What can I do with Teams?

I tried to create a Team and it told me access was denied. Why?

  • This is another feature of Teams. If you just want to chat- click on chat on the left and search for a individual(s) to chat with. A  SharePoint Group integrates with Teams for a department, group, or committee. Users cannot create these, but IT can. Just fill out the SharePoint Group form on Form Central and be sure to check the box that you want the Group to also be a Team.
