Microsoft Teams: Meetings and Files

This will be the final post (for now) in my Microsoft Teams series.  Previously I wrote about the apps you can get with the new tool as well as I spoke heavily on the chat feature.  In the future I intend to discuss further how Teams works in the back-end and how it integrates into SharePoint Groups.  Today I am going to finish off discussing Microsoft Teams: meetings and files and how they integrate into the tool and different ways to use them.  If you are looking for the other posts I have completed on Teams please click on one of the links below:

Microsoft Teams – Chat Feature

Continuing with the Microsoft Teams series I am working on I will move into the chat feature.  This is the largest feature within Teams and is already the most used.  Within the application, it actually feels like Teams is built around the chat feature instead of chat simply being a component of a larger application.  If you are looking for the other posts I have completed on Teams please click on one of the links below:

Microsoft Teams – The App

The other day I posted my initial thoughts on Microsoft Teams.  To put it bluntly, I really like this new collaboration tool that Microsoft has provided.  It brings all the power of Groups plus throws on great add-ons like chat, video meeting, favorite (quick) tabs, notifications and an app for your Windows or Mac machine as well as your smart phone and tablets.  Today I want to talk about the Microsoft Teams app itself.  I’ll talk further on the other features in future blogs.  To view the other posts I have completed on this series please select from a link below:

Microsoft Teams – First Look and Thoughts

Announcing Microsoft Teams

On November 2, 2016 Microsoft announced what people have already started calling the “slack killer”.  This being Microsoft Teams.  Putting it briefly Teams is a tool that allows you to create small groups of users (usually your team mates or at least others within your organization) to collaborate on projects, common themes or whatever you need to easily work together with others on.  Sounds an awful lot like SharePoint Groups doesn’t it?  Well I will get to that in a bit.  The biggest difference however is that Teams has a chat component, and it’s really slick.  I have already started using it to collaborate on a presentation that my friend Joanne Klein and I are working on.  It allowed us to easily discuss our thoughts on where we wanted our presentation to go and how we wanted to configure it.  We could have even done it via a video meeting if we felt the need.

This is the first post in a four part series I am completing on Microsoft Teams.  You can go directly to the section you are interested by clicking on a link below:
