Do the features of your company’s chat application feel limited? With many tasks and people involved in daily work, having a centralized chat app to help you organize your team not only makes you more efficient, but it also saves time. Here’s how you can use a simple app that lets you do much more.
There are three communication and collaboration tools in Microsoft 365 that provide basically similar solutions for the same problem: Outlook Groups, Yammer, and Microsoft Teams. However, they all have subtle differences that set them apart from one another.
Microsoft recently released several updates to its Teams platform, enabling users to take advantage of its advanced features to effectively communicate with each other. The changes were made in response to the soaring need for business owners and their staff to collaborate remotely amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
Microsoft’s Office 365 has made everyday business operations more efficient with programs like Word, PowerPoint, Excel, OneNote, and Outlook. As if that’s not enough, it also offers these add-ons that streamline users’ workflow.
Teams is ideal for organizations that collaborate frequently.
Even if the subscription model is making more companies look like slow money drains, subscribing to Microsoft’s cloud-based Office 365 is well worth the investment.
Office apps and the files you create with them are accessible wherever there’s an internet connection, but that is actually the bare minimum that O365 offers.
Yammer, Outlook Groups, and Microsoft Teams have plenty in common. They’re all Office 365 tools designed for sharing files and communicating with colleagues. So what differentiates each from the other and when should you use them? Let’s take a quick look.
If you’re like most people, your chat app is limited to asking basic questions or maybe touching base with a colleague. You switch tabs to do one thing and toggle back to do another. It would be great if completing a task were just a matter of keyboard shortcuts and menu items in a single window.
Are you using Microsoft Teams to streamline communication between your employees? If you are, get ready to enjoy a more convenient workplace chat platform. Microsoft has recently announced six new features for Teams.
One new feature that Microsoft will bring to Teams is Cortana, Microsoft’s virtual assistant.
Out of the hundreds of Office 365 tools available to you, you’re probably using only 10-15% of them. This could be due to a lack of training or an unfamiliarity with some of the advanced options available in Word and Excel. But it’s easy to optimize your Office 365 investment by learning more about the following communication and collaboration features.
