March 2017 Chat

Cracking on through the year we’re ready to announce the date & time for March’s Chat – beginning to spot a theme here? This month we have some timezone shenanigans due to summer time & various other clock adjustments but hopefully we’re still hitting a good time of day (Sorry Australia!)

Friday, March 31st 15.30 UTC – Local time here

No agenda, no fixed discussion topics but I suspect CCE updates, Tennant level policies & a few other tidbits will be covered. Feel free to add some comments with suggestions or scenarios that we could cover…

February 2017 Chat

Hey folks,

Ready for the February Fun times? Come join us for February’s friendly UC roundtable / discussions on February 24th & 16.30 UTC (Local time here). Feel free to shoot us some topic suggestions on twitter or in the comments…

This month we have a couple of give aways, first up is a software license for hellodoor’s SfB / Lync integrated door answering solution (runs on any win10 client or their own dedicated hardware). Also, courtesy of Andy from UCDay / CloudUG we have a copy of Keith Hanna’s “Mastering Skype for Business 2015” book to hand out.

Draws will be conducted in the same way as last time by taking the participant list and using an online random list selector tool. To be able to win you must join with an identifiable name (i.e not guest!) and be in the meeting at the time of the draw.

January 2017 Chat

Join us for our January chat…

Anyone welcome, all questions taken. No fixed agenda so make the most of things and bring those burning questions & tricky scenarios.

We’re also thrilled to announce that courtesy of Plantronics we have a Focus UC to give away live during the meeting. We’ll do a dump of the attendee list towards the end of the call and then randomly (probably using powershell knowing Tom) pick a winner.

Introducing … MSUC.Chat

Hello and welcome to a new online usergroup adventure / experiment…

You might be wondering what all of this is about, well let me tell you a story, a story that started with a Yammer (Yes somethings do…!)

yammer

And there you have it – MSUC.Chat was born!

The thinking behind the idea is that while there are plenty of community resources out there (as I’m sure anyone reading this far would agree) they sometimes don’t quite hit the nail on the head. SfB is a complicated product with many different nuances / intricacies and more often than not provides many different ways to achieve a working solution but which one is “correct” or “more correct”??

Wouldn’t it be great if there was a group of people who all worked, lived and breathed this stuff (mostly) 24/7 on hand who could provide immediate feedback on ideas, concerns, queries or anything else to do with SfB? Well that’s what we are hoping to be able to achieve here.

We will run monthly “open-mic” sessions hosted by SfB professionals & hopefully the odd special guest now and again. During the sessions we’ll keep the agenda light and attempt to answer / discuss / dissect and pull apart questions and comments from the floor.

Some keep an eye on the announcement for our first session and we look forward to seeing you there…

Ben, Tom, Iain and Josh…
