Project Cortex is coming, and for those organisation’s using Teams, a large amount of organisational information and knowledge is captured in this service.

A Hub to Rule all your Tasks: Tasks in Teams
Teams has become not only the modern workplace collaboration hub, but also the central location where every user can manage his/her tasks no matter if we are talking about personal tasks or team tasks. In this session I will make a lap around Tasks in Teams, the new App to manage in Teams all your tasks coming from Microsoft To Do and Planner. I will review the new user experience when working with Tasks in Teams and how this App is integrated in the platform to empower every user to centrally manage all his/her tasks. And of course, I will be answering any question you might have about this new App

Minimise the human error – maximise human collaboration: Teams as a Platform for modern teamwork
So you’re now using Teams – chatting, having meetings, discussing in channels… How about taking your Teams adoption to the next level? In this session we’ll take a look at Teams as a Platform and start thinking about how we can utilise the Power Platform in Teams to develop our modern teamwork even further! I’ll share ideas of some typical manual processes every team and project has and how those could be automated in Teams. We’ll go through some real life examples of human errors and how to avoid those with the help of Power Platform (in Teams, of course). In the centre of it all is still the concept of modern teamwork and human collaboration: how are we able to help our employees to do their jobs easier, faster and better? This session is focused on why, not how. We are not going deep into technical details – but I promise there will be lots of demos!
