Say Hello to Microsoft Teams

Say Hello to Microsoft Teams

covid-teams-week2-training-thumb.pngWith COVID-19 continuing to impact people and countries around the world, organisations everywhere are moving to remote work and you are probably encouraging your teams to work from home as much as possible and we expect this trend to continue over the next few months, even when lockdown ends.

So what can you expect from Microsoft Teams? Well do you…

  • Want to find a better way to stay connected with your teammates, even if they are locked down and working from home?
  • Want to get down on multiple copies of the same document, because you asked your teammates to review a document only to have five versions come back to your email inbox?
  • Feel like managing your projects is a project in itself?

If you answered, ‘Yes’ to any of the above questions, then take a look at the advantages of Microsoft Teams — the hub for business communication and collaboration, by viewing this 15 minute video. Learn about the advantages of Teams including staying connected with teammates during remote work, collaborating on documents, and managing projects more easily. Please Note: This is NOT a how-to-use Teams class. If you want to learn how to chat, meet and collaborate in Teams, please register for the Get Started with Teams class. Thanks!
