With Microsoft Teams you can:

  • You can create your own team and add/remove colleagues or external users with Self-service setup and group management.

  • Use chat instead of email to communicate with colleagues in private or group chats.

  • Store your files in a document library which can be accessed by team members. (Each Team you create comes with it's own SharePoint site and document library with up to 25TB of storage)
  • Real-time collaboration on Word, PowerPoint, and Excel documents.
  • Use @mentions to tag members of your team and you can reply with just a single tap.

  • Customize your team by adding tabs for note, documents, web sites, and apps.

  • Integrated with Microsoft Office and Office 365 apps such as Planner, Forms and Flow

Access anywhere anytime once you have an internet connection through the Office 365 portal or you can install the Teams Desktop Application through the software centre on your UCC networked PC.
