If you are sharing in a teams meeting an image and need to change to an spreadsheet do you have to unshare and reshare or is there a better way to toggle?
Thank you for this video! My prof will be using this app and i have no idea what it is. This is a great help 💖
Please help. I work on a MacBook but the 'assignment feature' does not show in my Teams app. How do I solve this?
Erin M
Erin M:
Kevin, idk if you see this or if you have ANY pull.... but please..... is there any way that we can color code teams chats so, at a glance, we can see if we are messaging a group of people or individuals. Like making a chat that has your boss in it RED so you don't accidently say something, etc.

Hi thank you for great video my teams does not have a calendar tab?
Hey Kevin.. I’ve learnt a lot from your uploads. My college in the uk are using ms teams. However, they’ve decided to remove access to key elements such as creating groups. As such I’m finding it hard to explore the best method for teaching my learners. Can you suggest ideas? Cheers

Hey, just a quick question about Webex as I can see you previously made a tutorial on it. Is there a way to accept donations/payments after a session on Webex? either through using an integrated feature or a 3rd party app that works well. Something like POWR on zoom for example, do you know of any way to accept donations on Webex? Thanks for the videos and your help.

Great Tutorial, just wanted to know if we record a meeting, do any other people get access to that recording, or is it just me?

Amelia Setiadharma
Amelia Setiadharma:
Hi, thanks for all the videos about teams.. help me a lot with my kid's online class.. like, A LOT.. since what the school told us about teams was very basic.. sorry if my question is off topic, but is there a way to know if there's someone who keeps on kicking the other attendee out of the class? Because sometimes it just happens way too often.. and we're always told that it is because our signal is bad.. which sometimes I don't buy it.. maybe not the other attendee to see, but the admin or whoever created the class? Thanks a whole lot again!
How did you get this design? I still have the old purple side bar in teams.

Côté Lisa:
thanks for all the videos. Is that possible to see how to create personal data directory. I used Forms to get them and Excel. But when they update 1 got double names. have you an idea of ​​how to update without duplicate?
First off, your videos are amazing, thank you. But do you know if/when Microsoft will eventually phase out desktop apps? I'd much rather use web browser teams but it's terrible compared to the desktop app, will they eventually focus on browser over desktop?

very useful. Thank u
Another great video Kevin. I have a question...I am trying to set up a Team with so that I can train some govt employees that are not part of my organization, although their agency uses Teams and I use Teams. I have invited them as guests, generated codes, etc...but I cannot get it to work. I'm sure it is "PICNIC" (Problem in Chair, Not in Computer) but I am fresh out of solutions. Any thoughts? Thanks!!!
7:58 No options for Background filters is visible. Is this a plug in one has to get???
Great video.
Once i use teams, but te other persons do not see me. They ONLY see a black screen. Can you Help me?
Jerry Rosenzweig
Jerry Rosenzweig:
We're just adopting within our company. One thing we're noticing, which might be related to the version rolled out, is that when we have meetings with video, all of the people (small video blocks) are shown on the bottom bar. This is not productive in that we're looking down when checking for their attention/reactions vs being able to have that bar with attendees across the top. Can this be changed? I've not been able to figure it out.
Bradley Smith
Bradley Smith:
Hi Kevin, I wanted to ask you if its possible in Teams to add a banner on my screen while I am speaking on video calls. For example, with my name and title, or with the current topic thats being discussed. Or even, if we have an online video quiz to show the current question while the viewers can still see my face and video stream in the same window. Do you have any ideas? Love your channel, great job! Brad - Spain.
Sumbo Williams
Sumbo Williams:
Hi Kevin, Can you help? I am organizing training in my organization for 1 week, with 2 sessions running concurrently (11am - 1pm). Unfortunately, today, I was only able to download attendance in Session 1 and not the other (hopping/switching between sessions). Plus the recording of session II did not upload in the chat section after the training ended.(a colleague, not me started and ended the recording). Where/How can I get recording and attendance for Session II?
Heli Nascimento
Heli Nascimento:
Hello. One of the meetings that I do with TEAMS has a group in one large room. Every time that someone in the call speaks we hear an echo. It is terrible. To avoid the echo, they need to mute the room mic. Is there another way to cancel this echo? Thx
