Microsoft’s new Office 365 feature will nudge you to put good meeting habits into practice

Along with launch of free version of Microsoft Teams, Microsoft today a couple of new features that will help organizations build more efficient, creative, and engaged teams.

Workplace Analytics solutions:

Workplace Analytics solutions will allow you to turn organization-wide insights into action plans for individuals and teams. Workplace Analytics solution for teamwork will help teams build better meeting habits and improve their time management by guiding organizations through a series of steps. You can access the new Workplace Analytics solution for teamwork via the Solutions tab if you are using both Workplace Analytics and MyAnalytics.

MyAnalytics nudges:

MyAnalytics nudges are nothing but data-driven collaboration tips that will be displayed as you work in Office 365. In the beginning, Microsoft will offer the following four types of nudges:

  • Get more focus time—As your calendar fills up with meetings, MyAnalytics will remind you to set aside time for focused work before accepting new invites. You can see available times and block them off without leaving your inbox. MyAnalytics will also notify you when a meeting invite conflicts with a block of focus time that you’ve already scheduled.
  • Run more effective meetings—As you create and receive meeting invites, MyAnalytics will nudge you to put good meeting habits into practice and save precious hours. For example, MyAnalytics will nudge you to delegate coworkers to cover a meeting for you if your schedule is already busy.
  • Reduce your after-hours impact on coworkers—MyAnalytics will actively nudge you to avoid sending after-hours emails as you draft them to coworkers that you’ve recently impacted outside of regular working hours.
  • Stay on top of to-do’s and unread emailMyAnalytics already uses AI to remind you of tasks you promised over email to complete for coworkers (and tasks they asked you to get done). Now, MyAnalytics surfaces these reminders as you read emails from coworkers, so you can close out important tasks before taking on new ones. MyAnalytics will also remind you of unread email for your important contacts.

MyAnalytics users will see these new nudges on the Outlook on the web. Learn more about these new features from the link below.
