Seven tips for getting started

  1. Think about end users. What tools do they need now to get the job done?
  2. Consider the discussion groups and especially the channels ready for the Teams, so that the implementation would be as successful as possible
  3. After 6 months of Trial, you can easily move forward in terms of licensing technology, prepare for the continuation in autumn 2020
  4. Do you also want email from your domain to Office 365? You can do it now or later
  5. Are the users’ devices in good condition? Microsoft Teams needs a good headset and webcam
  6. Is the security in order? This would be a great time to check your business situation
  7. Reserve enough time. Get to know the services and its possibilities. Ask the experts.

Getting started is pretty easy, but for the future for using Office 365 with your own domain, sync users, or email migrations are time consuming and require good planning. We at Sulava can help with all the further developments related to Office 365, so feel free to contact us!
