Microsoft Teams, often referred to as Team, is a collaboration and communication platform that is ideal for business, especially if they have remote workers. Teams uses video meetings, file storage, chat functions, project management and application integration all within their one tool. Teams is the teamwork hub for the Microsoft 365 Office suite.

How to Communicate in Teams
Posts are organized by date and then threaded to keep communication organized. You can respond to a thread by clicking “reply.” If you’d like to notify someone specifically, you can @ them. You can also @ the entire team or channel to notify everyone.
Conversations in Teams
Start a new conversation by selecting the team and channel and clicking “send.” This can also be done with one or more individuals. This is done by clicking the “to” field and adding in the people you want. Once a conversation is started, all messages stay within that chain.
Impromptu and Scheduled Meetings in Teams
Within this application, you can schedule meetings or you can also have impromptu on the fly meetings. To schedule a meeting, click the Calendar icon and press “+ New Meeting.” To start a meeting on the whim, click the Channel you want and click “reply” then click the camera icon.
