Shortcuts to maximise your Teams function.

by Florence on September 30, 2020

Following from our previous webinars on the usage of Teams, we have shared more Teams shortcuts in this webinar to further enhance your experience with Teams in your work.  

These are some of the helpful shortcuts you can use to your advantage: 

  1. Integrate Microsoft apps and third-party apps to the left-hand sidebar of your Teams dashboard for convenient access without needing to open a new browser to launch your preferred app. 
  2. Following the first point, you can easily customise the left-hand sidebar. Select ‘unpin’ on the app you do not use daily and add on the apps you prefer instead for your convenience. 
  3. Edit your documents on OneDrive directly that is integrated with your Teams dashboard and it will be automatically synced to your Office 365 account. 
  4. Do your work anywhere as you can access files and Microsoft applications on the browser version if you log in with your Office 365 account. 
  5. Directly translate your foreign colleagues’ message with a Translate shortcut available on Teams. 
  6. Create new channels for different matters under a department channel with the Manage Team option as an owner of the channel. 
  7. You can also communicate directly by adding an external user who is using a different email domain via Teams Chat. Point to note that external users do not need a Microsoft license to access Teams Chat. 
  8. You can also monitor how your team has been using Teams under the chat channel’s Analytics option. 
  9. Need assistance with some of the unfamiliar features on Teams? Click on Help and there are videos, articles, and Q&As for you to refer to on the same dashboard. 
  10. Add a Planner tab to your Chat channel to create and assign tasks with your team members. 
  11. LastlyMicrosoft Ignite makes yearly announcement on new product releases and changes, so check them out if you need information on certain Microsoft products.
