1. Start with chat.

Create a small group chat with colleagues you work with most closely,a great way to communicate in the moment. You can name and ‘favorite’the chat for easy reference.

2. Connect from anywhere.

Download the Microsoft Teams desktop and mobile apps to enable team-work from anywhere.

3. Go big.

Create larger teams with dedicated channels to specific topics, projects,disciplines—whatever you like. Better to have fewer, larger teams with more channels than many, small teams with few channels.

4. Customize channels.

Upload files to the appropriate channel and pin frequently used files to make it easier for everyone to find.

5. Add apps to channels.

Do more in one place by integrating favorite apps and services—such as Word, PowerPoint, Excel Power BI, Planner, SurveyMonkey, HootSuite and more—with team chats and meetings.
