Microsoft Teams is a new chat-based workspace that integrates the whole software suite to help your team work together. Microsoft Teams in an entirely new experience that brings together people, conversations and content – along with the tools that teams need – so they can easily collaborate to achieve more.
Microsoft Teams is primarily a chat-based tool for collaboration that allows teams to communicate in open and persistent way. Threads can be created and customised for specific projects or teams, plus there is the ability for private discussions. The conversation view includes the ability to drop meetings straight into chat, alongside files, notes and project boards.
As Microsoft Teams is integrated with Office 365 it is the perfect platform for sharing files and updates without relying on email. Word, Excel, PowerPoint, 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. Third-party apps such as Twitter, Github, and eventually Zendesk can also be integrated into Microsoft Teams.
