PS:  for context, I work as a full-time Service Adoption Specialist in the field (National Security, Civilian, and DoD organizations) focused on Teams, leading some of the largest and fastest adopted Teams deployments in the world.  If your experience differs, I’d love to hear about it and learn from it!  Thanks in advance.
