Teams & SharePoint: Intrinsically Linked
Microsoft Teams is the communication and collaboration solution that’s revolutionised how organisations work remotely.
Teams uses SharePoint as its backend file storage solution and is an integral part of the Microsoft Modern Workplace.
But did you know that when you create a new team or group in Microsoft Teams, you are automatically creating a SharePoint team site in the background? So many organisations are using SharePoint without realising.
With this in mind, if you’ve got a strategy for using Microsoft Teams in your organisation – but aren’t considering how you’ll use SharePoint – you’re only getting the benefit of half the solution.
Using SharePoint For Teams
How ever you are currently using Microsoft Teams, SharePoint Online can be developed to enhance the experience.
If you’re managing projects via Teams, SharePoint with Teams can be used to store and collaborate on relevant files and documents as you’d expect. But it can also support the project in other ways such as progress Gantt charts, the latest updates, countdown timers to key deadlines, time logging and more.
Benefits For Field & Remote Teams
Teams and SharePoint make excellent partners for field service. Agents onsite with customers can take photos of issues that are then automatically stored in the relevant areas of SharePoint Online.
Thanks to SharePoint’s flexible access, this information can then be accessed by internal teams and shared with customers directly from SharePoint as well to help describe problems.
Enhance Microsoft Teams
The uses for SharePoint for Teams are practically limitless. Teams can be further extended with Microsoft apps such as Tasks (to schedule your team’s activities) and a huge range of third-party apps are available.
Linking to SharePoint through Teams also means relevant Power Apps (such as expenses or mileage) are accessible easily on the go.
SharePoint for Teams revolutionises the way your organisation works and collaborates. To discuss your requirements or for a demo, please get in touch:
