Microsoft Teams has been evolving at a great pace lately and now, the tool is really starting to feel complete. In addition to the fact that the very core of the program is well developed, Teams has also opened up for the integrations of other programs. This way you can get a one stop shop in Teams, and get a lot of what you work with in one and the same interface. We have listed 8 popular programs that you can integrate with the collaboration tool.
Wrike is a project tool that works just as well if you want to manage tasks that need to be done in a team as when you want to keep track of your own to-do list.
By integrating Wrike into MS Teams, you can publish data previews directly into conversations. You can see where your colleagues are in all public projects and you can see schedules on shared Gantt charts.
Trello is another popular collaboration tool that can be integrated with Teams. When you integrate Trello, you get a new tab at the top of the chat or in the channel where you can reach lists or message boards. There you can organize and prioritize projects with your colleagues.
3 Survey Monkey
Many people think that Survey Monkey becomes easier to use when you integrate the program with Teams. The basic service for Survey Monkey only lets you send out surveys via email, which many have experienced has made the process of keeping track of how things are going when there are more people collaborating in the same survey. With the integration, you can instead preview surveys and see compiled answers directly in Teams together with your colleagues. You can also do simpler surveys in your Teams channels. This way you can handle a lot of the work you otherwise do in Survey Monkey directly in Teams.
Do you have colleagues in other countries? Then you may recognize that language can sometimes be a barrier to collaboration. Although many today can speak English, it is not always enough and often it may take time to translate messages into another language. By integrating Translatelt you can directly translate messages in many different ways. When you send a message, for example, you can write which language it should translate into. You can also translate a message you received by clicking on the three dots, selecting More actions and then Translate. There are more clever translations available for you and your colleagues to collaborate across borders like never before.
