Dharmesh is a seasoned technical project manager with over 15 years’ experience using and implementing Microsoft technologies. He has worked for various large multi-national organizations sectors, including finance e-commerce and technology, as well as continued engagement with Microsoft. So with that said, I’d like to welcome you Dharmesh. And at this time I’ll hand it over to you to get us started with today’s session.

Dharmesh Patel: Brilliant. Thank you very much Carl. Very much appreciated. Super. Let me start by sharing my screen. So firstly, thank you very much for everyone attending today. I’m very excited to be presenting for MPUG. What I wanted to do was present on the use of Microsoft Teams. And I guess, especially during the challenging times that we’ve been in at the moment with the pandemic and the rise of high Microsoft Teams has been used. And I just want you to share some of my experiences and how I’ve used it in the world of project management. And I thought I would share some of those tips and tricks with you. As Carl mentioned through the session, if you do have any questions, please do post them. And at the end of the session, we will go through those and answer as many as possible.

Dharmesh Patel: So, in today’s session what I wanted to cover was in four key areas. So project planning. So some of the options that are available and how you can use some of those tools within Microsoft Teams. Team communication, how do we as a team communicate virtually, some of the tools that are available once again, to assess that in I guess the digital or modern workplace that we’re working within. Risk and issue management. How do we do that? What are the options available to us? And then finally document management. What are the key methods that we can use within Microsoft Teams and I guess SharePoint to manage your documents. I’m going to provide quite a hands-on presentation. So I’ll use these slides as guides just to sort of go back to and reference what we’ve been looking at.

Dharmesh Patel: So, if we start with project planning a few of the areas that I just wanted to cover off, the use of Microsoft Planner and I guess the Kanban board capabilities. The project timeline, so getting a visual view of your project and I guess you get the project timeline within Microsoft project. And I guess I just wanted to sort of show you how you’d be able to utilize that within Microsoft Teams and SharePoint. And then finally SharePoint lists a way of you creating your custom actions lists which you would be able to use as part of your I guess actions or planning tools. So if I come out the presentation, I’m just going to share my screen, first of all. So I’ve logged into Office 365 and I’m going into Teams. For today’s presentation, I’ve set up a project Teams area for a marketing project and I will be using this for my demonstration today.

Dharmesh Patel: So, first of all, and I guess I just wanted to talk about some of the planning capabilities. What I’ve done in my project Teams that I’ve set up is I’ve set up various channels specifically for certain activities. And I’m going to skip first of all, straight to the planning one which I have set up and in here I’ve got various discussions I would have about the plan and what is currently happening in the project related relating to the plan. I’ve set up a specific planner for my marketing project that I’m working on and I’ve called this Mike Kanban board.

Dharmesh Patel: The way that I would be able to do that is you can see on the plus sign here when I click on the plus sign that there are various options that come up here. And from here, I will be able to select my planet and create my planet. When I select the option, and I won’t go through the full process but it will ask if I’ve got an existing plan I want to link to this Team or if I want to if I wanted to link an existing one or create a new one. What I have done is created a new one. And what I wanted to demonstrate here is I guess a virtual Kanban board where I’ve got a number of activities here. So for example, I’ve got my backlog of to do items and I can add to that to do items list very easily by clicking on the plus sign here.

Dharmesh Patel: So, if I had an option where I needed to say update the pitch deck and I will be able to do that and add it as a backlog item. And now I’ve got that in here. When I click on the item, I’m able to assign it to someone on my team put it into one of the buckets and I’ll come to that shortly as to where it belongs, give a status update in terms of the progress, give it a priority. And by populating these fields, these all help with the reporting that Microsoft Planner is able to assist with. Add some notes and if there were any items that I needed to track in terms of specific checklist items, I would be able to add multiple items here and again, add any attachments and commentary associated to this particular task.

Dharmesh Patel: Now, if I was running this on a virtual basis, I would be able to have this open on a shared basis with the team and use this to help drive my team meetings on a day-by-day basis. So if I had created my tasks here, once I’ve done that, I would then be able to say, “Okay, updating the pitch deck is part of the launch events stream.” So I would be able to put it in here. And then as I’m working with my team I’d be able to say, “How are we getting on with the press release?” And as I’m working on that my team members would tell me that it’s in progress so I would be able to select that, to give me a status for my particular task.

