This week we look at how to reduce the emails in your inbox after the weekend or even when you have come back from holiday. Have you ever lost an hour or even half a day catching up with emails?
The worst part of email is conversations that were from last week that are not relevant to this week. Shifting through all that noise is hurting businesses and even as staff members you may feel that you have to read the emails in your own time with the workloads you have each day.
We have a solution that can benefit all parties. This way you don't need to be part of conversations when you are off and you can come in and out of conversations as and when you need.
Microsoft Teams allows you to work as a team, sharing your communication, files and even video calling each other (even from a smart phone). This way you can get the information you need without sending long emails to each other, reference one file and get the answers you need in minutes.
Microsoft Teams is part of Office 365 to get the best use of it's features, but for files and communications, you can bring in Teams using your existing IT set up.

Still using Skype for Business?

Here are some reasons why you should utilise Microsoft Teams instead of Skype for Business.
