Boost productivity

Apps for Teams can boost productivity beyond the usual Teams gains. Here’s how:

Communicate more quickly with apps that support standups, deliver real-time feedback with surveys, and keep your projects moving forward.

Collaborate more seamlessly by using the @Mention feature to refer to your app in the Command box in Teams to give users global access to your app while they’re anywhere in Teams. Take advantage of whiteboard apps to bring your ideas to life in real time.

Show appreciation and recognize peers with a tangible gesture of gratitude shared across the team.
