Microsoft Teams is Microsoft’s platform of the future for project and team collaboration and communications! You can share files with your colleagues and communicate about the status of a project. But Teams can do far more than that. It has the potential to become your single window to access all your applications and documents. Our expert Erik Moll explains in our new Team Up with COMPAREX blogs series how to improve your business productivity and efficiency with Microsoft Teams.
Let’s start with efficiently being able to manage and collaborate on personal and team project based documents. One of the paradigm shifts in Office 365 is that OneDrive for Business has to be your new My Documents. Here is why your OneDrive For Business becomes your new My Documents. You saved the draft for the new campaign in Teams so that your colleagues can contribute to it, the budget plan for the upcoming year is saved in your personal folder on your computer and the birthday card for your boss on your desktop. Three documents, three different storage locations. You end up switching between folders, constantly asking yourself: “Where did I save that?”
Wouldn’t it be nice to have all documents stored in one location accessible from any device, at any time and anywhere? This must not remain wishful thinking. OneDrive for Business and Teams has the potential to bundle all your applications and resources. Within Teams, OneDrive for Business becomes the go-to repository for all your personal business documents and therefore replaces the “my documents” or “personal folder” on your desktop – no matter if it’s personal documents or shared files for collaboration. Files stored in Teams Channels is for business projects purposes.
