Microsoft Teams is a way to facilitate a more open, digital environment for your business. This unified communications platform can be run on Windows, Mac, Android, iOS, and web platforms, ensuring that every person in your company has access to these tools. For those new to this tool, you may be wondering: what exactly do I get? In today’s article, we are going to answer that question and more!
Teams and Channels
One of the greatest aspects of Microsoft Teams is its ability to help you organize. Organize your information and your people by making use of the “Teams” and “Channels” capabilities.
Teams are the collection of people, content, and tools within an organization. They can be private or public depending on the company’s needs. Channels, on the other hand, are dedicated sections within a team. These help keep conversations organized by specific topics, projects or disciplines.
The Apps You Love, The Access You Need
Through Microsoft Teams your people have access to everything that Office 365 has to offer. Word, Excel, PowerPoint, SharePoint, OneNote, Planner, Power BI, and Delve are all built into Microsoft Teams so people have all the information and tools they need at their fingertips.
Collaborate in Real-Time
Enjoy chat tools that allow your team members to open files and work collaboratively on them in real-time. Alternatively, the files can be downloaded, altered, and uploaded back into the chat later. Chat history will also keep all your information in one place that is easily searchable. Reviewing changes or logging minutes will become a cinch!
Adjust. Grow. Customize.
Your business is unique, so your needs will be just as unique. Microsoft Teams doesn’t force you to settle for cookie-cutter solutions. Instead, take advantage of Teams rich extensibility and open APIs. For those who use third-party services, Teams can be customized to provide notifications and updates.
