What is Microsoft Teams?

Microsoft Teams is a fully integrated collaboration platform that Office 365 customers can use to make their group-based work much easier. Originally built around the idea of a chatroom, internally known as channels, Teams allows users to collaborate directly with different groups of people. However, Teams offers much more than a simple chatroom, it can fully synchronize your daily routine and even deliver content and reminders to your smart phone.

What Does Teams Work With?

As a Microsoft product, Teams is integrated with SharePoint, Microsoft’s powerful online data and document storage platform. Because Teams is a part of Office 365, it works seamlessly with an assortment of Microsoft applications and services, including:

  • Microsoft Word
  • Microsoft PowerPoint
  • Microsoft Excel
  • Microsoft OneNote
  • Microsoft OneDrive
  • Microsoft SharePoint
  • Microsoft Planner
  • Microsoft Power BI
  • Microsoft Delve

What’s more, Teams is the focal point for Microsoft’s development of Office 365 collaboration tools, so new tools and applications are being integrated into teams every month. Microsoft Teams also utilizes “Connectors”. These Connectors allow Teams to utilize other services like MailChimp, Evernote, and other applications. Best of all, you can now use Teams for free!
