Mastering Microsoft Teams Administration and Information Architecture

One of the collaboration strengths of Microsoft Teams is its relatively simple hierarchy, focused on improving small team (inner loop) collaboration and communication. However, organizations still need to be thoughtful about how they align their broader information architecture (IA) across all Office 365 workloads.

In the first half of the workshop led by Microsoft MVP and collaboration expert Christian Buckley, we will walk through the out-of-the-box administrative, compliance, and auditing capabilities of Microsoft Teams to ensure that participants are aware of the capabilities (and limitations) of Teams administration.

During the second half of the day, we will outline the core tenets of your O365 IA (for most organizations, built within SharePoint) and discuss how these translate across the other workloads, and specifically Microsoft Teams. We’ll cover where the information lives, who has access, and how Teams impacts your long-term information management strategy.

Participants will walk away with a better understanding of:

  • The administration capabilities in Teams, from provisioning through archiving
  • The impacts of naming conventions between SharePoint, O365 Groups, Teams
  • Where new site templates and capabilities work best with across workloads
  • How site hierarchies, organization patterns, and unique permissions translate across workloads
  • Why content life-cycles, and possible retention/disposition strategies, and bloated structures impact  content freshness and usability, as well as long-term search and discovery
  • How metadata, taxonomy, navigation, and data management are still important — even within a flat Teams hierarchy
  • Ongoing administration issues and best-practices
