Today’s Tech Tuesday

Posted on March 26th, 2018 by tssadmin

Today’s Tech Tuesday is from Barry Wise. Barry has been with IT@NJMS since 2003. He is part of the User Services group, and has been involved most recently in various large scale projects – including the Epic migration, the O365 migration, and the Windows XP upgrade – and has expertise in computer software, hardware, and networking. Today he is going to share with you some information about Microsoft Teams and Planner, two recent functionalities added to Rutgers Connect / Office 365.


I am pleased to present to you, two extremely useful components of our Rutgers Connect / Office 365 rollout, Microsoft Teams and Planner. I think you will find these tools extremely helpful communicating and collaborating with coworkers.


You are invited and encouraged to start using these features right away. If you would like to get started using these tools, you need only place a heat ticket with the helpdesk by emailing or by calling 3-3200. We will get you setup right away.


Microsoft Teams:

With Microsoft Teams on your PC, Mac, or mobile device, you can:

  • Pull together a team.
  • Use chat instead of email.
  • Securely edit files at the same time.
  • Connect with team members through Skype
  • Customize it by adding notes, web sites, and apps.

Microsoft Planner:

  • Take the chaos out of teamwork and get more done! Planner makes it easy for your team to create new plans, organize and assign tasks, share files, chat about what you’re working on, and get updates on progress.
