King County is moving to Teams – Learn to make a call 

By now, many employees have been notified that Skype is retiring and King County is moving to Teams. Most employees will move by the end of the year, and KCIT will let each person know multiple times by email when that happens for them. 

For those employees wondering how Teams will work for their phone calls, the process is super easy.  

Below is a sneak peek at the new Teams screen showing how to make a call. KCIT will let each employee know when Teams phone calls are turned on. 

Moving to Microsoft Teams is a big change, and KCIT is here to make it easy for each employee. There is a robust plan to support employees through this change:  

  • KCIT Training Hub – Employees are encouraged to learn more about Calling in Teams, or explore other Teams features on the KCIT Training Hub Teams page. 
  • Teams Live Labs – Before employees make the move to Teams for calls, meetings and chats, they will have the chance to attend an online, live lab for an overview of Teams and a chance to get questions answered. KCIT will share an invitation for these labs when the time comes.  

For questions or more information, visit the Skype-to-Teams FAQs or contact the Helpdesk to get connected to a KCIT Trainer.
