Microsoft 365 & Teams FAQs (Updated 26/07/21)

  • Can I keep my Year 10 from this year and have a new Year 10 class next Year also? Yes, last years SIMS created Groups and Teams will be archived and marked as 'Expired' these will be 'read only' and will have a prefix of Exp0721. Groups and Teams you create yourself are unaffected. This will be implemented at the end of July.
  • If a Team is archived, how to I then access its content or how do the pupils access the resources from this year’s TEAMs area? Search for the Team with a prefix of Exp0721 These are read only, but can be reactivated by the class teacher
  • Are TEAMs automatically created?  Is this from SIMS?  Do teachers have to create any TEAMS themselves? As last year, Groups and Teams will be created from SIMS for classes, forms and houses. These will have a prefix of 2021. However, this cannot be done until SIMS has moved to the new academic year.
  • What date do the new TEAMs get created – is it 1st September or first day of school?  And what does this mean for teachers who choose to work on this over the summer – should they keep all this work on One drive of a staff only SharePoint ready  to move to the TEAMS once set up? Yes, Teams can only be created once all the relevant data is in SIMS and the new academic year has been activated. This may take a couple of days to implement.
  • Do I need to do anything or does it all happen behind the scenes?  SIMS created groups and Teams membership will be updated by the system each day between 1am and 2am. You can create your own groups and Teams, but you will have to manage them yourself.
