Microsoft Teams is the ultimate messaging app for your organization—a workspace for real-time collaboration and communication, meetings, file and app sharing, and even the occasional emoji! All in one place, all in the open, all accessible to everyone.
Here’s a few great reasons we recommend you should try it:
- Rich chat with text, audio, video, and file sharing.
- Have a private chat to develop an idea, then share it with the entire org.
- Store all your files, docs, and more in one place.
- Integrate your favorite apps—Planner, Trello, GitHub, and many more.
Learn the Basics
Microsoft Teams is a collaboration app that helps your team stay organized and have conversations—all in one place.
Here’s a quick overview of the navigation menu shown on the left hand side of the Microsoft Teams application.
- Teams – Find channels to belong to or create your own. Inside channels you can hold on-the-spot meetings, have conversations, and share files.
- Meetings – See everything you’ve got lined up for the day or week. Or, schedule a meeting. This calendar syncs with your Outlook calendar.
- Calls – In some cases, if your organization has it set up, you can call anyone from Teams, even if they’re not using Teams.
- Activity – Catch up on all your unread messages, @mentions, replies, and more.
Use the command box at the top to search for specific items or people, take quick actions, and launch apps.
