Microsoft Teams is your central hub for many of the Office 365 products with an emphasis on teamwork. It is an app that helps you and a team have real-time conversations using chat or video calls, securely share and collaborate on files, and attend meetings or plan projects with others at the University of Iowa using the various built-in and add-on collaboration tools. Teams has native access to many of your Office 365 apps including your Outlook Calendar, OneDrive, and OneNote. Additionally, there is integration with other Office 365 apps such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. 

Microsoft Teams is enabled for all Student, Faculty and Staff Hawk IDs as of March 18, 2020.
