Connect With Others in Microsoft Teams

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.

01 Activity Tab

The Chat tab lists all the individual chats you have going on with your contacts.

02 Chat Tab

These personal conversations can also include multiple people if you create a group meeting with the Add People button in the top-right.

03 Group Meeting

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.
