Many companies and organizations continue to operate with a largely remote workforce. That’s meant having to create new business processes and deploying new technologies that allow for employees to remain connected and productive.
Microsoft Teams is one of the top products in use today to address the challenges of a remote workforce. Understanding how Microsoft Teams works and its top features can help your organization make an informed choice about technology needs during the COVID-19 pandemic.
At its core, Microsoft Teams is a collaboration and communication tool. It integrates with the popular Microsoft Office 365 cloud-based suite of applications. That means users can access Word, Excel, PowerPoint and other technologies in a shared space that facilitates collaborative work among team members.
Microsoft Teams usage has skyrocketed. In July 2019, the platform had 13 million daily users. In April 2020, it had more than 75 million.
Users can create teams and use the virtual space for posts by members, shared files and chat rooms. Teams easily lets users hold video or voice chats with members and others.
When working on projects together, team members can create and edit Word, Excel or PowerPoint documents with progress automatically saved. A copy is synced into OneDrive cloud storage and locally on SharePoint, allowing all team members access to shared content whenever needed. Edits are saved in real time.
Microsoft Teams is an ideal tool for workers who have to work together or communicate from remote workspaces. Here are the main benefits of using Microsoft Teams.
