We have known this for several months now... Skype for business will no longer be maintained by Microsoft, because Teams is taking over all the communication features.

Now several questions come to mind: How do I maintain the routine I had with Skype? Will I find all the same features and tools in Teams? What is different now?

We will see that Teams is much more than a simple communication tool and that it gradually responds to users' needs better. Are you willing to face the challenge of change?

Means and Methods:

  • The session is carried out remotely with a virtual classroom tool
  • The trainer conducts the live session enabling interactions and questions with students

Training Objectives:

  • The observation of communication habits in Skype
  • Discover the similarities and differences between the two applications.

Training Content:

  • The benefits of using Microsoft Teams
  • Why Teams is not just a tool for audio/video calls?
  • The recommendations of Microsoft for a smooth transition
  • Conclusion

Hello, everyone. I'm Thomas and welcome to this webinar about Skype VS Teams. So let's begin right now.
00:00:21
Before we begin, as you may have noticed your microphones are muted in order not to have any background noise on this webinar. Also remember to stay active on your computer or else your computer will go stand-by mode and you'd be disconnected from the session.
00:00:41
Today we have 30 minutes. So why Teams has the same possibilities as Skype. Also, the benefits of using Teams.
00:00:54
Then we will be comparing the audio, video and meeting functionalities.
00:00:59
How to make the transition from Skype to Teams easier and in the end a little conclusion. The goals for today are to identify the similarities and differences between those two softwares and how to be prepared for the transition from Skype to Teams.
00:01:20
So we have Skype and we have Teams. What are Skype and Teams? Why does Teams have the same functionalities as Skype? What will happen to Skype?
00:01:34
And the updates and evolutions possible. To begin with, what are Skype and Teams. Skype is a communication chat, audio and video call online meeting application. Teams is more is a more compressive tool, which was created when Microsoft
00:01:54
wanted to simplify the access to the Office 365 functionalities that where richer every day.
00:02:02
So the idea is to give to the user an application in which it will be possible to choose apps and to centralize the messages and documents. Why does Teams have the same functionalities as Skype?
00:02:22
So still in the idea of simplification, Teams will have Skype's functionalities.
00:02:30
Users will have a unique space for conversations, contacts, files and will be able to work at maximum capacity. What will happen to Skype? The different announcements about Skype are a bit alarmist. Skype will not disappear in a matter of days. You don't after users that Skype will disappear.
00:02:51
Outside of Office 365, Microsoft now gives a Skype server 2019 for companies that want Skype on promise with dedicated servers.
00:03:03
Updates and evolutions? With the office 365 version, there won't be any maintenance or updates and all the efforts will now go to Teams.
00:03:16
Even if Teams is not yet seen as reliable or innovative, it will soon be. As a proof, the fact that certain functions now exist in Teams and not in Skype. For example, blurred backgrounds on live calls.
00:03:35
So on Skype and Teams, what are the differences? On Skype and on Teams, we have the instant messaging, the availability status indicator, the audio and video call, the online meeting, the meeting planification, the SIP Telephony
00:03:56
and the large scale meetings. But on Teams, we will have a bit more things. So we will have a collaborative space, the discussion channels, the documented storage, the integrated calendar, the application launcher
00:04:16
and the ability to edit and co-edit documents.
00:04:24
So, we have the communication part in which Skype is already doing a good job for which Teams has the same possibilities. And we will have the collaboration part in which Teams is better than Skype because it has more possibilities, more functionalities.

00:04:44
The benefits of using Teams: we have the exchange between teams, the collaborative tools,
00:04:56
the Office 365 applications' integration, the third-party applications' integration,
00:05:04
the workspace personalization,
00:05:09
the access to different tenants and also a single login to all of our tools and documents.

