How can CPS help?

In support of such efforts, CPS have created a rapid deployment work package, for Microsoft Teams with short-term end-user and technical support.

Rapid Deployment Options

Both approaches make full use of the ability for all users to use the following capabilities:

• Instant messaging to one or more internal and external users
• Ability to have VOIP calls with one or more internal and external users
• Ability to have conversations within departmental Microsoft Teams
• Ability to mention people in conversations
• Ability to schedule meetings that use Microsoft Teams
• Ability to share screens in instant messaging and meetings

There are two Options for the outcome of the rapid deployment of Microsoft Teams:

Number-1

Restricted capabilities enabled to retain maximum compliance.

This option will see deployment of the solution with pre-defined Teams and Channels (of your choosing) temporarily restricting the ability of end-users to create new Teams, Channels. This limits the complexity for end users and enables effective short-term governance and management of the product whilst offering core vital capabilities of communication and collaboration.

Number-2

All features enabled to maximise potential benefits.

In addition to the above core functionality, Option 2 provides all users the ability to add new Teams, Channels and Tabs (enabling effective integration with wider tools such as OneNote and Planner).
