Microsoft Teams is a cloud based digital hub for teamwork in Office 365. Team conversations, files, meetings, and apps are shared live together in a single shared workspace. Users can work together using chat instead of email and use channels instead of just file folders. It's a workspace where a team can securely edit files at the same time and see likes at mentions and replies with a single tap.

Until a faculty or staff member is added to a team they can still use the chat feature similar to Skype for Business. Once a faculty or staff member is added to a team they will be able to take advantage of the full collaboration features.

The chat feature is ideal for individual and small group collaboration.
The chat collaboration tool provides your team with the ability to work together and share information via a common space. With chat, you can have private one-on-one or group conversations that are not in the public team channel.
Enjoy conversations with your teams using popular social features, such as adding emojis and custom memes.