00:05:09

00:05:21
I can see that there are a lot of people that don't have any sound. If anyone has sound can you tell me in the chat box on the top of the screen or else we will continue the training session.
00:05:48
So I can see that a lot of people have sound, so just some people have problems, so we will go on and they will have the little recording of the streaming session. So it will be OK. So now we are going to compare Skype and Teams.
00:06:09
So the things that are already on Skype, we will see them directly on Teams. I'm going to put Teams on the screen.
00:06:23
So we are right here on Teams. I will go on the Teams tab on the left so we will begin freshly direction Teams.
00:06:33
Just the time for it to load and we will see it in a few seconds.
00:06:45
So we have the Teams tab. It is where the collaborative work is going to happen, but also the communication. We want to know here what are the differences on functionalities that are the same on Skype and Teams.
00:07:06
We are going to see it right now by clicking on the left on the chat tab. The chat tab is going to be for the instant messaging. So to begin with, as you can see on the top, we have two sorts of tabs. We have the recent tab with all recent the conversations.
00:07:47
and with the three little dots, I can add a contact to this group. So I can click on it, I choose someone which I have as a contact, like Amaury. I click on "add" and then, as you can see, Amaury is now in my web contacts. But also
00:08:08
some things that I can do: at the bottom, you can see "create a new contact group".
00:08:16
So I choose a name, let's say "webinar group".
00:08:22
I click on "create".
00:08:26
And now I have, as you can see on the left, right here, webinar group. Once again, I can click on "options", "add a contact to this group". I choose someone an I can add him directly into this group and, of course, like it's on Skype. I have my different groups, my different people. I can
00:08:47
talk to all of them, like you used to do on Skype. Let's go on, on the instant messaging. What can we do in here?
00:08:57
Let's go with Pierre. As you may know, I can send simple message. Once again, I'm going to say "hello" to Pierre.
00:09:08
But on the bottom I will have a few more possibilities than on Skype.
00:09:13
To begin with, I have the possibility to format my text. I can put it in bold, in italics, underline it. But a few more possibilities to highlight, change the font color, the font size, etc. Like a little text paragraph.
00:09:32
Of course I can attach different documents from my OneDrive or even uploaded from my computer like I used to do before. As you know, I have the little emojis that are available and the little GIF. The GIF, I can just click on it and different GIFs will appear.
00:09:53
I can choose one of them to send it directly.
00:09:58
I have the stickers, which are little images.
00:10:03
And lastly I have schedule a meeting. If I click on "schedule a meeting", as you can see, a new window will appear. We are going to talk about the this window a bit further into the training session, but at least you know it's here.
00:10:20
Then we have the three little dots, the messaging extension, and if I click on I can add different little applications directly to my conversation: news, places, stocks, weather, Wikipedia search and also YouTube.
00:10:38
And, I can create my messaging to be a little more structured than on Skype. It will not simply be different sentences. Now I can put it in bold, highlight, change font, etc. So I can really do a little text rather than
00:10:58
just sentences.
00:11:01
Still, on the instant messaging, I will find back in the tab on the top, as you can see, the Files tab.
00:11:10
I will find right here the different files that I have shared with Pierre. I can click on "share" from OneDrive or my computer and, right here, I will be able to share documents with Pierre and I will find them all here. On Skype, we did not have this
00:11:31
to find back the documents, while here we can. It will be a little files library with my colleagues and co-workers. Of course, with the little plus button at the top I can add a new tab from different applications: Excel, OneNote, PDF,
00:11:52
Power BI, etc. We will have the ability, into the conversation, to have those different applications directly in it. So no need to talk on Teams and then go online and on applications, then share documents. No, I can just go directly into the instant messaging on Teams and work from here.
00:12:12
I won't have to use 3, 4, 5 different applications to work with my colleagues. I can go on Teams to do all of this directly.
00:12:23
But also aside from the instant messaging, I will have the possibility on the top right, as you can see, to call my colleagues, my coworkers. So the audio call and so I can, as you may know, share my screen. If I call here, for example,
00:12:45
so I click on it and it takes a few seconds to load, as you can see on the bottom, I can use the little "share" button and they have the three little dots that we will see a bit later during the training session as well. Now let's go directly into the "meetings" tab
00:13:05
on the left.
00:13:08
So, in the "meetings" tab, first things first, we will find on the left all of the different meetings that I have scheduled. They are scheduled on Teams or even on Outlook. I will be able to find all of my Outlook meetings directly into Teams.
00:13:30
So it will be all on the left and if I click on it, I will find those meetings information, so the day, the hour etc. But I can find the different attendees and also the different information that I put in it, like maybe in which room is the meeting, etc.
00:13:52
I can change the views of my calendar. Right here, it's today. But if I click on the three little lines on the left for the agenda view,
00:14:02
as you can see we have for the whole month: today, tomorrow, Friday, etc.
00:14:10
