Microsoft Community Calls for Teams, SharePoint, Graph are being replaced: here’s the new schedule
Microsoft is shaking up the current schedule of Community Calls with a new combined Microsoft 365 Platform Community Call that will cover Microsoft Teams, SharePoint and Microsoft Graph in one call.
Right now, all Community Calls are on a “summer break” during July and August but will restart August 31st and will be on Tuesdays at 8am Pacific, 4pm London. Calls will be recorded and posted to the Community YouTube channel.
This means you will need to cancel any existing meeting appointments you have for these Community Calls and download the new combined Microsoft 365 Platform Community Call invite.
This change just affects the Microsoft Teams, SharePoint and Microsoft Graph Community Calls, other Community Calls remain unaffected, and remain operational over the summer months:
- Adaptive Cards – 2nd Thursday each month at 9 AM PT – no summer break
- Microsoft Identity Platform – 3rd Thursday every month at 9 AM PT – no summer break
- Office add-ins – Second Wednesday every month 8 AM PT – no summer break
- Power Apps – Third Wednesday every month 8 AM PT – no summer break
- SharePoint Framework – bi-weekly call on Thursday at 7 AM PT – no summer break
When it starts in August, the new combined Microsoft 365 Platform Community Call will feature news and demos and well as an opportunity to ask questions in the chat. It will take place weekly (rather than monthly as previously) which should provide more opportunities than before for interaction with Microsoft. You can see from this image that Microsoft Teams, SharePoint and Graph calls were already on Tuesdays, this change adds another appointment at the end of the month, as well as providing more flexibility around what gets discussed on each call:
