Microsoft has been introducing a growing number of applications within the Microsoft 365 suite, which can be quite beneficial for various projects and workflow requirements. Most are available at no additional licensing cost. One of the significant challenges is ensuring that you and your users stay informed about these new apps. Lesser-known applications like Microsoft Bookings, Forms, Lists, To Do, and Loop Components have brought about notable shifts in how our KnowledgeWave team collaborates. We are insiders and share what we learn with our members.
SharePoint document libraries serve as the cornerstone of efficient document management, empowering organizations to store, organize, and collaborate on files with the utmost effectiveness. However, fully leveraging the potential of SharePoint document libraries necessitates a comprehensive grasp of their features and capabilities. That's where KnowledgeWave's specialized training on SharePoint Document Libraries comes into play, guiding our students on a transformative journey to become proficient in this vital aspect of SharePoint.
Recently, KnowledgeWave has been extensively discussing and instructing on the use of Microsoft Power BI. It's no surprise, given the exceptional capabilities of Power BI in terms of data visualization, analysis, and integration. We have been providing Power BI training for several years, but the surge in client inquiries has brought more attention to collaboration and report-sharing features. To meet this demand, we launched a Power BI webinar series that is currently in progress for our KnowledgeWave Learning Site members and has already been delivered to several organizations.
SharePoint has emerged as a powerful platform for collaboration, document management, and business process automation. However, to harness its full potential, it's crucial to invest in comprehensive SharePoint training. Training plays a pivotal role in enabling users to unlock the key concepts, functionalities, and best practices of SharePoint. In this comprehensive guide, we will explore the importance of SharePoint training, and its benefits, and provide insights into what you need to know to embark on a successful SharePoint training journey.
SharePoint, being a robust and widely used platform, often presents challenges when it comes to grasping its core fundamentals. At KnowledgeWave, we understand the importance of bridging this knowledge gap for beginner SharePoint users. That's why we offer comprehensive training options tailored to unlock the key concepts and fundamentals needed for success. If you're looking to bring your team up to speed, our expertise extends to essential SharePoint features such as Lists and Libraries. With KnowledgeWave, you can confidently empower your team to master SharePoint Lists and maximize their potential. If you plan on tackling training internally, we recommend the following training guide specific to SharePoint Lists.
Microsoft SharePoint is a powerful collaboration and document management platform widely used by organizations of all sizes. Whether you're a professional stepping into a new role or a manager or department lead that is looking to enhance your or your team’s productivity, understanding the key concepts and fundamentals of SharePoint is essential.
Discover how a comprehensive assessment survey using Microsoft Forms can help you identify user satisfaction with Microsoft Teams, improve adoption, and increase collaboration across your organization. This case study showcases how KnowledgeWave partnered with a client struggling with Teams adoption to identify the driving reasons behind low usage and create a targeted training plan that addressed the specific needs of their end-users. With data-driven results and a formed approach to adoption, you can unlock the full potential of Microsoft 365 and revolutionize your team collaboration.
I geek out on the possibilities with Power Platform. In November 2018, I wrote a post, Connect a Form to a SharePoint List with Microsoft Flow in 3 Steps. We still get a lot of traffic to that post, and I knew it was time to write an update. I mean, Microsoft Flow is called Power Automate now.
If you are deploying, or even considering, Microsoft Phone System, we thought this blog post might be helpful. We tell the story of our Microsoft 365 Business Voice journey, starting with Microsoft Teams and later deploying the Microsoft Phone System to be used within Microsoft Teams on our desktops, on our mobile devices, and on traditional desk phones that are Teams enabled.
The KnowledgeWave team is excited to make training available for the Microsoft Phone System, also referred to as Microsoft Teams Phone. Teams Phone brings the power of traditional PBX systems to a tool that over 145 million of us touch every day, Microsoft Teams! You can make traditional calls from Teams, Outlook, or your mobile phone. Because it’s a PSTN service you can receive your work-based calls within the Teams app, on your PC, your mobile device or a Teams supported device.
Microsoft has done it again!
Microsoft just published last week, news about a refresh of the Office Applications for Microsoft Windows. Aligned with the new release of the Windows 11 first Insider Preview, Microsoft is rounding the edges and shinning up their workhorse Office applications. The refresh of Office, which Microsoft shares will shine on Windows 11, will also be available to anyone using Microsoft Windows 10.
I recently had the pleasure and opportunity to present to members of the Chief Operating Officers (COO) Business Forum based in Michigan, organized by Crown Talent Assets. The COO Forum is a great resource for business executives to explore and learn about new and emerging ideas, solutions, processes, and tools.

As its popularity continues to grow, businesses are using Microsoft Teams to present and (in many cases) are inviting external guests to meetings on the platform. The meeting experience is new for many users, especially the end-user consumer, and the businesses inviting them don’t always understand the attendees’ experience.

As part of our Adoption and Change Management (ACM) practice, we highlight the need to measure for success. It’s even a section on my Office 365 User Adoption Checklist. KnowledgeWave has had the opportunity to beta test Microsoft Productivity Score for the last several months and we are super excited that it’s now available in general release to all Office 365 Administrators. (If you don’t see it hang tight, it’s coming) The use of Productivity Score will help organizations power their digital transformation with metrics that can dive into how users are using modern technology like Microsoft Teams.
Data is a popular topic these days. OK, it has been since the days of the mainframe. We just have more of it now. With so much data being collected across so many locations, a tool like Power BI lets us connect to that data. Power BI enables us to present data visually, and provide intuitive details, insights and modeling examples in a familiar Microsoft Office experience.
