Configuring Microsoft SharePoint
for Teams

Intellico works together with our managed IT service division to deliver combined Microsoft SharePoint for Teams solutions for organisations of all sizes.

Teams & SharePoint Online

Microsoft Teams is the communication and collaboration solution that’s revolutionised how organisations work remotely.

Did you know that when you create a new team in Microsoft Teams, you are automatically creating a SharePoint team site in the background. Teams uses SharePoint as its backend file storage solution and is an integral part of the Microsoft Modern Workplace.

So if you’re planning a move to Teams but you’re not planning to develop SharePoint as well, you’re only getting half the benefit.

Using SharePoint With Teams

How ever you are using Teams, SharePoint Online can be developed to enhance the experience.

If you’re managing projects via Teams, SharePoint with Teams can be used to store and collaborate on relevant files and documents as you’d expect. But it can also support the project in other ways such as progress Gantt charts, the latest updates, countdown timers to key deadlines, time logging and more.

Benefits For Field Service

Teams and SharePoint make excellent partners for field service. Agents onsite with customers can take photos of issues that are then automatically stored in the relevant areas of SharePoint Online. Thanks to SharePoint’s flexible access, this information can then be accessed by internal teams and shared with customers directly from SharePoint as well to help describe problems.

Extend Microsoft Teams

The uses for SharePoint for Teams are practically limitless. Teams can be further extended with Microsoft apps such as Tasks (to schedule your team’s activities) and a huge range of third-party apps are available.

Linking to SharePoint through Teams also means relevant Power Apps (such as expenses or mileage) are accessible easily on the go.

Development with Intellico

As a Microsoft Gold partner, we’re experts in SharePoint for Teams development. Our SharePoint projects drive collaboration and working efficiency across organisations. Meanwhile our Teams installations have transformed business communication, replacing traditional calling systems with modern and smarter solutions.

If you’re about to adopt Teams, Akita can oversee both parts of the project and ensure you also get the most functionality out of SharePoint. And if you’re already using Teams, contact us to see if we could help you do more with SharePoint.
