Thinking about organisation’s productivity and team collaboration, and not exactly sure how to achieve it? There are numbers of applications and technologies available, but Microsoft Office 365 Teams app is a unique and one-stop shop for collaboration, designed to help the business to grow.
An organisation’s workplace is nothing without conversations. Microsoft Office Teams is a fast and powerful platform that allows team members to collaborate as efficient and instinctive as possible. All the text, audio, and video conversation can be done within the team conversation window.
Microsoft made Teams app fully integrated with Office 365 Groups, persistent chat, meetings, classic tools such as Excel, Word, PowerPoint, and Skype for Business. It also integrates well with newer tools like Power BI, SharePoint Team Site and Delve etc. All the app tabs appears in one clean place which help to interact team members seamlessly. A user can work on projects, schedule a meeting, and make an audio or video call without leaving a team conversation in a Channel.
This is probably the best point of Microsoft Team app. If the organisation already own a Microsoft Office 365 license, then the Teams application won’t cost any money. Although, it also has a paid versions (Essential and Premium) for more advanced features.
Microsoft Office made Teams application so convenient to the users. It allows a user to work on documents without leaving a chat or meeting. Within Teams, any user can edit Microsoft Office documents and also pin the most important files, documents, resources and websites that are used frequently.
Besides integrating smoothly within Teams application, Microsoft Teams allow integrating with third-party services and tools. A user can add Cloud storage features like Dropbox, ShareFile and Google Drive etc. It also allows the marketing team to manage and bring the content within the channel from Hootsuite.
Bots are just like your friends. They help the user to complete the tasks without leaving the conversation. They appear like any other team member and are always online. For example, T-Bot can answer user question about Teams. And with Kayak Bot user can create travel plans, inquire about ticket price and track flights.
By using ‘’@’’ sign within a Channel or conversation, the specifically mentioned team member receives a notification. A user can also use the filters tool to search or view activity or anything else according to their need in the conversation.
At present, most of the communication takes place through mobile phonedevices. Microsoft Teams has its desktop and mobile application that allowusers to have seamless collaboration anytime with team members and shareinformation, files, schedule and attend the meetings.
