.
- Since these files are just housed in SharePoint Online on the backend, the normal SPO limits apply.
