For a changing modern workplace, start your journey with Office Line and Microsoft Teams.
First, Microsoft Teams is a modern-day chat environment that keeps everyone in the know with complete chat history, whether across the team or in a private chat. People can see content and chat history anytime. Team chats and activities are visible to the entire team; small group conversations can use private chats. With web, desktop, and mobile versions, Microsoft Teams allows members to connect and communicate across devices.
In Microsoft Teams, everything that team members need—chat, content, people, and tools—all live in the same team workspace. Teams have access to the everyday apps they rely on daily for getting work done, such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Because Microsoft Teams is integrated with Office 365, teams have quick access to the information they need, whether they are files shared through SharePoint or notes in OneNote.
- Customizable for each team
Microsoft Teams is customizable for the way different teams work. You can easily tailor the workspace to include content and capabilities the team needs. For example, you can add new tabs to a channel for quick access to frequently used documents and cloud services like PowerPoint and Planner. Or, pull in connectors for third party tools like RSS, Trello, GitHub, and Asana. You can build custom integrations through Connector APIs, Microsoft bot framework, and public preview APIs.
Lastly, Microsoft Teams provides a great collaboration experience while upholding our commitments to safeguard customer and user data. Microsoft Teams was designed with compliance, authentication, and privacy in mind with support for industry standards, strong security measures including two-factor authentication, hard passwords, and access policies. Your data is always encrypted, whether it is chat, notes, or files. In short, it’s your data; you own it, and you control it.
