Have you set up SharePoint and Teams to work together?

Organisations and teams come in all different shapes and sizes, and team members can be local or spread worldwide. They can include vendors and contractors, along with full-time employees. Initiatives and work can span enterprises, organisations, and small project teams.

Microsoft 365, including Teams, SharePoint, and OneDrive, is designed to be a universal toolkit to give your team members integrated and flexible ways to work for their projects and tasks.

This guide focuses on the powerful capabilities of Teams, SharePoint, and OneDrive, including document storage, collaboration, sharing, and conversations. You don’t have to use just one tool to get your work done, each works together to provide optimal productivity.

Here’s an example of how you can use these services together: When you create a team, an Office 365 group and a SharePoint team site are automatically created for you. You can upload your documents in the SharePoint team site. Then, when a draft of your specifications document is ready for review, it’s easy to add the file to your Team’s team, and use the chat-based system to let everyone know it is ready for review.

Team members can open the file right in Teams and start making changes or commenting. If a team member stores a file in OneDrive, it can also be added to the Teams channel by using the Files tab in Teams. Best of all, you can go mobile with Teams, so your project members can work from anywhere.

Teams is Tasks oriented. It is necessary to keep all things related to one task in one place, like messages, notes, and meeting documents. Information sharing becomes a smoother process and this often eliminates extra work being done.

Microsoft Teams aligns all these modes of communication under a single “pane of glass” to focus on collaboration rather than collaboration tools. For certain kinds of communication – specifically anything involving a team of people – it’s a lot easier than juggling multiple tools.
