Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams

Keep the conversation and productivity going with Microsoft Teams. This application developed by Microsoft is a great tool to use anywhere. Microsoft Teams give your employees the option to work remotely while having every important factor for your business in one place. You can utilize features such as a schedule, file sharing, collaborative project work and more! Microsoft Teams allows you to connect and conversate with everyone in your business, and even outside of your business!

Microsoft Teams allows an individual outside your business to collaborate in two ways. This first way is through an external access. This means you will only be able to communicate using the calling feature. The second way is using guest access. Unlike external access, guest access allows the individual the opportunity to collaborate with your team more productively. Along with calling, guests can access any files and applications that are within a team. Microsoft Teams is a fantastic tool to use for your business!

Ultimately, any individual working in a specific team will be able to access this information quicker. Microsoft Teams features have two important categories you should understand. These two are teams and channels:  

  • Teams: the base of each project or department. Team owners and members can access their designated department's information linking to the channels. A few examples of teams can be internal/external projects, sales, finance, etc.
  • Channels: the subcategories of each team. Each channel allows you to link different Microsoft applications such as SharePoint, OneDrive, Dynamics 365, Planner, and more!
  An employee who creates a team is automatically the owner. Form there, the owner can add new members and assign them roles. The owner can even assign any member as an owner as well!
