The pandemic has introduced new realities such as social distancing and lockdowns. The traditional working environment is changing, and businesses need new ways to survive. One of the best ways to tackle this new challenge is to introduce remote working. Businesses are spending a lot of money to revamp their remote working infrastructure. However, your business doesn’t have to spend a fortune to enable remote working. All you need is Microsoft Teams.
Here is how Microsoft Teams can help your business introduce remote working.
What is Microsoft Teams?
Microsoft Teams aggregates all collaborative functions (Chat, Meetings, Call, and Collaborate tools) and displays them in one window. The aggregation helps users schedule meetings, create and share documents, and organize their calendars. With Microsoft 365 (formerly known as Office 365), your business gets Microsoft Teams. It is a centralized collaborative hub that includes business-oriented chat app to unify your team anywhere and everywhere.
Not only does Microsoft Teams offer all of Microsoft 365 applications (Word, Excel, OneDrive, Sharepoint, and the list goes on) it integrates with Outlook email, which enables remote workers to schedule online meetings seamlessly with real-time collaboration with just a couple of clicks. Microsoft Teams is a cloud-powered app, which can be powered on cellphones (iPhones and Androids), tablets, and computer machines (laptops, desktops, etc). This enables remote workers to be empowered to work literally anywhere and everywhere.
How to Use Microsoft Teams
Before you purchase Microsoft Teams, you need to know how it works. This means you must understand its implication and role in the wider Office 365 ecosystem.
Every team you create will sync with all Microsoft 365 features, such as Excel.
The first thing you need to do is set up your team. This is a fairly easy process that can be completed in less than 10 clicks. The main things you will need to key in are the description and team name. Once you have created the team, you can add members. Each new team will have its own SharePoint site and a corresponding Office 365 Group.
You can create subsections within each team. The subsections make specialization within the group easier. For instance, you can have a subsection for the sales team, the finance team, and the marketing team. Microsoft also allows you to delete a subsection or rename it.

When you enable Microsoft Teams with Dynamics 365, it creates a single, shared workspace. Microsoft Teams is a feature of Dynamics 365 that allows businesses to stay connected at all times. Its unified collaboration tools feature allows remote group meetings and instantaneous communication.
