Introduction

 

MS Teams is a popular internal collaboration tool from Microsoft.

With Vtiger CRM integration, Teams' users can view contact and deal information directly in MS Teams Channel and Chat tabs. Along with this, Teams' users can add dashboards to their Personal and Channel tabs.

 

MS Teams is used by over 100 million users across organizations in all industries. Using MS Teams, you can,

  • Create channels for topic-wise or group-wise collaboration. Channels are dedicated sections for a team to discuss a project, topic, etc. 
  • Collaborate in real-time with a chat-like interface within the channels.
  • Create online meetings and share screens with up to 10,000 participants.
  • Chat and make video calls with individuals.
  • Use virtual backgrounds that allow participants to place themselves ‘anywhere’ they want to be.
  • Get recording transcripts.
