Reminder: Quarterly Microsoft Teams User’s Group

A reminder for those of you in the Chicago area, Monday, February 10th is our quarterly Microsoft Teams user group, this one is during lunch and I’m catering Mediterranean!

These are always fun and valuable, and a great place to network with your peers and make those relationships.  Vendors and local experts attend regularly as well so it’s a place to get those questions answered too!

This time around there are two sessions, the first I’ll be presenting on Private Channels, then we’ll talk about all that’s new in Microsoft Teams. I can’t wait!

To register or to find other local groups visit

Please note this meeting will be held at the Downtown Microsoft Office in the Aon Building (200 E. Randolph, Suite 200).

UPDATE: 911 Teams Mobile Calls No Longer Use Cell Network

I’m going to start this post off by thanking a friend of mine who works for CDW, Matt Edlhuber for pointing this out. If you’ve read my previous article below or tested yourself in the past, the 911 calling behavior from the Teams mobile client used to force the call through the cell carrier.


With the new Dynamic Emergency Calling configuration, we have additional location controls and can often send more accurate info. Calls from the Teams mobile clients now use the licensed calling plans or direct routing configuration.

No better time than now than to ensure your location settings are up to date!
