Evolving digital communication, and the way workers use it to interact with each other, is a constant feature of the workplace. However, the Covid-19 pandemic has dramatically altered the way that millions of people around the world work, and this has led to a considerable rise in the number of people using remote working options such as collaborative software and video communication.
Microsoft (MS) Teams has emerged as one of the most powerful and flexible tools for linking workers in an organization, whether they are in an office environment or working remotely. Teams can also be used in a school or higher education setting if students have to access classes remotely. Teams can be used to create dedicated groups of people (teams), who can then interact with each other on specific subjects. This interaction can include text chats, video calls, document sharing and even knowledge Wikis.
MS Teams is a comprehensive work tool and at first sight it can seem somewhat daunting. However, Microsoft Teams in easy steps is the perfect guide to understanding Teams and becoming a fully-integrated team player. The book looks at all of areas of using Teams, including:
