Multiple Teams Conversing About One Project

One of the clever things about the Microsoft Teams tool is that teams may converse with teams. For example you may create groups such as Team A Team B and Team C and then have individuals from one team talk to another team while other members of the teams talk back. The interface allows you to chat to whoever is online or send messages to teams or individuals. You may set up meetings via the meetings icon and upload files that are stored for all to see. There is also an activity icon that shows you which members are talking and/or interacting right now in real time.

Functional And Useful If Fully Deployed

Microsoft Teams has all the potential needed for a fully functioning team-chat and collaboration system. The only potential flaw is that it requires a heavy investment from the users. If members start to ignore the program or fail to log in regularly the whole team collaboration idea starts to come apart. The tool has great potential for teams who are willing to invest their time and energy into using it.
