Work on documents together

Link across teams to co-author and edit documents in real-time, share and store files, and gather feedback all in one place.

Best Practices

Work with a cloud-first mentality

Save your files to your teams, then share a link to save your and your colleagues’ inbox space.

Get up to speed on version controls

Learn how file versioning and check-out features work so you can get away from trying to manage versions and archives.

Connect across business boundaries

Host and join conference calls and video calls with people outside of your organization even if they’re not on Teams.

Best Practices

Host calls with external contacts

For simple video/conference calls with external clients you can set up a normal Teams call and add your external participants. They can join via a browser or Teams client.

Set up guest access

If your external contact does have Teams deployed, inquire if they have guest access enabled and if they could join you to a team.

Access meetings by phone

External clients can also join your Teams meeting by phone, though that would limit their meeting options.

Hold effective meetings

Bring people together to chat, share content and access the tools you need to collaborate and achieve more.

Best Practices

Use video

People are more engaged when they can see each other. Use video and encourage all participants to do so.

Capture and share notes

Meeting Notes can be captured directly in the meeting and the meeting chat is available for later reference as well as for team members who are not able to join.

Prepare shared content ahead of time

Understand the different ways to share content during the meeting so you are prepared with the best option. Have your content ready to share before starting the call.

Use real-time collaboration tools

Collaboration tools, such as Whiteboard, help capture work and ideas for easy sharing later.

Turn on accessibility options

Teams gives you the ability to turn on live captions and subtitles
