Microsoft Teams is an excellent tool with a variety of features that makes communicating with others easy and efficient. It’s packed with resources to help you chat with co-workers, send the important messages and conduct meetings all in one place. So let’s jump in and take a look.
Getting Started in Teams
First, we’ll look at the different options we have on the left panel. There, you’ll find the Activity tab which gives you a feed of all the conversations happening that you’re a part of.
The Chat tab lists all the individual chats you have going on with your contacts.
These personal conversations can also include multiple people if you create a group meeting with the Add People button in the top-right.
The next section we have is Teams, where chats are separated by different channels. This allows departments to have their own internal conversations with each other. You can also establish a company-wide conversation where everyone in your organization is included.
Inside A Chat
When you actually have a chat, you’re given a variety of options for creating messages such as adding attachments, GIFs, emojis and links.
You can also see people face-to-face by conducting a video conference with the video call button. This way, geography and time zones won’t get in the way of your communication.
