The Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts, the largest educational institution in Central Switzerland, introduced MS Teams at the beginning of 2021 and migrated to Exchange Online. The issue of security and compliance was considered the biggest challenge before the rollout.

The nearly 7,800 students and 1,900 employees of the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts should not be able to create countless new teams and Office 365 groups in an uncontrolled manner. At the same time, certain functions and competencies should only be available to employees of the IT Services department. For this purpose, Solutions2Share deployed two different instances of Teams Manager.

Teams Manager features ease of use, a visually appealing interface, and uncomplicated collaboration with the manufacturer. Users at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts can now easily create and manage teams themselves.

  • Olá bom dia Tudo bem?
    Atualmente utilizo várias funcionalidades no teams, porém gostaria de entender melhor se o Teams Manager se aplicaria nas demandas de solicitação de compra e tarefas para nossa equipe de suprimentos.
    Atualmente vários setores realizam via email ou diretamente via chat, porém gostei da apresentação do Teams manager onde poderíamos unificar o controle de solicitação, aprovação e templates de formulários em uma equipe e app.
