What if we told you that Microsoft 365 has tools for users that gives them the opportunity to collaborate with each other not only through a computer, but also a mobile device? Tools that can create a team space for users that operates in real-time, gives the ability to co-author documents/files, and can all be done on the go?
Interested yet? Well, we are going to quickly take you back to grade school by using the Five W’s to answer basic questions about these new collaborative tools.
Thankfully, these tools don’t only pertain to positions of a higher seniority. From an intern to the CEO, every position in a company can benefit from these tools.
So you’re probably wondering what exactly are all of the collaboration tools that Microsoft 365 offers? Let’s dive a little deeper into this one.
Microsoft 365 offers a real-time team chat space for users called Microsoft Teams. This application allows users to collaborate with each other on ideas, files, meetings schedules, and projects with any device that has the Teams application. You don’t have to worry about updating the latest file since Teams is always syncing the latest version to your device.
You can also take it a step further by getting Microsoft Teams Room, a more secure and simple way to hold a meeting by inviting your conference room to join the meeting with everyone else. Made for 3 different sized rooms, this platform’s features include one-touch join, content casting, and remote access for the whole company.
Another collaboration tool Microsoft 365 offers is a file hosting service called OneDrive. Users are able to safely store their files into the cloud, where they will then be able to access them from almost any of their devices. Once you save your file to OneDrive, you can edit, share, and collaborate both with internal and external people on any device.
SharePoint is a web-based platform where you can create forms, workflows, sync and store files, and build sites and document libraries. It has a search feature that can find specific files, documents, or people in your organization. You can also decide which documents you want to be private, public, and/or shareable.
These tools are allowing users to be able to access their work and/or get in touch with their peers at any time. There is no more need for worrying about how you are going to finish a project from home when you can’t make it into the office. These tools were created for that type of a situation.
Anywhere! At the office, in your own home, and even another country. That is one of the most innovative parts about these new tools. If your device has the apps and security network, whether that be your computer or mobile device, you will be able to work/collaborate on projects from the company. No VPN needed!
Whether it is a small or big business, you need to work as a team, that is the only way to achieve the highest level of speed and efficiency. Microsoft 365 is giving users like you the chance to more efficient collaboration techniques into your work.
