Teamwork & collaboration: 6 advantages of using Microsoft Teams
It’s no secret that ‘teamwork’ is key; whether it be at work or at school, without it we wouldn’t be able to accomplish our tasks. It not only helps teams gel properly together, but it also increases morale in the workplace and enhances productivity too.
Throughout the last few years, collaboration and teamwork have undergone significant change, impacting the way we work. With the development of new collaboration software, we are now able to communicate efficiently with team members regardless of their geographical location. Of course, there are a lot of options to choose from, but there is one particularly useful solution that stands out ahead of the rest, and that is a shared workspace tool called Microsoft Teams.
Released in 2017 as an alternative to other platforms like Slack, Microsoft Teams has proven itself to be an effective and useful software tool that allows teams to collaborate more efficiently at work.
So, in what ways does it stand out ahead of its competitors? Below, we look at some of the benefits of Microsoft Teams and why businesses should start using it.
Microsoft Teams makes it a lot easier to focus on specific projects, which helps teams work more efficiently when collaborating on high-priority tasks.
It can be very time-consuming when you have to wade through a “high volume” of unfiltered inboxes from many different senders.
Microsoft Teams helps make it easier for users to find the information that they are looking for. It divides information into selected channels, so you’ll only be able to view messages, documents, and meetings pertaining to that particular channel. As a result, there’s less chance of you being distracted by unimportant conversations, and you’ll spend less time cleaning up a messy or unorganised inbox, which as we all know, can be extremely time-consuming to organise.
Microsoft Teams makes it possible for you to focus on your tasks at hand, only giving you information relating to the work that you are currently doing.
