New features in Microsoft Teams

blog0 comments

Microsoft Teams facilities and encourages collaboration within a specific team or workgroup. As mentioned in our previous blog All things Microsoft Teams, it is excellent for tracking project and employee progress.

Now, Microsoft has developed Teams even further, with new features making it an even more powerful hub for teamwork by enabling you to use apps in new ways, including the ability to command apps and take quick actions from the command box. You can now also include specific content from an app in a conversation.

Up until now, you had to add screenshots and hyperlinks to your posts in Microsoft Teams. Whereas now, you can bring rich information from apps into a chat or channel message with a simple click. For example, you can search for a weather forecast, and include an interactive card with that information right into your message.

The new personal apps space in Microsoft Teams makes it easy for you to access the apps you wish to access. For example, you can view tasks in Planner, all right within Teams.
You can also easily see items you have recently accessed, such as OneNote notebooks or videos from Microsoft Stream.

Also, with the integration of Slash commands, searching couldn’t be easier in Teams! Now, you both search and take quick actions right from the same command box at the top of the screen.
For example, you can use a slash command to set your status to “away”. Just type a / in the command box to see the list of commands currently available.
