We found out this week that one of our favourite tools in the office is now available free to anyone! Microsoft teams is essentially a group messaging app designed for organisations with the core aim to enhance productivity, providing an alternative to or even replacing emails.
Communicate with your colleagues through:
- Instant Messaging
- Voice & Video Calls
- Group Meetings
Why we love it!
Teams is a complete chat and online meetings solution. It allows you to communicate with ease amongst your colleagues. You can make multiple different group chat threads based on different areas of your organisation allowing productivity to increase.
You can host audio, video and web conferences with anyone inside your organisation. This is a great feature if you have people in different offices.
The desktop sharing features are great if need help and need support directly on your computer or if you want to share with your colleagues what you have been working on. We also find it a great tool to train your colleagues with new tasks and features, especially if they are based in a different office.
Other Key Features:
- Scheduling assistance
- Note taking
- Desktop sharing
- Uploading files
- Coauthor Office 365 Apps
