Microsoft Community Office Hours, Episode 28

For the 28th episode of Microsoft Community Office Hours series, Sean McDonough, MVP (@spmcdonough), took the lead with Hal Hostetler, MVP (@TVWizard) and Mike Nelson, MVP (@MikeNelsonIO), while Neil and I attended the North American Collaboration Summit (collabsummit.org) in Branson, Missouri. While they did not live stream the session, they did answer a number of questions asked from the office 365 Community group on Facebook.

If you have any question you would like us to address in an upcoming panel discussion, 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.
