Most of us these days live in two different worlds: in one world, our professional life, in the other we have our private life. Synchronizing our calendars, contacts and the to-do list items between these two worlds can be a struggle. Microsoft Flow can help. It's an easy-to-use, intelligent workflow service allowing you to quickly create workflows, automating manual tasks that take a lot of our time.
Background Blurring in Teams
Video chat is a great way to have a very personal form of communication. But finding the right place for a professional video chat is not always easy. A new feature in Microsoft Teams allows you to blur your background while you're in a video chat. It helps your participants stay focused on you, not what's going on in the background.
Microsoft WHO Bot
Companies are becoming flatter and flatter. Finding the right person in your organizational hierarchy is a big challenge and very time-consuming. With "WHO", Microsoft's new bot, you can unlock your organizational structure to find the right person at the right time within moments. It saves you hours of searching by email or talking to supervisors or team members.
