Why Your Team Needs Microsoft Teams Right Now

Microsoft Teams is the hub for digital teamwork in Office 365. Here at PixelMill, we spend most of our workday in Teams. Whether we are co-authoring a document, meeting with a client, or strategizing with a co-worker, it’s all happening in one place. So what makes Teams such an effective tool? Let’s break it down: 

Real-time Collaboration Brings Consistency & Productivity 

Microsoft Teams’ project-oriented structure makes collaboration a breeze.  

  • Co-author files built in apps like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, & SharePoint with ease.  
  • Meet and converse in project-specific channels. 
  • Get on the same page with threaded conversations. 
  • Present to a large group with web conferencing.  
External Sharing/Collaboration Extends Your Workspace 

Public or Private Teams give you controlled external access so your internal team can easily collaborate and share with users outside your organization. 

Customized and Extended Teams Saves Times 

The beauty of Teams is that it inherently integrates with the Office365 tools you’re currently using. Teams was also built to bring your organization’s digital tools, applications, and services into one place making your workflows more efficient. Teams integrates well with many third-party tools and more are being added constantly. 

Office 365 Integrations:     
  • Office – Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Planner, etc. 
  • Calendar 
    • Meetings 
  • Files 
    • SharePoint 
    • OneDrive 
  • Dynamics

  • Stream 
  • Power Platform 
  • Forms 
  • And more! 
Third-Party Integrations:

Microsoft Teams is an impressive tool out of the box, but without thoughtful design, strategy, and governance it can quickly become the wild west. Like most things in life, proper planning prevents poor performance, and strategy is key to delivering a winning solution. Set your team up for success with a clear path and documented expectations including permissions, document storage, tab structure, integrations, and more.