Dharmesh Patel: By doing this and you can see that we’re able to track items through all the way. So if for demonstration purposes, I will say actually we’ve completed this item you’ll see that it moves out of the launch events bucket and is moved down into the completed area. Now, by tracking all of this, I’ve got various charts that I’m able to utilize. So you can see here, I’ve got status is for all of my tasks. I’ve got buckets to say how many tasks I have in each of my different work streams or buckets and the priority of them. So if I was to say, I’ve got some key items that I do need to ensure are done for this phase of the project, then again that would help.

Dharmesh Patel: Again, if in the examples we’ve assigned it to individuals, I would be able to get a breakdown of who’s working on which items and understand if anyone is overloaded with activities. And again if it was assigned to schedule, you would get a visual view of when it’s listed in the calendar. Now this is one way of tracking I guess your tasks and the use case really for Microsoft Planner and the way I see it is for if you’ve got a short assignment or sprints of activity this is something that you’d be able to use to help with your planning.

Dharmesh Patel: The other option I wanted to show you, and again, what I’ve done is link this in with the SharePoint is utilizing the project timeline. Now this could be used for some form of milestone reporting and it’s very useful to get a visual view for your team and your key stakeholders of where you are in your project. And you can use this by adding new tasks and assigning it to the timeline. The one thing to know is I’m in my Microsoft Teams so this is my one stop location for all items relating to my project. The final section I mentioned was SharePoint Lists and a way of using Lists to manage activities. Now, what I have done for this example is created a customs task list, and you can see that I’ve created it with a title on it for somebody and a due date.

Dharmesh Patel: Now this was very simple for me to be able to do in terms of creating a List. And you can see I’ve got the capability of adding additional columns to this. So, if for example I’ve got my tasks here that I’m creating and it’s assigned to an owner. Actually I need to be able to filter this or categorize my tasks by function so I would be able to say, “Right, I want to identify additional column. And I want to make this a choice field,” very simply I can say function, and then I want to make it a choice field, and I would be able to say, and just for demonstration purposes to I’m going to put IT, marketing and people.

Dharmesh Patel: So, I hit save now when I edit my items, so I’m selecting the icon and I’m going to look at the properties for this. I’m able to assign these tasks that I’ve set up to a specific function. And it’s very simple for me to do. Now with the benefit of using a SharePoint List, it enables and provides me the ability to customize how I want to have tasks or to do Lists. And then we would be able to utilize other functionality like reminders and such within here,

Dharmesh Patel: If I go back to my presentation. So for planning options within MS Teams, there’s various but I just wanted to highlight the three key ones which I have been using with some of my clients. And also when deploying Microsoft Teams using the tools to help drive a project forwards and track the progress of it. Moving on to team communication and I guess with the majority of companies at the moment working from home or working I guess more in a virtual way, it’s really important that we have clear lines of communication and ways of sharing information, and some of the ways that I’ve been using Microsoft Teams is the persistent chat functionality, the Whiteboard and I just wanted to demonstrate actually as part of the Whiteboard there’s some preview features, which I wanted to show you.

Dharmesh Patel: And then one note as well in terms of how I categorize my notes using Microsoft Teams. So I’m going to go into my Team. Now for this, I’m going to go back to my generals channel here. And the first part I wanted to show you was about the chat functionality. And I’m sure we’re all aware of the chat functionality within Microsoft Teams and what Microsoft have done for this is that they’ve labeled this as persistent chat rather than instant messaging. So persistent chat is very much where all conversations are in one place. And as a team, I’m able to have a threaded conversation with my team. So me asking how the phase of the launch was going to a meeting. I would be able to do that within here.

Dharmesh Patel: Me sending a message and I’m able to do that by using the app sign within here to add team member and ask them for an update. I’m able to do this. The benefit of using the chat functionality within Microsoft Teams, and especially when we’ve got one set up for a specific purpose is it’s easy to go back and reference discussions that we’ve had but also as we have new team members joining, especially in projects, it’s very simple for someone to join a project, go back and look through some of the historical chat without the need to forward emails or forward methods of communication.

