If you’ve got an overflowing inbox, you understand they’re a big problem for today’s workers. Teams allows you to create different chat channels for each team based on work streams or topics—perfect for targeted one-on-one or group chatting, messaging and ad-hoc conversations.
The ability to build functional team workspaces not only cuts down on email, now you can bring all the right people together to quickly access key documents and tools, explore data, and get updates from the apps your teams use every day.
You can also customize notifications so you don’t miss important activity and information. Now, all your content, tools, people and conversations are available in the appropriate team workspace.
Adoption of Teams has skyrocketed in the past year as it’s an indispensable tool for an array of time- and money-saving solutions.
Modern meeting experiences
Meetings are an intrinsic, and often onerous, part of our everyday work life. Teams offers a complete meeting solution supporting content sharing, video and audio conferencing. Notifications and chat history ensure everyone is kept up to date. Transform an ordinary meeting into modern meeting in the following ways:

- During a meeting: team members can share their desktop, meeting attachments or a PowerPoint. The meeting can take place in either audio conferencing or video and can be recorded
- After a meeting: team members can review recorded meetings and view previous meeting details in conversation history, giving them complete context
