- Track notes and action items, share frequently used documents
- Take notes and share follow-ups in chat. It’s harder to get a casual recap in the hallway when there is no hallway. Use an app like Planner, Asana, or Trello to track tasks.
- For something that you usually handle with one meeting and informal, hallway catch-ups, schedule a 15-minute follow-up meeting a few days later. Be sure to include prep work in the meeting invitation.
- In channels, create tabs for important files, websites, or dashboards so the content is available to everyone on the team.
- Customize your virtual workspace
- Pin your favorite 1:1 or group chats so they always appear on the upper left.
- Drag and drop your teams so they are in priority order, and hide teams you don’t work in often.
- Manage notifications in your Profile Settings so you’re only getting them when you want to.
- Install Teams on your mobile so you can join meetings and collaborate – Android.
