*We are happy to report that in the short amount of time since this filming, 500,000 organizations are now using Microsoft Teams around the world!


It seems like not long ago we were all complaining about the scarcity of tools in the workplace. Nowadays? It’s scarcity of attention we’re battling, caused by an overabundance of tools. We’re constantly toggling between apps to answer emails. Chat with colleagues. Launch meetings. Make to-do lists. Share files. On and on and on. Making us less focused and more stressed.


To ease this stress, we created Microsoft Teams to give you a single platform to get work done, better. A lot of you have been asking how to use (Teams) to its full capabilities. Look no further. Today, we’re happy to share with you 10 Microsoft Teams integrations you can use every day to simplify workflows, refocus your attention, and get back to working smart—not harder. Time to make your apps work for you. For more details on each integration, click the links below or check out our original post.

While I really like the integrative nature of Teams I get frustrated that some of the more popular ones don't end up as native functionality within Teams. I would love to see native "Calendly-like" capabilities in Teams and a Group calendar without having to copy a Group URL from OWA and making a webpage tab.

completely hear you @Tim Banting. Have you tried CalendarBOT?

Hi @Jace Moreno great stuff here.  I just want to call out an important note about the MindMeister integration.  It is not available for all SKUs...only education and enterprises miss out on this one unfortunately. 


See details in my comment on this article and the comments from a MindMeister representative on another TechCommunity post.


@Jeremy Miller GREAT call, thanks for the heads up. We are all over it, just got off the phone with them.


@Jeremy Miller just wanted to follow-up. I spoke to our PMs and the MindMeister team, and we have their integration enabled for all SKUs. (Assuming you're not this person) Have you checked with your IT admin to make sure they've enabled MindMeister in your tenant?

@Jace Moreno The link for the Github integration seems to be Enterprise-only? Is there a version available for normal accounts?

@Jace Moreno Sorry for the very late reply but I am a global admin for the multiple tenants.  I have the ability to add MindMeister in an EDU tenant but not in an Enterprise tenant.
