We’re designing a new office layout — and Anya added a new mythical critter: a turkey, chicken, duck, bee, pig, sheep!
You ever navigate away from a discussion and realize you needed to go back — or not quite remember where you just posted that message? Teams now has a “Back” button — in the upper left-hand corner of the Teams client, you can click back and forth to navigate between the last 12 channels/chats you’ve visited.
Teams now shows the timezone offset and local time for individuals — because it’s always 2AM somewhere!
The contact card that comes up when you click on a user in Microsoft Teams now includes the current local time and time zone offset information for the individual — very useful to avoid ringing someone up at 2AM.
Anya’s school work submission platform limits files to ten meg – when she embedded a dozen 3d images in a single presentation to create a seventy meg file? That was an easy fix – drop the 3d object down to a PNG. But her most recent presentation was just photos from the web, and it was just over the ten meg limit. Fortunately (or unfortunately in this case) the more recent Office document formats are already compressed … so you cannot just zip up the file to shrink it. We learned a quick way to reduce the size of a PowerPoint presentation.
Select one of the pictures in the presentation. On the “Picture Format” tab, find the “Compress Pictures” button.
If you know there is one really high-resolution picture (or a single picture where you cropped out most of it), selecting just that picture and leaving “apply only to this picture” checked makes sense. But, generally, I apply the compression to all images. Select a resolution that’s reasonable – we’ve used “Print” and reduced an eleven meg file to just over four meg. Using “Web” as the resolution reduced the file to just over a meg.