Right here on the right, on the information pages, I will have the possibility to chat with the participants. So it will open a conversation, cancel the meeting if I'm the organizer. But if I'm not, if I'm an attendee, I will be able to accept it, put it on hold or even
00:14:31
say I won't be present.
00:14:33
We have the little links on the bottom. If I click on it, I will join these Teams meetings via Teams online. So it will be like you used to do on Skype when you sent links and you'll be able to click on them to access the meeting. On the top right, we have "Join".
00:14:54
I will be able with this button to join the meeting directly on Teams being the software or the application.
00:15:01
Now, I want to create, to schedule a new meeting. I will click on the bottom left,
00:15:11
"Schedule a meeting". First of all, the title. Let's say, customer meeting.
00:15:19
The location will be on Microsoft Teams meeting, so directly into Teams, or I can see it will be in room 1 or 4, for example.
00:15:31
When does it start and end? At which hour for the beginning and the end? I have the same scheduling assistant that I used to have on Outlook. So let's invite Amaury, Pierre and then I click on the scheduling assistant and I will find back the scheduling assistant
00:15:52
like in Outlook, but directly into Teams once again.
00:15:57
Then I can change the time zone, as you can see, but also, on the bottom, I can add details with the same formatting possible as we saw just before on the instant messaging.
00:16:13
On the right, we have "select the channel to meeting". So the channel, we have all of the different Teams channel right here. I can click, for example, on "call for tenders" and they have the general channel. I can select it and you'll understand just after why I did it.
00:16:34
And as you know, I can invite some people right here.
00:16:38
So let's just put it in a business team right here.Share once again and maybe Amaury, well Paul. Perfect. I have Paul and Pierre in my meeting in the business team general. Let's schedule this meeting.
00:17:00
It's now loading and automatically I'm back in the Teams tab, as you can see on the left, and on the top I have business team and the general channel. As you can see right here, my meeting that I've just created, the customer meeting is now directly integrated into this team.
00:17:21
So I can and everybody in this channel, this team will be able to do it as well, I can just click on it
00:17:32
and I will have "chat with the participants", but it will bring me back into the same channel as I was a few seconds ago, and I can click on "join". I click on "join".
00:17:43
I'm able to activate my video feed or audio feed and I can click on "Join Now".
00:17:53
I'm connecting to the meeting.
00:17:57
And on the bottom, once again audio, video call and I have the "share tray". In the share tray, I be able to share my screen, 1 or 2, but also my windows.
00:18:12
I can also share my PowerPoints, like I used to do on Skype, and on the right we have the White Board. The White Board, which is not directly from Skype but by 3N by envision, will be a white board quite similar to what we used to have on Skype but
00:18:33
with a few more possibilities, like the presenter mode that will allow us to add information into the board, but automatically, the attendees that are looking at the white board as well, will follow what I do. What I'm trying to say is that, let's say I'm going far right
00:18:53
to add some images, automatically their screen will follow my mouse on the far right.
00:19:01
Also I have the three little dots in which we find the keypad. So I think you know about the keypad and how to use it.
00:19:12
Then we have the "start recording" to record the meeting, the call. I can turn off incoming videos. I don't want to see people's houses or faces while we are in a meeting, I can just turn off the incoming video. Another possibility that we have, but I don't have it right here because I
00:19:33
don't use the webcam, is that I can blur the video feed from me. Let's say I'm at home, I'm doing a meeting with my colleagues, but I don't want them to see whatever is behind me: my house, my family etc. So I can blur the background. They will only see me
00:19:54
and the background will be blurred.
00:19:57
On the top right, I have the possibility to take notes.
00:20:04
Also to talk with a different participant in an instant messaging way,
00:20:10
to see the different attendees but also to invite people. And on the top right, I can change the audio devices, the speakers, the microphone and the camera.
00:20:24
So, now that you have seen this, one little thing that you will have on the top roght, just next to your picture. You will be able to change your tenants. You'll be able to use Teams on different tenants and so you will have
00:20:45
your tenants right here on the top, between "search for" or "type a command" and your picture, you have your tenants and just by clicking on it, you have a list of all of the tenants that you have access to. So you click on one of them and Teams will reload to show the teams of the new tenant
00:21:06
with other teams and other channels, etc. Now, let's go back to our PowerPoint.
00:21:16
Now that we've seen the things that are the same on Skype and Teams, let's talk about how to make the transition easier for users.
00:05:21
I can see that there are a lot of people that don't have any sound. If anyone has sound can you tell me in the chat box on the top of the screen or else we will continue the training session.
00:05:48
So I can see that a lot of people have sound, so just some people have problems, so we will go on and they will have the little recording of the streaming session. So it will be OK. So now we are going to compare Skype and Teams.
00:06:09
So the things that are already on Skype, we will see them directly on Teams. I'm going to put Teams on the screen.
00:06:23
So we are right here on Teams. I will go on the Teams tab on the left so we will begin freshly direction Teams.
00:06:33
Just the time for it to load and we will see it in a few seconds.
00:06:45
So we have the Teams tab. It is where the collaborative work is going to happen, but also the communication. We want to know here what are the differences on functionalities that are the same on Skype and Teams.
00:07:06
We are going to see it right now by clicking on the left on the chat tab. The chat tab is going to be for the instant messaging. So to begin with, as you can see on the top, we have two sorts of tabs. We have the recent tab with all recent the conversations.
00:07:47
and with the three little dots, I can add a contact to this group. So I can click on it, I choose someone which I have as a contact, like Amaury. I click on "add" and then, as you can see, Amaury is now in my web contacts. But also
00:08:08
some things that I can do: at the bottom, you can see "create a new contact group".
00:08:16
So I choose a name, let's say "webinar group".
00:08:22
I click on "create".
00:08:26
And now I have, as you can see on the left, right here, webinar group. Once again, I can click on "options", "add a contact to this group". I choose someone an I can add him directly into this group and, of course, like it's on Skype. I have my different groups, my different people. I can
00:08:47
talk to all of them, like you used to do on Skype. Let's go on, on the instant messaging. What can we do in here?
00:08:57
Let's go with Pierre. As you may know, I can send simple message. Once again, I'm going to say "hello" to Pierre.
00:09:08
But on the bottom I will have a few more possibilities than on Skype.
00:09:13
To begin with, I have the possibility to format my text. I can put it in bold, in italics, underline it. But a few more possibilities to highlight, change the font color, the font size, etc. Like a little text paragraph.
00:09:32
Of course I can attach different documents from my OneDrive or even uploaded from my computer like I used to do before. As you know, I have the little emojis that are available and the little GIF. The GIF, I can just click on it and different GIFs will appear.
00:09:53
I can choose one of them to send it directly.
00:09:58
I have the stickers, which are little images.
00:10:03
And lastly I have schedule a meeting. If I click on "schedule a meeting", as you can see, a new window will appear. We are going to talk about the this window a bit further into the training session, but at least you know it's here.
00:10:20
Then we have the three little dots, the messaging extension, and if I click on I can add different little applications directly to my conversation: news, places, stocks, weather, Wikipedia search and also YouTube.
00:10:38
And, I can create my messaging to be a little more structured than on Skype. It will not simply be different sentences. Now I can put it in bold, highlight, change font, etc. So I can really do a little text rather than
00:10:58
just sentences.
00:11:01
Still, on the instant messaging, I will find back in the tab on the top, as you can see, the Files tab.
00:11:10
I will find right here the different files that I have shared with Pierre. I can click on "share" from OneDrive or my computer and, right here, I will be able to share documents with Pierre and I will find them all here. On Skype, we did not have this
00:11:31
to find back the documents, while here we can. It will be a little files library with my colleagues and co-workers. Of course, with the little plus button at the top I can add a new tab from different applications: Excel, OneNote, PDF,
00:11:52
Power BI, etc. We will have the ability, into the conversation, to have those different applications directly in it. So no need to talk on Teams and then go online and on applications, then share documents. No, I can just go directly into the instant messaging on Teams and work from here.
00:12:12
I won't have to use 3, 4, 5 different applications to work with my colleagues. I can go on Teams to do all of this directly.
00:12:23
But also aside from the instant messaging, I will have the possibility on the top right, as you can see, to call my colleagues, my coworkers. So the audio call and so I can, as you may know, share my screen. If I call here, for example,
00:12:45
so I click on it and it takes a few seconds to load, as you can see on the bottom, I can use the little "share" button and they have the three little dots that we will see a bit later during the training session as well. Now let's go directly into the "meetings" tab
00:13:05
on the left.
00:13:08
So, in the "meetings" tab, first things first, we will find on the left all of the different meetings that I have scheduled. They are scheduled on Teams or even on Outlook. I will be able to find all of my Outlook meetings directly into Teams.
00:13:30
So it will be all on the left and if I click on it, I will find those meetings information, so the day, the hour etc. But I can find the different attendees and also the different information that I put in it, like maybe in which room is the meeting, etc.
00:13:52
I can change the views of my calendar. Right here, it's today. But if I click on the three little lines on the left for the agenda view,
00:14:02
as you can see we have for the whole month: today, tomorrow, Friday, etc.
00:14:10
Right here on the right, on the information pages, I will have the possibility to chat with the participants. So it will open a conversation, cancel the meeting if I'm the organizer. But if I'm not, if I'm an attendee, I will be able to accept it, put it on hold or even
00:14:31
say I won't be present.
00:14:33
We have the little links on the bottom. If I click on it, I will join these Teams meetings via Teams online. So it will be like you used to do on Skype when you sent links and you'll be able to click on them to access the meeting. On the top right, we have "Join".
00:14:54
I will be able with this button to join the meeting directly on Teams being the software or the application.
00:15:01
Now, I want to create, to schedule a new meeting. I will click on the bottom left,
00:15:11
"Schedule a meeting". First of all, the title. Let's say, customer meeting.
00:15:19
The location will be on Microsoft Teams meeting, so directly into Teams, or I can see it will be in room 1 or 4, for example.
00:15:31
When does it start and end? At which hour for the beginning and the end? I have the same scheduling assistant that I used to have on Outlook. So let's invite Amaury, Pierre and then I click on the scheduling assistant and I will find back the scheduling assistant
00:15:52
like in Outlook, but directly into Teams once again.
00:15:57
Then I can change the time zone, as you can see, but also, on the bottom, I can add details with the same formatting possible as we saw just before on the instant messaging.
00:16:13
On the right, we have "select the channel to meeting". So the channel, we have all of the different Teams channel right here. I can click, for example, on "call for tenders" and they have the general channel. I can select it and you'll understand just after why I did it.
00:16:34
And as you know, I can invite some people right here.
00:16:38
So let's just put it in a business team right here.Share once again and maybe Amaury, well Paul. Perfect. I have Paul and Pierre in my meeting in the business team general. Let's schedule this meeting.
00:17:00
It's now loading and automatically I'm back in the Teams tab, as you can see on the left, and on the top I have business team and the general channel. As you can see right here, my meeting that I've just created, the customer meeting is now directly integrated into this team.
00:17:21
So I can and everybody in this channel, this team will be able to do it as well, I can just click on it
00:17:32
and I will have "chat with the participants", but it will bring me back into the same channel as I was a few seconds ago, and I can click on "join". I click on "join".
00:17:43
I'm able to activate my video feed or audio feed and I can click on "Join Now".
00:17:53
I'm connecting to the meeting.
00:17:57
And on the bottom, once again audio, video call and I have the "share tray". In the share tray, I be able to share my screen, 1 or 2, but also my windows.
00:18:12
I can also share my PowerPoints, like I used to do on Skype, and on the right we have the White Board. The White Board, which is not directly from Skype but by 3N by envision, will be a white board quite similar to what we used to have on Skype but
00:18:33
with a few more possibilities, like the presenter mode that will allow us to add information into the board, but automatically, the attendees that are looking at the white board as well, will follow what I do. What I'm trying to say is that, let's say I'm going far right
00:18:53
to add some images, automatically their screen will follow my mouse on the far right.
00:19:01
Also I have the three little dots in which we find the keypad. So I think you know about the keypad and how to use it.
00:19:12
Then we have the "start recording" to record the meeting, the call. I can turn off incoming videos. I don't want to see people's houses or faces while we are in a meeting, I can just turn off the incoming video. Another possibility that we have, but I don't have it right here because I
00:19:33
don't use the webcam, is that I can blur the video feed from me. Let's say I'm at home, I'm doing a meeting with my colleagues, but I don't want them to see whatever is behind me: my house, my family etc. So I can blur the background. They will only see me
00:19:54
and the background will be blurred.
00:19:57
On the top right, I have the possibility to take notes.
00:20:04
Also to talk with a different participant in an instant messaging way,
00:20:10
to see the different attendees but also to invite people. And on the top right, I can change the audio devices, the speakers, the microphone and the camera.
00:20:24
So, now that you have seen this, one little thing that you will have on the top roght, just next to your picture. You will be able to change your tenants. You'll be able to use Teams on different tenants and so you will have
00:20:45
your tenants right here on the top, between "search for" or "type a command" and your picture, you have your tenants and just by clicking on it, you have a list of all of the tenants that you have access to. So you click on one of them and Teams will reload to show the teams of the new tenant
00:21:06
with other teams and other channels, etc. Now, let's go back to our PowerPoint.
00:21:16
Now that we've seen the things that are the same on Skype and Teams, let's talk about how to make the transition easier for users.
00:21:28
So, we have 3 steps: the communication, the cohabitation and decision making.
00:21:35
To begin with, the admin activates the invitation to use Teams, so that the different users will receive an invitation to start use Teams. Just after it, Teams is open to the users. Now, let's go to the cohabitation
00:21:54
In the middle of it, we will have the adoption. At any given moment, users will have or will want to adopt Teams and they will have the Teams training to know how to use it. Then, in the decision making we will have, of course, the decision period.
00:22:14
So the idea here is to let the users choose which tools they want to communicate, for what use, at any given moment. You don't want to start by saying: "You do not have Skype anymore, let's go to Teams". No. They need to have a transition period.
00:22:35
So if Teams is not yet deployed in your company, that can be a good start to use it as a collaborative tool. Give a period of some weeks or even months to your users to use Teams at the same time as Skype. Some users will prefer to use Teams and will influence others to use Teams.
00:22:56
Step by step, Teams will take the upper hand, even more if it's used as a collaborative tool. After this given time, you'll have to make a choice: let the 2 applications and give more time to the users if you think they need it; or take out Skype after you have warned the users about it and of course you can choose to
00:23:17
end Skype. So the cohabitation, the extension period or Skype Deactivations are the three steps and you'll have to communicate on it for the users to know what will happen to Skype, when they will start to use Teams, etc.
00:21:28

