Constant communication is key for those who work continuously to keep Ohio State facilities safe and fully operational. Microsoft Teams, one of Ohio State’s newest Office 365 tools, takes digital communication among faculty, staff and students beyond the basic chatroom. Teams integrates with other Office 365 programs, creating an all-in-one digital workspace catered to seamless collaboration. Teams works around the clock to support university communication anytime, anywhere.
Beginning on October 13, everyone who uses eTimesheet to record time, including student employees, should record start time and end time, as well as time-out to lunch and time back in, if a lunch break is taken.
