Thank you again for your willingness to pilot MS Teams with us!

During the pilot, you will have both Teams and Skype on your computer. You’ll use Teams to communicate to other pilot members, and you will continue to use Skype as you normally do to chat with the rest of [Company] and third parties.

This week:

Please preview this brief Pilot Expectations and Testing document before the Feb. 24 launch.

Next week, February 24:

  • Launch day – February 24 – the MS Teams desktop app will be automatically added to your PC.
  • Start using and testing Teams, following the scenarios in the testing document.
  • Continue collaborating in Teams through March 20, documenting your experience along the way in the online feedback form.
