What customers say

"Thanks to Lime Networks, we experience more convenience. Teams is particularly handy for communication abroad. We used to call and chat by phone, but now this has become a lot easier. Furthermore, Lime Networks is very involved and works with short lines of communication. They solve various user problems for us, but also broken hardware and connection problems." 

Microsoft Teams

How does Microsoft Teams work?

First we will show you the application. The Microsoft Teams platform places content and conversations side by side and organises activities, chatting, teams, meetings, files and apps.

A team is a collection of people, resources and content around different projects and results. A team is located on the Teams tab of the main navigation bar. A team is represented by a team name, an associated icon and a description.

Channels are sections within a team to further organise a team based on specific projects and topics. Channels contain relative conversations, files, wikis and other tools that can be used by the team.

Tabs organise information in the content area of a channel. These tabs of a channel contain for example Conversations, Files, Notes, Bots, maybe your business applications or for example an Excel sheet/Power BI report.

Teams Navigation

The main navigation bar is located on the left side of the screen.

Activity - your relevant or recent activities in Teams

Chat - your latest 1:1 chats and favourite contacts

Teams - the teams, channels and content you are part of

Calendar - a representation of your Outlook calendar. Here you can also participate in your online meetings with 1 click

Files - your most recently used files as well as your own files stored in OneDrive

Apps - connect to hundreds of (mostly external) applications to add tabs relevant to your team. Think about: Excel, Planner, Power BI but also Asana, Jira, Adobe or many other external applications with which you collaborate with your team.

The secret of teamwork is deliberately encouraging and
healthy team dynamic.
