MS-700: Managing Microsoft Teams – Completed 💪🏽

By 13th July 2020No Comments

I really enjoyed studying for this exam, I’ve been working with Microsoft Teams a lot recently, and working through this exam opened my eyes to some of the advanced configuration options available inside Microsoft Teams meeting/messaging policies.

Exam Experience

Early this year I passed the AZ-900: Microsoft Azure Fundamentals and documented my experience going to the test centre here. My experience wasn’t the best and with all the test centres closed due to the current COVID situation, I tried the online experience.

The requirements for the online exam are available here, and let’s just say it was a great opportunity to declutter my office space 😉

Something that caught me out was, I ran the basic system check that checks webcam, internet speed and sound and everything came back fine.

I didn’t run the full system check via Pearson until just before the exam and my company use a remote management software called Screenconnect that we use to connect to client servers, and as a result, this was flagged as an issue and wouldn’t let me start a test exam, because of this I then had to rush around to try and get this uninstalled/disabled before the exam, not what you need just before an exam… lesson learned 🙂,

Quizlet is one of my favourite tools when revising, as it helps with grasping certain concepts or remembering a certain process, for instance how to disabled video for a certain subset of users.
