You can also use permissions-based content and context, which is another straightforward move that will allow you to get more out of your Microsoft Teams deployment than ever. This technique allows you to set permission for not only entire types of documents, but for individual items. Note that you can even set these permissions for different versions of the same documents. So if you wanted to assign permissions that give different levels of access to different types of users (like for hourly employees versus managers, for example), there's absolutely nothing stopping you from doing so based entirely on the context of the project that you're working with at the time. In the end, remember that absolutely none of this is to say that Microsoft Teams itself is inherently problematic. Quite the contrary, in fact — it's an invaluable communication and collaboration tool that is especially helpful during a time when more people are working remotely than ever before. When your employees are spread out in so many different locations now and in the future, Teams is the perfect opportunity to bring them all back together again in a virtual sense... provided you understand the limitations that Teams has when implemented in a rogue, slipshod manner. Once you have a clear strategy in place, you need to focus on factors like user education and really call out the collaboration benefits for your users. You need to make sure they're aware of the SharePoint implications and help them see how Teams fits into the business processes they're already comfortable using. Work with your IT team to balance your existing policies with the new level of flexibility that Teams can bring to your enterprise. Really think about what external sharing means in this new context and above all else, make sure you have the right tool by your side like an information management platform to make everything that much easier. If you're able to do that, it won't matter that your employees are all working remotely or if remote work becomes the "new normal." People will have access to any critical piece of data at any time, in any location and from any device. They'll be able to be every bit as productive in the comfort of their own homes as they could be in the office — and rest assured that this is a very exciting position for any modern enterprise to be in. 7 Keys to Getting the Most from Your Microsoft Teams Deployment SHARING
