A big change is coming to the University of Illinois starting May 17. The university will transition from Skype for Business to Microsoft Teams as the university’s primary communication and collaboration tool. Phone functionality is a key component of that transition. The IT community wants to make sure you are ready for the change with Microsoft Teams Day.
- WHAT: Microsoft Teams Day
- WHEN: Friday, February 17, 10 am-2 pm
- WHERE: Huff Hall, Rooms 112 and 114
- WHO: IT Pros, Faculty, Staff, and Graduate Students
During Microsoft Teams Day you can walk around the Hardware Showcase in Huff Hall Room 114 to get a firsthand look at some of the Teams-compatible equipment such as phones, headsets, speakerphones, and cameras. A full list of equipment is also available on the Skype to Teams Migration Transition webpage.
Consultants will be available for one-on-one meetings during the event to answer your questions about equipment and using or setting up Microsoft Teams. No appointment is necessary to attend, just show up between 10 am and 2 pm.
Microsoft Teams Training
There will be three Microsoft Teams training sessions, which will be available online via Zoom and in-person at Huff Hall Room 112. The training is free, but registration is required.