00:23:35
So, little conclusion now. First of all, you have time: Skype will not disappear today, you have time to make the transition between Skype and Teams.
00:23:50
Of course, don't rush your users or else they will not want to start using Teams if you rush them to it. Let them take time, too. Teams takes the purpose of the perfect collaborative tool: it's complete and intuitive. You also have
00:24:11
some Microsoft resources links that I will share with you directly in the chat. So to help with the transition, the Teams roadmap and the Q&A on Skype to Teams. I will send you those little links into the chat. The chat even the top of the screen, the second
00:24:31
bubble from the left.
00:24:33
So the first one, help with transition.
00:24:39
Then we have the second one, the Teams roadmap.
00:24:50
And lastly we have the Q&A on Skype to Teams.
00:24:59
So Q&A Skype/Teams.
00:25:03
And lastly, on the MOOC, you'll have courses about Teams and dedicated tutorials.
00:25:15
The different Skype and team tutorials, you have them on the screen right now: the different possibilities or to manage your availability and see your coworkers' status, create a contact group, meeting from Outlook, record a meeting, create a live event, invite external people to a meeting, share your screen during a meeting,
00:25:36
retrieve information from a meeting, instant messaging with a contact, add a contact to acontact group, and change your peripheral during a meeting. But we have one last thing: the modern workplace cloudworkshop. I'm going to put it right now on screen.
00:25:55
So just a few seconds for me to load it on the side and put it on screen just after.
00:26:14
So in March, and you'll se in on the screen in a few seconds, you'll have a workshop about, as you can see on the brief overview and who should attend. This workshop is aimed at organization, looking for efficient means
00:26:34
to generate adoption and stimulate greater use of Microsoft 365. When is it? On March, 7th 2019, in London, Westminster Meeting room, Microsoft, 2 Kingdom St. and is from 9:30 AM.
00:26:55
And the second part starts at 12 PM.
00:27:04
So I will send you this as a link because you can, if you want, register to it to participate. So I will send the link in the chat as well. And so I will call it UK workshop.
00:27:24
Right here, so by clicking on this link you can register to this workshop in London.
00:27:33
So now if you have any question about everything that we saw today, you can write it directly into the chat. We will take all of those questions, and then we will have in a while shortly a Q&A that will be available
00:27:53
for you with all of the questions that you've asked and so you'll be able to find back all of the answers to these questions directly in the Q&A.
00:28:07
So I will let you the time to write your different questions. Oonce again, you'll find the answers back in the Q&A. I thank you for being here today on this webinar. Make the best use of what you've learned.
00:28:28
Have a good day and I hope to see you on another training session.
00:28:34
I let you have time to write the different questions, and I will put back the links once again because some people did not find them back, so I will put the different links into the chat.
00:28:52
You should have different things. Once again, thank you for being here. I wish you a good day. You still have time to write different questions and I hope to see you on another training session.
