What is Microsoft Teams? Microsoft Teams is a chat-based app or program that makes collaboration and communication with members of your ‘team’ effortless. Just some of it’s helpful and powerful features include document sharing, chat function with team members and the ability to hold online meetings.

Microsoft Teams Tip 1

How to stop a Microsoft Teams Post or Chat being sent when your press the ‘Enter’ key.

The Format icon format icon is the first icon in the Toolbar at the bottom of the screen when you create a Post (Conversation) or a Chat. This icon expands the Post or Chat window and provides you with a toolbar to format your message.  In addition, if you hit the Enter key while you are typing, it creates a new paragraph rather than sending the message!

When creating a Post, Teams will default to a New conversation, however, you can also choose to send an Announcement. This provides you with a layout for your Announcement with placeholders for a Headline and a Subhead.  To add a bit of pizzazz to your Announcement, you can upload a background image.

Select Announcement from the dropdown list, type your content and Send.
