MS Teams

Information on using Microsoft Teams

Teams is available to all registered University of Aberdeen staff and students. External sharing is also possible, allowing you to invite external colleagues (i.e. non ‘abdn’ domain) to be Guests.

A unified communication and collaboration platform, Teams combines workplace messaging, video/audio meetings, telephone calls and voicemail, file sharing and storage, and app integration. And integration with Office 365 applications allows collaboration in real time. Schedule meetings via the Teams interface or by using Outlook’s Teams plugin.

Teams is on all University managed staff devices. On personal devices, access via any Office 365 app; or download from Microsoft. On mobiles, download the mobile app from your app store.
