Microsoft Transforms Remote Working with Microsoft Teams
Microsoft Teams includes OneNote, which appears in the platforms as a tab labeled Notes. This functionality makes it easy for the team to work together with others.
FREMONT, CA: The coronavirus pandemic has taken the workspace remote. When setting up the remote team, businesses will need a communication platform to help connect, collaborate, and manage the remote employees. Microsoft Teams is a global favorite since it encourages teams of any size to use it as their dedicated workspace.
Managing a dispersed population is challenging. Missed conversations, endless back-and-forth, and communication problems are only a couple of the concerns that many teams are experiencing as they migrate to the cloud. One should, however, customize Microsoft Teams to ensure improved coordination, increased performance, and the prevention of issues.
When setting up Microsoft Teams, the first thing firms can do is make sure it is set up for the team. Here are a few steps businesses must follow to set up the Microsoft Teams workspace and ensure that the team has a place to communicate, interact, and work:
Make Different Teams and Channels to Arrange Conversations
Some companies set up Microsoft Teams with a common staff and platforms that function as departments and projects. Others—primarily medium-to-large businesses—create several teams, each with a particular department, then incorporate platforms for smaller groups within their department or project-based partnership. Depending on the size of the company, one can select how it wants to structure the staff. When it is set up, invite the teammates and use the ‘General’ channel to onboard them and explain how things work in this virtual workspace.
Build a Wiki to Keep Track of The Guidelines and Procedures in Place
Since everybody works from home, it is more difficult to create guidelines to ensure proper work etiquette, but Microsoft transforms it all. One can set up a team wiki in Microsoft Teams to remind the team about the dos and don’ts of remote working. With Wiki inbuilt, the team does not have to search for specific regulations or processes for their work. They will instead locate it inside their virtual workspace.
Using Notes for Task Management and Collaboration
Microsoft Teams includes OneNote, which appears in the platforms as a tab labeled Notes. This functionality makes it easy for the team to work together with others. OneNote helps to communicate easily due to its numerous features that make the work simpler. It helps to draw, sketch, highlight notes, and collaborate with a teammate on the same note. One can also use Notes to view and handle activities that each team member has on their plate without having to turn to a different window for each person’s task list.
