How is access to our digital resources assigned and what determines who has access to what resources.
What determines when we receive the latest releases or updates for Teams?
First off, not all users in MPS will necessarily receive updates at the same time
- Teams desktop client updates are released every two weeks. This usually takes place on a Tuesday. If a critical update is required, Teams will bypass this schedule and release the update as soon as it’s available.
- The desktop client updates itself automatically. Teams checks for updates every few hours behind the scenes, downloads it, and then waits for the computer to be idle before silently installing the update.
- Users can manually download updates by clicking Check for updates on the Profile drop-down menu on the top right of the app. If an update is available, it will be downloaded and silently installed when the computer is idle.
- Important: Users need to be signed in for updates to be downloaded.
- Teams follows its own update process as outlined above, and not the update process for the other Offices apps, such as Word and Excel.
