Communication is Key
Microsoft Teams is the latest offering for Office 365 subscribers, and it just might be the biggest.
Bringing together the best of today’s modern workplace chat applications with dedicated spaces for teams and projects, one on one chats, and even smart bots; There’s little doubt that Teams is a welcome effort to unify all the different ways we communicate.
Check out some of the most eye-catching features below:
All for One
Thanks to integration with Outlook and Skype for Business, you’ll never have to worry about jumping between three different screens just to make sure you don’t miss something buried in your calendar. Just jump into the “Meetings” tab and watch everything roll in.
*As an added bonus you can even join/schedule meetings directly from the Teams application
A New Home for Knowledge
While Wikipedia is indisputably the go-to for the world’s knowledge, it’s regrettably doesn’t have much to offer when it comes to the ins and outs of your Team/Project Knowledge Base.
With Teams, build your own Wiki to support your team. Giving your Knowledge Base a home can make a world of difference in transferring know-home and process with your team members.
No More “Hey Can You Re-send That?”
Thanks to Teams’ OneDrive and SharePoint integration, finding and collaborating on files has never been so easy. Just upload a file and it’s yours to share over and over again.
Get to Work
Now that you’ve had a chance to catch a glimpse of what’s possible with Teams it’s time for you to put it to work.
Collaborative platforms are only as good as the people who use them, so set the bar high and get going!
