Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams delivers on four core promises to create a digital workspace for high performing teams.

First, Microsoft Teams starts with chat. Fast, fluid, low-overhead, and instantly familiar. Easy to share information and accelerate decision making.

This modern conversations experience supports persistent, threaded chats to keep everyone engaged. Team conversations are open by default, and of course there is the ability for private discussions, too. People can include emojis, memes and other fun graphics in their messages, which allows team culture to shine through.

Not just chat – also audio and video calling, email integration, code formatting, and support for more types of native content in a chat.

Second, around chat, Microsoft brought together everything else a team needs to be productive, making Microsoft Teams a true hub for teamwork. The Office apps and services that people use every day – Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, SharePoint, the new Planner Kanban task management app, Stream video portal, even Power BI – are all built-in, so people have the information and tools they need right within the context of Microsoft Teams.

Every group inside Teams is unique,each group can customize their workspace with tabs, connectors and bots. Microsoft Teams shares the same Connector platform with Exchange, and has full support for the Microsoft Bot Framework.

Using tabs, each team can customize its environment either with the familiar Microsoft tools like Planner and Visual Studio Team Services, or with an ever-growing range of third party services.

To bring our users a breadth of customization options, Microsoft continues to work with more than 150 partners, along with new partnerships with SAP and Trello.  SuccessFactors will help employees and managers track goals and performance as part of the way they work in Microsoft Teams every day. Trello will empower groups to easily get projects done with boards, lists, and cards right within Teams. These partnerships give users shared perspective on all their work, without having to switch tools.
