Module 2: Collaborating with Teams
In this module we will discuss how we use the Teams area of Teams to collaborate with our colleagues. As discussed in Module 1, a Team can be a department or a project in a small or large group. It gives you one area to store and share all your conversations, files, meetings and links to other apps and systems that the team use regularly. This is likely to be the area of Teams that you will spend the most time in so it is essential to know as much about managing individual Teams as possible to ensure successful adoption and ongoing use of Microsoft Teams.
