About SharePoint Saturday Johannesburg

Architects, Developers, IT Professionals, Designers and end-users alike will be able to attend sessions presented by seasoned professionals in their respective fields covering the length and breadth of what you would want to see and experience at this world-class event, run across more than 50 countries across the world.

The 8th event of this kind will take place in Johannesburg, at Microsoft in Bryanston on the 6th of April 2019.

Collaborate to Co-Author Documents, using Microsoft Teams & Microsoft Office

We are proud and excited to be on stage for this event and share our experience, knowledge and talent with the SharePoint Saturday audience. Sasja Beerendonk will hold the session “Collaborate to Co-Author Documents, using Microsoft Teams & Microsoft Office”.

In this session, attendees could learn how to be more effective in ‘Co-authoring documents’ using a mix Office 365 apps OneDrive, Teams and Office. It will also be explained how the complete reviewing process (draft – collaborate – publish) can be done smarter and with a lot more fun by using a mix of great features in Office 365 tools.

Have you ever gotten lost in all the feedback and reviews done on one of your documents? Likely there were many emails with copies of the file, and different people giving their feedback using different tools and options. It’s a mess, and hard to finalise your documents.

There are many apps and possibilities in Office 365 to make co-authoring a smooth and effective process. But many employees lack the digital skills, or are stuck in old habits and using outdated tools. This session goes beyond the real-time co-editing feature possible in Office Online or sharing a file through OneDrive. It focuses on a real-to-life work scenario, where people discover what a combination of Office 365 tools can do to improve their everyday work. Learn how teams can re-think the tools and practices they use today and how they can work together efficiently on documents with all the great new features of Office 365 to achieve a better process and result.

It will be a great session, so do not miss it if you are based in Johannesburg! And if that’s too far, don’t worry! Sasja will stream her session live by organizing a Microsoft Teams Live Event!

Webinar: Insight into Sales Meetings Done Smarter: Meeting Notes with Microsoft Teams and OneNote

Last week our senior consultant Sasja Beerendonk held a webinar Insight into Sales Meetings Done Smarter: Meeting Notes with Microsoft Teams and OneNote
The workshop was focused on insights into how to do sales meetings smarter sharing the real-life experience of an international Silverside customer Omron Healthcare. She presented the concrete methodology used to help the customer achieve what they needed regarding sales meetings.
Silverside philosophy teaches that first, you should learn how to use in the best way the tools you already have to work smarter. However, sometimes, from Silverside working practice we see that this is one of the most challenging actions for users in a process of changing the way of working.

In the specific case of Omron Healthcare, an international client spread out across EMEA, the sales organization wanted better insights from meetings held with large customers or resellers of their products.
They needed more alignment between the regions and countries sales meetings. The current practice meant each regional or even sub-regional team had their own way of working, with many different forms of meeting notes taking, in many different formats (Word, Excel, paper-based, or other forms), and in many locations (laptop hard drives, shared network drives). Consequently, there was no single place to be able to find all sales meeting notes.
The solution? Using OneNote notebooks in each channel in Microsoft Teams where salespeople share their meeting notes for that region. Subsequently, each regional notebook is set up, with section groups, sections, and pages.
By watching this webinar, you will be able to learn practical Office 365 Client Use Case and specifically, centralizing sales meeting notes with Teams and OneNote.
Moreover, you will know more about how to design the Team channels and tabs, structure the OneNote notebook with specific access rights for section groups and using page templates. Lastly, another key benefit that this webinar offers is concrete information on how salespeople went through training, and what typical current behaviour was though to tackle.

The entire webinar has been recorded and can be watched for free just by creating a free account through this link:
