Microsoft Teams: How to stay productive and engaged with your team

The current crisis has businesses the world over examining and reformulating their business strategy. Sales projections are off, yearly goals must be re-prioritized, employees are being furloughed and laid-off, and in-person events are cancelled. With so many important concerns, it can feel overwhelming.

Unfortunately, that’s not all you need to worry about. You also need to figure out how to communicate, collaborate, and manage a remote work force, while simultaneously minimizing disruption to your employees. Luckily, there’s a tool that can do all three: Microsoft Teams.

Microsoft Teams allows you to stay organized by separating your employees into various teams depending on their roles and responsibilities. You can then order these by importance, so your most important teams always come up first. So, if you are a project manager, you can use these groups to stay on top of different projects and priorities.

Microsoft Teams also allows you to manage who is on your team. You can add owners, members, guests, and remove folks who are no longer relevant to the team with the click of a button. You can even share and collaborate on documents in real time, right from Teams.

Staying organized is just one of the benefits of using Microsoft Teams. You can also use Microsoft Teams chat to keep things fun and energetic. You can send GIFs, stickers, emoticons, and even quick replies with a reaction so that you don’t lose focus on your task.

Microsoft Teams is a powerful tool, but to get the most out of it, you will need to explore it. We’ve also put together a guide that you can use to learn the basics of Microsoft Teams. You can download the guide at
