M365 Tips: Q1 2021

Did you know – Teams

Got a messy office/work environment but no time to straighten up before your next video Teams meeting? No problem! Before joining the Teams meeting, click on the 3 dots in the upper right corner, select the “Apply background effects” option, then either blur your background, or select from several options to replace your background. No more mess!

Did you know – Email Scheduling

You can schedule your email to Send at a specific date and time. From the web Outlook app, compose your email. Then, click the drop-down arrow in the blue Send box in the lower left-hand corner of your email. Click the ‘Send Later’ option and select your preferred date and time. You can do this from the desktop (Options>Delay Delivery), but you’ll need to be logged in at the scheduled delivery time.

Did you know – Backups

Whether you only use 365 for email, or you use OneDrive, or SharePoint, you need backups! Microsoft can recover your documents if MS goes ‘down,’ but you can’t call them up for the Excel doc you accidentally deleted two months ago, the Word document that’s now corrupted, or that critical email you deleted. You need backups!
