Having an effective collaboration tool is crucial for any organization, and especially in today’s age of remote work.

These two products are individually key to helping teams communicate effectively, but they can become more powerful when used together.

4. Top 5 Whiteboard Apps for Microsoft Teams Meetings by Adrian Valencia

Whether your organization is sticking to work from home or starting to go back to the office and shift to a hybrid work setup, being able to have interactive and fun virtual meetings is critical. With an office setup, we have whiteboards in our meeting rooms so everyone can collaborate and share ideas. This keeps everyone connected and present. With the shift to remote work, it can be harder to keep your team focused and connected when there are no visuals on-screen.

Microsoft recently announced a new Teams meeting feature called share-to-stage where you don’t just share your screen but also provides a real-time collaboration space for your participants to interact. It’s like having a unified virtual whiteboard on which everyone can brainstorm and take notes. With this, online meetings can have a space for collaboration where people can share ideas, thoughts, and present visuals regardless of where they’re joining from.

One of the biggest announcements Microsoft has had this year related to Microsoft Teams is the upcoming Microsoft Teams Connect, a.k.a. Shared Channels. Scheduled on the roadmap to be released during November 2021, this new capability will make it possible to work with people in and outside of your organization in a shared channel. The most exciting part is that externals do not have to switch tenants or be added with a guest account!

If you have customers, partners, or vendors you collaborate with primarily via a single channel in a guest Team and use chat & files, this is something to seriously look into as it’ll considerably streamline collaboration.
