Last week, Microsoft rolled out some major features and announced several updates that will be coming soon to Teams. Quite a few of the features are related to the eventual upgrade from Skype for Business to Teams, such as unified presence, out of office info, and improved call notifications. Microsoft also started rolling out the new Microsoft Teams and Skype for Business Admin Center, which will help administrators manage both workloads centrally with additional functionality.

Quadrotech started using Microsoft Teams in October 2017. Since then, it’s been adopted by departments and individuals as a way to share knowledge, collaborate, and manage daily tasks as well as long-term projects. Paul Robichaux, Quadrotech CTO, sat down with Microsoft MVP Tony Redmond, to have a chat about Quadrotech’s experience using Teams over the past five months.
