Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams is 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. It's naturally integrated with the familiar Office applications and is built from the ground up on the Office 365 global, secure cloud.

Benefits of Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams reduces the friction between Office 365 apps by bringing everything together in one place: people, conversations, content and tools. It becomes your hub for chats, Skype calls and meetings, private and group messages specific to projects. It allows you to share applications like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, websites and OneNote; and you can share assets like calendars, files and email, too. All seamlessly, in real-time. Want to add a Plan in Planner? Request a Microsoft Team to create a Plan which you can access both through Teams and Planner.
