Communicate the rollout plan
One of the keys to successful deployments of Evernote Teams involves effective and regular communication with your team. Identify additional team members to join a rollout committee who can help champion Evernote within the organization and support deployment efforts.
Announce launch of Evernote Teams
Communicate expectations and manage feedback from the start. Once you've finalized the rollout plan and recruited a couple of others to help out, send out an email to your team to let them know your plans. Use the following email example and deployment calendar template to help guide your team communications:

Educate your team
Adoption of new tools and new processes, and change in general, is often challenging for people, so frequent and ongoing communication is crucial to the success of your rollout. People will want a roadmap of deployment phases, project timelines, and information about where they can go to find help and support.
