Collaboration and teamwork are integral for all businesses, and with more people working from home than ever before it’s vital to have the right technology in place to work productively.
Microsoft Teams might not be the first name that comes to mind when you’re considering video conferencing solutions, but for businesses it should be. With Teams you can invite everyone you work with to chat, meet, call, and collaborate all in one place, no matter where you are. Here are the best features that Teams has to offer.
#1 Fully integrated with Office 365
No more switching between apps throughout your conversation, they’re all in one place. All of the every day Office applications you are used to, like Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook, are fully integrated with Microsoft Teams.
Say goodbye to the confusion of emailing different versions of documents and say hello to immediately sharing and collaborating on an up to date, synced version without switching apps. Scheduled meetings will appear in your calendar automatically and you have real-time access to teammates who are online.
#2 More than just chat
The chat window allows you to have quick conversations with your colleagues, but there’s more to it than that.
Share a file instantly via the chat and from the same window, call or video call your colleague to discuss the file, or even schedule a meeting.
#3 Fewer emails
As more conversations take place within Teams, you no longer have those ‘Reply All’ emails cluttering up your mailbox.
#4 Before, during and after in Meetings
Getting everything ready for a meeting can be mammoth task. The agenda is in one email, the invitation in another, and you can’t find that document you were supposed to review before the call – nightmare!
Meetings in Teams streamlines the whole process. As soon as a meeting is created you can start chatting with other participants, share relevant files, and keep track of the meeting notes and tasks. After the meeting is done, the recording of the call is available immediately in the same tab for anyone who missed the meeting or wants to listen again.
