Simplifying my work at UZH with Microsoft 365

Targeted use of the potential of Microsoft 365

In the summer of 2021, a survey on digital skills was conducted among employees in collaboration with the V-ATP board. It showed that there is a great need among ATP staff to learn more about the functions related to the newly introduced Microsoft 365. We are pleased to offer you the following interesting program as a suggestion for your individual further training.

The Microsoft 365 collaboration platform simplifies working with colleagues in teams and across organizational units. Documents are shared via cloud and you are connected with others via chat, phone calls and meetings. Collaboration in familiar Office programs is easy in real-time.

In this lunch event series, you will learn how Microsoft 365 programs can help you simplify your everyday work at UZH. Gain more time to focus on your most important tasks by automating recurring tasks and effectively using Microsoft productivity solutions.

Target Audience:

The events are aimed in particular at employees of the administrative and technical staff of the University of Zurich. The events are open to all members of UZH.

MS Outlook can do more than send e-mail

Microsoft Outlook can do much more than just send emails. With the integrated calendar you'll have your appointments in view and coordinate them with your contacts. With the task management you prioritize your tasks and easily manage your workday.  

By connecting with other programs like OneDrive, OneNote and Teams, you can expand the functionalities of Outlook and make your collaboration easy.

Organizing projects and tasks in a team with Microsoft Tasks in Planner and To Do.

With the Tasks in Planner and To Do applications, you can keep track of all tasks from Outlook and Teams in one place.

With Planner you create Kanban boards with detailed task cards, which you can complete with files, checklists and labels. Track status with visual charts. Tasks from Outlook are integrated with To Do and you can also view your tasks in Outlook the other way around.
