At home in Teams

Now that we are working from home en masse, we are looking for all kinds of new forms of contact. At a safe distance, that is! Video calling and collaborating in the cloud is now commonplace. Maybe you've been using Skype or Zoom from your workplace for years, but you're looking for a tool to collaborate with colleagues even better. Have you heard of Microsoft Teams?

What is Microsoft Teams?

Microsoft Teams is part of Office 365 and the successor to Skype. The use of Microsoft Teams has grown explosively in recent years. And that is not without reason. Teams has everything to keep you working efficiently and productively at home and on the road, without you missing a thing.

With Microsoft Teams you can communicate and collaborate with colleagues from a (safe) distance. Video calls, chatting, giving feedback, sharing documents and much more. Everything is super easy and intuitive. Try it yourself and you won't be able to live without it, really!

Activities

On the start screen, you will find all your team's activities at a glance. You can see, for example, if a team member has been added, if you have missed a phone call or if files have been shared. Never miss a thing? Then turn on notifications.

Online collaboration and file sharing

You can chat with colleagues, make video calls, discuss documents online and make decisions.

In Teams, you can easily share your screen with colleagues so everyone can watch. Endless emailing back and forth is now a thing of the past. All documents are in a central location in Teams and can be accessed by anyone with access. Colleagues and team members are quickly informed and up-to-date!

Calls

In "Calls", you see a list of people you often keep in touch with. It's easy. You can also easily add contacts and view your call history.

Files

Microsoft Teams is excellent to use when you work together with colleagues on different files. Documents will be saved in Teams, so your team members will always have the latest versions.
