Are you making the most of Microsoft Teams?

Office 365 is a fantastic package, and one in which many businesses use daily. The platform comes with a number of great functionalities and our team are keen to ensure clients are making the most from what it has to offer!

One of the latest tools we’ve been excited to demo to our clients is Microsoft Teams – the chat-based collaboration solution that allows you to join forces online sharing conversations and content along with all the tools your organisation relies on. So, how can you make the most of Microsoft Teams? Here are some of our go-to features:

Chat Capabilities

First and foremost the chat functionality allows your business to streamline communications with members of your organisation.  As well as on desktop Teams provides a simple and easy-to-use app that allows you to talk with your team via text, have a voice conversation, or a video meeting making communication effortless. With Skype for Business soon reaching its end of life this one’s key for internal comms within our team!

Chat Channels

In Teams you can dedicate your chats for certain topics. This lets users keep on track and stick on discussion in each channel allowing a smoother resolution time and causing minimal distraction.

Scheduling Capabilities

The Meetings section of Teams enables you to view clearly your scheduled meetings, the timing, the subject, and a list of attendees. Attendees of the meeting can also share an agenda beforehand, take notes during the meeting as well as find the notes (using the notes tab) once the meeting is over.

App Integration

Teams allows users to put all of the tools you use daily (Microsoft-based or not) in one centralised location. Programs such as Word, Evernote, Excel, Survey Monkey, PowerPoint, Twitter, SharePoint, Adobe Creative Cloud and OneNote are built into Teams. This enables you to have those useful tools available at your fingertips combining your workspace together seamlessly.

Secure Platform

Teams provides users with end-to-end security, administrative control, and compliance. This is all powered by Office 365 keeping you and your data safe and secure!
