Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams is a collaboration app that helps your team stay organized and have conversations - all in one place.

Chat, meet, call, share files, and more with Microsoft Teams. Teams allows for your group to interact by discussion pages, share documents with one another, hold video conferencing meetings, and provides a OneDrive-like group file repository. Add on the extra apps you need like Office Online, forms, and many other applications.
