Managing Emergencies. MS App for Crisis Communication
How can you overcome the Corona crisis in organizational terms at the company level? A Microsoft Special Task Force has been grappling with this question in the last days. The result is an app for communicating professionally and smoothly with your employees during a crisis. We have been using it ourselves for a week now, and we love it! Thank you, Microsoft!
In times when people are increasingly working from home, collaboration tools like Microsoft Teams are playing a significant role. But the Corona crisis demands even more, namely the kind of tools that enable information to reach employees quickly from various sources of information.
The principle explained chronologically:
You can use the app to quickly send your team internal company messages, answer FAQ’s, and offer employees access to important information like links and emergency contacts.
The most important functions at a glance:
Practical: The dashboard template–which can obviously be adapted to the company’s specifics–not only shows a column with the action plan and individual tasks, but steps to take towards crisis management. There are two more columns next to this one for measures that should both show and diminish the effects on the business, as well as specific steps for risk analysis.
How do you use the MS App for crisis communication?
You need a license for Microsoft Power Apps and for Microsoft SharePoint. Using Microsoft Teams is free of charge. To use the Power Apps Push messaging function during the Corona crisis, no premium license is needed. This way you can send information to the team members connected.
