Microsoft Teams is deeply integrated with SharePoint in Office 365. For example, every team that you create gets a team site in SharePoint, allowing the team to share and store their files in an effective way. In last week’s Teams On Air, I spent time with host, Delanda Coleman to provide an overview of how SharePoint connects with Microsoft Teams bringing in files, sites, pages, list and news articles – right inside the Microsoft Teams user experience in full fidelity.
It's Microsoft Teams + SharePoint for strong teamwork in the hub. Watch the on-demand video below, and then continue reading below to get a sense of all that SharePoint brings inside of Microsoft Teams.
SharePoint is a content service that supports both the day-to-day of teamwork within Microsoft Teams, the broader outreach to the company via Yammer, and targeted communications with email + ‘smart’ attachments in Outlook.
In Microsoft Teams, the default document library of a group-connected team site is the team's Files - which means it's robust, secure, easy to share and take part in advanced document creation like co-authoring and versioning. And beyond files, we are beginning to further integrate additional content managed in SharePoint, content like full sites, pages, lists and info-rich news articles. Keep focused in your hub for teamwork knowing your content appears intact and up-to-date as Teams gives you a view into your content, not an orphaned copy or version. The single source of truth shines through.
You can build out multi-section layout pages and news (like mini dashboards) filled with images, video, maps, Power BI reports, surveys, Twitter feeds, and more … all in line with your text within the context of your message. And then it’s easy to open a chat side-by-side and share your ideas in line with the original, source content – not a version of it, in its full fidelity.
Here’s a quick rundown of all the things you can do today with Microsoft Teams + SharePoint:
As we move forward, we’ve plans to make the Files experience even more robust with advanced metadata, new view capabilities and more. Plus, we’ll improve the ease of adding SharePoint content - fewer clicks, better picker experience - no longer copy/pasting full URL. That’s what we call a tightening of the “time to tab” for timely teamwork!
Try it all today. Work with your files in Microsoft Teams, connect SharePoint news to a Teams’ channel, publish a news article and add it as a tab in Teams, and pull in a full SharePoint list. Get tabular! They’re your tabs, use them 😊.
