Enriching teamwork across devices

Leipzig, 02/13/2018 – Microsoft brings great new value to Office 365 subscribers, with updates that enhance how teams work together and unlock new ways to create and manage content across devices. Teams is not available for customers subscribed to Office 365 Business.

Get more done in Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams brings together everything a team needs in one place. You can integrate the apps and services you need, including Office 365 apps like Excel or a large number of third-party apps. New features in Microsoft Teams make it now an even more powerful hub for teamwork. You will be able to find and use apps in new ways and to command apps, take quick actions, and search - all from the command box. The updates are rolling out automatically and you can expect to see them in your Teams desktop client soon.

Include information from an app in a conversation

There is no need to include a screenshot or a hyperlink to the information anymore. Now you can include interactive cards from apps in conversations the same way you would add an emoji or GIF. With one click, you can bring important information, like a task from Trello, into a channel conversation or chat.

Access a personal view of your apps

The new personal apps space makes it easy for you to access the apps you care about and see all the items that you have been assigned to across apps. You can also easily see items you have recently accessed. In addition, here you will find the new app Who - which allows you to search for people in your organization by name or topic.

Discover apps for Teams in the new Store

Finding new apps and services in Teams is now easier with the new Store, where you can search for apps by name or category, such as “Project management” or “Analytics & BI”.

Command apps from the command box

New is the ability to query or command an app right from the command box. You can search for information in an app and easily insert a specific result into a chat or channel conversation.

Take quick actions with slash commands

Slash commands are shortcuts you can type in the command box to quickly perform tasks or navigate Teams.

Work together more effectively with updates to iOS and Mac

New Office 365 capabilities for iOS and Mac enhance how teams create content together, make it easier to produce advanced documents, presentations, and spreadsheets from anywhere, and introduce new ways to search, preview, and interact with files. Check for updates on your device, some devices may receive these updates later than others.

Co-authoring for iOS and Mac

Now it is easier for individuals to work together across devices with the general availability of co-authoring in Word, PowerPoint, and Excel for iOS and Mac. Whether you work on a Mac, PC, or mobile device, you will know who else is working with you in a document, see where they are working, and view changes.

Automatically save your work on Mac

Today also marks the general availability of AutoSave in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint on Mac for Office 365 subscribers who store their documents in OneDrive and SharePoint. Your latest changes are now automatically stored in the cloud and you can also view and restore content from earlier versions of the document at any time with support for version history.

Drag and drop content and files on iOS

The Office and OneDrive iOS apps now support drag and drop for content and files. Now Office 365 subscribers on iPad and iPhone can easily drag and drop photos, graphs, and other objects from a variety of sources into documents, presentations, and spreadsheets from other Office apps or OneDrive.

Access OneDrive files from more iOS apps

OneDrive for iOS now natively supports the new iOS 11 Files app. This means iPhone and iPad users can upload, access, edit, and save content to OneDrive or SharePoint from any iOS app that supports File app integration.

Preview more file types with OneDrive for iOS

Microsoft redesigned the OneDrive for iOS app with a more detailed list view, making it easier to scan file names, see relevant information, and sort files by specific attributes. The updated OneDrive for iOS app also creates crisp thumbnails and supports previews for over 130 file types, so you can open, view, and share the right content without leaving the app.

Search across your organization with Outlook for iOS

The new search experience in Outlook for iOS leverages the Microsoft Graph to surface results from your top contacts, upcoming travel itineraries, package deliveries, recent attachments, and more.
