Teams is a chat-based collaboration tool that provides teams with the ability to work together and share information via a common space. You can utilise features like document collaboration, one-on-one chat, team chat, and more.
You can organise your conversations and files into different topic areas called Channels. Teams also allows you to host meetings and invite external collaborators to join in your Team.
Switching between content isn’t quite as simple as you might expect it to be.
If you’re sharing some content live, you can’t add multiple pieces of content to the queue at once — which would be ideal.
For example, if you were sharing a PowerPoint and wanted to switch to sharing an application like Word or Browser, you would ideally want to queue up the Browser window in the queue and then send it live once you were finished with the PowerPoint.
However, you can’t do this.
What you can do is click ‘stop sharing’. This will stop sharing your content and the attendees will see this screen while you find your next piece of content to share.
N.B. if you were displaying your video next to your content using the ‘content left’ view, your video will then be shared full screen with attendees while you find the next piece of content to share.
You can then click ‘share’ again and pick the next piece of content which will be pushed straight into live – so be aware of this.
If you are sharing content, you can queue your live video and then click 'Send live' (whilst you are selecting your next piece of content to share). This creates a more seamless transition, without showing attendees the 'live event will continue in a moment' screen.
N.B. It's also worth noting that when content is being shared during the live event, if a Producer or a Presenter clicks 'share' and selects some different content, this will push straight into the live and attendees will see the content. Therefore, you'll want to do a rehearsal of your event beforehand and make sure each member of the teams knows the timings for actions such as sharing and when their video is going to be live.
