Increase Productivity with the Microsoft Teams Chat
By: Joshua Weiss, Marketing Associate
Microsoft Teams is a workplace chat app that has integrated everything Office 365 offers and keeps it all in one convenient location.
Microsoft Teams is all about keeping its users working together. While Teams has tons of functions, like integrated apps, bots to help guide and work for you, enterprise-level security, and more, its main goal is to allow its users an easy and secure way to speak about work, all while building team chemistry.
In today’s work climate, team chemistry can make or break your business. If everyone is not on the same page it can lead to disastrous results and we want the opposite of that. We can achieve this through the use of the Microsoft Teams chat.
Team chat is such a useful tool to have. Long gone are the days of slow back and forth emails between colleagues. Nowadays, everyone wants a response ASAP and Teams allow people to deliver on that.
With the Teams chat, people can be connected immediately in a number of ways. You can simply text chat people or do things like call or video chat, all while being completely secure through the Microsoft cloud. Users can create teams in channels for specific projects and add the users they want into a specific team.
Here is an example of how useful this chat is. Let’s say you need advice on a project. All you would have to do is message a coworker, share your screen (by pressing one button inside the chat window) and they can see exactly what you see, allowing a simple and efficient way to give feedback. Also, if they wanted to add something, you could just give them control and they can add whatever they need. Instead of you having to email them the entire document and wait for it to get back to you before working on it again.
Teams are so simple yet so useful for workers because the benefit of quickly receiving feedback allows for people’s creativity to continue flowing instead of the typical ups and downs, we normally face.
One of the best features Teams has is the ability to add a Task from Microsoft Planner directly into a Team. This allows us to breakdown the work into tangible tasks and make everyone aware of the To-Dos for a project. Such as a Task to meet weekly with reminders directly into our Outlook. This way, once we are in a chat, we will be organized as to what we talk about and have a clear path to get us to our goal.
Like the old saying “time is money”, staying productive at work will bring you more profits. Teams is a great way to add value and build productivity throughout your business. Don’t miss out, with Teams you can be the most productive you have ever been!
