Microsoft Teams is here!

Microsoft Teams is the new tool from Microsoft that brings together information that teams need to work effectively and perform at their peak. This chat-based workspace combines chat, documents, people and tools in one secure place.

Microsoft Teams helps you and the people you work with to:

- Communicate in the moment and keep everyone in the know

- Gain easy access to information you need right in Office 365

- Customize the workspace with the specific content and capabilities you need

- Collaborate with the freedom and confidence of Office 365 security

 

A channel for anything

Channels are how Microsoft Teams organizes conversations. You can set up your channels however you like – by topic, discipline, project or even just for fun! Channels are open to everyone on the team.

 

 

 

 

Chat the way you work

Everyone in the channel can see and join the conversation, but if you need to take it one-on-one, or chat in a smaller group then just select the people you want to talk to and start the chat. You can @mention to bring a conversation to people’s attention, and Like a comment or Flag to yourself for later.

Meetings in moments

You can start a voice or video call right from within the channel or private chat. Invite the whole team, or just those you need, to video call, share screen and collaborate. The call is visible in the chat history for people who missed it to see who joined and what was shared.

 

 

 

 

Stay in the conversation

The Microsoft Teams mobile app ensures that you can stay in touch no matter where you are. The iOS, Android and Windows Phone apps give you all the tools you need to stay part of the team, even when you're on the go. Download them from the App Store, Microsoft Store or Google Play.
