Microsoft Community Office Hours, Episode 26

For the 26th episode of Microsoft Community Office Hours series, I was once again joined by Sean McDonough, MVP (@spmcdonough), Hal Hostetler, MVP (@TVWizard), Eric Riz, MVP (@rizinsights), and Mike Nelson, MVP (@MikeNelsonIO) in a panel discussion shared via live stream in the Office 365 Community on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/Office365Community/).

If you have any question you would like us to address, you can send them to OfficeHours@CollabTalk.com 

If you like this format, be sure to join us every Monday at 8am. The ask-me-anything (AMA) format allows us to connect with each other and also help anyone in the community with questions about Microsoft products and services. If you have questions about Microsoft products or services, please feel free to post them here, on the FB page, or send to me via Twitter or FB direct message.
