00:13:35 Rob Danser: I think it'd be interesting to discuss how different MSPs handle internal communications at their companies to keep all the employees and departments on the same page about what's happening at clients. With so many tools out there and each employee or role is working with different systems, it can be hard to pull all the disparate pieces of information together to see the whole picture. Also, often the information is too granular and myopic to see the big picture stuff anyway, it's tactical rather than strategic info. I'd be curious to hear how others capture, share, and sort information to keep communications active and relevant to their roles. Example tools: PSA (Connectwise, Autotask) Project management MyITprocess IT Glue OneNote Chat programs (Slack, Teams) Email Task management apps
00:16:01 Craig Anderson, PCM: We have a weekly "Super Power L10" with VCIO/TAM but I'm not convinced we get the kind of communication out of this we need in terms of whats going on at the clients
00:18:17 Craig Anderson, PCM: oh, that being said, I almost forot, I scheduled weekly meeting starting next week where the agenda is to review the outcomes from any SBRs that happened in the past week and sync up on plans for the next SBR

00:42:51 Andrew Millington: I thought the official MS term was "Pinged"

00:49:15 Craig Anderson, PCM: LyncSkypeTeams
00:50:43 Craig Anderson, PCM: I've used aton of trello over the years, and have not yet used planner much but i'm optimistoic because of its integration to To Do and Teams and so on
00:51:21 Jorge Viveros: Our Project Manager uses Planner for each project, which populates a Projects channel in Teams
00:52:54 JD Arthur: The Teams and Planner integration is why I prefer Planner
00:52:59 Dan Seafoot: Thanks for the Trello config - we could use Planner that way too
