SIPPIO is always looking to gain productivity improvements. Here’s our favorite new Microsoft Teams features for presentations and phone systems.

Microsoft Teams enhanced it’s PowerPoint sharing features this month with a new Grid View feature, making it easier to navigate presentations. While in a call and presenting a PowerPoint deck, you can now skip certain slides, moving forward or backward within the deck, with the new grid view for presenters. To use grid view in a meeting, choose the PowerPoint option when starting to share your content.

Next select the “Go To Slide” option in the lower left corner of the presentation to see a thumbnail view of each slide.

Choose the thumbnail that you would like. You will head to that location even if not the next slide in the deck.

  • Remote provisioning and sign in for Teams Display from Teams admin center.