Dharmesh Patel: Next part I wanted to show was the Whiteboard functionality, and I’m actually going to open the app for this. And again, you can link a Whiteboard to your MS Teams here as well. Now, what I have used for Whiteboard and you can see this is actually me working on with some of my Teams at the moment. We use it for brainstorming, for planning backlog activities. What I’m going to do is just create in a new one that I’ve got here. And I’ve got basic functionality where I’m able to write on the screen, add texts, add notes as well. So if I needed a sticky note and I’d be using this in the same way that I would use I guess say a Whiteboard when you’re in a room. The added benefit of what Microsoft are bringing to Microsoft Whiteboard includes some of the template features.

Dharmesh Patel: And I just wanted to show you this just to give you a preview of what is some of the good functionality which we’re able to use as part of Microsoft Teams. And the link up to this is that you could be on a Microsoft Teams call where you’re able to spin up a Whiteboard and use this to collaborate with your team. So some of the templates are Microsoft have at the moment include Brainstorming, the Kanban’s, Retrospective meetings, SWOT analysis, Project Planning, et cetera. If I just bring up Brainstorming one, which is very useful, and I’m just going to zoom out a bit, apologies for that. You can see that the template has been set up where we could have an agenda follow-up idea, and then you can see that we’ve got a number of notes or sticky notes already added.

Dharmesh Patel: So, I would be able to be in here, I would be able to add my team members. So I click on the plus add their names and they would be able to contribute to this and we would be able to do this in real time together like being in a room together and I think it’s really powerful. And it really helps bringing the team together and working together and using the tools as part of Microsoft Teams to help drive your meetings forward.

Dharmesh Patel: And as part of the team communication, the final section I wanted to show was the meeting notes. Now, what I have done once again is I’ve set up a OneNote, which I have linked to my team here. And I’ve done that by once again in my team that I’m in, I may want to click on the plus and you can see I’ve got the OneNote option. And again, similar to when I was adding a Planner, either you would be able to do this via linking an existing planner or creating a new one. And what I’ve done here is I’ve set up my meeting notes, for example. So again I wouldn’t need to have this duplicated in emails. I’ll be able to have it in a central location where I can access it and my peers or team members are able to access those notes as well. So, you can see here, I’ve categorized mine by the team meetings and by the months similar with status meetings so I’m able to categorize it by state status meetings and my Stereo meeting notes as well in here for the team to review. Apologies.

Dharmesh Patel: So, you can see that I’m able to see my notes here. Again I’ve linked this up to my Microsoft Teams where I’m able to utilize the functionality of it all being in one location. If I just go back to my presentation, apologies, I’m just going to put my Teams on do not disturb actually. Okay. If I just go back to my presentation, as part of team communication for using Microsoft Teams we had a brief look at the persistent chat and as I mentioned, it’s about having the conversations in a single location where we’re able to point new team members to information as well without the need to having to forward on multiple emails.

Dharmesh Patel: And I think the functionality that works very well, we had a brief look at Whiteboards where we’re able to use in meetings as virtual Whiteboards and users brainstorming locations. And I think especially moving forward, this is going to be we do on a regular basis. And then integration of OneNote as well, where we’re able to host meeting minutes, team meeting notes status meeting notes, again its central location. And the benefit of it all being in one location is searching capability as well. We’re able to search our content and information to surface it appropriately as well.

Dharmesh Patel: So, as we move on, I wanted to look at the risk and issue management capabilities within I guess, Teams or SharePoint. So if I just come out of here for one moment and I go back into my project Team that I have set up and I’ve got my issue tracker here. Now you can see, I have an issue register here where I’ve just put some simple examples. But if we go through the process of creating a new one and we can look at some of the functionality that you’re able to have. So I’m able to give my issue a title, I’m able to assign this to somebody. I’m able to keep this issue a status. So is it active? Is it resolved or is it closed? A priority? A description? The category of issue that it’s relating to, and again, you can customize these values as well. But this is what you’re able to do out of the box. The values within here, you’re able to change and also add any additional fields to your issue register which you see fit as well.

Dharmesh Patel: What I’m also able to do here is link it to any other issues which are in my register and have a relationship with it. I’m able to then use some of the functionality of being able to set a due date and help with reminders. So if this is an issue and there is certain actions that need to be completed for this, then you would be able to set an appropriate date and an appropriate time to say that this is when it needs to be completed by, and based on that, that would send an email reminder to the individual who’s assigned this particular item. The benefit of it being in a central register is I’m able to do clever things For example, I just want to be able to group mine by priority.

