Microsoft Teams is a dedicated hub that brings together the people, conversations, content and tools your team needs to collaborate and achieve more. Microsoft Teams allows you to readily communicate and make quick decisions in real time.
With Teams, you can initiate a private or group chat, share files and co-author content. You can also host on-line meetings with people inside or outside your organisation and you can make and transfer calls. All this communication can be done across devices, in the office or on the go!
This course is an introduction to Teams and is designed to assist existing Office 365 users who are looking to gain an understanding of the functionality available in Teams within Microsoft 365.
