In this episode, Chris and Mark talk with Sam Crewdson (senior program manager, Microsoft) about his role managing Microsoft Web (MSW) on SharePoint. MSW is Microsoft's internal company portal, built for its 163,000 full-time employees. We discuss MSW over time - from on-premises to the cloud, from classic to modern, establishing it as a home site, and now its role within Microsoft Viva Connections inside of Microsoft Teams. Lots of learning and insight from over the years across UX, innovation and consistent user feedback.
