Exciting changes are afoot for tech enthusiasts and IT professionals! Late last year, the Office Mechanics show, popular for its in-depth videos on Microsoft Office tools, underwent an expansion and re-branding. The result? Microsoft Mechanics, a showcase of the latest news on Microsoft tech.
Rather than pulling away from the core focus of valuable Microsoft Office know-how, as some might have expected, the channel actually offers an increased number of videos on Microsoft Office products. Additionally, it aims to address broader tech know-how from the Azure, Windows and Surface teams.
Before you go scrambling for your calendar, know that Microsoft Mechanics original weekly schedule appears to have been revised, with multiple uploads happening each week. You can generally expect videos to be between 3 and 18 minutes, making them a speedy option for getting up to speed with the latest Microsoft tech. The videos immerse their viewers in a huge range of topics, with a heavy focus on product demos. The hosts are none other than Microsoft engineers themselves, how’s that for information from the source!
You can access the show through the Microsoft Mechanics YouTube channel. Just a heads up – since their launch they have already released over 50 new videos. This is in addition to the existing wealth of information from the former Office Mechanics team, so you have plenty to catch up on. Topics of recent videos cover tools such as Microsoft SharePoint, Skype, Microsoft Surface, OneDrive, TellMe, Outlook and PowerPoint.
Best of all, Microsoft puts you in control. If you find that the show is missing anything that you’d like explained, simply contact the Microsoft Mechanics team through the Office 365 Network Yammer group. Your explanation could well be the basis for the next video.
So, make sure to check out the Microsoft Mechanics channel if you’re using the Office 365 platform. It’s a truly valuable resource. Watch their introduction video below.
