Communicating with Teams
What are we doing ?
The Communicating with Teams project is replacing the existing telephone equipment with Microsoft Teams. Teams can be used either with a headset plugged into your computer, on a phone, or via an app on your mobile.
During the Autumn Term we shall be running sessions to familiarise people with Teams and the chosen equipment, and then asking for your requirements.
- Awareness sessions and requirements gathering - Autumn Term 2019
- Move Skype for Business users to Teams - weekend of 4/5 January 2020
- Removal of Skype for Business - January 2020
- Headsets and handsets given out - Spring Term 2020
- Migrate all users and collect old equipment - Summer Term 2020
This is for everybody who uses the university telephone system, i.e. everyone with a computer account on the Whiteknights, London Road, Greenlands and Malaysia campuses.
