UWM is where we work. Teams is how we work.
We all have different roles at the University, and different styles when it comes to managing our work. Teams is a platform within Microsoft 365 (previously Office 365) that brings together all the elements you’ll need for your work day.
From something as simple as chatting with a co-worker online to creating a customized space for a few people to work on shared items; Teams has so many features for content, communication, and collaboration. Use it independently or with a few colleagues, the platform has so many features – use the ones you need, explore new options and let Teams work for you.
