Microsoft Teams is a group collaboration app available to faculty, staff and students through Western's Office 365 Microsoft Campus Agreement. It helps you collaborate using chat and channels to converse and file share. It's a workspace where you and your team can securely upload, share, edit, save files, manage a calendar, see likes, @mentions, and replies. Any documents, spreadsheets, presentations that are shared within a Team are stored in your Team environment so every Team member always has access to the latest version.
Disclaimer: Microsoft Teams is a cloud-hosted system and while its use is optional, all usage must comply with Western's Computing, Technology & Information Resources Policy and Data Classification Standards.
