Tips for a successful team in Teams

Create a good base structure

  • What is the main reason for the team? 
  • What does the group need? 
  • Which channels will you have?  ….to start with and why?

Choosing the correct rights and permissions

  • Decide which rights and permissions each member will have with regards to channels, messages and tabs.
  • Always create at least two (2) “owners” of a team.

Understanding channels

  • Discuss the proposed channels with members of your team.
  • Create a clear and meaningful name.
  • Describe the channel and what it shall be used for. 

Communicate clearly within the team

  • Use titles that have a clear meaning to make it easier to understand what they are about 
  • Use the @ to to notify a specific person.  Otherwise the whole team will get the notification of your post. 
  • To answer a post click on “Answer” so that you do not start a whole new conversation.  This way all the threads hang together as well.Click on the A at the bottom of the screen if you wish to change formatting of your post.

Moving Common Files

  • Create a folder for respective files 
  • Upload shared files to the team and remove them from your existing folders so you don’t have multiple documents in multiple places
  • Decide together that from a certain date ALL files will be put into Teams and nowhere else (to prevent multiple copies of documents)
  • If you work a lot with specific files, synchronize your teams files in explorer. That way you can directly access them from your computer.

Notifications in Teams

  • Set up your personal notifications for the entire application, how you want to be notified when someone sends a message to you, etc.
  • Set up channel notifications for the teams/channels you are active in and want to know when someone has updated.

Digital meetings

  • Just as for physical meetings, it is a good idea to prepare an agenda for the meeting.
  • If there are many participants in the meeting, a recommendation is to mute the microphone when you are not speaking. That way, you will avoid any disturbing background noise. When you need to speak, unmute your microphone. If there are only a few participants in the meeting, it will usually be a more active meeting if everyone has their microphones turned on the whole meeting.
  • The meeting will also be more active if all participants have their cameras on. However, if someone has a slow internet connection it may be a good idea to only use the microphone.
  • All participants can use the chat to share documents and links with each other during the meeting. When the meeting is over, the chat is saved, and you can go back to see what was written there.
  • You can share an entire screen, a window, a PowerPoint file, or a Whiteboard with the meeting participants.

Create a “team” in Teams

  1.   Open Teams.  You will find Teams as an app in your computer, or via att log in to Office 365 in your web browser.   Log in with your Umu-id. 
    Log in to Office 365
  2.  In the menu choose  ”Teams
  3. From the menu on the left hand side choose “Teams”
  4. To Join a team or create a team click on  Join or create team (Bottom left hand corner)
    Note that your teams can look a little different in colour and theme


  5. There are four different types of themes.  If the goal is to create a workplace for a workgroup or project you can choose “Other”.
    More information on the types of Teams
     

    Once you have chosen your team type it is time to give your team a Name and a Description (you can change either or both afterwards).  You can also choose if your new Team will be a Private team or a Public team.   This team will be the center for your collaboration.  In every team you can later create different channels for more detailed work.

Anti-spam UmU

On a normal day, the university receives a few million emails, most of which are stopped immediately because the server/address that sent the email has been classified as someone who sends spam. The remaining mail is then analyzed and approx. 10,000 are then classified as spam and stored in the user’s spam quarantine. About 5,000 are classified as phishing. In the end, about 82,000 emails get through.

Of the 10,000 e-mails that are classified as spam, there may be some of these that are correct e-mails but for some reason classified as spam. A likely cause is mail with only links and from mail domains that have not received high trust scores before (e.g. have sent spam or come from a new server).

How to use the filter

If you are missing any mail or want to verify what is in the quarantine go to the following link: security.microsoft.com/quarantine

Log in with your Umu ID and password.

You will then see a list of all the emails that are in quarantine.
Mail in quarantine will sit there 30 days before they are removed.

*NOTE*

You can mark the mail(s) that are not spam and choose to “release” them and ‘whitelist’ the sender so that they do not get stuck in the SPAM filter again, or ‘blacklist’ them and these mails will never come into your inbox. 

Initially, a mail will be sent every day if there are new messages in your quarantine. 

Block or release quarantined email

Publish your personal page in the staff directory

​When you publish your presentation text, profile picture or your own DiVA listings, it is important that you scroll back to the top of your profile page so you can see the Publish profile button. It is this button that publishes your changes, so use it!

Your profile page will not be published when you…

Once you’ve come a bit further down on your profile page, you will no longer see the Publish profile button but rather a gray bar with texts that say, Changes to be published, and a button that says Publish? Do not use this, because your changes will not be published, but will be set in the ready to be published mode. This publishing feature is available in Episerver and is used by editors who have editorial rights in Episerver.

What will happen if I “accidently” click Publish instead of Publish profile?

If you notice that your changes were not visible externally when you visit your profile page (without editing it), you can fix it by Edit profile followed by Publish Profile.