Dharmesh Patel: So, I just want to look at all of my high priority ones and I’m able to group it using the out of the box features. And also if there’s a status I’m able to do that as well. And it’s given me greater capability of managing my issues and risk items in a central location. And you’ll note that it’s all part of the single team that I’m in. One part I just wanted to talk about is what you can see here is that actually, this is all part of in a SharePoint site. And that will probably lead me in quite nicely to the next section, which I was going to be discussing.

Dharmesh Patel: So, the relationship between Microsoft Teams and SharePoint is the underlying location for where your information is held within a Microsoft Team is within SharePoint. Now, when I’m in my Team here that I’ve got set up for the project what I’m able to do is I’ve clicked on the ellipsis here and I’m able to say, “I want to open my Team in SharePoint.” I’m just going to go to the homepage for my Team, which is being set up. Okay. I’m now in SharePoint on the home page of my project team, which I’ve set up and you’ll see that some of the items so I just go to the site content for the site. You’ll see that the issue tracker that I had is hosted within here, the project tasks that I briefly demonstrated is also here.

Dharmesh Patel: And the last section, which we’re going to look at in terms of project documentation and I’ll come to that shortly is also here. So everything that was in my Microsoft Teams is actually hosted within SharePoint and SharePoint hosts a lot of that information. And I guess that it also includes the OneNote. So if I’m in here, actually we’ll see that my OneNote file is also within this site. So it’s got very close ties to SharePoint.

Dharmesh Patel: This site and the use case of using this potentially would be for team members who are not or colleagues who are not part of your call everyday working team, who just want to get an update on what you’re working on, what you’re doing and potentially accessing some information and you’re able to use the SharePoint front page as an entry point for those users. Here, I’m able to add news items for them, potentially some quick links access to some key documents and also see some of the key activities which are happening as part of the project. I’m just going to go back to my slides.

Dharmesh Patel: The last section that I wanted to talk to today is around document management and Microsoft Teams. What’s the difference between MS Teams and SharePoint, sharing the files, co-authoring and then the document libraries, the benefits of having all your information there and how would be able to create views. Now first of all what I was just talking to was really the first point around your information, which is held within SharePoint. The information that is held in Teams is actually all held within a SharePoint site. So every time you add a file here actually it’s getting shared within SharePoint and it’s got some real, real benefits of all the functionality that you get from SharePoint but giving you the capability of having everything in a single location.

Dharmesh Patel: For this demonstration, I’ve set up a separate document library called project documents to help demonstrate some of the functionality. So you can see I’ve got a number of documents, which have been uploaded in here and I’ve added some additional tags or metadata for my files. But before we look at that, I just want you to go through I guess, some of the core functionality, which you get as part of having your information within SharePoint. And I guess this would include when I click on the ellipsis next to a particular document I’m able to share this very easily with colleagues. So rather than attaching a file and having version one, and then version 1.1, version 1.1-dp edit I’m able to have this in a central location and share this out to different team members to collaborate on.

Dharmesh Patel: And when I open this, I have the option, so I’m just going to open this in my browser at the moment. I’ve got a particular worksheet that I’m working on and I’m able to put information within here and it could be that I’ve been asked to update my information in here. So it’s been shared with me and I’ve made my updates and you can see that it’s saving actively as I’m working on that. When I go back to my site here, I guess first of all, what I might actually do is just… I’m just going to go into the web version where I’ll be able to show you. First of all, you can see that the document that I’ve edited it tells me when it was last updated. And then when I click on here and I get the same options within here, which I got within Teams, I’m able to see some of the benefits, for example, version history, where I’m able to track and see all of the updates that have been made. And I’m able to roll back to a particular version of a document as part of the work that I’m doing.

Dharmesh Patel: So, this could be some sort of budgeting spreadsheet, or it could be your project initiation document or some sort of requirements document, which you’re asking multiple users to feed into or you’re working on with your business analyst. What you’re able to do is go back and have a look at different versions. And [inaudible 00:35:05] I kind of view and say restore. So if there was some certain changes, which I wasn’t too keen on we’re able to go back and go and have a look at some of those previous changes that have been done.

