Microsoft 365 empowers individuals, teams, and organizations to be creative, collaborative, and effective with an integrated suite of experiences that are simple, superior, smart, and secure.
Jeff Teper shares the latest innovations and updates for content collaboration, employee engagement and communications, and knowledge management.
Learn how the experiences in Microsoft 365—including SharePoint, OneDrive, Yammer, Stream, and Office—integrate to power collaboration across devices, on the web, in desktop and mobile apps, and in the hub for teamwork, Microsoft Teams.
The intelligent intranet in Microsoft 365 powers collaboration, employee engagement, and knowledge management. The intelligent intranet is mobile-ready, personalized, social and actionable. Join in and explore innovations like multilingual pages, navigation, news, pages, and broader integrated solutions with Yammer, Stream, and Microsoft Teams.
Discover how every experience can become more collaborative and engaging with the Microsoft 365 platform – starting with SharePoint. SharePoint serves as the center of collaboration – where content is stored and communicated across teams, departments, and the whole organization. See the latest development advancements and new capabilities for SharePoint. You’ll take away new ideas for building next-generation collaboration applications, and get the essential roadmap for custom apps in your organization.

Power Automate flows can do a lot to automate repetitive tasks. But up until now they only worked if there was a pre-built connector with actions that can accomplish the task or at least an existing Appliction Programming Interface API that you could use to build a custom connector. In this talk we'll look at Power Automate's entry into the world of Robotic Process Automation (RPA) called UI flows. Using UI flows You can automate repetitive tasks on your desktop in Windows or a Web application. UI flows record and play back user interface actions, like keyboard entries, mouse clicks, etc. UI flows open up possibilities to automate applications that don't have a pre-built connector or an API.
Cards are in Office 365 for some time already. Originally created as Message Cards after some time rebuilt from nearly a scratch to become Adaptive Cards. Today they can be used in Microsoft Teams and Outlook. This session will let you to learn:
• What is a difference between Message and Adaptive Cards,
• How to design cards,
• How to use them - a working example
• What to expect from the upcoming releases and version vNext (2.0)
Process designers should make their processes as intuitive as possible, allowing their participants to take their part in the most effective way, whether this is an e-mail, Teams conversation or a task somewhere in Office 365. Using Cards helps creating new channel for efficient participation in business processes.

Make the most out of your Teams implementation with a little help from Power Automate! Come learn about automating messages, posting emails, working with channels, and much more. Attendees will leave with ideas they themselves can implement using Teams and Power Automate without any developer experience.
The adoption of Microsoft Teams is a special challenge. Especially in smaller companies with 50-150 employees, different rules apply than in the enterprise sector. Fears and resistance make the rounds faster in the company canteen and so team adoption can quickly become a problem. In my session, I describe our approach and what needs to be paid particular attention to the SMB customers. Many best practice examples complete the presentation.
Are you creating accessible Microsoft 365 solutions and are they easy to use? During this session, I will explain what accessibility is, why Microsoft are focusing on accessibility as a priority, and why inclusivity is so important for all of us. We will look at the different types of accessibility features that help with vision, hearing, mobility and neurological ie autism or dyslexia as an example.
Teams is a great tool for collaboration and teamwork and we can use it in countless scenarios.
But what about data we send through it and store inside it?
In this session I will focus on what happens behind the scenes and how we can protect data/information in Teams:
- Teams data flow - where does Teams store my data?
- Sensitivity and classifications labels in Teams
- I've just deleted my team... - what happens with deleted information and how to take control over it
- DLP - how to avoid data leaks in Teams
- Guest and External users - what's the difference, how they can interact with my data?
There are times where you can’t hold a workshop where you are all in the same place. It may be a global team or it may be that a global virus has everyone stuck at home (who could imagine that happening...) but there are certain tips and tricks you can use to help the meetings run effectively when you can’t all sit round next to each other. I have now run several in this way and while there are still benefits of being face to face, you can be almost as effective in a virtual world.
Microsoft has begun to integrate the various task-based capabilities within the Microsoft 365 ecosystem, creating a consolidated user experience. We're not 100% there yet, but for project managers and task-driven stakeholders, it is important to understand what is available today, how tasks communicate (and don't communicate) with each other across workloads, and where Microsoft is going in the future. This session is a review of task management across the entire Microsoft 365 landscape (Teams, SharePoint, To-Do, Planner, Project, Outlook, and more) to help you understand where tasks are created, integrated, and managed end-to-end.

"Over the last 6 years, we've helped to educate over 120,000 people via our highly popular Collab365 Summits and Conferences."
Access to the 5-Day Summit (15-19 June) and the Beginners Day (20 May) as they play out.
Watch the Sessions when it's over and get all of the content from our Microsoft Teams Summit (+ more).
Here at Collab365 we're passionate about bringing you the latest information about Microsoft Products and Services. We also believe that it should be affordable for all. Our Summits are free to attend (up to 5000) and even then we only charge a nominal fee to help cover the production costs.
they're nice to the planet
We're also doing our bit to help with global warming. Our virtual conferences use a fraction of the Carbon of their physical counterparts. You need power and an internet connection to join in, but there is no travel or accommodation to offset, nor any plastic cups to throw away afterwards.
post conference materials
After each Summit is over we get really busy producing the videos on-demand and creating Companion EBooks to help you learn all year round. We do ask for a small donation to help support the costs of creating these, but it's very affordable and there is no obligation to buy them.
chat with your peers
It's great to just sit back, watch and listen to the sessions, however you can also get involved by joining the discussion in chat or by asking the speaker questions. It's a great way to feel more connected.
watch our expert speakers
We invite speakers from all over the world. Many have made their name and been awarded MVPs or Regional Director status. Others work at Microsoft or have achieved top certifications such as MCT.
get more help when it's over
Some of the Speakers at our Summits also offer consultancy to help you continue your learning on our newest service Collab365 MicroJobs! No matter how big or small your request, they will be happy to help.
Why is it "FREE"? What's the "catch"?
There's no catch at all. We truly believe in bringing education to everyone regardless of budget. If you attend and watch the sessions at their scheduled time, each day is free to watch while it's playing.
Can I watch the sessions when it's over?
Yes, however, to watch the sessions when it's over you will need an "All-Access Pass". These are inexpensive and allow us to offer the main event completely free.
Can I chat while the session is playing?
Certainly! We actively encourage it because this is how you get the most out of the session. The "chat" is positioned to the right of the session video, so doesn't distract. Hundreds log in to chat so that they can chat with their peers and ask the speaker questions.
Can I get personal coaching?
Many of our Speakers also offer their services on Collab365 MicroJobs. This is our freelancer marketplace dedicated to serving the Microsoft community. If you'd like to ask the Speakers more questions or dig in deeper then it's easy to hire them on MicroJobs.
What if I can't make certain days?
Just as with a physical conference, if you can't make the live event you will miss out. If you want to watch any sessions you miss, or want to re-watch them (as many do), then you will need an "All-Access Pass".
Can I download the videos?
You can't download the videos but we do host them in our own platform so you can watch them as they play.
Is this streamed "Live"?
Our sessions are prerecorded to ensure we have the best possible streaming quality and experience. However, our conference platform plays each session as though it is "live", meaning every attendee sees the same second at the same time. This allows our speakers to answer your questions during the presentation without interrupting the flow. Feedback since we switched to this approach has been overwhelmingly positive.
What if the Speaker isn't a Freelancer?
If a particular speaker (such as those that work at Microsoft), don't offer a freelancing service, you can easily find someone with similar knowledge and skill set on MicroJobs.
