With most of the businesses worldwide now resorting to the work from home scheme, demand has grown for some reliable and secure team communication tools. While some of these apps are more open and easy to use for general purposes like catching up with friends and colleagues, there are some that are focussed more on the corporates. One such application is Microsoft’s very own ‘Microsoft Teams’.
By definition, Microsoft Teams is a proprietary business communication platform developed by Microsoft, as part of the Microsoft 365 family of products. One can compare it with similar peer software like Slack or Skype for Business, but Microsoft has given this, a lot of useful features and functionalities, that make it, a go-to for organizations around the world.
One of the most useful features of the Microsoft Teams platform is the ability to take meeting notes. This feature helps you jot down important notes that you may need to bring up during the meeting. If you are hosting a meeting based on some critical points, you can make a note of the same before the meeting starts. Also, you can share these meeting notes with the team, after the meetings are done, as a kind of summary of everything that was discussed during the same.
