- Chatting to colleagues in real time

Collaboration in real time: Microsoft Teams Project Management
Microsoft Teams goes beyond simply calling and chatting to colleagues; it can be an incredibly powerful tool for different departments to manage projects.
You can create a dedicated Microsoft Teams site to collaborate with members of your project. Blending in the calendar to book video meetings, using tasks and to-do lists to monitor project progress and integrating more Microsoft tools such as Power Automate mean that Microsoft Teams can house everything your teams need on its flexible and powerful platform.

The modern workplace leverages the cloud to keep your organisation together, ensuring your team has access to important information and access to people, regardless of where they are or what device they use.
The Microsoft Teams app will allow your organisation to communicate and collaborate on the go so that they stay connected.