Dharmesh Patel: The benefit of having your content and documentation for your project or for your work stream of activity that you’re working on in here is the benefit of having additional tags to your documents. So rather than having a traditional folder structure where you would have different files being able to utilize and leverage the functionality as part of a SharePoint document library enables you to tag your documents. Now I’ve got various ways that I’m able to find it, I’m able to use the search. I’m able to filter what I am looking for. So I can say, I want to do a group or there’s a particular filter I wanted or similar to, I guess websites that you go to you can see this filter pane here. I’m able to go in and say, well, I’m looking for a requirements document, and it’s part of the execution phase. And what that will do is help filter down a particular document that I’m looking for and help create my own, I guess, personal viewer search to be able to filter my documents.

Dharmesh Patel: Now, if that was a common view that I’m using on a regular basis I’m able to create those views. So if we go back and say it was a requirements document and it’s part of the execution, and this is a regular view that I have, what I am able to do is save that as a view and we can call this the requirements view. And I can either make it a view just for myself or as a public view for this utilize. Now, rather than applying those filters every time I come into here, what I am able to do is go in and say. I just want to see the requirements view. What this also does is that it gives you a custom URL for it as well. So if I wanted to share this with my team or have this as a view within SharePoint or my MS Teams I would able to use this URL or this particular view name to surface the particular view that I wanted.

Dharmesh Patel: So in terms of document management I thought it was useful to show you how you would be able to use Microsoft Teams or I guess, SharePoint to store your documentation and how you are able to utilize the benefits of document libraries and how you are able to create and save views which I use on a common basis. So in terms of a recap of today’s session I thought it was useful for me to share some of my learnings and what I’ve done with some of my clients and what we’re using Microsoft Teams for when managing a project. So we looked at some of the project planning approaches. We looked at team communication and collaboration, especially in I guess the digital workplace that we’re currently working within. We looked at the way that you could potentially use this for risk and issue management. And then finally and I guess one of the most important parts of what we do is document management and how we’re able to use a central location to store all our documents.

Dharmesh Patel: The benefit of Microsoft Teams is that it brings all of the components together in a single location where you are able to share this with peers or team members where they can get an overview on your project. And I thought it’d be useful to share some of those I guess, tips and tricks on using Microsoft Teams for project management. I think we’ve got five minutes left and I thought it’d be useful to if there were any questions I’m more than happy to take those. Otherwise I’d say thank you very much for joining the session today. It was a pleasure presenting to you and thank you for the opportunity.

Kyle: Thank Dharmesh. That was great. We really appreciate your time and sharing the information with the MPUG community. We did actually have a lot of questions come in. I chatted some of those over to you. They might be numbered in the chat box there, otherwise I can read them aloud.

Dharmesh Patel: Okay. Super. Let me just open those out and I’m more than happy to try and answer some of those.

Kyle: Okay, great. I’m sure we won’t have time for many of these but we could also take the questions offline and we’ll be posting a webinar recording.

Dharmesh Patel: Yeah. I’m more than happy to. I’ll try and reel off as many as I can. And then actually, some of the questions that have been asked, I think may work quite well for some of the next sessions. So from David, my team is attempting to use Teams as a portfolio management tool. How bad of an idea is this, I guess full communication I think Microsoft Teams is a very good tool. And especially with the capabilities of what SharePoint has to offer. For planning I guess what you would be able to do is use your other tools that you may have in terms of Microsoft project and leveraging the ability to view your plans within Microsoft Teams and I guess that’s probably the approach I would take around that.

Dharmesh Patel: But I think that’s a good question and potentially something we can cover off in another session. So from Roy, we can connect it with project online? You can connect it with project online and I guess there’s various ways that you would be able to do it is link it via your… So if you set up a team and then link the certain elements that you wanted to as a view within your Microsoft Team I think that’s possible to do. What type of files can be imported to the planning function? I guess really you’re setting up a Kanban Board. You wouldn’t really be able to import in a file. What you can do is link files to individual tasks. So that is something that is possible to do.

Dharmesh Patel: How do you leverage MS Planner for external reporting? Good question. Microsoft are in the process of releasing some of the graph APIs, which you would be able to link into. And I know that those are currently in the process of being further developed. So you would potentially be able to use some of the API calls into Microsoft Planning to pull out reporting. We’ve got a question from Joanne. Does the timeline link to project web access projects for timelines tasks? So the timeline that I demonstrated was very much SharePoint timeline. It’s not the project, we have access timeline, however, you would be able to potentially show your project web access project timeline in Teams if that’s what you were trying to do. And have we got enough time? I’m more than happy just to sort of try and real [inaudible 00:44:22]

Kyle: Yeah, I think that would be fine. I’ll go ahead and chat to everyone the PDU code once again and we’ll just carry on if you need to drop off the recording will be available where you can pick back up and listen to the questions but yeah Dharmesh I think we can go ahead and take care of the rest.

