Thank you, MBA Tech Team
Executives/Scholars having Wifi issues?
Executives (with older model Dells) can’t connect to the wifi?
In most cases, when an executive is unable to connect to the wifi, it is due to the executive accidentally switching the wifi toggle to the off position, which then puts the device into airplane mode.
In order to turn airplane mode off, the user must flip the wifi toggle to the on position.
The wifi toggle can be found on the right hand side of the older model Dell Latitude laptops.

*At times the user may be required to click the “wifi button” in order to fully turn wifi back on.
STEP 1: Click the Internet access button
STEP 2: If the Wifi button is grayed out, click it, and The available networks should appear.
Try these trouble shooting steps and if unsuccessful please contact us.

Below is a quick preview of the latest updates in Smart Learning Suite.
Presenter View in Teams Presentation Sharing
Once the presenter selects a PowerPoint file from the Teams Share Tray, Presenter View is opened automatically. The presenter can see the current slide, the slide notes, and a thumbnail strip of all the slides in the deck for easy ad-hoc slide navigation.
This view is private to the presenter in control. If another presenter clicks “Take Control”, presenter view will be opened for the second presenter, while the previous presenter will be switched to the audience view without any access to the slide notes and the thumbnail strip.
Updates to meeting chat membership
A participants access to meeting chat will be dependent on how they were invited to the meeting:
- Who can see the chat for a single meeting?
- People who are invited to the meeting or forwarded the meeting invitation after it is scheduled have access to the chat before, during, and after the meeting (up to the 1000-person limit).
- People who are added to a meeting after it starts using the Invite someone field on the Participants pane (or are provided the meeting join coordinates in another way) will have access to the chat from the time they join to the time the meeting ends. They will not be able to see chat that takes place after the meeting ends.
- Who can see the meeting chat for a recurring meeting series?
- People who are invited to the full series have access to the chat before, during, and after the meeting (up to the 1000-person limit).
- People who are forwarded the invite of a single occurrence of the series or added to a meeting after it starts using the Invite someone field on the Participants pane (or are provided the meeting coordinates in another way) have access to the chat from the time they join to the time that meeting instance ends. They will not be able to see chat that takes place after the meeting ends.
Note: These changes do not impact channel meetings.
New file sharing experience in Microsoft Teams (Mid-March through Mid-April)
With this update, when users share a file from within Teams (desktop/web), they will have the option to create sharing links that provide access to:
- people with existing access
- people within your organization
- specific people, including those in a 1:1 chat, group chat, or channels.
Before users share a file in a chat and channels, they will be notified if recipients don't have permission to view the file. The user can change permissions before they share the file (if they have permission to do so).
Microsoft Teams Revised In-meeting Share Experience
In Microsoft Teams desktop client on Windows and Mac, users will see a new design when sharing their screen, window, Whiteboard, or PowerPoint during meetings, as shown below.
