Opening your eyes is the hardest part — to the fact that the workplace is now virtual, that people are spread across office sites with some fully remote, but mostly, that a perspective change is required to succeed in this new reality.

📣 FINALLY you have the ability to create async "Video Mail" in Microsoft Teams chat! For years, as part of our hybrid skills workshops, we have been teaching teams how to incorporate Video Mail into their hybrid and remote team communication toolkit since it's an especially great way to provide info without scheduling yet another meeting.

Use the instructions below, or click on the link in the comments to download a learning aid that has step by step instructions with screenshots to share with your team.

Instructions:
1️⃣ Create or go to an existing 1:1 or Group MS Teams Chat
2️⃣ Click on the camera icon button that is positioned directly next to the send "arrow" button
3️⃣ A new window will pop open. Hit the red record button.
4️⃣ When finished, hit the red pause button. Choose to review your clip and record it again if needed. Trim the beginning or end of the clip as needed.
5️⃣ Click the send "arrow" button to post the video clip within the chat thread.

Upsides:
✅ Integrated into chat → can be sent to 1:1 Microsoft Teams chats or group chats
✅ Very easy to use

Downsides:
❌ Maximum recording length is 1 minute
❌ Can't screenshare
❌ Can't share in MS Teams Channels, only Chat

Calls to Action:
💡Try a Video Clip instead of scheduling an FYI or Update meeting
💡Use a Video Clip to say hello to a colleague you haven't talked to in a while
