Don’t Be A Slacker, Use Microsoft Teams

Did you know that you have access to Microsoft Teams with your UT Microsoft 365 account? For University use, Microsoft Teams provides comparable functionality to Slack. With Teams you can chat, video call, share documents, and more!  Some of the features of Teams include:

  • Works with the Microsoft 365 platform. You don’t have to leave Teams to work on Word documents, PowerPoint slides, or OneNotes, and you don’t need to upload and download your video and document files to access them. 
  • Schedule online meetings. 
  • Chat via text, voice, and video. 
  • Use Channels to manage your team and create subchannels for specific topics.  
  • Sign into Teams on your computer, mobile device, and on the web.
