Introduction to Microsoft Teams

Office 365 Teams is a new way of communicating and storing files. Instead of having to search a shared drive for files, or your whole mailbox for information, Teams provides a way to collaborate and share by project or by working group. This means that everything that happens in relation to a team or project is in one place, making it easier to find the information you need and to keep this up-to-date.

This half-day course is an introduction to working with Teams and covers setting up Teams and how to structure them, as well as using Channels, Chat, Files and Meetings.
