Microsoft Teams is latest service in Office 365 for team communication and collaboration. It introduces a chat-based workspace—or more accurately, a persistent chat-based workspace—for teams of people to work together, while leveraging other Office 365 and third-party services. Microsoft Teams offers specific capabilities that can be used to enable teams to hold better meetings. Microsoft is making bold investments to turn Teams into the “hub for teamwork.”
In order to use Microsoft Teams for meetings, teams should make Microsoft Teams their place of working together. Hold conversations to share ideas, store files and documents, and track work tasks—all in Microsoft Teams. Using Teams for meetings will then be a natural extension of the team’s work style, not a separate application divorced from everyday work. Teams needs to become the hub for teamwork.
