MS-700: Managing Microsoft Teams Study Guide

One thing many IT pros have been asking for since the release of Microsoft Teams was a certification to go along with it. There are some great resources from Edx out there that can help you gain more knowledge around all things Microsoft Teams (specifically “Enabling Teamwork with Microsoft Teams” and “Microsoft Services Adoption Specialist”) along with the newer Learning Paths that Microsoft provides for IT pro training. However, there was no official exam nor certification strictly dedicated to Teams to go along with it….until now! During Ignite, Microsoft released a plethora of new features and functionality for Teams which included a new exam path for Microsoft Teams administrators! The new certification is called “Microsoft 365 Certified: Teams Administrator Associate“, not to be confused with the similarly named certification “Microsoft 365 Certified: Teamwork Administrator Associate“. Although the Teamwork Administrator Associate certification does have some Teams pieces (and you should definitely consider taking this exam as well so you can see the “big picture” around Teams) it didn’t specifically target the deeper aspects of Teams for those administrators that will only be handling this service. For those of that that fall under this umbrella, you’re in luck because today we’ll be breaking down what you’ll need to know to pass the MS-700: Managing Microsoft Teams exam and earn that shiny new certification! With that being said, let’s put that brain to work to ace the MS-700!
