An easier way to push out Office templates and Teams custom backgrounds to all Windows 10 clients

Forget about multiple different designs, outdated templates, and non-branded content – we have developed new functionality to our Best Place to Work solution, and simply call it IronSync. 

 

In this blog, we will take you through the function of IronSync and the experience of pushing out templates to Word, PowerPoint, and Teams to the whole organization by using the feature.

 

Currently, there is no built-in solution for this functionality in O365 or Intune. Alternatives are expensive and subjectively not as cool as our custom integrated, cloud-only solution. The IronSync function on top of our client management solutions, Best Place to Work, provides an easy way to push out Office templates and Teams backgrounds to all Windows 10 clients. The solution is 100% cloud-based by utilizing the combined power of Azure, Intune, and PowerShell.

 

Story – from Marketing to End-user

We have now started to utilize our designed solution for syncing Office templates to everyone in our organization. The solution started as a simple feature for one of our customers about a year ago, and since then, it has been continuously improved and now also includes custom Teams backgrounds.

"I have just updated our branded templates for the organization and thought it might be of interest to you to learning how easy the process was. I also got a message from our automation guru Olav that custom Teams Backgrounds can be pushed out to everyone in the company, something that makes company branding and control much more straightforward." - Pernille Brown, Marketing Manager


Simple step by step:

  1. Create the templates in the different applications (e.g. Marketing department)
  2. Upload, test, and then push it out to the organization with the custom solution (e.g. IT-department). The customer itself can do maintenance and edits of the files; Ironstone does not have to be involved after IronSync is up and running.

  3. Access the templates straight from the Office 365 applications (End-user in e.g. Word)

The functionality is available as a part of our Best Place to Work solution, where we deliver a complete client management solution, built on Microsoft cloud technology
