Microsoft Teams is the chat-based workspace in Office 365 that helps teams achieve more together. On the heels of today’s preview announcement, Microsoft Mechanics catches up with Dan Stevenson, principal group program manager for Microsoft Teams, who demonstrates step by step how to get started—from user experiences for chat and collaboration to what Office 365 administrators need to do to enable and manage Microsoft Teams.
Dan explains how Microsoft Teams brings together people, conversations, content and the tools teams need with a real focus on teams, and built around chat. The Microsoft Teams chat workspace integrates with all the familiar Office apps and capabilities, such as SharePoint document libraries, OneNote, Planner, Power BI, team calendar and more.
We walk through the process to launch Microsoft Teams in Office 365 in the browser, how to download the app and everything you can do within the apps for the desktop and mobile. Microsoft Teams works in the browser and apps are available for Windows, Mac, Android and iOS platforms. Dan also demonstrates the specifics on how to get Microsoft Teams running using the Office 365 admin center and the controls available for configuring and managing the experience for your organization.
