New IT training available for all employees

Update | Tuesday, July 20, 2021

Information Technology (IT) is offering three virtual technology training sessions available for Office 365 apps: Creating a team in Teams, Optimize your task management with Planner, and Manage schedules in Shift. These sessions are available in a Microsoft Teams meeting on several dates and times. Registration takes place in Cornerstone. (If needed, see this guide for search and registration tips on Cornerstone.)

And If you are already using Planner or Shifts regularly, IT would like to hear from you. Please email them if you have any use cases or examples that you think they should share with attendees.
