Tips to make working from home easier

Given the current situation with COVID -19, a lot of us are working from home. To make this easier for us all, Microsoft have a range of products within Office 365 that can make this transition a smooth one and keep us efficiently working from home. Here are some tips on how to make working from home easy with Microsoft.

Dress the part

Wear work clothes when you are working from home as this will allow you to quickly jump onto a video conference on Microsoft Teams. This will also put you in the right headspace in order to draw the line between work and home. Don’t worry as you can probably get away with still wearing pyjama bottoms!

Say goodbye to VPN’s

Move your corporate file shares into SharePoint and your team shares into Microsoft Teams. This will enable your team to collaborate anytime, anywhere and on any device. 

Collaborate in real time

Learn to co-author with your colleagues so that you can work together. Working on the same document together will increase efficiency and get the job done faster! 

Make focus time count

Schedule your focus time with MyAnalytics. Make sure you start work on time and set yourself breaks using the MyAnalytics add-in in Outlook.

Stay socially connected

Stay connected to your colleagues with Yammer. Keep everyone updated with announcements and create polls to engage with your teammates. Let everyone know what’s on for the day by posting a picture update!

Equipment matters

Get the right equipment for your staff who are working from home. It makes a huge difference when you can hear someone and speak clearly over an online meeting with noise-cancelling headphones.

Don’t forget to socially distance!

And finally, remember to stay safe! No matter where we work from, we want to make sure we regularly wash our hands for 20-30 seconds and minimise the amount we touch our faces. 

Bonus tip

Gather your team for virtual after-work drinks on Fridays with Microsoft Teams. You can still have fun with your teammates by playing fun games like Pictionary using the Microsoft Whiteboard feature and Charades with your video camera turned on. It would be great to see your best drawings and sketches so post them with a tag to our social media pages #virtualafterworkdrinks
