You’ve made the transition to Microsoft Teams, but if all you are using it for is chats and meetings, then you’re only using a small portion of the features. Teams is incredibly powerful for team building – way better than Skype for Business. And with BindTuning web parts for Teams, you can boost the usage of this powerful tool to create really cool communication spaces that unite organizations, partners and cross-functional teams. Here are 5 great things you can build today in minutes.
1. Company News Space
Still sending a monthly email newsletter? Put an end to long emails with a short shelf-life. Instead put your company news where your audience spends the bulk of their time – in Microsoft Teams. It’s as easy as using the BindTuning News web part. Let’s show you how we implemented it here at BindTuning.
Beginning this month, all of our Partner Program news is now in Microsoft Teams, driving our partners to our shared collaboration space. We simply posted an announcement in the conversations tab and when a partner clicks on Partner News, they’ll see every news item displayed in blocks, along with the date. The BindTuning News web part is simple to set up and provides several customizable page layouts. You can link to new articles, blog content, external content, really anything. Fresh content is curated all month long and accessible to users on-demand.
2. Corporate Images Space
No more pixelated images, when your corporate logos are accessible in Microsoft Teams. Create an easily accessible image gallery, where users can quickly access your company branded images, in the size and specifications they need. Using the BindTuning Image Gallery web part display thumbnail images of logos and provide image search capabilities as well.
3. Team Communication (FAQ) Space
Give users the answers they need with a dynamic accordion list, displayed in a tab in Microsoft Teams. Incredibly useful for any kind of FAQ’s – new product announcements, information about acquisitions, mergers or even details about the holiday party. For educators it is especially useful to address new student concerns. The BindTuning Accordion web part consolidates and organizes large volumes of information and the search bar makes finding the right information effortless.
4. Trade Show Team Space
Give your corporate travelers access to everything they need in Teams. Microsoft Teams is incredibly easy to access from mobile devices, so why not use it to coordinate attendees at events. Create a quick directory of your booth staff, speakers, attendees using BindTuning People web part.
While you are building a trade show space in Microsoft Teams, make sure the team gets easy access to alerts during the event. Alerts are quickly consolidated on one tab for easy access from Teams with BindTuning Alerts web part.
5. Corporate Training Space
Create a space for specialized training events. Using the BindTuning Filters web part, give users the ability to filter training offerings by any number of filters. For our Partners, we created a tab in Teams where they can access previously recorded meetings and training sessions, on-demand.