Dharmesh Patel: Yeah. Okay. Super. Okay. So there was a question from Don so this was about used multiple task tracker options simultaneously, or usually one or the other based on the project needs. I think it is based on the project needs, and it could be that for a particular sprint of activity that you may have, so it could be a particular launch activity. I see Planner being able to really help with that, but then it could be that where you’re looking to present out, the timeline is a very good way of doing it, where you’re providing an overview of the project. And I guess it really depends on the audience. Your more traditional tools of course, are able to assimilate this. I guess what I’m trying to show is that we’ve got a user base which is comfortable in using Microsoft Teams so actually it really helps to surface the information there as well and giving them familiar reality to some of those help.

Dharmesh Patel: From Joanne, can you access the SharePoint list outside of Teams if it’s created in teams? You can, yes, because the information would be held within SharePoint. So yeah, that’s possible. From Vicky where can we find the Whiteboard features please? So I guess, first of all, you are able to download Microsoft Whiteboard from the Windows Store and sign in using your Microsoft 365 or Office 365 log in to download Whiteboard. And the preview features, which I showed are available in those. If you’re using the one which comes as part of Microsoft Teams, you do get the post-it notes feature, but some of the other functionality around templates are not currently in that version and it’s just a preview.

Dharmesh Patel: From Troy was the issue tracker created from a SharePoint list? I miss where that came from. The issue tracker was created from a SharePoint list and there’s a specific app for that. What I’ll do actually for some of these questions, I’m more than happy to put a bit of context behind these to provide some further insight into that. I’ve got a message from Amy. Is there a sandbox to test out MS Teams to decide whether you want to purchase it or not? So I guess you can get a trial version of a Microsoft 365 tenant and trial that. But if for your organization, they have Microsoft Office 365 subscription, you could ask them to set you up a Team and I guess it would be possible for you to do that.

Dharmesh Patel: And then final question I’ve got is from Keith. Which Kanban Board or app are you using? I use several Kanban and or agile board apps when I perform a search. So I was using what is available as part of Microsoft 365, which is the MS Planner app. And again I think if you’re using that, I think it’s very useful for small pieces of development work and I think it’s really beneficial there if you’re using it for sort of a fully blown project, I think just be careful on what the use case is because it’s Microsoft Planner isn’t designed for that it’s more for short bursts of work and I think based on what the use case is pick the right tool that you use. And I think those were all the questions.

Kyle: Thanks, Dharmesh. Yeah, we did have quite a few more I’ll connect with you after the session. Maybe we can come up with a plan for those ones as well but-

Dharmesh Patel: Yeah. Sure, definitely. No problem at all.

Kyle: Great. Anything else before we close out today, if you’d like to share your contact info or anything for the audience?

Dharmesh Patel: Yeah. Sure. I guess once again, thank you very much for attending the session today. I am on the MPUG website and I guess you can link up with me on LinkedIn. My name is Dharmesh Patel and my email address is info@dharmeshpatel.co.uk. Thank you very much for the opportunity.

Kyle: Thanks, Dharmesh. We really appreciate it and for taking all the questions that was great. Everyone claiming the PDU credit for today we’ll see that info on the screen. Activity ID is MPUG 111820, and it was eligible for three quarters of a technical PDU in the technical category. If you miss any of the session or would like to go back and review, the recording will be posted at mpug.com a bit later today, and you’ll receive an email just a couple of hours with a link to that. Our MPUG members have access to our full PDU eligible library of on-demand webinar recordings on mpug.com. We also have some great sessions on the calendar. We’ll be back in two weeks for a highly requested session from Iran Brown, working with MS Project master schedules and sub projects.

Kyle: And then on the 16th of December [Bill Dower 00:51:06] will return for a session on the project recovery process and do you know how to recover a project? So both of those will be great sessions and you can register for those now on mpug.com and that does it for today. So once again, thank you so much Dharmesh for your time today. Thank you to everyone that joined us live, or submitted a question and thank you to anyone watching this on demand. We hope you have a great rest of your day, and we’ll see you back soon for our next session.
