Microsoft Teams

Create, store and collaborate

Microsoft Teams is the default option for teams and departments to create, store and share their documents.

Microsoft Teams makes it easy to access and work on files, and if working in Word, Excel or PowerPoint, you can view, edit, and collaborate in real time (co-author) with them, within Teams. 

University Staff can manage a team within Microsoft Teams which can include staff and/or students as well as collaborate with users external to the University.
