5 reasons why you should start using Microsoft Teams today
It’s more than just chat. You can use the chat window in Teams to have quick conversations with your colleagues. But there is so much more to it than just chat. Need to share a file? Just attach it in the chat. Then simply call or video call your colleague to discuss the file straight from the window. Or schedule a meeting without leaving the chat.
Meetings in Teams makes the experience so much easier. As soon as you create the meeting, you can start chatting with the participants, share the files that you need them to review, and keep track of the meeting notes and to-dos. Then after, the recording of the call is immediately available in the same tab, so if you missed the meeting, you don’t need to hunt for the recording. It’s right there, with the meeting notes and agreed actions.
Drowning in your emails becomes a thing of the past. As conversations are now held in a structural way in your Teams, you no longer have all the email-upon-email response, often sent as a Reply All. And if somebody needs to send you a file, or ask you a one-liner question? That’s what Chat’s for!
Thanks to the tight integration with Office365, you don’t need to switch apps when you need to collaborate on a document. You can create the Word, Excel or PowerPoint document in Teams, immediately share it with your coworkers and then co-author within a blink of an eye.No more sending out different versions through email and the resulting version confusion. You can add comments and to-dos, and chat with your coworkers to discuss the document right there.
While on working remotely, we need to stay connected, be reachable and have access to resources. With the Teams phone app, you have immediate access to all your apps and documents. You can easily respond to chat and conversations, join meetings with one click and continue to collaborate. So even on the move, you are kept completely in the loop.
Work remotely without feeling remote.
