What is Microsoft Teams?

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 instead of email, channels instead of just file folders. It's a workspace where you and your Team can securely share, edit, save files, 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.


Accessing Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams is available by opening a browser and signing into Western's Office 365 and choosing Teams. 

Note:  Teams does not work in the Safari browser. Mac users will need to use another browser such as Chrome or Firefox. There is also a desktop app for Teams available for download . For mobile apps, please see your particular app store.
